With liberals embracing the imagery of Wonder Woman as a symbol of their radical feminist views, DC Comics decided to draw a line when it comes to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.
With the 29-year-old former bartender being elevated to heroine status by Democrats, sweeping in with her failed socialist beliefs to save the day, the comic book publisher is shutting down a small comics company portraying the Bronx dimwit in attire similar to that of Wonder Woman, the New York Post reported.
Devil’s Due Comics produced a cover with Ocasio-Cortez decked out in a metallic tiara and blue skirt standing triumphantly over a knocked out red elephant — how’s that for violent rhetoric?
“Ocasio-Cortes and the Freshman Force,” the cover boldly proclaimed.

DC Comics issued a cease-and-desist, urging Devil’s Due Comics not to distribute the 250 planned copies of the special cover, the paper reported.
A second cover was also featured, with Ocasio-Cortez wearing a non-offending white pants suit — unless you have Hillary Clinton fatigue.

Liberals know full well the power of pop culture and in the event you’re not sure of the small comics publisher’s political makeup, here is the description of the edition that may offer a few clues:
“It’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the ‘Freshmen Force’ (of Congress) vs. the establishment in this all-new special! Comic creators converge to celebrate the election of the most diverse group of freshman Representatives in history, and spare no-one in this satire that takes aim at Washington. From the house that brought you Barack the Barbarian! Featuring comics from various artists and bonus activities and games.” […]
Naturally, there’s a Trump element to the endeavor — after all, love him or hate him, Trump sells: “Grab a hamberder and cup of covfefe and prepare to enjoy this read!”
In another cover, the Bronx Bolshevik is seen with an American flag draped around her shoulders and wearing a costume very similar to Wonder Woman — it had an A on her chest, as opposed to a W.
According to The Young Turk’s Jonathan Larsen, this was the cover that prompted the action from DC Comics.
It was to be a limited 250 issue print, and despite the cease and desist, there are some copies available, but the original $30 cost jumped as high as $70 on Ebay.

“The cover in question was the NY Collector Cave retailer exclusive cover by artist Carla Cohen, which as you can see below does bear a strong resemblance to DC’s Wonder Woman. Ocasio-Cortez has an A symbol where the typical W would go, but it’s not hard to make the leap to Diana of Themyscira,” ComicBook.com reported.
As sad as it is that so many Americans eagerly view a poorly-informed Ocasio Cortez as somewhat of a super hero, leave it to social media users to put it all into perspective.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Saw an article regarding AOC as Wonder Woman. She is definitely a Wonder Woman. She makes me wonder if she has an clue as to what she is doing.

Her super power is chasing evil corporations out of town that were going to provide hundreds of jobs and bring in millions of dollars to the community. We’re all sorry to see her go. ???????? pic.twitter.com/eoeTnomAN7

So she transforms from Bozo the Clown to Xena warrior princess??? That’s the best they could come up with?

Her powers include reverse clarity, the ability to perfectly cite the complete opposite reason for why a problem exists.

Is her weakness a garage disposal?
