No stranger to the world of fiction -- or superheroes, no matter how infamous -- Shaquille O'Neal is venturing into the world of comic books.
This week O'Neal debuted his two franchises, "Clean Ops" and "Hoopfighters" -- first with the above video and on Friday when the former NBA center visited Comic-Con in San Diego.
There he took part in "The Black Panel," discussing issues of diversity in the comic world. He also took questions from the crowd and, per Entertainment Weekly's Pop Watch:
Most Incisive Audience Question: From Clayton Thomas, who asked Shaq to add him to his Black Comedy tour and then did two minutes to prove he’s got the goods.
Least Incisive Audience Question: A fan asked for a pic with Shaq. Sweet but not a good idea with quip master Michael Davis on the mic.
O'Neal did take a few pictures there, though, with fellow panelists E. Van Lowe and Jamie Kennedy, plus ... well, you'll just have to wait and see.
