Later this week, the late Steve Jobs and Magneto will have something in common -- both will have appeared in comic book form. We're sure you can think of other similarities, unfortunately the full potential of Apple's iconic co-founder caricatured in a comic will never be reached, not without Stan Lee and Jon Stewart tag teaming the project (they're not), though Bluewater Production did promise to capture the many sides of his "complex personality."
"Admire him or dislike him, Jobs’ vision and business acumen revolutionized the world," said writer CW Cooke "Between he and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, you would be hard pressed to find someone with greater influence over how we communicate, interact and do business over the last 30 years."
Yep, Bill Gates is getting a comic book too, joining the ranks of Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Spider-Man. As for Steve Jobs, the comic book was written prior to his death (penciled by Chris Schmidt with cover art by DC artist Joe Phillips), so it won't include his untimely passing.
Maximum PC Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung shared his thoughts about the super tech duo appearing in comic book form.
"It’s just sad. No Repulsor, Ultimate Nullifier, or Adamantium. But maybe if they introduce each of them at a time, they can eventually do an 'Avengers' movie with all them together in unstable molecule uniforms," Gordon mused.
We're obviously biased on this one, but wholeheartedly agree.
The 32-page Steve Jobs comic book biography will go on sale tomorrow for $3.99. Bill Gates' bio will follow in March.
