Mr. T is the pitchman for Hanes Double-Tough Socks, and he told Howard he was asked to be the spokesman for the product because people believe in him. Further, he also has his own comic book, "Mr. T." He said that unlike other comic books, his deals with real-life situations, like telling kids to stay off drugs and in school.
In the stories, Mr. T hands out a few beat downs, but he assured Howard he would never kill anyone. Howard wanted to know if some of the storylines could include Mr. T rescuing the children from the Neverland Ranch or settling the score in Iraq. Mr. T said if he did end up going to Iraq in his comic, he wouldn't kill the terrorists…he would merely break their backs so they'd suffer for the rest of their lives.
