(Newser) – Spider-Man is about to hook up with a high profile sidekick, reports AFP. Marvel Comics is publishing a fist-bumping Spider-Man special next week featuring Barack Obama. "When we heard that the president-elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew these historic figures had to meet," said a Marvel editor. In the special edition comic, Spidey battles a foe trying to stop Obama from taking the oath of office.
