NHL’s LA Kings + Super Heroes + Tattoo = ?

One might not think comics and the rough and tumble game of professional hockey would be a good match, but think again. Last year, Stan Lee and the National Hockey League announced that Lee would create 30 superheroes for NHL teams. Of course, the comics connections don’t end there – at one point “Spawn” creator Todd McFarlane was co-owner of the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers. There are, in fact, numerous examples of hockey and comics colliding. Here’s one more.

The Los Angeles Kings are holding a tattoo contest encouraging fans of the team to show off their King’s themed ink to win up to $1000. Friend of CBR Kristina Morgan took up the challenge and submitted the following entry – a superhero themed Kings player called “Super Kings Girl.” Original artwork by Robert Ullman, tattoo by Graham Chaffee at Purple Panther Tattoo, photo taken by John Weiss. Have a look! Good luck , Kristina – you have our vote for the most impressive hockey themed tattoo we’ve ever seen!
