Marvel x Brooklyn Nets | BrooklynKnight, NBA’s First Super Hero
There’s currently a lot of excitement around the Brooklyn Nets. They now call the Barclays Center home, a $1 Billion arena we got to experience this past weekend for the team’s season opener. Not only did the Nets win, but they did it less than a week after one of the most devastating storms hit the region. As we were exiting, everyone was handed a copy of BrooklynKnight #1, a 32-page comic book written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Mike Deodato. Who is the BrooklynKnight, you ask? Well, according to both Marvel Entertainment and the Brooklyn Nets, the new mascot and NBA’s first super hero is the “protector of Brooklyn’s hometown team, defender of New York’s largest and most courageous borough, and ruler of Barclays Center.” Though we were lucky enough to get a copy of #1, fans at the November 11 home game against the Orlando Magic can expect a limited edition BrooklynKnight trading card courtesy of Marvel Custom Solutions and the Brooklyn Nets.
