BWTB: J.J. Watt the Comic Book Hero

Posted Nov 21, 2013

He's not just the greatest defensive player in the NFL. J.J. Watt is also a comic hero.

After notching 20.5 sacks, 23 tackles for loss and 16 swatted passes in 2012, defensive end J.J. Watt was inundated with new opportunities.

A guest appearance on a TV show.

A slew of new commercials for a few different companies.

And now, a comic book character called "Mega Watt".

Watt is featured in a Gatorade/DC Comics feature here, and described the experience on Wednesday after practice.

“It’s pretty cool," Watt said. "It’s one of those things that, as a kid, you look at things like Superman and Spiderman and Batman, and to see yourself as a comic book character, it’s really cool."

He's clearly appreciative of the chance, but also thinks he'll be able to reflect on it when his career finishes.

"Those are the types of things that, when I’m done playing and I look back and I’m like, ‘I had a comic book character, that’s really cool,'" Watt said. "And that’s something I’ll be able to show my kids someday. It’s a really neat deal.”
