Schwarzenegger is back: See the new 'Governator' comic book



the-governator.jpgWhen Arnold Schwarzenegger left the office of Governor of California, I assumed he'd continued his previously declared career path: To crush his enemies, see them driven before him, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

My second choice: a sequel to 1988's Twins with Danny DeVito. ("Thank you for the cookies. I look forward to tossing them.")

So imagine the confusion today to hear that Arnold has instead decide to pair with his majesty, Spider-Man creator Stan Lee to develop an animated TV show and comic book based on his alter-ego: "The Governator."

"The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world," Arnold, now 63 years old, tells Entertainment Weekly. "And [this cartoon] brings everything together. It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies…"

The book/TV show won't be out until next year, but EW has some details.

"The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he'll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger," Lee tells EW. "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."
