Comics are more popular than ever, and while some celebrities star in comic book movies, the celebrities on this list, loosely ranked by fame and popularity, have all appeared in actual comic books themselves. Several famous actors, musicians, athletes, and even politicians and historical figures have appeared in comic books. Some of these celebrities appeared in comics about their own lives while others appeared in classic series like The Amazing Spider-Man and Superman.
Who is the most famous person who appeared in a comic book? Angelina Jolie tops our list. The Mr. and Mrs. Smith actress appeared in a 2011 edition of Female Force. However, not all famous people appear in comics by choice. Since 2010, Lady Gaga has appeared in several editions of Fame though she wasn't all that happy about it. She filed a cease-and-desist order on Bluewater Productions claiming that the comics are akin to boot-legging her image. Justin Bieber also asked the publisher to stop using his likeness in their comic books.
Even President Barack Obama appeared in a 2009 edition of The Amazing Spider-Man entitled "Spidey Meets the President!" Other world leaders and historical figures such as Prince William and Abraham Lincoln have had their likeness included in comic books.Which celebrity's comic book appearance is your favorite?
