The 2010 Michigan Wolverines as Superheroes

Submitted by Ghost of Bo on December 22nd, 2010 at 12:18 PM

I was listening to a bowl rundown earlier on local talk radio, and the hosts came to a consensus that it would require a "heroic effort" for Michigan to overcome Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl. That got me thinking...

If our beloved Wolverines were rendered as comic book superheroes, who would they be? I whipped up a few examples...

Denard Robinson is The Flash. This one is obvious. They don't call him "Flash Dilithium" for nothing.


Mike Martin is The Hulk (aka Bruce Banner). Yet another obvious choice. Mike Martin is a scary, scary man. You won't like him when he's angry.


Perry Dorrestein is The Punisher (aka Frank Castle). It's not just a tattoo; it's a lifestyle.


Rich Rodriguez is Batman (aka Bruce Wayne). A tortured, obsessive, brilliant warrior who continues doing all the right things even when public opinion turns against him.


Tate Forcier is Robin (aka Dick Grayson). Though he's been forced to resign himself to a supporting role, he is always there in a pinch, armed with batarangs.

And finally...

Cam Gordon is Commissioner Jim Gordon.

Okay, I am sold. I love this.

I came here expecting text, and got awesome artwork instead.


Fav - Martin/hulk

Most creative - Cam-issioner Gordon

Missing - shouldn't someone be Wolverine? Or are they all wolverine?

No offense taken, good sir. The trouble with the interwebs is things can get lost in translation.

And you're right... I spent about 3 times longer on the Martin one than the others. Now that finals are over, the daytime hours are spent dicking around in Photoshop on my laptop and pining for the Gator Bowl.

In response to the above posts regarding Wolverine... I think I've cracked it. There is only one man with the musculature, testosterone, and feral drive to wear the dreaded adamantium claws...

Mike Barwis is Wolverine.

May I add one? I am not good this graphic arts so you will have to use your imagination on the youtube video...

Obi Ezeh....

Is he Captain Insano or the Waterboy being Captain Insano?
