Schwarzenegger’s Cartoon Reinvention
Posted on Mar 30, 2011
Talk about building a brand: He’s played an action hero and a president, and now Arnold Schwarzenegger is starring in his own combination comic book and cartoon franchise, clearly the logical next step for California’s former governor. Really, Stan Lee? —KA
Called The Governator, it is a version of Schwarzenegger after he has left the Governor’s office and becomes a crime fighter, Lee told EW. The Governator will run operations out of a secret high-tech crime-fighting center (aka Arnold Cave) under his house in Brentwood and will have a fleet of super vehicles and a closet full of “Super Suits” at his disposal. He will be surrounded by a gallery of sidekicks, including a 13-year-old computer whiz, and supervillains, including G.I.R.L.I.E Men, named after another Arnold-ism.
