You’re maybe thinking…. how does the Marvel Universe collide with the Philippine and their president, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo?

The context:

The Marvel Universe has been breached by Skrulls, an alien race that shape shifts and have infiltrated every super- powered organization on Earth. Their main goal is to have a full-scale invasion. The invasion tosses the Marvel Universe into chaos and has hero vs. hero.

In book #5,  a voice of Skrull uses television as a way to communicate their motives on why they are invading the Earth. In this scene figures like Obama, the pope, Tom Cruise, Bin Ladin, and GMA are illustrated as seen on tv.  In GMA’s illustration they have  her saying, ” The earth is now part of the Skrull empire.”3949611667_c46a14490d

You’re maybe scratching your head and thinking:
Did Marvel notice all the Human Rights violations that GMA committed?
Do the Filipino people have an insider in Marvel, that would expose how bad GMA is?
Did they mean that GMA is a puppet of U.S. Imperialism…. ooopps I mean.. Skrull?
Why is this guy writing about, how and what bad did GMA do?

Facts about GMA:

  • Hello Garci scandal– where audio recordings of a phone call conversation between President Arroyo and then Election Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano allegedly talking about the rigging of the 2004 national election results, were released to the public. This escalated, when the minority of the lower house of Congress attempted to impeach Arroyo. This was blocked by Arroyo’s coalition in September 2005. The administration has denied some of the allegations and challenged others in court. The House of Representatives, which is dominated by Arroyo’s coalition allies, blocked attempts for an impeachment trial.
  • On Feb 24, 2006 GMA  Proclamation 1017 a defacto martial law under the guise of a ” State of Emergency” which gives her the power to issue warrantless (and until then unconstitutional) arrests, detainments, and even assassination aimed at progressive Filipino Organizations. Six leftist representatives – Satur Ocampo, Teodoro Casiño, and Joel Virador of Bayan Muna, Liza Maza of GABRIELA, and Crispin Beltran and Rafael Mariano of Anakpawis – were charged with rebellion. Crispin Beltran of Anakpawis was arrested on February 25 on charges of inciting to sedition and rebellion. The decree was lifted on March 3, 2006. However the opposition, lawyers, and concerned citizens filed a complaint in the Supreme Court contesting the constitutionality of PP 1017. The court, on May 4, declared the proclamation constitutional, but said it was illegal to issue warrantless arrests and seize private institutions.
  • Caliberated Pre-Emptive Response.
  • Human Rights Issues

By supporting the Skrulls, there is an assumption that she is one herself. In this case, the Skrulls represent the U.S. Imperialist- the real ones in cotrol of the Philippines.. GMA is a puppet who is controlled by someone other than herself but the hand of the ruling elite.

The people are the ones who will expose her as the alien from the comics and once she is exposed they will bring her down.
