NFL SuperPro: Marvel and ESPN Homage Classic Comic Covers for Football Players

Move over, Phil Grayfield! Marvel Comics and ESPN have teamed up to produce a series of homage variant covers for top football players. Marvel posted the covers on their website, though they originally debuted on television back in April for the NFL draft. But hey, maybe you've had too many concussions and you can't remember that far back.

Check out the covers below, alongside their classic counterparts.

The unmistakable mighty Marvel style has come to the NFL!

ESPN and Marvel Comics have teamed up to craft special comic book covers commemorating a quintet of compelling competitors on the good ol' gridiron!

As seen during the live broadcast of the NFL Draft this April, these covers reference some of the most famous mags in Marvel history, from Spider-Man's debut appearance in AMAZING FANTASY (1962) #15 to Captain America's first self-titled issue, CAPTAIN AMERICA (1968) #100! A few of the most beloved artists at the House of Ideas took that classic inspiration and transformed Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa, Dwayne Haskins, Brian Burns, and DK Metcalf into their awesomely animated Super Hero analogs.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
