The former Green Goblin has become a major power broker in the Marvel Universe, and his next move takes place in Thunderbolts #128, solicited as follows:
From the ashes of Secret Invasion, an all-new era for the Thunderbolts erupts, with repercussions felt right across the Marvel Universe! Yelena Belova (a.k.a. Black Widow II) leads the irredeemable Ant-Man and the sinister Ghost in a daring mission to take down the U.S. President aboard Air Force One! But even as Norman Osborn tightens his grip on power, he must battle toe-to-toe against his deadliest foe: the Green Goblin! Wait, what...? Be there as writer Andy Diggle (The Losers) and artist Roberto De La Torre (INVINCIBLE IRON MAN) flip everyone’s favorite team of villains upside down!
This week some preview pages were posted online, and as you can see, they are chock-full of Obama. The way it reads seems to confirm that Bush put Norman Osborn in charge of the Fifty State Initiative (despite a scene in Secret Invasion #8 that made it look like Obama), and the new President is at least temporarily stuck with Osborn running the world's superhuman community. Osborn is obviously no happier with his new boss, and is already plotting to keep his grip on power. I'm guessing that Norman engineers an attack by some bogus Green Goblin that he can "save" the President from, thus cementing his hero image, distancing himself from the Goblin, and keeping his job. Whatever happens, its worth pointing out that President Obama makes his first substantial Marvel Universe appearance this week in a book that the general public has never even heard of, so it may be worth reserving a copy if you want to read it. All I know is that I hope Obama got Spidey's cellphone number,because he may need it!
