Like the rest of the guardians...stupid.

I like the GP concept, but for something supposedly several months in development with allegedly professional comic writers involved, it's been disappointing. The whole thing seems like some college art student spent the whole semester partying, and had to cram the whole project into one weekend.

Three things.

1: The NHL Guardian Project is a colossal flop. It's lame. The designs are uninspired and each one has way too may superpowers. And lame ones, too.

2: If the Red Wing has jets on its back, why does it need really clunky wheels to stand on?

3: I love that the Red Wing sounds like the one in charge. ;)

Ya... that's pretty bad. I'm no comic book aficionado but I know enough to know that is really weak. It's like someone drew a dude and then shoehorned wings and wheels on him. It's hideous.

I know nothing of such things. Where's Edi? He's the aficionado of all things graphic art-like.

Edi's version of a Red Wings guardian would simply be Lilja's beard.

Some of these have been pretty interesting and inspired and some have been pretty lame. The Red Wing looks more like an 80's Transformer than a super-human. It would have been more appropriate if the helmet resembled a falcon rather than a hawk, but whatever.

I think it bears remembering that Stan Lee was writing comics before science made sense to the common man. I think it's funny that the Canuck can make weapons out of rain, but back when Lee was writing, the Human Torch could knock people around with a flame-hammer.

Bolded exactly what I thought. It looks like a cross breed of Optimus Prime and Starstreaker (I think? The jet plane thinger)

I think you guys are analyzing it a little too much. It's just a promotion/gimmick. That's it. Not a comic-purist's wet dream nor a 3rd grade sketch. The NHL (God I can't believe I'm going to defend them :puke:) is just trying unconventional stuff to attract/engage fans. Failure? Pretty much. But I just feel people are taking it a little too seriously.

Yeah; we're gonna see Joe Kocur paired up with Chun-Li to fight Ryu and Wolverine in the next Marvel vs. Capcom game.

I don't think anyone is taking them too serious. The super hero idea has a lot of potential, but so far most of the are just recycled, or just terrible.

Um, OK.......... :unsure:
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I think it looks cool. But I didn't know the idea of "NHL Guardians" existed until I opened this thread, either.I just saw a transformer Red Wing lookin' guy and thought "Hey, that's pretty sweet!"

Sue me.
