Their ”Celebrity” is so two-dimensional: Look close and spot ‘N Sync-ers Chris Kirkpatrick, 29, and Justin Timberlake, 20, sketched into a crowd scene in the October issue of Marvel’s ”Wolverine” comic. Surpisingly, they’re not even identified. The cameo’s courtesy of cartoonist Dan Fraga, 28, a Kirkpatrick buddy (they met when Fraga did graphics for the crooner’s clothing line, FuMan Skeeto). Luckily, Wolverine has fans among the ‘N crowd. ”He has the coolest look to him — and the coolest weapon,” Timberlake says of the clawlike blades. The boy-band duo is set to pop up in a follow-up issue — and may even score dialogue. But Kirkpatrick has already set his sights on another comic rebel, ”Spider-Man.” ”Tobey Maguire, whatever,” he says. ”He can play Peter Parker. I don’t want to wear tights and stuff, but I’d make a better Spider-Man.”
