Schwarzenegger Gets a Comic Book

Sarah Palin beat him to it: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s next act will be as a comic-book superhero called “The Governator,” according to EW. "When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool,” Schwarzenegger says, adding, “The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world. And [this cartoon] brings everything together. It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies…” That may not sound so cool, but the comic is being co-developed by Spider-man creator Stan Lee. “We’re using all the personal elements of Arnold’s life,” Lee says. “We’re using his wife [Maria Shriver]. We’re using his kids. We’re using the fact that he used to be governor. Only after he leaves the governor’s office, Arnold decides to become a crime fighter and builds a secret high-tech crime-fighting center under his house in Brentwood.”
