I don’t often talk about sports on here, but like most people in the US, I enjoy a good football game. Not as much as the NBA, but I sure am glad that the NFL season has begun.
But I’m not here to talk about my Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. At least not without a comic book tie-in.
Graphic Designer Justin Kozisek recently rebranded each of the 32 NFL teams with a Marvel Comics mascot.
One of my favorites reintroduces the aforementioned Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots as the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Meet your New England Star Lords!
Instead of being one of two pirate-related teams, Oakland gets a new face on its *AHEM* S.H.I.E.L.D. But don’t worry, he still has the eyepatch! Sure to still never win more than half their games, the Agents of Oakland!
I hate to disparage the fine city of Cleveland. No really. I’ve been there. It’s nice. But the Browns may have the worst mascot in all of sports. And I don’t care if they have a guy on a dog suit. They are a color. That’s worse than District 5. Somehow Kozisek managed to make their mascot more interesting, but still completely vague. It’s the Cleveland … Things!
The whole set can be viewed on Kozisek’s website. He did a great job introducing some Marvel flair without losing the iconic nature of the current logos and uniforms.
