Obama Teams Up With Spiderman

asm583_obamavariant.thumbnail.jpgPresident-elect Barack Obama has graced the cover of tons of magazines and nearly every newspaper ever (saving the industry in the process).

Now he’s teaming up with another superhero to save the world. In Spidey Meets the President — a new insert from Marvel Comics that will be included in the Amazing Spider-Man #583 — the prez and the web slinger team up on Inauguration Day to fight an unnamed villain.

“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,” Marvel’s editor-in-chief Joe Quesada said in a statement.

So to review, Obama wants to install a basketball court in the White House, plays fantasy football while prepping for a debate, and reads Spider-man. The world just might be safe.
