Obama and Spider-Man Team Up

Barack Obama is a Spidey fan. The President-Elect collected Spider-Man comics as a child. So Marvel Comics had decided to make a special issue featuring Obama and Spider-Man together.

“How great is that? The commander in chief to be is actually a nerd in chief,” Quesada said. “It was really, really cool to see that we had a geek in the White House. We’re all thrilled with that.”

The comic starts with Spider-Man’s alter-ego Peter Parker taking photographs at the inauguration, before spotting two identical Obamas.

Parker decides “the future president’s gonna need Spider-Man,” and springs into action, using basketball to determine the real Obama and punching out the impostor.

Obama thanks him with a fist-bump.
