The Guardian Project

(image from Justin’s blog)

Seems like a good mix. I guess that is what made The NHL get together with SLG Entertainment’s, Stan Lee to create The Guardian Project

The project to unite comic books and sports will be creating 30 unique characters, one for each NHL team, to be unveiled at the 2011 All Star Weekend. Each “Guardian” not only has the sickest of character design, The Guardian creators evoke intimate details from each Guardian’s city to incorporate their own team’s unique character and design.

During the month of January, fans across the country can vote here for which Guardian to be unveiled next. So far, there have been 8 Guardians revealed, the latest being The Devil. All currently unveiled Guardians can be seen here.
