Schwarzenegger Becomes Bodybuilding Batman in Stan Lee's Governator

image

Arnold Schwarzenegger's nickname of "Governator" is no longer just a joke, with Stan Lee turning it into a comic book and television series.

By day, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a bodybuilder turned actor turned California governor with an exhausting-to-type last name. By night, he's the same things, except in Stan Lee's upcoming comic book and animated series Governator where he's also a high-tech crime fighter.

Schwarzenegger says Governator will combine the world of politics with the Terminator, bodybuilding, and movies. The main character will use personal aspects of Schwarzenegger's real life, such as his wife Maria Shriver, but add a crime-fighting center underneath his Brentwood, California home.

The Schwarzenegger version of the Batcave will house multiple super vehicles, a closet of "super suits" that give him special powers (such as flight), and a team of crime-fighting experts like 13-year-old computer whiz and cybersecurity expert Zeke Muckerberg. I don't even want to go into the scandal that could arise from the public finding out Arnold Schwarzenegger keeps a 13-year-old in his basement.

Schwarzenegger says: "I love the idea of a control center below my house with a path so that boats and submarines can go right into the ocean." Who wouldn't? Governator will also feature silly supervillains such as the G.I.R.L.I.E. Men, or the Gangsters Impostors Racketeers Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons... Men.

Governator is yet another feather in Stan Lee's cap of properties that seem like a joke at first, but are real, such as when he turned every NHL team into a superhero. The basic idea sounds a little odd, but that doesn't mean an at least slightly entertaining property won't come out of it. Arnold Schwarzenegger mixed with Batman, fighting the G.I.R.L.I.E. Men? That could be kind of funny, or an enthralling train wreck, and everyone wins either way.

Author's Note: This could easily be an early April Fool's Joke.

This is all well and good....but there is one thing I don't understand: why?

I'm not believing anything even faintly ridiculous for another 24 hours.

I honestly wouldn't put it past them though.

Easy, ... Drum roll... BECAUSE HE CAN. (Inb4 "Didn't that kind of thinking lead to the atmoic bomb?"

Actually, this seems like an incredibly silly idea that I'd love to at least watch or read once.

Also, here's to hoping this isn't an April 1st joke.

Money. They gave Pamella Anderson a show right?

Hmm, my eyes have started bleeding. It appears that there are other things that blind you, besides staring at the sun.

Methinks I should remedy that by gouging my optic nerve out with a spork.

Damn you April first, making me doubt everything.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK. I was pretty excited until you reminded me it's April Fools Day. SHIT!

Got to be an April Fools' prank.

great. so now nobody can say 'Governator' without paying Marvel.

i also really hope that he doesnt keep 13 year olds in his basement

also, Zeke Muckerberg sounds alot like Mark Zuckerberg

Oh, Ahnold, what have you done? No, really, what have you done? I really don't get it.

I'd dismiss this as April Fool's, but the source article is dated for the 30th...

I'm horribly confused now.

Well darn, as hilarious as that sounds, the imminent arrival of liars day naturally makes me question the veracity of this news. Technically it isn't April 1st yet here in the states, but considering it's tomorrow I can't take any chances.

Tom Goldman:

I'm sure a nerd such as Mark Zuckerberg will be thrilled at a semi-reference in a Stan Lee comic book.

If indeed it is true, given April fools and all.

But if it is, it looks funny enough. Somewhat done, but I'm sure there's more than enough political humour to keep it coasting along for a while. Schwarzenegger's (Yes, I copy pasted it. He should have stuck with Arnold Strong) greatest talent has always been his self-deprecation, so I imagine he'll enjoy this too.

The source article is dated to the 30th, so don't give up hope young one!

Not believing the internet on anything for the next 3 day's..but Fuck Arnold Schwarzenegger...He is a Big Hypocrite.

If it's an April Fool's Day prank it's a very well done one. If it's not I hope Jesse Ventura is introduced at a later date :)

When he puts on his Superhero costume, does he go Commando?

Hah! Love it, even if it is an April Fools prank! Schwarzenegger, (you're right that is exhausting to type,) is pretty much a real life comic book character anyway.

o.O

GET TO ZE OFFICE!

:D

I wonder how this will go with Californian's, typically political ones? :o

Veloxe:

One can dream!

No. Fucking. Way.

This can't be real. This has GOT to be an April Fools prank. Or, at least, I hope to God it is. This is too stupid to be true.

This needs to happen... Now

Though since this was posted past 12:00AM UK time, i ain't believing anything without at least 5 pieces of supporting evidence

Now if you'll excuse me i'm just going to check who invented April Fools Day so i can envision myself punching the whore in the face.

If this Schwarzenegger is like the one in Commando Japan will have a field day :D

Oh god, I cant stop laughing at that comment

This is relevant

I wish this was real. I'd love to see how this pans out.

If it's an April Fools I will be SO disappointed.

Is Actually based on real events.

There is only so much one can take... after the first paragraph, I more than reached my fill.

Ok, stupid, but I kinda like it...yeah, let' have it.

I really want this to be true, it would be fucking awesome if it was real.

This also creates a possibility that it might actually be real *crosses fingers*

Based on how well Ahnold mixed with Batman the last time it was tried (coughcoughMr.Freezecoughcough)i wouldn't be surprised if this was an April Fool's joke

JWRosser:

better question: why not?

Probably a joke. But can it get any better than this?.. no.

If this is real, he better have this in his super suit closet.
