Spiderman and Green Lantern, move aside: a new breed of superheroes has arrived. The Guardians -- a group of 30 superheroes based on your favourite NHL teams -- are fighting together against the evils of Deven Dark and his posse of villainous femme fatales.

A combined effort of legendary Stan Lee, POW! Entertainment, and the NHL, this new comic sensation, though geared towards younger audiences, leaves older fans in stitches over its intense cheese factor. Already being released piece by piece on its official site, avid viewers follow individual NHL superheroes -- each imbued with his own powers distinctive to the city and team from which he hails -- as they combat individual battles in an overarching war against evil.

Brought to life by Vicon House of Moves (Ironman 2), I'm curious to see exactly where and how far this web-comic phenomenon will go.
