In 2011, Malema was sent into South Africa's political wilderness after he was fired from his job as African National Congress Youth Leader.

But the South African police killings of 34 striking miners have propelled Malema back into the political fray, stoking striking miners' anger and further antagonizing his former boss, South African President Jacob Zuma.

Cartoon caricatures show Malema depicted as an opportunist blowing his own horn; a superhero named "Opportunist Man"; and a Nazi-looking figure announcing "Mine Kumback."
