In an upcoming issue of ESPN the magazine, three of today’s most popular NBA players will be transformed into Marvel superheroes. The big three, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James and Kevin Durant will each be given a special Marvel makeover and be transformed into Iron Man, Captain America and Thor.
I find this offensive. We have a “rapist,” a “traitor” and Mr. Durant… hardly the heroic types if you ask me. Maybe if they were Marvel villains… hmm.
BTW ESPN is owned by The Walt Disney Company, which also now owns Marvel Entertainment. That’s why. Thanks for asking.
