Schwarzenegger returns as comic book Governator

April 4, 2011 |  2:02 pm

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was mum for months about what would be next for him after elected office. Now it’s clear the actor-turned-politician has been plotting a grand return as a comic book crime-fighting hero.

“I'm pumped for my next role as the Governator,” Schwarzenegger told his nearly 2 million followers on Twitter on Monday, linking to the trailer for a new comic series.

The only remaining questions for Capitol politicos are what roles, if any, his reliable Sacramento sidekicks, ex-Lt. Gov Abel Maldonado and chief of staff Susan Kennedy, might have in the series.
