Marvel Comics To Produce Limited Edition Brian Dawkins "Weapon X" Tribute Poster

Fans in attendance this Sunday will receive a limited edition tribute poster to Brian Dawkins made by Marvel Comics

Brian Dawkins has long used the nickname "Weapon X," which is a reference to his favorite comic book character, Wolverine. In fact, if you've ever seen his locker, it was always filled with Wolverine pictures and figurines. So this weekend when the Eagles retire Dawkins' #20, Marvel Comics will also join the tribute.

Fans attending the game will get a poster drawn by artist Jorge Molina featuring Brian Dawkins drawn as Wolverine.

"One is the ferocious leader of the legendary X-Men and world-famous star of comic books, cartoons, video games and movies...the other is a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, a six-time All-Pro and a member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team...both are the best they are at what they do." said Bill Rosemann, Editor, Marvel Custom Solutions. "A peaceful family man while off the field, once he donned his #20 jersey, Brian Dawkins -- inspired by and embodying the best traits of the tenacious and unstoppable Wolverine -- was one of the most intense, hard-hitting, resilient and respected players in the history of the game. Marvel is excited and honored to partner with the Eagles and AAA in honoring one of Philly's finest."

This is a pretty cool thing for the Eagles and Marvel to do and something you know Brian Dawkins will appreciate. the poster will be revealed tonight on Comcast Sportsnet's Daily News Live at 5pm.

With plenty of events planned throughout the weekend to honor Dawkins, the Eagles are encouraging fans to use #Dawkins20 at the end of any tweets about the former Eagles great.

Oh and if anyone that goes to the game gets one of these posters and wants to send it their favorite blogger well... I'd be pretty happy about that!
