Marvel Comics has done something the Bears cannot. Implemented an explosive offense at Soldier Field.
It could be the first offensive explosion of the season at the 85-year-old stadium.
(Chicagoans will take it any way they can get it.)
The Soldier Field demolition is part of the January 6 launch of Marvel’s “Siege” mini-series, in which villains raze the venerable institution in hopes of framing some feuding superheroes.
“Siege,” a four-part series, lays the groundwork for a healing of sorts among Marvel heroes who have endured a good guy civil war that turned Spider-Man and Captain America against the likes of Iron Man and the Avengers.
But he didn’t have his sights set on Soldier Field from the get go.
“I’m not the biggest sports guy and I meant no disrespect to sports fans, but we needed something so horrendous to happen for them to be united again,” he says. To achieve the effect the writer had villians demolish the field during a game, when players and fans were present.
It's one method for "blowing up" a team, but most Chicago fans would prefer a simple personnel swap.
