(Newser) – Those saddened by the departure of Alvin Greene from the national stage can take solace—he's still around as a comic book superhero. Greene spent much of his election night party after the loss to Jim DeMint talking up the Ultimate Warrior, his comic book alter ego who uses super-human physical abilities to help families facing foreclosure, reports the Huffington Post.

The warrior's mission statement, as noted by Comics Alliance: "I will stop house foreclosures. Big banks got their bailout. Their debt was forgiven and you paid for it. They each got million-dollar bonuses. Did they forgive your debt? Did you get a bonus? I will save your house and your job." It helps that he can "leap higher than Michael Jordan." The Washington Post can't resist this line: "With great power, it seems, comes great eccentricity." See the comic here or to read more, click here.
