The Incredible Hulk wears a Trojan

Fresh from its clothing deal with the Dallas Cowboys, Marvel announced this morning that it’s licensing such characters as Spider-Man, The Hulk, Wolverine and Captain America for a line of co-branded apparel for the University of Southern California.

The agreement was made through the Dallas Cowboys subsidiary Silver Star Merchandising, which in May signed a 10-year contract with USC for the exclusive rights to manufacture, license and distribute its sports apparel on campus and at its athletic venues. The Marvel Super Heroes collection will include clothing and hats for infants, children and adults featuring USC colors of cardinal and gold, as well as the school’s logos and Trojan mascot. The line will be available beginning later this month online and at mass and sporting good retailers, and USC bookstores.

As a life long UCLA Bruins fans, I have to think the Red Hulk would have been far more appropriate! ;)

I was thinking of an entirely DIFFERENT kind of Trojan’s! :-O

Big deal… Disney did this decades ago with the University of Oregon. (Not to mention the 1984 Summer Olympics.)

Many newspaper cartoonists also created university mascots. Dirk West created both Rider Red for Texas Tech and Herbie Husker for Nebraska.

So Captain America is now Comrade China? Kaptain Kyrgyzstan? Private ‘Nam? (Color the star yellow and it’s perfect!) Major Macedonia? Sgt. Spain?

The secret identity of the (steroidal?) Incredible Hulk?
