NFL Stars as Super Heroes

NFL Stars are more like super heroes than we think. We look up to them, we watch them weekly, and in our eyes they’re larger than life. For that reason it was a perfect match to mash together, as we’ve done here. NFL Memes graphic designer Brandon Hubschman along with the help of Weis Karzai have combined 16 NFL stars with compatible super heroes from our favorite cartoons and movies.

  1. S’more Ideas: Matt Ryan as Iceman, Darren Sproles as Ant Man, Terrell Suggs as Venom, Luke Kuechly as Colossus, Tom Brady as Mister Fantastic, Le’veon Bell as The Human Torch

  2. These photoshop jobs look like they took 15 minutes IN TOTAL to complete. Their heads are all WAY too big for their bodies. If you’re going to do something like this, at least put in some effort. I’m hoping a kid did this, or someone new to photoshop that’s never done it before and is just learning, because these are terrible.

    • No way? I don’t like Cam at alllll but the Superman thing is his TD celebration. Also Gambit is “The worlds greatest thief” and who knows how many titles he has stolen….

        • I think Eli Manning being Gambit more understandable then Cam Newton or Tom Brady. Firstly, both Remy Etienne Lebeau (Gambit), & Eli Manning were born in New Orleans, Louisiana. Secondly, Gambit is a known to be a pickpocket. When Eli Manning is in the post season, the NY Giants are often the underdogs and they were projected to have a have a post season record of 4-7 in 11 games. However, Eli Manning has a playoff record of 8-3, thus won games that many people said they would lose.

        • yeah ok Brady didn’t do anything then huh? Should have just got josh Mccown instead of Tom Brady. Im pretty sure Mccown could have drove the pats down the field against one of the best defenses of all time right?lol what a dumbass

    • JJ is Cap’t, Gronk made out with a married woman infant of her husband and he knew they were married. Captain America would not do that AT ALL!

    • Gronk is good there Brady should be captain america Gambit is fast and agile something not really fitting of brady where captain america is more strategic and accurate when throwing. Gronk is good at Thor. More fitting to how he is.

        • lol Very true. Too bad there wasn’t a superhero that cheats all the time in order to get justice…then, billicheck could be a hero.

          • So very original. Keep that daydream alive!

            Can’t list a single instance of cheating other than the stuff you either make up or clearly don’t understand, so just keep name calling.

          • Okay, if you want a villain, who is a hero to his own people (Pats fans), then Belichick could be the anti villain, “Dr. Doom.” The Doctor is portrayed as a “deceptive, violent, and megalomaniac, who does his best to live up to his reputation. Even people who would admire the way he rules his country Latveria (Patriots) don’t like him because he will not stop betraying them, breaking their laws, or trying to steal their powers. The people of his country (Pats Nation) really do like him, though, because Doom (Belicheck) is better than the leaders they had before and better than the guys trying to usurp him.”

          • Why a villain? He’s actually more like Batman. Strategic, smart, 3 steps ahead of everyone else, & gets criticized for his methods.

  3. Shady McCoy as Lantern, gay! Peyton Manning as Iron Man? Looked like Pepper Potts against Indy. Brady should be Xavier before Magneto put a bullet in his back.

  4. So Marshawn Lynch goes into “BEAST MODE”… and you don’t use him as Beast. The whole Tom Brady as Gambit makes sense cause they are both thieves.

    • Interesting, but Captain America was a weakling changed into a super hero by chemicals, so “Captain America” probably should be someone who used PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs) to make it in the NFL. Any suggestions? The late, great Lyle Alado would be an obvious, though creepy’ pick. How about Ravens Pro Bowl DT Haloti Ngata, who was suspended last December for using Adderall?

  5. Based on the way he burned opposing defenses in the NFC playoffs, I’d cast Russell WIlson as the Human Torch.

    Julian Edelman of the Pats would make the perfect Green Arrow, seeing how every time he makes it into the end zone it’s like a shot straight to the other team’s heart.

    And last but not least, in recognition of his mentoring of young players on the Colts, I’d like to nominate Chuck Pagano as Professor X.

  6. If Peyton Manning is Iron Man then Tom Brady is Iron Patriot I also think May Ryan should be Ice Man & how’s not Marshawn Lynch not Beast his nickname is Beast Mode

  7. Maybe luck be the human torch cause he’s burning teams with his arm makes better sense to me or a speedster reciever like Julio Jones maybe

  8. I loved this until you ruined my favorite X-Men character by putting Brady-girl’s face on him! Oh my poor Gambit! Why couldn’t Tom have been Wonder Woman?

    I do agree with John Paul St Hilaire about Matthews as Thor (although I can also see that as being too obvious).
    Other than the Brady-girl issue, I just love seeing Gronk, Clay, PMan & JJ being “honored”. They are my favorites! Can’t forget OB-Wan Jr, either. After all, I AM a Giants girl!

  9. You forgot the top triple threat in the NFL… ANTONIO BROWN as The BLACK PANTHER; LEVEON BELL as The HUMAN TORCH and BEN ROETHLISBERGER as The GHOST RIDER…..

  10. Iron man is an ordinary person who becomes a super hero by wearing a metal suit. Along that line, Steve Smith should be Iron Man. He is an ordinary man (5-9, pounds, 135 pounds, age 35), who becomes a a super hero when he puts on his football uniform.

  11. So…I thought Marshawn Lynch should’ve been Beast or Wolverine? Clay shouldve been Thor. I don’t know why but Rodgers should’ve been Hulk. I liked Gambit, Flash and of course Superman was on point 😀
