Well it looks like President Elect Barack Obama who is a big Spider-Man fan will be in this issue as part a five-page back-up story, Spider-Man stops the Chameleon from spoiling the President Elect’s swearing in at his inauguration. Also at one point, Spider-Man says he mistook Vice President-elect Joe Biden for the Vulture.There will be an Obama variant cover (That I want) by artist Phil Jimenez.

Joe Quesada Marvel Editor-in-Chief told USA Today  “We thought, ‘Fantastic! We have a comic-book geek in the White House.’”This is not the first time that President Elect Obama has been in the pages of comics.He  was endorsed by Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon and had his own biography comic.”We do our best to be completely non-partisan and treat presidents with respect,” Quesada told USA Today. “This is not so much a pro-Obama statement but a tip of the hat to having a Spider-Man fan in the White House.”
