Jeremy Lin will be teaming up with Marvel Comics Totally Awesome Hulk.
The New Jersey Net point guard will appear in the series 13th issue in December.
“I was here in New York when Linsanity happened and it never stopped for me,” comic writer Greg Pak told AM New York. “I followed him everywhere. I just love the guy. And at a certain point, I just found myself thinking, ‘Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if the biggest Asian American superhero met the biggest Asian American sports star?’ ”
In the new Totally Awesome Hulk, Hulk is portrayed by Korean American Amadeus Cho who replaced Dr. Bruce Banner from previous versions of the Hulk.
“They had me with Hulk’s hair. We’re kindred spirits,” Lin said. “It is an honor and a cool opportunity to become part of the Amadeus Cho, ‘Totally Awesome Hulk’ storyline. Additionally, I think it’s great that Marvel is making real efforts to add diversity to its superheroes and their origin stories.”
