What does the true NFL football fan, Star Wars geek and Marvel addict do to while away the time between Super Bowl and the start of training camp and the first batch of summer Marvel Cinematic Universe releases and the December bow of Star Wars VII? He merges all these universes together and creates team helmets for imagined NFL, Marvel and Star Wars teams.
A football league featuring the Avengers and Star Wars characters would be the ultimate football dream. I wouldn't hazard a guess as to whether a Star Wars or Marvel football league would be better than a normal human one. All I know is that all NFL/Marvel/Star Wars super fans will be in agony having to decide whether to watch the NFL Draft in its entirety or Avengers: Age of Ultron on opening day.
Designer John Raya spent his off season lovingly imagining the teams that would do battle in a Star Wars pigskin league.
The folks over at JK Creative did the same for the Marvel league teams.
The results are pretty much spot on and awesome.
