While most can rattle off the names of at least a dozen major comic book characters (likely including their own favorite superheroes), many aren’t aware of all of the stars that have made appearances in some memorable comic book story lines. Here are 9 celebrities that have made comic book cameos, including the most recent famous face to join the list, Anderson Cooper.
1. Anderson Cooper
It was recently announced that the CNN anchor will be appearing (as himself) in an upcoming issue of the Black Widow series. According to what series writer Nathan Edmondson told Marvel, Cooper will reportedly issue an investigative news report on his show about the character and her actions. The report will act as a “catalyst for a major event in Black Widow’s journey.” As Edmondson explained, “It’s Anderson doing what he does best: looking for the truth and reporting on events. We imagine that in Black Widow’s world, as would be the case with many other Avengers, things she does can’t be ignored by the media.”
