Marveling At The Football SuperPro

Seems like a good day to mention the Marvel Comics NFL SuperPro, a 12 issue series (with a couple of special editions) that ran in the early 1990s, with a super powered football player, fighting crime.

Phil Greyfield met with Spider-Man and Captain America, and had Instant Replay, Quick Kick and Sanction as his main foes (as well as basketball, hockey and baseball), with cover art mostly by John Romita, Ron Frenz and Joe Sinnott (with Jose Delbo doing most of the inside art).

Those crazy 1990s! 

NFL SuperPro #2 and #3 (November and December, 1991)


NFL SuperPro #4 and #5 (January and February, 1992)


NFL SuperPro #6 and #7 (March and April, 1992)


NFL SuperPro #9 and #10 (June and July, 1992)


NFL SuperPro #11 and #12 (August and September, 1992)

  1. What's really baffling is that they already tried this (with even less success) with Kickers Inc. over in the New Universe range.
