Greene stumps for his superheroic efforts. (WBTV)
Faster than an incumbent politician, stronger than the Hulk, able to leap both Michael Jordan and the ballot box in a single leap from logic. Alvin Greene may have lost his offbeat bid for the Senate, but no one, apparently, defeats his alter ego: the "Ultimate Warrior."
Greene's candidacy ended as quirkily as it began Tuesday night, with the Democratic challenger posing no threat to South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint -- yet in the alternate universe of comics, Greene remained unbowed.
Speaking to a handful of reporters on Election Night, Greene paused to pitch his comic book featuring a do-gooder superhero helping families in foreclosure, reports WBTV.com -- the vanquished surreally touting the superpowers of the ever-victorious "Ultimate Warrior."
Of his superheroic "alter ego," Greene tells reporters, citing a couple of retired athletes: "He can see into the future. He is faster than [Olympic medalist] Maurice Greene and he can outleap [Michael] Jordan."
If only, for Greene's sake, Ultimate Warrior could outpoll a sitting senator. With great power, it seems, comes great eccentricity.
