The above poster, created by Marvel artist Jorge Molina, will be distributed to Eagles fans as they enter the stadium prior to Sunday night's Eagles-Giants game and the ceremony to retire Brian Dawkins' No. 20.
From the team's release:
"Every week, Eagles fans witnessed Brian transform himself from a humble, mild-mannered man to the fearless competitor that he was on Sundays," said Eagles President Don Smolenski. "He was a special player - ferocious, intense, fearless, intelligent - and on top of that, he was an incredible leader."Not bad from the Eagles pres, but comic book people just seem to have that flare for the dramatic:
"One is the ferocious leader of the legendary X-Men and world-famous star of comic books, cartoons, video games and movies...the other is a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, a six-time All-Pro and a member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team...both are the best they are at what they do." said Bill Rosemann, Editor, Marvel Custom Solutions. "A peaceful family man while off the field, once he donned his #20 jersey, Brian Dawkins -- inspired by and embodying the best traits of the tenacious and unstoppable Wolverine -- was one of the most intense, hard-hitting, resilient and respected players in the history of the game."
