Stan Lee creating 30 superheroes for each team in the NHL

Oct. 7, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Alright so this isn't exactly movie news, but I wouldn't be surprised if somehow it led into a feature film someday, and I thought you guys would enjoy it. Stan Lee is apparently content to leave The Avengers in the hands of the studio, and will show up for his obligatory cameo when he's asked.But in his free time, what's he up to?

His new project is, and I kid you not, to create superheroes for each of the 30 teams in the NHL for a publicity push known as The Guardian Project. Yup.

Stan Lee’s vision for his latest superhero franchise, The Guardian Project, which will encompass the creation of 30 Guardians (one to represent each NHL team) as a new series of superheroes, with a creative concept that organically and authentically incorporates various NHL elements but is not set in the world of hockey. “I’ve always believed that every great plan starts with a great story,” says Mr. Lee. “In the creation of GME and its unique and unprecedented relationship with the NHL, I truly believe we have the perfect combination from which to launch 30 new superheroes and excite young fans around the globe.”

Some have accused Stan Lee of selling out over the years, but I don't know whether to file this as that or just "crazy old man can do whatever the hell he wants." And as I said, if this takes off, don't be surprised if you see a movie or kids' show spawn out of thise. But what I'm most curious about his how the hell he's going to make superheroes out of some of these teams. Sure, the Predators, Panthers, Sharks, Lightning, etc probably won't have that hard of a time, but what about some of the others?

Toronto's Maple Man - With the power to shoot syrup out of his eyes. The bad guys will be sticky beyond belief!

Ottawa's Super Senator - With the power to move legislation to a standstill!

Anaheim's Danger Duck - Mess with this duck, and he'll annoy the shit out of you by quacking for hours!

New York's The Islander - Able to surround himself by water at any given moment!

I could go on, but I've already convinced myself that I'd watch this movie.

Extra Tidbit: One more: Edmonton's 'Orrible Oiler, with the ability to kill any sea life at will!

GO SENS GO!

Our city has always associated the Senators logo with gladiators or spartans. And our walking mascot is "Spartacat" a lion who will sometimes bring out gladiator gear.

Awesome!

That crazy old man's a legend and can do no wrong in my opinion. Is this any worse than when he turned the Backstreet Boys into superheroes for those Burger King kids' meal toys?

The Columbus Blue Jacket. Nobody knows he exists and he's the most unqualified to be team leader.

Montreal's Captain Canadien: His power would be to only speak french, and he was once a great super hero, but now, when fighting his enemies, he always loses!

Let me start by saying I love that pic of Stan Lee.
The first thing I thought of when I read this was that old saturday morning cartoon that was made up of all star athletes Gretsky, MJ, etc...This could be a decent concept, I mean the Islander carrying the whaling harpoon is pretty badass, Jersey Devil, Blackhawk, are all cool, but what the hell do you do with a penguin???

The team is no longer owned by Disney, so of course they're no longer named after a Disney movie.

You really shouldn't have named all those superheroes, Paul because now I really wanna' see a flick made out of guys like that. "Surround himself with water whenever he wants" is something I'd really like to see.
