Get ready, ESPN is about to fill your sports viewing with Super Tim. Along with Marvel Comics, the four-letter word has created Broncos Quarterback Tim Tebow into a Super Hero.
"As Tim Tebow’s story continued to emerge this season we thought it would be fun to get Marvel’s take on what a Tebow super hero and his fourth-quarter heroics would look like," Senior Coordinating Producer Tim McHugh said. "Whenever we can, SportsCenter likes to put creative spins on the stories sports fans are talking about and this is another example of that."
Marvel artists Bong Dazo, Scott Koblish and Todd Nauck created iterations of Tebow incorporating real life (the Tebow snarl) and superhero charcteristics (a fancy utility belt) of "Super Tim."
"Like the Marvel heroes who pull off last minute victories, Tim Tebow has fans around the world on the edge of their seats and believing that — in our own lives — when time is running out and all looks lost, we can dig deep inside and use our various strengths to triumph over insurmountable odds," says Bill Rosemann of Marvel Custom Solutions.
Now, is it me, or does the Tebow towards the end look a lot more like Philip Rivers?
