Gatorade Creates League Of Captains
After jumping on the comic book character bandwagon last year by partnering with DC Comics and creating “The Blender” and “MegaWatt” comic book-like characters out of NFL players Cam newton and JJ Watt to sell their sports drinks, Gatorade has decided to jump all the on this year and created the “League of Champions” – adding “Triiiple Impact” [Robert Griffin III], “The Sheriff” [Peyton Manning] and “Big Easy” [Eli Manning] to the mix and calling the whole lot of them the “League of Champions”. Each character will receive their own comic book as well as their own limited-edition Gatorade bottles.
Digital editions of the comics are available online at the official Gatorade site. Limited edition hard copy versions of the comic books for “The Blender” will be passed out at the Carolina Panthers-Buffalo Bills pre-season NFL football game on August 8, 2014.
