Obama & Spider-Man

Savefarris first noted this awesome yesterday.

The president-elect is featured on an upcoming issue of Spiderman, which will be released January 14. While it’s not the first time a President has been featured in a Marvel comic, it’s the first time a president-elect has graced the cover. Marvel Comics is giving a tribute to the future commander-in-chief, an admitted Spidey fan.

The best part of this is the inevitable conservative bitching and moaning. There's a long tradition of superheroes palling around with presidents. There was even in the comic in the '60s about a presidential superhero. But one fist bump with Spidey and Obama and comics become a part of the vast liberal media conspiracy.

Maybe this means that decoder rings are involved.
