The power of hope and change vs "Fear itself" is seen all over marvel’s next few series. Let the “Dark Reign” begin said “Marvel” and we see the rise of another icon on the stage of both worlds. "The Green Goblin” aka “Norman Osborn” one of Spider-man first villains. In our world "Barack Obama and John McCain" are up for the leader of the free world. America is introduced to “John McCain's” running mate, former governor of Alaska "Sarah Louise Palin." Out pops, in true marvel style a new player “Victoria Hand.“ Both women play second banana to a man who is seen as the dark side of politics. "McCain's" war mongering and steadfastness on the campaign trail, he present himself as a patriot. Meanwhile "Fox news" and pundits like "Rush Limbaugh" use fear to paint “Barack Obama” as a non-American, evil, Muslim, villain trying to bring down America.
Quote from "Norman Osborn" on Marvel.com
"Today's a new day. So listen carefully... this is how it's going to be. As you all know, I, Norman Osborn, have been given the keys to the kingdom. Tony Stark is out. S.H.I.E.L.D. is no longer. I am heading a new world peacekeeping task force that includes the Initiative and the Avengers franchises. And as far as I am concerned, that is good news for all of you."
“Norman Osborn” Takes over the country in this twisted tale of “Dark Reign,” turning “S.H.I.E.L.D” into “H.A.M.M.E.R,” starting his own "Dark Avengers" and vowing to protect the world as the “Iron Patriot.” Turning the heroic efforts of the real “Avengers” into the failed work of a corrupt and incompetent organization. In our world American politics takes a dark turn as the Republicans distance themselves from "Bush" and create the fiction that is Still felt today that the president Elect “Barack Obama” is not even American. Now the roles changes as in “Fallen son the death of "Captain America" mirrors the political death of " G.W. Bush " he becomes “Captain America” and is sacrificed for the benefit of republican party. In the “Marvel universe” we see Captain America Martyred in the "Fallen Son" story arc to make way for "Norman Osborn. Obama and the his party are now cast as the "New Avengers" and “Obama” is now cast as"Luke Cage" and the democrats as his team fighting against the powers that be.
“The death of Captain America hits the Marvel Universe — hard! Be there as superstar Jeph Loeb teams with the industry’s top artists on a story that will have everyone talking, navigating the turbulent post-Civil War landscape!”
The readers can only follow along as marvel twist and turns around the events of the our world. The financial implosion can be seen as “The Hood” Taking control of the underworld as big business has always been one of the worst evil's "Marvel" and comics in general have written about. “Avenger vs X-man” is a tale of two sides set against each other. The "Mutants /Republican” a now minority fight to keep “Hope Summers/the Government” under control and the "Avengers" and "Captain America" doing what they think is right take “Hope” and protect her from the now “Phoenix “ powered Leader of the X-men.
"The newest Nova crash lands on Earth, warning vaguely of oncoming doom before lapsing into a coma. Based off the energy signature on his uniform, The Avengers deduce that the warning is about the approaching return of the Phoenix Force, which is heading to Earth to choose a new host, with teenage Mutant messiah, Hope Summers being the prime candidate"
Romney and the Republicans are now cast as the Mutants who again Change the world into a place where they are might and right mixed. While Obama and the democrats take on the roles of the "Avengers" again, fighting to save the country while painted as evil by the Mutant leader. With the power of the "Phoenix" the mutant leaders are super powered and unstoppable in the eyes of the world. Meanwhile "Romney" and his "Super P.A.C.s" filled by some of the most powerful men in politics turn the media “Fox News,” against the now politically weaker "Obama" after his four year fight to dig the country out of a recession.

We Come to the end of “Avengers.vs.X-Men.” both side leave the world destroyed as they fight over who is best for the world. The Democrats fight the Republicans for our country and its future, both sides wanting to prove whose ideology will be best for the American people. In the real world as in the comic the true loser in these battles are the common man. We come full circle to "Ultimate avengers" Where Captain America / Obama" becomes president and the country is divided and torn asunder by a mad God/Speaker of the house "Modi/John Boehner" who tries to destroy "Obama/Captain America" with his political/god Like power. In the end both Presidents unite their country and live to fight again.
