Wolverine has a skeletal system made of Adamantium and his body can regenerate after almost any injury. Spider-Man has superhuman strength, with the ability to shoot webbing from his wrists and leap from building to building. The Human Torch can burst into flames and fly faster than any jet plane on Earth, and the Invisible Woman, well, she can turn invisible.
Tim Tebow’s super power is the ability to go 6-for-16 through 3 quarters and somehow pull a win out of his ass once he summons his magical pet kicker to boot a few 55-yarders. This isn’t a joke, Tebow is getting his own comic book.
“Like the Marvel heroes who pull off last minute victories, Tim Tebow has fans around the world on the edge of their seats and believing that in our own lives when time is running out and all looks lost, we can dig deep inside and use our various strengths to triumph over insurmountable odds” says Bill Rosemann of Marvel.
