If collectors haven’t already locked up every available issue, you might still be able to get a copy of the Marvel comic from late August featuring Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He provides wise and ethical counsel to a squad of Canadian superheroes known as Alpha Flight and then steps into the boxing ring with Iron Man’s alter-ego Tony Stark for a few rounds before returning to his day job.
That heroic portrayal mirrors the high hopes that Canadians placed on his government to provide real change. But to be worth their salt, heroes must rise to confront the greatest of threats. And the defining threat of our time is climate change.
