“The Governator” Could Fail Because of Sperminator Arnold’s Seminal Sloppiness

Before Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 10 year-old son by their housekeeper, who posted pictures of

my sexy self

and their kid on MySpace, became front page news,the  former California governor and notorious womanizer had a bunch of media projects in the works, including Terminator sequels and a touching drama wherein in the the leading man (Arnold) kidnaps his divorced boss’ kid (creepy). Those will probably not be affected by the scandal.

But there there’s the comic book and cartoon series  The Governator, which has Arnold leading a secret double life. The AV Club describes it as thus:

The series imagines an alternate reality (or is it?) that picks up as Schwarzenegger leaves office, builds a secret underground bunker stocked with vehicles and “Super Suits” that allow him to fly, and becomes a sort of Iron Man-like crimefighter …fighting arch-nemeses, the G.I.R.L.I.E. Men.

Series co-creator, comic book legend Stan Lee told EW at the time:

We’re using all the personal elements of Arnold’s life. We’re using his wife [Maria Shriver]. We’re using his kids. We’re using the fact that he used to be governor. Only after he leaves the governor’s office, Arnold decides to become a crime fighter and builds a secret high-tech crime-fighting center under his house in Brentwood.

Um, oooops. This one might just go the way of Siegfried and Roy’s cartoon about their tigers.
