Not even Marvel can make a Beaver look menacing.

Especially one named, "Benny!"

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.

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.

I know a little bit. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that every team needs a good goalie!

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!

Lol why does Brutus only have one arm?

HS

Personally Hove, I thought they'd have Urban be Thanos ;)

It is time!!!!!

HS

Because Brutus Buckeye is the one who killed Dr. Richard Kimble’s wife.

HS

Uh...maybe because Brutus can woop Benny with one arm tied behind his back?

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.

Brutus looks scared, like "holy crap, what if Urban isn't here on Sept. 1. ....

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

Ours looks the least like what I would consider a comic book cover.

THE Ohio State University

HS
milhouse4588's picture

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

HS

Seems like Brutus always gets the shaft.

OSU Indiana:

OSU's previous playoff version:

Compared to Bama's Marvel/ESPN lovefest.

And EVERY ONE OF THESE DEPICTIONS is better than Brutus. SMH.

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.
