We often tend to imagine people we admire as superheroes. Possessing a superpower of some kind and swooping in at the right time to save us. Now, what if we told you that one of the most iconic players in the history of football, has gone ahead and transformed himself into a superhero?
There are millions of people around the world who idolize Cristiano Ronaldo. He is truly a man of many talents – ace footballer, doting father, successful entrepreneur and let’s not forget, he is incredibly handsome too. The Juventus FC forward has now added ‘superhero’ to his long list of talents.
His followers received a nice surprise when he posted a video on his social media pages. Ronaldo has created a comic book series where he dons the role of a superhero (might we add, in a fancy superhero outfit) and fights against other characters such as aliens and robots. The release coincides with Free Comic Book Day which aims to encourage youngsters to read more. What’s more, an animated television series based on the comic books will air soon!
Speaking on the official Strikerforce website, Cristiano Ronaldo said: “In the same way football connects cultures and people around the world, I believe great animated characters and heroes can do the same and that’s why I am excited to bring together these passions of football and superheroes through this project and share it with my fans.”
Now, who wouldn’t want to buy the comic books and see their favourite football player battle it out as a superhero?!
