A new twist on an old Captain America comic book supervillain is stirring up social media notice for some unsettling similarities with Donald Trump.

Comic book artist Jason Latour introduced the character — MODAAK, or "mental organism designed as America's king" — in the new "2016 Spider Gwen Annual," U.K-based The Telegraph reports. 

The archvillain — a variation of the original Captain America bad guy MODOK, or "mental organism designed only for killing" — goes up against a black, female Captain America in the storyline after insulting another character as "foreign filth."

Twitter posters took immediate notice.

One panel even takes a poke at the size of the supervillain's hands, when MODAAK threatens to "crush" Captain America "in my powerful hands," only to have the super-heroine knock him out with her shield.

The GOP presumptive presidential nominee found the subject of his hands a touchy subject on the campaign trail. 

Marvel is not the only comics publisher using the 2016 political landscape for storyline fodder.

Stormfront Entertainment release graphic novels this year about Democratic rivals Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, The Hill has reported.
