Some say Arnold Schwarzenegger has always been cartoonish. From his early days as an outrageous body builder to his movie roles as a cyborg terminator—and even some would argue—as governor of California.

Called the Governator soon after he took office, Schwarzenegger embraced the nickname. Following suit, Arnold Schwarzenegger is going to be a comic book hero called, you guessed it, The Governator.  

“When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool.”


Schwarzenegger is 63 years old, but apparently still in fantastic shape. He says The Governator combines politics and movies; perfect for a Hollywood action figure/politician.

The TV show will be animated and the comic book is being developed by comic book creator Stan Lee, of Spider-Man fame.

“The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger,”

Lee says.

Maria Shriver (Arnold’s wife) will be in the cast of comic book characters as well as his kids. Schwarzenegger’s super-advanced crime-fighting headquarters will be located in Brentwood under his fictional unassuming house.
