LeBron James has now been made into a super hero, at least on paper. Marvel Comics and ESPN have come together to create a project called “LeBron: King of the Rings,” a limited-edition comic that is set to be published on October 19th of this year. You can see a preview, which is available online at ESPN.com.
The oddest part of it all is that LeBron has only won one championship, creating an awkward and perhaps premature chase after the money that comes with his powerful public image. In the comic, LeBron gets help on his free throws from Rick Barry, but then goes to visit Tibetan Monks to learn how to do a proper pick and roll. He also defeats a zombie and grows bionic legs.
Strangely enough, LeBron doesn’t win his seventh title until the 2029 – 2030 season, where he is in his late forties. Even more surprising, LeBron wins the championship for Cleveland and not Miami.
“We tried to play off the known story lines of LeBron James and his career,” co-creator Ty Wenger said.
We don’t know any of those story lines, but in the world of make believe, anything is possible.
