Brutus Buckeye: mascot, cheerleader … super hero?
ESPN has teamed up with Marvel for a super College Football Playoff comic, and Ohio State’s most famous face is right in the middle of it.
ESPN on Thursday released a drawing made by the famous comic publisher that features mascots from the four teams in the College Football Playoff. Brutus Buckeye is joined by Alabama’s “Big Al,” the Clemson Tiger and a Washington Huskie for a special college football version of The Avengers.

Marvel has dipped into the college football world before. The comic publisher made comics for some marquee Week 1 matchups in the 2016 season and also made comics previewing last year’s College Football Playoff semifinals — which didn’t end well for Michigan State.
