Marvel has published BrooklyKnight #1 to coincide with the mascot's debut. The special one-shot is written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Mike Deodato.

"As a Brooklynite and a hardcore hoops fan, for me to get the opportunity to help create a superhero for my home borough's new team was a dream come true," said Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso.

"Working with the Nets staff, we have created a team superhero that is unlike anything the NBA has ever seen; a timeless character who can stand shoulder to shoulder with icons like Spider-Man, Captain America, Wolverine, and Thor. Let's go, Nets!"

BrooklyKnight made his debut ahead of the game against Toronto Raptors at the Barclays Centre.
