200712271256 UN and Spidey join forces
This news couldn’t come on a more inappropriate day, as the world seems more senseless than ever, but perhaps a comic book teaming Spidey and the UN can bring some smiles:

In a move reminiscent of storylines developed during the World War II, the U.N. is joining forces with Marvel Comics, creators of Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk, to create a comic book showing the international body working with superheroes to solve bloody conflicts and rid the world of disease.

The comic, initially to be distributed free to 1 million U.S. schoolchildren, will be set in a war-torn fictional country and feature superheroes such as Spider-Man working with U.N. agencies such as Unicef and the “blue hats”, the U.N. peacekeepers.

    The Hulk (unless he was in his Pantheon days) definitely wouldn’t be of any help. I suppose Spider-Man’s spider-sense could be of use.

  2. I suspect this will split a lot of people.
    Hmmm….. perhaps they got tired of waiting on DC’s Batman vs. Osama Bin Laden?

  3. Torsten Adair says:

    They published a manga series last year, which wasn’t too bad.
    I would like to see something similar to Tales From The Heart. Pekar’s Macedonia is what the UN should offer adults.
    Batman gets a pass. He helped enact that gun law in Virginia, and he publicized the dangers of forgotten landmines.
