Herman Cain: Superhero

Ted Cruz may have his own coloring book but Herman Cain is now a comic superhero. Yes, someone has actually gone to the trouble of creating a comic book with Cain as the hero of the story. The press release doesn’t say, but I imagine that in its pages he’ll be bravely battling against the scourge of rationality.

Bluewater Productions newest biography comic book release this week tells the story of the business mogul, radio host, syndicated columnist, and Tea Party activist. Released on December 11th in time for his birthday. “Political Power: Herman Cain features an illustrated version of his life story.

Herman Cain stands as an example of American ingenuity and perseverance. The son of menial labor workers, he pulled himself up the ladder of success – from fast-food worker to pizza mogul, Presidential candidate and beyond, Cain’s story is one of seizing opportunities, but also of embracing mistakes and moving forward.

Written by comic book biographer, Jim Beard with art by Kurt Belcher….

Bluewater has featured other business executives life stories in the pages of comic books such as Mikhail Prokhorov, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Sergey Brin and Larry Page: The Creators of Google and Jack Dorsey.

“Some of the most of the interesting stories don’t come from Hollywood but from the business news world. People like Herman Cain, Howard Schultz, Mark Zuckerberg, created unique cultural touchstone that have more entering value than the latest single from a pop single. Their stories are America’s Myths,” said publisher, Darren G. Davis.

I wonder if I can get him to bet me $2500 that it will flop.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    His superpower is not having old white people be scared of him. He’s politic’s Will Smith.

    Strangely enough, when I read the first sentence of the quoted text it looked like Bilgewater Productions….

    Of course, there’s a big difference between Cain who was hired as the CEO of an existing company and founders of a new company like Brin, Schultz, Zukerberg, Gates, Page, and Jobs. The former is a hired gun, the latters are entrepreneurs.

    They’re a publishing company. Can’t anyone in that organization write coherent, grammatical English prose? I know that’s not an argument against it, but the writing, such as it is, is SO distracting.

    Oh, thank goodness! We’re spared the sight of him in tights and a cape:

    I wonder what “entering value” is. Enduring? Entertainment?

  • daved

    As written, it would appear that Brin and Page created Jack Dorsey. What, in the lab?

    Too bad that Mittunswillard Romney doesn’t have one going to. He could be “Captain MAGIC Underpants”.

    In that last paragraph I count seven grammar errors. Did I get them all?

    I think we should get to vote on who will become a superhero. I would vote for Jimmy McMillam, the rent is too damn high guy.

    “… also of embracing mistakes and moving forward.”

    Yeah, like when women started coming out of the woodwork claiming affairs with him he embraced the mistakes by blaming it on the liberal media haters.

    Or, just maybe, the women are the “mistakes” he made, and he embraced them.

    @5, it looks like he’s wearing a Muslim hat in that image. And to think, the Republians tried to vault super black Muslim inoto the White House.

    It continues to astonish me that people deny the value of the Oxford comma: `creators of Google and Jack Dorsey’.

    As for Herman Cain, as I understand it, he has a magic power that can make any pizza taste crappy.

    Maybe it’s not the writing that was bad, but Mr. Davis’s speech. Since it was a quote, it could just be that Mr. Davis actually said “latest single from a pop single” and the stenographer was very precise.

    What is super Herman going to use as his secret identity, Captain Ubeki-beki-stan-stan or ShackyDucky man?
