Heading into the regular season, the New York Jets have a new partnership with Marvel that will bring some amazing content, merchandise, and experiences to MetLife Stadium.
As per the Media Relations Department of the New York Jets, there is a new partnership in place with Marvel that will enhance a home game this upcoming season. The Jets will have a special “Green Out” event on Sunday, October 21st, 2018 in their Week 7 home game against the Minnesota Vikings.
This special event will have a Hulk vs. Thor theme, including a limited edition comic book produced by Marvel and distributed by the Jets. This comic book will be written by Fabian Nicieza, a Marvel Comics contributor and a huge Jets fan which makes everything fall into place perfectly.
At that Week 7 matchup, the first 15,000 fans will also get another limited-edition goodie. A Hulk bobblehead will be given to those first few fans as well as posters of the Hulk vs. Thor comic book at the end of the game.
