Since last night's Vice Presidential debate, the fly that landed on Pence's head has been given celebrity status.

Once the Marvel community caught wind of it, everyone wanted to know Paul Rudd's whereabouts.

Keep scrolling for the hilarious tweets...

 

Last night, Democratic challenger, Kamala Harris, and Trump’s Vice-president, Mike Pence, went head-to-head in the year's first and only Vice Presidential debate.

Following the explosive debut presidential debate nearly 2 weeks ago, the nominees finally had their say.

Although one uninvited guest just happened to steal the show...

Jokes about the fly are popping up all over social media, and it looks like some Marvel fans have figured out who was behind it.

The debate took place with a Plexiglass shield between the candidates...

A health and safety precaution requested by the Biden-Harris campaign, the Associated Press reported.

However, concerns regarding the distance between the podiums are still rife.

Many are worried about Pence's exposure to the virus, considering the President was infected just a few days ago.

And it has just been announced that the next Presidential Debate will be a virtual one.

Although Trump has assured everyone that he will not be taking part if that's the case...

Anyway, Susan Page, the Washington bureau chief of USA Today, moderated the debate...

Which was dominated heavily by the coronavirus crisis, the very thing that hospitalized the President just days ago.

But, firstly...

Let's meet our candidates, and get an insight into what was expected from them.

Standing for the Republicans, we have the current Vice President, Mike Pence.

Pence, a socially conservative Christian from the midwest, has been rehearsing for the debate with Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida, playing the role of the Democratic candidate, the Axios website reported.

Pence had a swift plan of attack...

And some of his preparation involved developing ways to strike his female opponent "without opening himself up to criticism that he is acting in a disrespectful or sexist way," according to NBC News.

And, for the Democrats, we have Kamala Harris.

Harris, a former criminal prosecutor and progressive Californian, is widely considered to be a formidable debater.

Harris won rave reviews for her performance in an early Democratic debate when she criticized Biden for his record on race...

So people were expecting a real show.

Axios reported that Harris planned to go in on the attack...

And it was anticipated that she would rebuke both Trump and Pence over their response to coronavirus, healthcare, and beyond.

The California senator had apparently “planned a handful of anti-Trump zingers"...

But, given the President’s ill-health, she toned it down.

Much like the debut Presidential Debate on September 30th, opinions were seriously divided in the run-up to the debate.

On one hand, there was an overwhelming wave of support for Pence, but on the other hand, many were keen to witness Harris' direct and "sweat-inducing" approach to Pence.

But aside from Harris and Pence, there was another unexpected star of the debate...

A fly who landed on Pence's head. And Twitter went absolutely wild for it...

And once Marvel fans got a whiff of it, they accused Ant-Man of being in on it the whole time...

Since the debate ended, hundreds of tweets have surfaced comparing the fly to Antony, (the flying ant used by Scott Lang/Ant-Man) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

People were questioning Rudd's whereabouts, wondering if he had been the one to shrink down and crash the debate...

What a world we live in. Here are just a few of the hilarious tweets about it...
