ESPN and Marvel teamed up to recreate six classic comic book covers for college football kickoff season — and BYU made the list.
In a recreation of the “Marvel Double Feature, Vol. 1 #1” from December 1973, Cosmo the Cougar blasts through the comic book cover alongside LSU’s mascot Mike the Tiger. The original cover — which has Captain America and Iron Man — was created by Jack Kirby. The homage artist for the BYU-LSU cover is Andrea Di Vito.
BYU plays LSU on Saturday, Sept. 2 at 8:30 p.m. CDT in Houston, Texas.
Before playing the Tigers, the Cougars are hosting a preseason game at LaVell Edwards Stadium against Portland State on Saturday, Aug. 26 at 1 p.m. MDT.
