The NHL and Stan Lee are collaborating to make a series of superheroes called "The Guardians." Each team will be represented, and one will be released each day of January. What do you guys think of them? Each new one will be posted in this topic.

The Penguin, as I said in the NHL Season thread, looks like Cyclops after the X-men traded him to the Pens. Possibly in exchange for some future draft picks, Iceburgh, and cake.

The King is kinda cool, and as much as I don't like their current crown logo, I like how they worked it into his helmet. The Duck would have been better though. :(

I'd like to see what Stan Lee can do with some of the more abstract team names that are out there like the Hurricanes, Wild, and Red Wings.

From what we can see on the poster, a few teams like the Wild, Predators, Bruins and Coyotes, possibly the Panthers too, have very animalistic superheroes. The Red Wings, Blue Jackets, Blackhawks, Rangers and Thrashers all have a more mechanical approach.

All I know about the Duck is that he has a spear and a surfboard. He appears at the 8 second mark in the above video, and you can see he has a duck bill on his face, which I'm personally pleased to see.

Please tell me Jean-Claude Van Damme is in the Iceburgh suit they used for the trade. I remember that scene from Sudden Death oh so well. :)

looks like some creepy anime character

As someone who frequently watches anime, I have to disagree. I've never seen anything remotely resembling this.

He reminds me more of Mortal Kombat's Scorpion.

If that's the case, he better have a spear as a weapon. :P

I agree. That looks like Shredder in a tornado.

And yes, the Predator does sound like a pedophile. Unless they market him like the Punisher, he might not look so heroic.

The Penguin, anyone?

Haha, I saw more 60's Cyclops in the Penguin than Frozone personally, but now that you bring it up, I can see him too. Maybe if the Penguin had an alternate suit that was powder blue, then he'd pull off the Frozone look :D
