On Saturday night, at its home opener, the Brooklyn Nets introduced its new mascot, the Brooklyn Knight.
The Knight was designed by Marvel Entertainment.
Check out the Knight’s debut…
“Marvel has published BrooklyKnight #1 to coincide with the mascot’s debut. The special one-shot is written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Mike Deodato.
‘As a Brooklynite and a hardcore hoops fan, for me to get the opportunity to help create a superhero for my home borough’s new team was a dream come true,’ said Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso.
‘Working with the Nets staff, we have created a team superhero that is unlike anything the NBA has ever seen; a timeless character who can stand shoulder to shoulder with icons like Spider-Man, Captain America, Wolverine, and Thor. Let’s go, Nets!’
BrooklyKnight made his debut ahead of the game against Toronto Raptors at the Barclays Center.”
