Saskatchewan doesn't get a lot of the love usually dished out to Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia. So those that live in Regina would have been excited that their city was featured in the Avengers comic book.
Well, some probably aren't thrilled that the Queen City suffers extensive damage following the impact of a "evolution bomb."
Destroyed buildings and mutating people isn't quite the image Regina was hoping for, but the comic book writers could have picked another non-Canadian city for its target.
Marvel Comics released a statement pointing out that "In the city of Regina, we got to further flesh out the incredible Canadian landscape into the Marvel universe and expose our readers to a hidden gem from our northern neighbours."
Regina isn't the only Canada element that suffers in the story. An all-Canadian superhero team called Omega Flight can't stop what is going on. Of course, this leads to the appearance of the Avengers.
In the comic book realm, this is pretty cool. Regina, considered the Jewel of the Prairies, gets some well-deserved publicity. The publicity might help drive people to see what Regina looks like, minus any bombs.
