Superheroes of the CIA in Venezuela

Globovision, a television station in Venezuela, in conflict with the government, created this cartoon after RCTV lost its license. In the cartoon the League of Marvel Superheroes (Batman, Robin, Superman and Wonderwoman) are CIA agents, looking to discover why they can not find any independent television channels. They discover the monster emitting Bolivarian Revolutionary Signals and attack it. Above, a ship carrying government members attack as they "must destroy the imperialists".

I wonder if Marvel will sue for copywrite infringement ...

Not a very subtle statement.
I haven't seen an American cartoon so blatantly attack Bush--though I wonder what the results would be?

Definitely provides incite into the grand illusions of the CIA workers at Globovision.

Marvel would sue if they were aware. They love their copyrights. Hulk Hogan wasn't Hulk for free.

Very funny.

Btw, this are DC comics superheroes, not marvel superheroes.
