It’s been four days since Americans went to the polls.

And finally the result is clear: Biden has defeated Trump.

While the crucial task of counting votes continues, Trump is busy trying to convince his supporters that the whole thing is a sham. But networks have called the election for Biden.

So tensions are running high, to say the least.

Everyone is finding different ways of dealing with this. And since people took a deep breath and realised that Trump has likely (but not definitely) been defeated, memes have been everywhere.

But now something’s come out of the meme-verse (and Marvel-verse) that’s making people truly speechless.

Director John Handem Piette has turned the finale of Avengers: Endgame, the biggest battle in the Marvel universe, into the US election.

The Bizarre compilation video features Joe Biden as Captain America and Trump as villain Thanos.

Other people to appear are Barack Obama as Black Panther, Pete Buttigeig as Spiderman and Elon Musk as Iron Man.

As the battle hurtles towards its conclusion, John Lewis, John McCain, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and, most strangely, Sean Connery are brought back from the dead in the most bizarre and dramatic way.

It’s 2 minutes of pure, unfiltered weirdness and we can’t stop watching it.

People have a lot of thoughts on it…
