Does Whatever a President Can

This is the best inauguration ever for kids. First, the Obama girls are getting a puppy. Now Barack Obama will be featured in an upcoming issue of Spider-Man. If this doesn't make a generation excited about running for president somday, I don't know what will.

"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."

I love the fist-bump!

Other presidents have made appearances, but mostly just in walk-on roles. If you want your copy of comic/political history, pick up an issue on January 14. Nerdfest!
