CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It's a bird. It's a plane. It's ... "The Blender"?
On Tuesday, he became a real comic book hero as Gatorade, one of his sponsors, introduced him as "The Blender" as part of its "Freaks" online series.
"The Blender" is supposed to be Newton's alter-ego in that he blends the style of different quarterbacks. He is portrayed as a multi-faceted athlete who can hurt opponents with his arms and his legs.
Coincidentally or not, it was released on Tuesday, the day after Newton beat the New England Patriots 24-20 with his arms and legs in a "Monday Night Football" spectacular.
Houston defensive lineman J.J. Watt also is featured as "Megawatt."
