A Super-Hero for Each NFL Team, Part One


With the Avengers craze in full swing, I, as a fan of football and comic books, will attempt to assign a hero, or super-villain, to be an ambassador for each NFL team.  After all, it is the off-season.

Let’s start with the Avengers.

1. Dallas Cowboys – Captain America

America’s Team gets the Cap.  He wears a lone star on his shield and there’s no way I’m giving him to the New England Patriots.

2. Pittsburgh Steelers – Iron Man

He’ll have to change the orange on his armor to black but it seems like a natural fit.

3. Minnesota Vikings – Thor

Norse god for the Scandinavian warriors.  Too easy.

4. Green Bay Packers – The Incredible Hulk

I refuse to surrender Hulk to the Jets but, as another green team, they get a consolation prize.

5. New York Jets – She-Hulk

She has beautiful feet.

OK, I know we still have the Black Widow and Hawkeye but let’s move on.

6. New York Giants – Beast

The G-Men get a big blue mascot.

7. Atlanta Falcons – The Falcon

8. Carolina Panthers – Black Panther

9. New Orleans Saints – Gambit

He’s a true Cajun hero.

10. Kansas City Chiefs – The Apache Chief

It’s about time DC is represented.  Eh-neeek-chock!

11. Cleveland Browns – The Juggernaut

He’s brown and his momentum cannot be stopped until he reaches the AFC Championship.

12. San Diego Chargers – Black Vulcan

This DC hero was likely created by a Super-Chargers fan.

13. Philadelphia Eagles – Hawkman

He has wings and wears green leggings.

14. Oakland Raiders – Venom

He’s as dark as the Black Hole.  Ghost Rider is also an option here.

I’m taking suggestions for the other 18 teams.

As far as our Miami Dolphins, I don’t want to settle for Aqua-Man or Sub-Mariner.
