Marvel Teams Up With The Philadelphia Eagles & AAA To Honor Brian Dawkins
Marvel Entertainment, the Philadelphia Eagles and AAA are proud to announce the release of a special, limited-edition poster on Sunday, September 30th at Lincoln Financial Field in honor of NFL star Brian Dawkins. As one of the most beloved players in Philadelphia Eagles football history, Dawkins was known for both his excellence on the field and his love of Wolverine, one of Marvel’s iconic Super Heroes. This special poster, provided to fans as they arrive at the stadium for Sunday night’s game against the New York Giants, features Dawkins immortalized by artist Jorge Molina as the legendary X-Men character, complete with classic pose and Adamantium claws!
Eagles President Don Smolenski said:
Every week, Eagles fans witnessed Brian transform himself from a humble, mild-mannered man to the fearless competitor that he was on Sundays. He was a special player – ferocious, intense, fearless, intelligent – and on top of that, he was an incredible leader. His connection with our fans was one-of-a-kind, which is why we are excited to be working with Marvel and AAA to provide those fans with a souvenir that captures Brian in his element as ‘Weapon X.’
Brian Dawkins’ love for Wolverine is legendary and his passion for the heroic mutant well-documented in news features with ESPN, the NY Daily News and more. From a locker full of Wolverine memorabilia to his very X-Men warm-ups and poses on field, Dawkins tenure on the Eagles will always remind fans of the Super Hero often referred to as “Weapon X”.
Dawkins is a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, a six-time All-Pro and a member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team.
