I Don't Totally Hate This

Designed by Marvel, “The BrooklyKnight will appear at all Brooklyn Nets home games and support his team against the invasion of opponents. He is equipped to handle almost any threat with a protective metal B on his chest, metal knee, elbow, and face coverings, defined muscles, including a six-pack, and a multi-functional cape.”

Is Disney a parent shareholder of this team?
I hate team related sports tie ins. Blahhhh!
But...I'm sure the fans are going to love it and think it's cool.
So...I'm good with that. You can't please everyone.
