Arianna Huffington has achieved some pretty impressive things in her career. But do her accomplishments make her a superhero? One comic book publisher apparently thinks so.

Bluewater Comics, whose “Female Force” series has already featured high-powered women like Hillary Clinton, Martha Stewart, and Sarah Palin, is giving media queen Huffington the superhero treatment in the series' latest installment.

According to the press release, “Female Force: Arianna Huffington” will be penned by comic book writer Martin Pierro—who spent “weeks getting to know Huffington in every article, interview and speech he could get his hands on”—and drawn by artist Nick Justus. The book will cover thrilling events such as Huffington’s “time studying in England, her marriage to a congressman, her run as governor of California and how her website was sold to AOL for $315 million.”

The Huffington issue of “Female Force” will be out this October.
