Spider-Man meets Barack Obama the new President Elect of the United States in issue #583 of The Amazing Spider-Man.
Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada says that “President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics” and “a Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of ‘Amazing Spider-Man.'” Sounds more like a lame marketing gimmick to me. And apparently it worked because we’re reporting on it. Damn lame marketing gimmicks and their effectiveness!
