The concept of a dynamic duo conjures up a comic book sort of scenario.

Such scenarios typically call for a hero and sidekick.

Batman and Robin.

Green Hornet and Kato.

Boris and Natasha. OK, maybe not.

So, in the case of OSU's dynamic duo, Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon, who's the hero and who's the sidekick?

Cowboys safety Markelle Martin offered his assessment.

“I would say Blackmon is the hero,” Martin said. “Sometimes Weeden will get into a little bind, a little trouble and he can just throw the ball up to Blackmon. And he'll save the day.

“He's that talented to be that kind of guy — save the offense, save a drive, save a quarterback.

“And that's what a hero does, he saves the day.”

Let the debate begin:

So, who really is the hero?

Weeden: “He's the hero and I'm the sidekick, no question about it. Justin does all the dirty work. He's the hero. He's a stud.”

Blackmon: “I would say I'm more of the sidekick. And Brandon is the super hero. He controls everything. I just do what he tells me to do.”
