Harry Potter is a Guardian of the Globe

Posted by No_name_here (1223 posts) - - Show Bio

Indeed, perhaps a might silly and just maybe a wee outside the laws of intellectual property, but if this series were real, it’d be a hoot (and that pun is very much intended).  Image’s Guardians of the Globe’s ranks already include Spawn, Invincible, Rick Grimes of WALKING DEAD and the President. Why not Harry Potter?


 El Santo
There’s some debate about whether or not this is an altogether-hoax or a snarky parody of Marvel’s Avengers promos to promote a book that Image already had in the pipeline. Given the August 2010 part at the bottom, I’d almost expect - - and really, hope for - - the later, since comic needs a little more fun absurdity, in my opinion. Rather than debate if JK Rowling really has licensed her signature character, why don’t we start a fantasy draft? Who else should be in the Guardians of the Globe? Me, myself, I’d want to luchador El Santo, the enigmatic masked man who is Mexico’s all-encompassing equivalent to Hulk Hogan, James Bond and Superman. Hey - - the guy already moonlights as a mummy-suplexing superhero, so he'd fit right in.

If Harry Potter is a Guardian of the Globe then this is gonna be one hell of a crossover. I've got 4 random ideas for Guardians, Noddy, Ben Kenobi, Pee Wee Herman and Mr. Strong. Just 3 random characters off of the top of my head.

Image made it a point to name this character "Gary" Potter so that there wouldn't be a problem

Great, now they will destroy anything people liked about the idea.

these just keep better and better. i think they're really just poking fun at Marvel. those got stupid, but these are great. they're not serious at all, which makes them better than Marvel's.

I like how harry potters tag says "dog farts" instead of hog worts ha ha ha
 
well this was funny the first couple of times, but its just getting a bit old now. they need to learn to quit a joke while they are ahead.
I don't think this is a real comic, at least not with this cast of characters, and i think the "dog farts" thing is a little give away towords that. If they did license harry potter wouldn't they keep the name of his school the same?
 
Anyways, ya i enjoy the joke making fun of marvels campaign but i think its just too much now. it's losing its funny for me.

"Fake" or not, these adverts are still a damn sight better than the Marvel ones. Shame DC's new lineup for the JLA has already happened or we might have had 3 of these hahahaha

Yes, he can be their archenemy. Spawn can tear his head off in one page, like he did with Kincaid! 8D
