Can Marijuanaman Save The World?

This is definitely in the “you can’t make this shit up” category, reported by Caleb Goellner for Comics Alliance:

Yep. Marijuanaman. Reggae star Ziggy Marley, son of Bob Marley, is part of a joint effort with co-writer Joe Casey and artist Jim Mahfood to produce a pot-powered superhero coming to stores on – you guessed it – April 20 of 2011. What’s more, Ziggy’s coming to San Diego Comic-Con International for a special poster smoking signing.

Image’s smokin’ official synopsis chronicles the upcoming adventure:

Ziggy’s new superhero, Marijuanaman, is from a planet that is in desperate need of THC. Marijuanaman seeks to save Earth’s marijuana fields from destruction by the drug company PharmeXon, and thus saving his home planet from destruction.

To be blunt, Image’s hullabaloo over a certain other celebrity comic left a less-than stellar taste in my mouth at last year’s Comic-Con. I just wasn’t really high on how things turned out. Judging from the involvement of Casey and Mahfood, however, Marley’s “Marijuanaman,” seems like it could produce a much more potent (and enjoyable) reading experience…

    Unlike Superman, Marijuanaman is not weakened by Kryptonite, that is, not until he rolls it up and smokes it.

    Weed humor is usually pretty lame. Sorry. Otherwise I have no problem with the stuff. I get tired of people acting like they are getting away with something when they talk about smoking weed.

    Or world is OK, word does not need saving – people do (then again… do they? They might as well die out so other species can flourish?).

    But yeah.. mariauna and hemp can solve a lot of people problems (in MANY different levels) but for the WORLD there is no more need for it then it grows naturally.
    But of-course this plant will not be freely available around the world in near future as many different businesses would suffer (but not as much as they afraid if they reorganize, i think).
    If one would want to throw away 100 – 150 million dollars to get medical approval for this plant – that CANT be patented (first thing they do with all medicine), so OTHERS can start to make money… then we might see the progress… up to then its just a silly dream.
