Despite the Iranian nuclear agreement, Israel can rest easy - it has Spiderman and the Incredible Hulk on its side.

A bus bearing the image of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was accosted by a group of comic book superheroes - as well as Minnie Mouse - in New York City.

These enemies of evil made their displeasure known, angrily denouncing the likeness of the Iranian leader and making it known that when it comes to the Middle East, they have Israel's back.

The bus was an initiative by New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, an Orthodox Jew from Brooklyn and a vocal critic of the Obama administration as well as other Democrats who are supporting the nuclear agreement.

Hikind's "Ayatollah Thanks America" tour bus is a tongue-in-cheek ad campaign whose aim is "to highlight the dangers of the Iran deal and to urge members of Congress in favor of the deal to take a second look and reconsider their support."

The bus made stops near the offices of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Rep. Jerrold Nadler, two prominent Democrats who have declared their intention to support the agreement in Congress.
