Sports stars sometimes get branded heroes—but very rarely do you catch them wearing superhero kits.

That, however, is exactly what will happen in the NRL in a couple of weekends as five teams will wear Marvel comics-inspired jerseys for Round 21 of fixtures.

The deal comes around after kit manufacturer Marvel and ISC teamed up for a promotion:
