Comic books, football and logo design have always been three of my most favorite things growing up. So after seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier in theaters last year, I got this idea of merging Cap with the logo of my favorite NFL team, the New England Patriots.
I was so satisfied with the final result that I decided to attempt to redesign each of the remaining 31 NFL team logos as a comic book superhero — or, in some cases, a supervillain.
As it turned out, some of these logos made for extremely obvious combinations. Like the Falcon for the Atlanta Falcons and Black Panther for the Carolina Panthers.
Other logos actually made perfect sense as a hero/team amalgam for obvious reasons. Iron Man for the Pittsburgh Steelers (metal) and Aquaman for the Miami Dolphins (water).
Also, having the same color schemes made sense to combine certain heroes with certain teams — take for instance, the Flash's red and yellow with the Kansas City Chiefs and Deathstroke's orange and blue used for the Denver Broncos.
While other more specific elements of a logo became the reasoning for a team being "heroized" — or in this case, "villainized" — as in, the St. Louis Rams' horns for Loki's helmet and the red streak in the Bills' logo becoming Venom's tongue.
