Gordon Brown, superhero?

The prime minister of England will be the star of a new comic book, the Daily Mail of London reported.

Brown fights aliens and sports not a leotard and cape but a business suit in Marvel Comics' "Captain Britain and MI:13," according to the Mail.

Brown took the reins from past prime minister Tony Blair less than a year ago, and his popularity has been flagging lately.

The comic's British writer Paul Cornell said he feels sorry for the prime minister.

"I'm quite a fan of Gordon Brown," Cornell told the Mail. "I'm pleased we've given him a PR boost on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world."
