Arnold Schwarzenegger Kept His Word And Is Back In New Cartoon The Governator

Okay so it may be the day before April Fools day, but I assure you that as far as we know this isn't a joke. It seems that comic book legend Stan Lee and action star Arnold Schwarzenegger have teamed up to create a new comic series to be accompanied by a new cartoon known as The Governator, showcasing Arnold's double life as the Governor of California and a part time superhero. Now you can see why we're seriously considering this a joke.

This will be a comic book series and a soon to be animated TV show when the first few comics start rolling out. Yes it's not an April Fools joke, Arnold is indeed making a TV show out of the cliche nickname he was given when he became Gorvernor of California.  Talk about self promotion. Well on the other hand here is what Lee said to EW:

 "The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Lee says of the semi-fictional character. “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.” 

 So what happens when you put Arnold Schwarzenegger and Stan Lee together...

Apparently you get The Governator. (Entertainment Weekly's Cover):

Here is what the first issue of the comic book looks:
And here's is the plot summary:

Fear him now, understand him later! Bursting out of the pages of President Evil comes a machine sent back in time to terminate Gray Davis and become Governor of Kaleefornia. (Well, not really.) Because no puny specials about the President of the United States fighting zombies could be enough to contain the glorious, high-octane (but emissions-compliant) powerhouse that is the GovernatorZombie hordes? Pah! When the President can deal with rolling blackouts, tree-hugging environmentalists, annual wildfires, Hollywood-based lobbyists AND zombie hordes, THEN maybe he'll start approaching the musclebound magnificence that is the Governator! "That Governator is out there. It can't be bargained with, it can't be reasoned with, and it will not stop, ever...until his term is over." 

I think that this comic book series will not be the best, but this is what you get when two people meet with an idea, and big check books make. I just hope that it has a lot of action and won't let us down. Also Arnold Schwarzenegger will be the voice of The Governator. We will see The Governator on our screens at home in 2012.
