    Default The Big Question.... If Romney Wins, Does He Get On The Cover Of Amazing Spider-Man?

    Okay, Obama declared himself as a fan of Spider-Man. And Paul Ryan has used "comic book" in a speech as a perjorative.

    But still, after the last election Obama on the cover of Amazing Spider-Man, and in a short back up strip, saw the comic sell over half a million through a variety of printings. If Mitt Romney wins the Presidential Election, could he shortly be joining Spider-Man on a variant cover of the already-destined-to-be-a-classic Amazing Spider-Man #700?

    I asked Dan Slott for his thoughts. He told me;
    If Romney wins, I'm moving to the UK. :-P
    Ah, c'mon Dan, we already have a conservative government over here, I know you'd only really move so you can watch Doctor Who hours before your fellow Americans...

    He's been appearing in Fantastic Four for years in a green cape tunic with a metal mask.

    2 words, "HELL" and "NO". Let's be honest, Obama appeared on the cover of ASM for 2 reasons.

    1. Because most (NOT ALL) of the people currently working for Marvel (editors and creators) are liberal Democrats.

    2. Obama being elected as president was a major historical event that Marvel used to make a boatload of money off of.

    I think every president should get a Spider-Man cover. I love the Nixon cover where Spidey has an afro. Hell, I want a Biden cover with him yelling "MALARKEY!"

    Good call. This really does explain why we won't see a Romney cover.

    If they did it, though, I'd still buy it, although I would much prefer the idea Karmakaze is floating about a Joe Biden cover. Joe calling out "Malarkey!" following a Romney win would definitely speak to me.
