Marvel x Brooklyn Nets – BrooklyKnight
Written by Danny P Ocean on November 5, 2012
They are really going full speed ahead with the promotion of the Brooklyn Nets. Marvel Comics and The Brooklyn Nets introduce The BrooklyKnight.
According to both Marvel Entertainment and the Brooklyn Nets, the new mascot is the “protector of Brooklyn’s hometown team, defender of New York’s largest and most courageous borough, and ruler of Barclays Center.” The superhero made his debut at the Nets’ first game in their new arena and featured in BrooklyKnight #1, a 32-page comic book — written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Mike Deodato — that was handed to all of the game’s attendees. Fans present at the November 11 home tilt against the Orlando Magic — sans Dwight “Superman” Howard — can also look forward to a limited edition BrooklyKnight trading card courtesy of Marvel Custom Solutions and the Brooklyn Nets.
Let’s hope the product matches the hype.
