Every now and then I see comics analogies & references where I least expect them, and documenting them here seems like a good idea.

Here's one from a sports article on FiveThirtyEight.com --  "The Vikings Are Doom Dressed as Hope":

"Still more rare, though, is the team that doesn’t simply disappoint its fans, but does so in a thematically consistent manner. For the Minnesota Vikings, this means being betrayed by their greatest strength at their moments of greatest need — Napoleon blundering at Waterloo or Wolverine’s adamantium-laced skeleton turned against him by Magneto."

Yikes!
