Brookly Knight comic


Sports mascots range from the iconic to the downright bizarre. Now, basketball fans will have to decide in which category to put the Brooklyn Nets' new mascot, the BrooklyKnight. 

At first glance, the BrooklyKnight sort of looks like a cross between Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight and bounty hunter Boba Fett, who hails from a borough far, far from Brooklyn. Or is he dressed like a Medieval Times worker from a renaissance restaurant that would be located in that electronic TRON world? Either way, he's got a different look than New York's preeminent mascot, Mr. Met.



The Brooklyn Net Mascot The Brooklyn Knight


The Nets introduced a new super hero mascot for their move to Brooklyn named BrooklyKnight (a play on the demonym Brooklynite) on November 3, 2012 – he was lowered from the ceiling of the Barclays Center amid sparks and fanfare and introduced by Nets PA announcer David Diamante: "Here to defend Brooklyn, he's the BrooklyKnight." The mascot was co-created by Marvel Entertainment, a sister company to NBA broadcasters ABC and ESPN. A 32-page comic book titled BrooklyKnight #1, written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Mike Deodato Jr., was released by Marvel to commemorate the unveiling of the mascot.
