The autumn wind is a comic-book failure…

Once upon a time, somebody somewhere decided that it would be a good idea to publish a Marvel comic about a former football player who becomes a superhero: NFL SuperPro.

It was an idea on par with Dolphins kicker Garo Yepremian’s decision to attempt a pass in Super Bowl VII.

Anyway, NFL SuperPro launched in 1991 and, in an upset similar to the Jets’ stunning defeat of the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III, the series lasted a remarkable 12 issues, plus a special.

That adds up to 13, of course, so here are 13 COVERS for this fine Super Bowl Sunday.

(By the way, I’m a Dolphins fan, so don’t come @ me!)

  1. I had no idea there was an NFL-based superhero comic by Marvel. I think I’ll give that one a read right away.
