The superhero finally gets to meet his humble fan thanks to the magic of Marvel Comics.
The comic book setting is inauguration day 2009. And it is the president-elect who is the superhero and none other than the irrepressible Spider-Man who’s the fan.
“…This is your day, after all, and I know it wouldn’t look good to be seen palling around with me,” Spider-Man says as he tries to leave Obama to the limelight.
“Hey, not so fast,” says the soon-to-be commander-in-chief.
Then comes the confession: I’ve been a big fan of yours. The conversation ends with a fist bump between the two men.
Obama, in turn, might get the services of Spider-Man as he deals with multiple problems that have landed on his plate: the recession, the Iraq war and the Israel-Palestine conflict.
