It’s official: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s nickname during his stretch as the Governor of California is about to take form as a new crime-fighting superhero.

The 63-year-old has announced that he’s teaming up with legendary comic book genius Stan Lee to bring the animated series, titled “The Governator” to life.

“When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘The Governator’, I thought the word was so cool,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “The word Governator combined two worlds – the world of politics and the movie world. And the cartoon brings everything together. It combines the governor, the ‘Terminator’, the bodybuilding world, the ‘True Lies’ world.”

Said Stan: “Only after he leaves the governor’s office, Arnold decides to become a crime fighter and builds a secret high-tech crime-fighting centre under his house in Brentwood.”

Um, ok! Apparently, there’s a whole teenager team that assists Schwarzenegger as well in his fight against – and this is serious – an evil organisation called Gangsters Imposters Racketeers Liars and Irredeemable Ex-cons, or G.I.R.L.I.E. Men, for short.

Seriously, if this info had leaked a day later, I would have instantly thought “April Fools!”. But hey – if it’s entertaining, kids won’t care. I do, however, believe that many will continue to take offense to the whole “Girlie Men” thing. Seems like they could have come up with a better, less controversial name for the villains.

“The Governator” is expected to hit sometime next year.
