College Football Helmets Inspired By Marvel Comics

                                    
On the football field, the Duke Blue Devils could use the otherworldly senses of Marvel's Daredevil.

           
It's hard to improve on the classic Pittsburgh Panthers helmet. But we did. Pittsburgh Black Panthers, forever. 

In the spirit of Marvel Comics' What If, what if Homer wrote Hercules into The Iliad, and had the strongman single-handedly defeat the Trojan warriors? Well, clearly, what would happen is modern-day college football fans would be rooting for -- or against -- the USC Hercules instead of the USC Trojans. Clearly.(And, yes, Hercules is a Marvel character. The figure of Greek mythology was first appropriated for Marvel's purposes via the Thor-fronted title, Journey into Mystery.)
The Iowa State Cyclones aim play up a storm, so why not just adopt a powerful X-Men character -- and become the Iowa State Storm?
The Marvel hero Moon Knight debuted in the pages of Werewolf by Night -- and right here on the helmet of the Army Black Knights -- sorry, the Army Moon Knights.  
What are the young, super-powered members of Marvel's Runaways collective if not rebels? And what are the Ole Miss Rebels if not a collective of young people with superpowers -- or, you know, fundamentally sound tackling abilities?  
                          
The Sun Belt Conference's Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns are reimagined here as the Louisiana Gambits, a collective nod to the Ragin' Cajuns' red-and-black-trim helmets and the red-on-black eyes of X-Men associate Gambit

Here, the crossed sabers of the Virginia Cavaliers become the air flaps from Pepper Potts' Rescue armor. The endgame, er, end result is pretty sharp-looking.

Anheuser-Busch Debuts A ‘Bud Lightning’ Beer To Celebrate Tampa Bay’s Stanley Cup Win

  The Tampa Bay Lightning are your 2020-2021 Stanley Cup Champions. They are the first team in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup after getting swept in the playoffs the year before. If you think back to last season, my TB Lightning tied the record for the best regular-season in NHL history only to get blindsided by the Columbus Blue Jackets and bounced from the Playoffs in 4 straight games.  The Lightning were quite literally one of the best teams in NHL (regular season) history. They hadn’t lost back-to-back games that ENTIRE SEASON. Then they got swept by a team that wasn’t even expected to win a single game in that series. WITIN RADIO · Interview: Grant Fuhr This year was different for so many reasons. The Lightning started the season pretty shaky and seemed mentally defeated after last season’s sweep but they got it together after the 2-game international road trip to Sweden where they went 2-0 against Buffalo and it was almost like the Lightning came back recharged and learned

Chadwick Boseman Gets A Marvel Comics Eulogy From Ta-Nehisi Coats

            Ta-Nehisi Coates paid tribute to Chadwick Boseman in Wednesday's Marvel Comics . Coates began his eulogy with a quote from T'Challa from 2015's Secret Wars #7. "Death is just a different kind of journey…to the land that I am king of," the quote reads. WITIN RADIO · Interview: Heather Antos: Assistant Editor: Marvel Entertainment "In the Black Panther mythos, T'Challa often retreats to his City of the Dead, where all the previous kings and queens of Wakanda have been buried. There, T'Challa finds wisdom and counsel from his ancestors who have gone before," Coates continued, before explaining how he and Boseman's paths crossed when they were students at Howard University in Washington, DC.                                   "I got to watch him through the years — advancing out of student theater, on to TV and film, and then finally cast as T'Challa. He was perfect. He had T'Challa's royal spirit, the sense that he
