Tony Stark namedrops WWE superstar Brock Lesnar within the latest issue of the Avengers, confirming the wrestler exists within the Marvel Universe.
An upcoming treat!!
Wrestling fans who also love comics will little question be happy to learn that Brock Lesnar exists within the Marvel universe. Avengers #31 takes place back in 1,000,000 BC when Tony Stark was sent back when he found an old version of 1 of his Iron Man helmets, which could sound bizarre to most of the people, but that’s standard magazine stuff. Tony is battling with the prehistoric Avengers when he makes a quip about “Brock Lesnar Starbrand”. At the very least, readers and WWE fans now know that there’s the potential for the famous wrestler and other Marvel characters to cross paths. Aside from that one reference, it remains unknown what exactly is Lesnar’s place within the greater scheme of things.
What is Lesnar’s role in MCU?
The most likely answer is that Lesnar is simply like he’s in the real world, a wrestler and UFC fighter. But why waste a chance like that? Wouldn’t it’s fun if readers need to see Lesnar as a part of the Nova Corps, or maybe as a replacement version of the Hulk or His body even change if he was a Hulk?
Previous experiments by Marvel
Celebrity mentions and cameos are nothing new comics. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby made all types of appearances within the pages of their books back within the day. Even Geraldo Rivera popped up within the pages of X-Men comics back within the ’70s. Ultimate Spider-Man featured a Carson Daly name drop. Numerous other celebrity cameos in comic books worth enjoying and deciphering. Samuel L. Jackson was the real-life model for the last word version of Nick Fury, which is so popular that the MCU has him playing the part. So it stands to reason that albeit Brock Lesnar was only named dropped by Stark during a passing reference, there’s tons of potential for the WWE superstar to seem within the pages of a comic book also.
