Does whatever a spiderman does.Who is that mysterious black person in a business suit who looks absolutely nothing like Barack Obama, your new president? It’s COMIC-BOOK Barack Obama, that’s who! Jesus fucking christ, could Marvel Comics maybe hire somebody who can maybe draw something vaguely resembling the president-elect, rather than “random negro dude in a suit who also seems to have neck tumors”?

  1. Doing the “terrorist fist bump” no less.

    I wonder if we are going to see scenes of World Leaders holding the pose of a fist bump with Obama while thousands of cameras flash away.

  2. 1) Why does Spiderman have his left hand depicted, as this is not necessary for a terrorist fist bump?

    2) And what kind of disease results in deformed fingers?

    Unless of course that’s Larry Craig dressed up as a second Spiderman doing a reacharound.

  3. He actually looks like Mark Trail in blackface, except with a menacing expression on his face (Mark never menaces, even when he is beating up bad guys who are trying to kidnap his dog).

  4. The shape of Spiderman’s head is a little scary, too. Does he not have any skin on his skull? (His neck is also really long–like those women in those tribes who stretch out their necks).

  5. [re=213032]Tommy Says Soooo[/re]: The left hand is demonstrating the unendurable agony of being required to stand so close to a person of color, let alone forcing one’s self to play out the mockery that you are “down” with him. Basically, black people seem to have debilitating Kryptonite-like effects on members of the super-powered community.

  6. As a sop to the younger set on Inauguration Day Spiderman will be riding with the Obama family in the Hope-ty up Pennsylvania Avenue.

    How ’bout if The Knob Gobbler is the good guy portayed by Larry Craig
    who defeats his arch enemy The Iridescent Naugahyde Python by luring him
    into his super secret underground airport bathroom cave and swallowing him
    hole….er, whole.

  8. [re=213058]bitchincamaro[/re]: “At one point, Spider-Man says he mistook Vice President-elect Joe Biden for the Vulture (a vintage Spider-Man villain).”

    Spidey makes a funny!

  9. “the story has Spidey preventing the Chameleon from ruining Obama’s inauguration. Here the archvillian is escorted away by a security detail.”

    The Chameleon is a PUMA?

    Our new president was not only a party animal but a crack head, pot head, drunk, and there are rumors that he is bi…well the bi part has never been confirmed!?

  11. Part of the Spidey song goes “He’s got radioactive blood,” open hearing which the Secret Service tries to gang-tackle the webslinger. And all people should be drawn like Tony “Candyman” Todd, which recently appeared as an African warlord on that 24: Redemption movie.

  12. I have trouble believing Obama got elected in the Marvel Universe. The government there is even more facist than the one in ours.

    Also, Barack’s insistence that he’d meet Doctor Doom without preconditions would totally sink his chances.

  13. [re=213033]Troof[/re]: It’s not a three-piece suit – the comic is about villains trying to foil the swearing-in. So it must be an overcoat.

  14. [re=213069]MrAgro[/re]:
    Bah, they should have used The Vulture reference to take a shot at McCain. And then, they could have cut to McCain blabbering on about his ‘Nam stories to The Punisher. And then, an annoyed Punisher could have made a happy ending by using his bazooka to end the conversation.

  15. EVERYONE in the marvel universe has roid-rage muscles, even a fat ass like the Kingpin. Not sure how that could possibly happen but, hey, it’s a comic.

    [re=213070]you cannot be serious[/re]: Shoulda gone with that fat lady…[re=213057]Schadenfried[/re]: I thought the same thing, ha. Barry probably doesn’t fear “The Health Inspector” though.

  16. So the sixpack Obama was photographed with in Hawaii was just drawn on?

    Reminds me of those 1980’s GI Joe cartoons where every charachter – including the President – was drawn as an overblown steroid case.

  17. [re=213108]Sassette[/re]: Strange how Jim Rhodes from Iron Man looks more realistically “black” than this Barry…what are you sayin’, Marvel!?

  18. [re=213057]Schadenfried[/re]: Barry differs from Tom on the “should someone be locked up if she doesn’t get out of the way of your pee” issue.

  19. Geez, Secret Service. I know we have plenty of cracka-ass racists in this country, but isn’t bullet-proof glass and buff guys with earpieces enough?

  20. Barack has pretty shockingly Arian features in that cell… I don’t think the marvel comic animator’s hand would let him draw a black president.

  21. [re=213121]GuyOnTheWing[/re]: That’s what I was thinking. This looks like a poorly drawn white person with an extreme tan. For that matter, it could be John Boehner, although the tan would have to be more orange.

  22. At the end of the issue, Ultimate Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) approaches George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton in a Washington bar to propose forming….the X Presidents.

  23. So Spider-Man can save Obama in a comic before the actual inauguration, but he couldn’t prevent 9/11 in a comic AFTER the attacks? What good are you, anyway, web-head?

  24. [re=213122]Sussemilch[/re]: Totally Skrull. You’re absolutely right. Which is why the PUMAs and Freepers are going so apeshit: they’re the only ones who recognize that Barry’s a Skrull shapeshifter, and is therefore an illegal alien.

    No need to worry until Marvel Barry puts Frank Castle in charge of Homeland Security.
