As someone who is very proud of my own comic-book collecting past, I find it very amusing that incoming President Barack Obama was apparently a big comic-book collector in his day. He was a big fan of Spider-Man apparently.

Well, Marvel Comics has decided to put Obama's mug on the cover of a coming issue of The Amazing Spider-Man. Man, for Obama this has got to be bigger than winning the White House. This is a geek's dream come true.

I wonder if we could see the White House incorporated in the comics in the future. Incidentally, there was an actual Saturday-morning TV show called Super President where the commander-in-chief would serve as President by day and as a superhero by night. Who knows. Maybe Obama is up for being the USA's first superhero President.

Heck, he'll have to find superhuman powers to dig the USA out of all the problems it faces these days.
