NFL Superpro
Speaking of ill-considered licenses, here's a guy who was willed into existence as part of a brief partnership between Marvel and the National Football League. When would've-been star athlete (he got injured saving a child) turned sports reporter Phil Grayfield is inadvertently on hand as thieves rob a super-scientist/NFL fan's house, he borrows an experimental suit of next-generation football gear and uses it like power armor to battle this and other football-related criminality.

Future comics all-star Fabian Niezca claims that he took the job of creating "SuperPro" exclusively to score free NFL tickets. Sad thing is, it's not hard at all to imagine a version of this clown popping up should The Agents ever wind up investigating nefarious-yet-charmingly-low-tech doings surrounding a football stadium. (Fitz: "Just when I think you Americans can't do anything worse to football!")
