I just found out that WWE has taken another venture. This time, it is in comic books – WWE HEROES. I think it’s a great idea, as it covers most of their target market. I am a big fan of comic books too, so seeing my favorite WWE Superstars immortalized in comic books is awesome!
The character line-up so far includes Triple H, Undertaker, Batista, Shawn Michaels, Big Show, John Cena, CM Punk, Kane, Edge, Chris Jericho, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Carlito, Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Kelly Kelly, and WWE owner Vince McMahon and of course, the reason why I bothered to write this—Randy Orton. And no, Randy doesn’t seem to be the antagonist.
There’s a character called the Shadow King that’s the primary villain. He’s supposed to be an ancient being that basically is obsessed with the WWE. Then there’s a character called the Firstborn who is like the protagonist, I think. The story goes that Shadow King might be in the roster. Cute, isn’t it?
If you ask me, Undertaker could be the Shadow King. He’s undead, right?
Anyway, I’ve seen a few of the artwork and I think they’re pretty amazing. It’s going to be launched on March 23, 2010. The people working behind it have backgrounds of working for DC Comics, so you know it's good. You can read part 1 of an interview with the editor here to find out more.
