Obama to appear in Spider-Man

Even comic books can’t stay away from Barack Obama.

Since our soon-to-be-president was such a fan of Spider-Man as a kid, Marvel Comics will feature him in a bonus story this month.

Apparently Peter Parker will be taking photos at the inauguration. When he notices there are two identical Obamas, he springs into action as his alter ego and administers, we can only assume, a beating pf presidential proportions on one of them.

I’m betting it’s not the real one.

Obama then thanks Spidey with, of course, a fist-bump.

Other presidents have appeared in Marvel Comics, but mostly in walk-on roles, including Richard Nixon.
