Justice League Custom Comic Somehow Features Shaquille O’Neal And Steel In The Same Room At The Same Time

NBA Justice League

The NBA All-Star Game is today, meaning the best players in the world have gathered together to do dozens of interviews, hang out for a bit, and then play a game with absolutely no defense unless it turns out to be close in the final 3 minutes. It’s a good time.

It also means there is ample opportunity for every manner of product placement and cross promotion, and comics were almost certainly going to get in on the action. This time it’s in the form of a custom comic, as the Justice League visit the set of Inside The NBA to hang out with Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal. But the team who put this comic together made one embarrassing gaffe: Shaquille O’Neal and Steel are seen in the same room at the same time, and we all know that’s impossible, as they are the same man.

O’Neal, the former number one pick, four time NBA champion, and metal clad, hammer wielding super hero, seems unfazed by the situation. So how is he pulling this off? Perhaps, knowing that this could someday happen, he made a contingency plan for an ally, aware of his secret identity, to cover for him in the Steel armor — à la Spider-Man and the Prowler, or Daredevil and about a dozen other heroes at some point or another —  thus keeping his secret safe. For the answer to this and other burning questions, you’ll just have to try to get your hands on a copy of The Justice League Goes Inside The NBA: All-Star Edition, which is being handed out for free all weekend at the All-Star Game in New Orleans.
