Obama meets Spider-Man
Our new president is not just a tasty cookie, he’s the star of a new Amazing Spider-Man comic:
Barack Obama has let it be known he was a collector of the Spider-Man comic as a kid –his senate web site featured a pic of Obama posing in front of a Spidey statue — so the folks at Marvel Comics paid him the ultimate tribute and made him the star of a story in which Peter Parker spots not one but two Obamas at the inauguration.
“The future president’s gonna need Spider-Man,” Parker reasons before donning the Spidey spandex to get to apprehend the Obama impostor.
The story is a bonus in Marvel Comic’s Amazing Spider-Man #583, available in comic book shops nationwide on Jan. 14 for $3.99. Like everything else that features Obama, it’s expected to sell out.
