A mysterious poster depicting Russian President Dmitry Medvedev as Captain America, a skinny kid turned comic super hero, appeared last Tuesday in Moscow causing Kremlin irritation.

Wearing a black leather jacket and leather gloves, the Russian president is shown in a spoof movie poster for Captain America: The First Avenger, a movie which hit US screens earlier last month.

The words “Captain Russia: The First Ruler” are emblazoned across the Moscow poster.

Instead of a shield the comic superhero holds in the movie poster, the Russian president is depicted with a huge iPad in his hands.

The Kremlin and the government have been touchy about attempts to hijack the images of Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

A Kremlin official, speaking on condition of anonymity, called the stunt “some sort of stupidity.”

The movie Captain America: The First Avenger tells the story of a skinny kid who is selected for a top secret process which transforms him into a hero with the body of a Greek god who is sent on a mission to fight against the Nazis.

上周二在莫斯科讓克里姆林宮跳腳的,是一張將俄羅斯總統德米崔‧麥維德夫變裝成「美國隊長」的神秘海報。「美國隊長」是位身材瘦小卻躍身成為超級英雄的漫畫人物。

俄羅斯總統穿戴黑色皮夾克與皮手套,呈現在一幅類似上個月初才在美國上映的電影《美國隊長:復仇者聯盟》的惡搞模仿海報。

「俄羅斯隊長:首位統治者」的文字,則橫跨這張在莫斯科出現的海報上。

不同於漫畫超級英雄在電影海報上手持的盾形徽章,俄羅斯總統則是雙手拿著巨大的iPad。

此類試圖冒用麥德維夫與俄羅斯總理弗拉吉米爾‧普廷照片的行徑,已踩到克里姆林宮與俄羅斯政府的敏感神經。

一位不願透露姓名的克里姆林宮官員則說此花招為「某種形式的愚蠢」。

電影《美國隊長:復仇者聯盟》述說被選定進行最高情報任務的瘦弱小子,變成有希臘神明般體格的反納粹戰士。
