St. Louis native Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter and Square, can now add comic book superhero to his resume.
The St Louis Business Journal reports Dorsey is the latest in a series of celebrities and technology entrepreneurs to be featured in a comic book biography published by Bluewater Productions. The company is behind comic books that retell the story of The Beatles, Lady Gaga and President Barack Obama’s dog Bo Obama.
The comic book on sale today features a billionaire bachelor who gets a Tweet at a San Francisco cheese expo that ultimately leads to a battle with the forces of evil to save the world from a mad scientist. St. Louis and the Arch are featured in the story line.
Comic Flea Market is selling the book for $3.99 or online on iTunes, Nook, Amazon and other digital outlets for $1.99.

A St. Louis Community College student is waiting anxiously for her accused attacker to be charged.
19-year-old Blythe Grupe was in class in the Communications North building last Thursday when she says a man she didn't know followed her into the women's bathroom on the Meramec campus in Kirkwood and began choking her.
She tells Fox 2 news she screamed--an instructor rushed to her rescue, restraining the man until police arrived. Chief Banta says they arrested the 18-year-old male student, but had to let him go until warrants are issued...
"Typically, when we arrest somebody, even for felonies, they can't be held for more than 24-hours."
Grupe says she wasn't seriously hurt, but she says she won't rest easy until her attacker is prosecuted.
The suspect has been banned from campus and the case turned over to the St. Louis County prosecutor.
