Governor Cuomo today announced a major state production commitment between Netflix and Marvel, poised to generate millions in revenue for New York.

During a little interaction with the press, Cuomo started daydreaming about himself as a superhero known as “Boy from Queens,” a hero willing to “fight the evil empire” using his “superior intellect.”

And no, we’re not making this up…

Via Politicker:

Speaking to reporters after the announcement, Mr. Cuomo–who said that he already had a cape at the ready–eagerly repeated his pitch to the gathered crowd.

“I think that work, right? Boy from Queens. Think about it. Goes to Albany, fights the evil empire on behalf of the people of the state to bring justice back. In the end, the sun shines again,” he said.

Asked by Politicker to identify his superpower, he didn’t hesitate.

“Oh, superior intellect!” he said with a laugh, pointing to his head.

It must have been Cuomo’s “superior intellect” that caused  Remington Arms and their thousands of job opportunities to flee the state.

The “evil empire” must refer to conservatives who Cuomo has said have “no place in the state of New York.”
