Is Stormy Daniels ready to join the MCU?
Sound far-fetched? She’s already taken the first step in joining the likes of Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk.
“Political Power: Stormy Daniels” showcases the erstwhile Stephanie Clifford in graphic novel form. The release is timed to coincide with the former porn star’s new memoir, “Full Disclosure” (out Oct. 2).
Let’s let the company behind the comic book saga set the stage:
Stephanie Clifford (stage name Stormy Daniels) rose from the strip clubs of Baton Rouge to the top of the adult film industry. Today, however, she is best known as the woman at the center of a hush money scandal involving the president of the United States. Through threats, lawsuits, and politically motivated arrests Clifford has refused to back down in her demand that the president be held responsible for his actions. Witness her journey from scrappy opportunist to unlikely feminist icon in the newest issue of Political Power!
Unlikely is putting it mildly.
The book itself should be a swift read. It comes in at a tight 24 pages courtetsy of writer/director Joe Paradise.
Previous TidalWave titles include tomes dedicated to Hillary Clinton, Trump, Colin Powell, Rand Paul, Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy and Condoleezza Rice.
Need more Resistance? Why not pick up the company’s ode to former FBI chief via “Political Power: James Comey.”
It’s hardly the first example of pop culture institutions embracing Daniels.
The actress scored a fawning profile in Vogue last month, along with her ambitious lawyer Michael Avenatti.
She famously appeared during a “Saturday Night Live” cold open. Playing herself, she told the show’s audience “a storm was coming,” earning cheers from the show’s progressive audience.
Her January appearance on “Jimmy Kimmy Live” drew negative reviews, though. She wasn’t very forthright, and critics worried she hadn’t done serious damage to the Trump presidency.
