Marvel Team-Up: Spiderman and Obama!

Well Stephen Colbert has done it.
And if you're old enough, you'll remember the whole SNL cast did it once.
So why not have President-elect Barack Obama meet Spiderman?

Swinging into action, Obama featured in `Amazing Spider-Man' comic book
KALAMAZOO -- As the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama nears, Marvel Comics' announcement of the release of a special Obama issue of ``Amazing Spider-Man'' has intensified excitement over the event for a certain segment of his supporters: comic-book fans.
``Amazing Spider-Man # 583,'' to be released nationwide today, will include interior pages and a variant cover featuring the soon-to-be-president, according to the announcement about the issue on Marvel Comics' Web site.
``It's my understanding that Obama is a comic-book fan, so it's not surprising to me that the comic industry is willing to embrace him,'' said Josh Hall, assistant manager and longtime employee at Fanfare Sports & Entertainment, 4415 S. Westnedge Ave.
