The Pepper Spray Cop Makes His Way into Comic Book History [Humor]

By now, most people have seen the video of UC Davis police officer Lt. John Pike shooting pepper spray in the faces of passive, seated student protesters over the weekend; cell phone footage of the incident quickly went viral, transforming Pike not only into an instant symbol of police brutality and a flashpoint for criticisms about how force is used against protesters engaged in peaceful civil disobedience, but also a hilarious Internet meme that mocks the mustachioed policeman. The now-infamous image of Pike — a.k.a. Pepper Spray Cop — deploying his canister has has been inserted into everything from fine art to Disney movies (including The Lion King, which made me ROFLOL).

We at ComicsAlliance couldn’t help but wonder what this meme might look like if it manifested at crucial moments in comic book history. See the ensuing madness of our Photoshops below.
