On the NHL Guardians Project

Stan Lee and the NHL unveiled the Hurricane's cartoon superhero Guardian the other day. The intro calls him, a "Barometric Nightmare," and his powers include environmental empathy and barometric implosion. He also has a Carrot Top mullet sticking out of the back of his Lucha Libre mask. So I guess as a barometric nightmare his presence makes the bad guy's ears pop like a road trip to Asheville. Maybe he just has nasty PMS mood swings. And his environmental empathy powers must enable him to feel a storm's pain? So typhoons deserve some love too? The power I find most interesting is this barometric implosion thing. Does he activate this self-destruct implosion power after a slew of early season injuries? Maybe after the Canes run into a few hot goalies?

I love comic book superheroes, but this one ranks well below Chairface Chippendale and the Deadly Bulb. Hope this doesn't turn into a silly mess. Do we really want a Disney character breakfast on ice to be the most memorable thing from Raleigh's 2011 All-Star game?
