Even if you don’t follow the NFL with fervor, you have probably heard of Tim Tebow, this year’s quarterback media sensation. Home-schooled and extremely religious, the Broncos’ field marshal combines the basically hapless – he can barely throw a football — with the incredibly heroic — he once played half a high school game with a broken leg. He’s also given to giving credit for his late-in-the-game comebacks to play calling by the Big Guy upstairs. More controversially, he’s the originator of the act now known as “Tebowing” — genuflecting in prayer after a big play right then and there no matter what the situation.
While they don’t equate him with a miracle, Disney stablemates ESPN and Marvel have teamed up for a brief cartoon painting Tebow as a superhero. The segment is barely a minute long, and really only features some stills drawn in the mighty Marvel style, so “minimum comics content.” And no Tebowing.
