Exhaustion had finally set in last night from the hectic couple of weeks I had been through, so I was in bed as soon as the kids were down last night. As I lay there waiting for sleep to overtake me, I was flipping through my Twitter feed on the phone, and realized that the Buffalo Sabres “guardian” was released last night.
My favorite tweet on the subject -
Wish the guardian was The Pegula not The Sabre
If you have no idea what I am talking about, The NHL and Stan Lee have come together to form a partnership that is going to bring to the world 30 new superheroes that will call the NHL Arenas around North America home. The Sabre is just one of the 30, that will be revealed one at a time until the All-Star game, when they will all begin their epic battles against evil. With all 30 teams getting a superhero – who exactly will they be battling?
The Sabre from NHL.com
“The Sabre” spent his pre-super hero life as a scientist specializing in hydro-engineering. He’s a man of deep thought, choosing to devote his life to green technology and its applications. His scientific endeavors have allowed him to travel the world and he has been deeply affected by the different cultures he’s experienced. The government has tried to make him a liaison, but he’s turned them down preferring to travel the world on his own dime and staying under the radar. He’s a noble intellectual who would rather outthink his opponent than beat him to smithereens.
As a superhero, The Sabre was the product of a hydroelectric experiment gone awry. As a result his body is totally comprised of water. He uses a specially designed hydro-suit that allows him to control his physical appearance although mostly he chooses a human form. He has the ability to be liquid, solid or in a gaseous (vapor), state, depending on what’s needed for the situation.
