To mark the start of the NBA season, Marvel and ESPN collaborated on an ESPN the Magazine issue featuring members of the NBA as different characters in the Marvel Universe. While I disagreed with some of their decisions, it made me think – which athletes suit which superheroes?
Of course, Tony Stark is a playboy with an addiction to alcohol, but he is also known as the hero Iron Man, a suit he had designed to save his life after a splinter was housed near his heart. So which athlete played the pain to earn the title Iron Man? This was a draw. Both Brett Favre and Cal Ripken Jr have redefined the term "Iron Man" in their respective sports. Cal Ripken Jr is known as Iron Man of Baseball with 2,632 consecutive games.
Brett Favre is currently in 290 consecutive launches, making him an Iron Man.
Wolverine is easily the figurehead for Marvel Comics (sorry, Spider-Man, Logan's Cooler.) There are probably many Athletes who would like to be Wolverine, but there is only one that really came to my mind, and part of it was his love for the character.
Brian Daw Kins, currently playing with the Denver Broncos, is a small-size athlete, but one I do not want to hit in a dark alley.
 Many different characters have used the name Flash in DC Comics, and in this topic there are some athletes who can claim the title as well.
Dwyane Wade has called himself Flash, especially in conjunction with Shaquille O & Neill. However, his speed has made the name suitable.
In the NFL, Chris Johnson easily earns the name Flash because his speed and speed has caused fear to defenders, knowing that he is always a game
Similar to The Flash, several athletes over the years have tried to claim the Superman cloak, especially Shaquille O & Neill, though he chooses the Steel Superman persona and Michael Vick With athletic ability. But being Superman is more than just power, it's what you represent, and that's why I think Superman is easily Tim Tebow.
Sure, he's just a beginner, but he's earned his name at the University of Florida, and his size, athletic ability and high moral character make him the ideal choice to claim the coat of Superman.
This was hard for me, as Captain America does not really have superpowers. Sure, an experiment brought him to the brink of human perfection, but theoretically there's nothing he can do that none of us could do. What makes Captain America so special is its leadership, and that's why I was with Captain Tom Brady for my athlete Captain America.
Tom Brady is not the most physical quarterback in the NFL. He may be talented, but there is no better leader in the league, no quarterback, which gives more confidence to all players on the pitch. All this and he plays for a team called Patriots and his uniform is red, white and blue. C # 39; mon.
Sure, most athletes smell now and then his mouth, but it is the good-natured humor of Ochocinco, who made him a choice for Deadpool.
Uncomplicated playboy by day, gloomy sergeant at night. Who else but Peyton Manning? I know you are surprised. If Peyton is known off the field for comic commercials, he can show his funny side.
But as soon as Peyton puts these baths on the field, Peyton is everything. I'm not saying that Peyton will face Dark Knight against his opponents, but you never see him take on a game, and that's all Batman.
Ok, this was a bit long, but it's Roger Goodell. Most of all, because he was really good at penalizing athletes who broke the rules.
Ok, he's not Frank Castle, but I do not think Frank Castle is even Frank Castle.
The Incredible Hulk
Bruce Banner is a high-stress situation that keeps himself from turning into a green monster capable of anything to destroy in his path. Brock Lesnar is not so calm, but he is an order to destroy everything on his way.
You would not like Bruce Banner when he gets angry, I do not know that I would like Brock Lesnar if he was happy, sad, angry or asleep. Dude is scary.
Diana, the Amazonian princess. We had a triple pack for this one. Serena and Venus Williams have been dominating women's tennis for years, not only because of their incredible abilities, but also because, frankly, they are bigger and stronger than anyone else.
title = "Venus and Serena Williams – Wonder Woman" src = "http://www.digitalbusstop.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/ 10 / Venus and Serena Williams Wonder Woman.jpg "alt =" Venus and Serena Williams – Wonder Woman ” width=”400″ height=”500″/>
They are Amazons, I do not mean this negatively (no Hatemail please), but they have a distinct physical Advantage over their opponents.
Also in the mix for the title Wonder Woman is called Gina Carano, this MMA fighter is beautiful and deadly, a combination, the Wonder Woman I know that I would not cross them.
The Norse god of thunder and lightning. Thor can make a movie bring out Chris Hemsworth next year, but when it comes to the sporting world, only one player can win the title Jared A
I mean, the guy plays for the Vikings, so that's one leg and his strength, speed and epic goose and facial hair put him all in the class of Thor, God of Thunder.
Have you made another choice for a combination of athlete and superhero? I do not agree with one, some or all of my selection. Let's hear it.
