Toronto has a new superhero. Sort of.

The Globe reports that local artist Jason Loo is currently finalizing a new comic, set in Toronto. It stars a super-powerless vigilante called The Pitiful Human-Lizard. Like any superhero worth his spandex, the Lizard (real name Lucas Barrett) has his own rogue’s gallery of nemeses. Chief among them is Rabb the Malevolent (pictured above), who bears a passing resemblance to a certain Toronto politician, who is the mayor of the city, and who is Rob Ford, specifically.

In real life, Rob Ford may be too bungling and sweaty to qualify as anything resembling a “supervillain.” But it’ll be nice to see him live in all his cartoony infamy in Loo’s comic.
