CNN’s Alina Cho reported that that a likeness of Barack Obama will be appearing as a character in an upcoming Spider man comic book.

Lawrence Sabato Jr., a professor of government at the University of Virginia, believes that this creates high expectations for Obama. “When you’re being compared to super heroes, obviously the publics expectations of you will soar,” said Sabato.
