David Cameron is being quoted, almost word for word, by Marvel villains. Yes, really.

The second volume of Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders was published earlier this month.

The series takes place on Battleworld, a dystopian planet in which two cities, one good and one evil, are separated by a wall.

The 'evil' city is run by Victor von Doom of Fantastic Four fame, who invades the 'good' city of Yinsen when the second volume begins.

Early in the issue the reader is brought to a detention camp, where a guard tells captives that their rights are being stripped.

Now, where have we heard that before?

Oh dear. That is a quote attributed to Cameron to his National Security Council just days after the general election.

If you want to find it for yourself the quotation is found on page four of the volume, written by Al Ewing.

Marvel Comics has been contacted for comment.
