Marvel-NHL Crossover Creates Hockey Superheroes


Stan Lee, the creator of legendary comics like Spider-Man, Iron Man, and X-Men has partnered with the NHL to develop a cartoon superhero for each NHL team.  

SLG Entertainment LLC and the NHL will form Guardian Media Entertainment LLC and Lee will spearhead “The Guardian Project.”  Lee will develop a so-called Guardian for each NHL city, combining elements of the team’s history and surrounding area. 

Lee is still in the planning stages of his project, but we’d like to offer a few suggestions…

  • Greybeard – Detroit Red Wings.  An ancient warrior savvy in the tricks of combat, but no longer capable of executing at his once elite level.
  • Crybaby – Pittsburgh Penguins.  Fashioned around a certain 23-year-old who wears opponents into submission by wailing at the top of his lungs.
  • Money Bags – New York Rangers.  A clumsy and unintelligent oaf that hurls money bags at problems, but always misses his targets.
  • Disgustor – Washington Capitals.  Using Alex Ovechkin as a model, Disgustor will be the most vile, hideous-looking creature to every walk the earth.  Enemies flee in every direction rather than confront Disgustor.
  • Halfway – San Jose Sharks. A ferocious villain that beats his opponents to a pulp with his brute strength but can never quite finish the job.
