Not even Marvel can make a Beaver look menacing.

Especially one named, "Benny!"
I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.
Beavers are actually very menacing:
At least one beaver attack on a human is known to have been fatal: a 60-year-old fisherman in Belarus died in 2013 after a beaver bit open an artery in his leg. The incident was described by the media as "the latest in a series of beaver attacks on humans in the country", where a burgeoning beaver population has led to increased aggressive interactions with people. However, others criticized the victim, noting that he likely provoked the attack when he grabbed the beaver in an effort to take a photo with it
Non-fatal attacks on humans have included: an attack on a saltwater snorkeler off the coast of Nova Scotia, which was unusual given that beavers are usually limited to fresh water; the mauling of an elderly woman in Virginia by a rabid beaver; an attack on a Boy Scout leader in Pennsylvania, after which members of the Scout troop killed the rabid animal by stoning; and an attack on a man swimming in Dobra River, Croatia.
Beaver attacks can also be fatal for domestic animals. A dog died during surgery after being bitten by a beaver in 2010 at University Lake in Alaska, where a number of unprovoked attacks against pets were recorded. A husky was killed by a beaver attack in Alberta, which has also had several non-fatal attacks.
Carl... damn it...
You obviously have not seen Zombeavers!
Or a Buckeye, truthfully.
But, he's famous!

By a longshot. These are pretty terrible.

The OSU vs oSU is the worst one, the guy who does 11W Game day posters is 1000% better

True the illustration is simpler, but it’s more true to the early days of comics.
But I don’t like the superior positioning of the aggressive beaver about to t bag poor frightened looking Brutus. Obvious Buckeye hatred here.
Ohio against the world!!!
Agreed! I assume the Marvel one can't be downloaded and printed for free too.
Edit: After clicking on the ESPN link it looks like you could download and print it. Not sure if many places would do it since it has a bunch of logos on it.

My loyalties are to DC, sorry Marvel.

you are a bird!!!!!!!! do you even know anything about football?
I know a little bit. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that every team needs a good goalie!

Ours is wack!
The ugly truth is often downvoted
Another conspiracy by ESPN.
Noon games suck
The other posters are all recognizable as Marvel cover styles from the past. Ours? Not so much...

I don't like it. Look at the other three: the mascots are going after each other. Now look at ours: Benny Beaver is standing over Brutus while Brutus sort of has a surprised look and is waving a flag. Nope, don't like it at all.
This just makes me ready for Walt to work his magic. The Oregon State and TCU ones are about to be fire!
...just waiting for Walt to drop the game posters...
There's no points for second place, gentlemen.
If you continue to think what you always thought, you will continue to get what you always got. #AlumforStaff
Lol why does Brutus only have one arm?
Personally Hove, I thought they'd have Urban be Thanos ;)
It is time!!!!!
Because Brutus Buckeye is the one who killed Dr. Richard Kimble’s wife.
Uh...maybe because Brutus can woop Benny with one arm tied behind his back?
Class of 2001 - classless since then.
Ohio State vs. Oregon State is a very lopsided match up. Maybe that quelled the creative juices.
How does ours suck so bad? Looks like a 1950s cereal box. Wtf.
I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.
I Believe In Ohio State.
Brutus looks scared, like "holy crap, what if Urban isn't here on Sept. 1. ....
"I will pound you and pound you until you quit." — Woody Hayes
Id rather urban make like Adam Warlock. Thanos aint the guy, folks. Warlock is.
True sign of a guy that knows his shit. Let these kids make their Thanos memes. The OG comic boys know the real deal. Warlock is the GOAT
They will all know Him very soon, my friend...
I love this, and I'm stealing it btw :)
Ours looks the least like what I would consider a comic book cover.
"Because the rules won't let you go for three." - Woody Hayes
THE Ohio State University
Our sucks compared to the others.
I'm guessing they made it only as a fan service because Ohio State brings views/dollars. It shouldn't be a good game at all, especially compared to the others they did covers for.
To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.
The Bama one is awesome. The tOSU v OSU one sucks. Not stylized at all
Seems like Brutus always gets the shaft.
Compared to Bama's Marvel/ESPN lovefest.
And EVERY ONE OF THESE DEPICTIONS is better than Brutus. SMH.

And then there's this. UGH.
Did they even try with OSU?
What is that elephant doing to Brutus?!?!
"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing." - Abraham Lincoln
Looks as if they left ours for the DC comic artist. Looks straight out of a Richie Rich instead of something cool like The Fantastic Four.
Looks like a billboard outside of Granny's Neck, Montana or someplace...
It. Is. Time.
this is a joke right?
Buckeyes will Plow the beavers
