Wow, BARACK really can do anything. Just when you thought walking on water was a cool OBAMA trick, he pulls out the big guns and grabs the cover of the upcoming AMAZING SPIDER MAN issue #583. Set to drop on January 14th as an Inauguration Day special issue, the comic’s storyline follows Peter Parker, who, while shooting photos of Obama at the inauguration ceremony discovers a body double lurking in the wings and, after jumping into Spidey gear, tests the twin pres elects with a game of basketball before doing away with the game-less imposter who turns out to be the villainous Chameleon. A fit bump from the real O apparently caps off the ordeal. Yeah, the story sucks ass bad, but it is the cover of Spider Man, and Obama is a self-professed comic book nerd. Said the Big O on the campaign trail: “I was always into the Spider Man/Batman model. The guys who have too many powers like Superman always made me think they weren’t really earning their superhero status. It’s a little too easy. Whereas Spider-Man and Batman, they have some inner turmoil. They get knocked around a little bit.” Too bad they couldn’t drag Todd McFarlane back in to ink the book. Now that would be nerdy…
