In case you haven’t heard, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore fame is getting his own comic book. We don’t have many details, but here’s what we know: The comic will hit shelves in early August, and the cover will look like this. That’s enough information to inspire some bold predictions from the PPC team.
• Origin story: A young man named Michael Sorrentino is resting in a tanning bed when an eruption at Jersey’s Salem Nuclear Power Plant causes the roof of the salon to cave in, trapping Sorrentino inside. Instead of burning Sorrentino to a crisp after the recommended 20-minute tan time elapses, the UVA rays combine with the nuclear emissions and Sorrentino’s hair gel to turn him into The Situation, a wise-cracking Italian with trademark abs, an uncanny ability to land a one-night stand and an innate talent for lying in almost every situation. Because the hair gel only trickles down to the top half of his body, The Situation has a ripped torso, but comical chicken legs.
