New York Jets vs. Minnesota Vikings = Hulk vs. Thor

On October 21 the New York Jets take on the Minnesota Vikings, also that day at The Meadowlands the Hulk will take on Thor. National Football League‘s Jets has teamed up with Marvel Comics to present fans with Hulk bobbleheads and a Hulk vs. Thor comic book and poster.

As part of the new partnership, the Jets will host a Green Out against the Minnesota Vikings on October 21st. Presented by Toyota, the Green Out will highlight the partnership with a Hulk vs. Thor theme, specifically featuring a 16-page Hulk vs. Thor comic book produced by Marvel and distributed by the Jets. The comic will be written by long-time Marvel Comics contributor Fabian Nicieza, a long-time Jets fan and New Jersey native.

As the Jets battle the Vikings so will the Green Goliath battle the Norse God of Thunder. It’s Thor: Ragnarok all over again!

The Green Out presented by Toyota will include:

  • First 15,000 fans to enter MetLife Stadium will receive a limited-edition Hulk-themed bobble head standing on a Jets football field, courtesy of Toyota.
  • 55,000 limited-edition posters of the comic book cover will be distributed to fans as they exit the stadium
  • A Toyota vehicle wrapped with Hulk-themed imagery will be displayed in the stadium.
  • Hulk vs. Thor game theme and video board elements

 

But the partnership doesn’t end there.
Fifty years ago, January 12, 1969, Joe Namath and The Jets beat the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III.

Additionally, the Jets and Marvel will release an eight-page, digital-only comic book to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Super Bowl III in advance of their October 14th game against the Indianapolis Colts. Scheduled to be released in four chapters leading into the game, the first chapter will be available on Wednesday, October 10th, through the Official New York Jets App, newyorkjets.com and Jets social channels.
