Hero Spotlight: NFL Superpro
Phil Grayfield's career as a football player was cut short due to an injury so he ended up getting an armor that gave him super powers and became the NFL Superpro. If it sounds stupid it's only because it is. In his short career of a super hero he teamed up with Spider-man and Captain America so hey, he's got that going for him at least.
Writer Fabian Nicieza considers this the lowest point of his career, and he's written some crap so that's saying something. This book is so bad it's actually garnered a cult following for being such garbage. This character is co-owned by Marvel and the NFL and the NFL won't let Marvel use him anymore. Writer Robert Kirkman wanted to use him in his Marvel Team-Up run but wasn't allowed, even if he just called the character Superpro. Also, I'm not sure about this but if memory serves the armor Captain America used in mid 90's was the Superpro armor reworked.
