Hi, back from lurking mode because of this piece of news I just heard of.

From the Pope thread:
quote:
Expect John Paul II in the next Marvel vs Capcom game, he's a marvel character after all, and they have saved from oblivion even stranger characters...

And we now know the King of Spain is actually... Magneto!

Many-a-link:
- One (Scroll down):
A wallpaper from The Pulse: House of M Special shipping in July is also posted, offering color art of the page showing either Magneto or Quicksilver looking regal after receiving fashion tips from the King of Spain, apparently, as a blogger in Spain pointed out.

- Two (Scroll down too):
Hail To The King, Baby

Currently traveling the web at faster than light speeds, this is the side by side picture of Spain’s King Juan Carlos and Magneto from the upcoming House of M: The Pulse.
I believe the comparison shot originated at this blog, which several of our European ATR readers pointed us towards.

There’s also some debate as to whether the pic was simply used as reference or whether it was light-boxed from the original photograph.


Pic1.
Pic2. The left one is the actual King of Spain.

The original blog where it began

Piece of news in a national wide paper

Apparently the Royal House's lawyers are trying to sue the author/s for doing that, probably because they're freely giving away to a comic character the most important simbols of the country that only the King of Spain may wear, such as his ring and the "Toisón de Oro", which I don't know what is it, and it's too late and I'm too lazy to check.

Sad, really...





So adorable... Gluttony

According to Jeb Bush, no, it's a Republic, but probably any other source will tell you otherwise.
