Oklahoma City Thunder and other NBA teams get Marvel Comics makeover

In the NBA preview issue of ESPN the magazine, on sale now, the NBA teams are illustrated by Marvel Comics artists.

ESPN The Magazine has teamed up with Marvel’s artists to produce 30 “variant covers” illustrating each NBA team and its 2010-2011 outlook for the season.  The Thunder, perhaps unsurprisingly, are tied in with Thor, the God of Thunder in Marvel Comics.  The Thunder’s image features Kevin Durant and Thor, with the headline “Perfect Storm.”  Durant also appears on the cover of the magazine, holding the hammer of Thor.  He’s joined by LeBron James, with Captain America’s shield, and Kobe Bryant, with Iron Man’s gauntlet.

Click past the cut for the full lineup of covers, and ESPN the Magazine’s season predictions.
