Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Superhero Named The Governator. No, Really…

Ever wonder what Arnold Schwarzenegger would do when he finally left the governor’s office in California?  Maybe more politics?  Go back to movies?

Well what about being a superhero?

Yeah, that’s right.  Apparently, Schwarzenegger became so enamored with the name  given to him during his time as Governor that he will transform into “The Governator” into an animated TV show and comic book. What’s even more surprising is the project is being co-developed by Marvel veteran Stan Lee.

Entertainment Weekly gives the full concept:

Along with the Arnold Cave, the Governator will have a fleet of super vehicles at his disposal, a closet full of “Super Suits” that allow him to fly and perform other super stunts, and a team of colorful sidekicks, such as Zeke Muckerberg, the precocious 13-year-old computer whiz who acts as the Governator’s cybersecurity expert. Naturally, there will also be recurring supervillains — including an evil organization called Gangsters Imposters Racketeers Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons (or G.I.R.L.I.E. Men, for short). For Schwarzenegger, the cartoon is obviously the next best thing to being President.

In an interview with the magazine, Lee says that The Governator will be a superhero to remember:

“The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger…We’re using all the personal elements of Arnold’s life. 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.”

Get your money out, because one way or another, that first issue is going to be a collectible.
