Last night, the nickname “Dr. Blocktopus” was created by Eric Buenning and me for Larry Sanders. Sanders dug the nickname and Eric and I began to collaborate on the Milwaukee Bucks’ version of the Sinister Six from Spider Man.
Eric wrote the words and I made the images. We didn’t want to stop after six players, so we turned the entire roster into Spider Man villains. Hopefully Stan Lee doesn’t sue us. Please enjoy.
The Sinister Six
Larry “Doctor Blocktopus” Sanders
Brandon “Mysterio” Jennings
Monta “Electro” Ellis
Ersan “Sandman” Ilyasova aka “Ersandman”
Mike “Kraven the Hunter” Dunleavy
John “Vulture” Henson
Armed with enormous “wings” that some have suggested give him the ability to fly (no word on whether Henson has tried), “Vulture” uses his superhuman attributes to cause havoc on the glass. Given that he hasn’t filled out just yet, his wings are still sharp and are considered weapons to anyone daring enough to them.
–Heightened physical attributes
About the Author (Author Profile)Jon Hartzell is a Bucks fan trying to be more optimistic. Larry Sanders is wonderful. During the Fear the Deer run he was a ball boy for the team and was constantly yelled at by Kelvin Sampson. He’s currently a student at UW-Madison and writes for NBA.com, DIME Magazine, and (formerly) A.V. Club Milwaukee.
