Obama Waves Spider-Man Through TSA Line

Readers of “The Amazing Spider-Man” comic strip that runs in newspapers certainly can’t fault President Barack Obama for being a hands-off chief executive.

It turns out that Obama has greased the skids for Spider-Man to board a flight in costume from San Francisco to “Costa Verde” — a somewhere-around-the-equator Latin America country where the wall crawler’s frenemy Tarantula is fighting corrupt officials who have kidnapped Tarantula’s sister to bring the revolutionary hero to heel. Follow that? Neither did we. It’s all in the last few days of strips, though, if you’d like to make sense of it.



We just know Captain America is going to cut in line now for the next flight to Egypt.
