Gatorade's Peyton Manning comic book is one of the most brilliant things we've ever seen

Peyton Manning as a superhero is beyond brilliant.


Gatorade has teamed up with DC Comics to turn some of the NFL's biggest stars into comic book superheroes. Among those superheros is The Sheriff, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

The game is played at Sports Authority Field at Mile High against the Washington Redskins. The 'Skins score first, but Denver comes back quickly to take the lead.

I don't want to give away the entire storyline, but the comic features flashbacks to Peyton's childhood, high school days, college career, and yes, even his time in Indy.

What would a Peyton Manning comic book be without an OMAHA reference? OMAHA!

In the end, Manning's Broncos win the game and wide receiver Andre Caldwell has a career day, hauling in multiple touchdown passes.

The complete comic can be viewed on Gatorade's website. It's definitely worth your time. Go read it. Now.
