Obama in Spiderman-Comic


Dass Obama hochoffiziell ein Geek ist, Conan- und Spidey-Comics sammelt und einen Mac benutzt, hatte ich letztes Jahr hier gebloggt. Deshalb schmeisst Marvel zur Amtseinführung von Mr.Obama die Cashcow an tut Marvel dem Spidey-Fan einen Riesengefallen und lässt ihn in Spiderman #583 auftreten.

When we heard that President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics’ Marvel Universe... Historic moments such as this one can be reflected in our comics because the Marvel Universe is set in the real world. A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man.


From USA Today's report on the issue's story: In the story by Zeb Wells, Todd Nauck and Frank D'Armata, Spider-Man stops the Chameleon from spoiling Obama's swearing-in. At one point, Spider-Man says he mistook Vice President-elect Joe Biden for the Vulture (a vintage Spider-Man villain).

Additionally, Quesada commented to the paper that, as he sees it, the appearance isn't an endoresement of any kind, rather, "a tip of the hat to having a Spider-Man fan in the White House."
