DC vs. Marvel on the Gridiron: Part 1

The college and NFL seasons have officially kicked off, and I couldn’t be happier.  However, I decided to take my two favorite things, and mesh them together in a two-part series.  Today, I will show you what it could look like if DC Comics characters lined up in football on offense against the characters from the Marvel Universe.  Why am I doing this?  Because I want to, and I can.

Before we jump into the rosters, lets take a look at the back office.

The Owner: Wayne Enterprises

Head Coach: Lex Luthor

The one true DC executive who is a great strategist and can think several steps ahead.


Offensive Coordinator: Brainiac

Defensive Coordinator: The Joker

Equipment: The Guardians on Oa

For the most powerful equipment in the universe, who else is there?


Referee: Rorshach

“…and I’ll whisper, ‘No’.” He is pure justice.
