Mets Superheroes

If you’re a New York Mets fan or a comic book fan, you have probably heard the team has given superhero nicknames to two of their talented young pitchers: Matt Harvey is known as the Dark Knight while Noah Syndergaard is referred to as Thor. But what about the rest of the squad?

Those guys must feel pretty left out so Monkeys Fighting Robots decided to find the right characters for the rest of the starting pitcher staff, as well as the some position players.

Meet the rest of the super powered Mets!

2015 Mets

Curtis Granderson

New York Mets

From the leadoff position, Granderson is a player who has saved the Mets a few times this season by legging out a double when the game was on the line. His penchant for swiping an extra base when in need has earned him a speedy alter ego: The Flash

Daniel Murphy

New York Mets

The resident Irishman who was brought up as a professional hitter. It’s only fitting that he finds himself among the ranks of a galactic alliance that can smack you around thanks to the countless objects that emulate from their ring (hopefully Murphy gets a ring soon!): The Green Lantern

David Wright

David Wright

For anyone who has been a fan of the Mets or followed David Wright may remember when he was Captain of his countries team in the World Baseball Classic. He’s also an incredible guy on and off the field which makes him truly live up to the Captain America monicker.

Yoenis Cespedes

Yoenis Cespedes

He can do it all. He’s fast, strong, has a rocket of an arm from the outfield and even wears a shirt with a comic book style “BAM!” on it as an ode to his towering homeruns. Yoenis Cespedes truly is Superman.

Lucas Duda

Lucas Duda

Lucas Duda was almost invisible for two months, he had very pedestrian statistics. When the Mets traded for Kelly Johnson, Duda asked manager Terry Collins if he was going to take his job. “That’s up to you,” Terry said. One can only assume this angered Duda who proceeded to smash every single pitch that came his way. Lucas Duda is the Hulk. Duda Smash!

Wilmer Flores

Wilmer Flores

Wilmer Flores got traded, continued to play through his emotions, only to find out after he had bared his soul that the deal was off. Flores has been a Met since he was 16 so it was understandable. It also reminds you of a mutant who was very emotional, talented, and had been living a life on the road from an early age. Wilmer Flores is Nightcrawler.

Michael Conforto

Michael Conforto

The youngest Met. Taken under the wing of some of the best that Gotham has had to offer. The Boy Wonder, Michael Conforto is Robin.

Juan Lagares

Juan Lagares

The Mets gold glove centerfielder, his catches are web gems nearly every night. If a ball is in his vicinity, count yourself out. Juan Laggers is your friendly neighborhood Spider Man.

Jacob DeGrom

Jacob DeGrom

He is the Mets ace. DeGrom had a historic All Star appearance striking out three batters on ten pitchers. He holds all the cards when he’s on the mound, and you don’t want him to start dealing because his stuff is explosive. For that reason, DeGrom is Gambit.

Bartolo Colon

Bartolo Colon

There are a few that Bartolo Colon could be, but his experience is unquestioned. Although he has a demeanor that often invites laughs instead of intimidation, it’s no debate that Bartolo Colon is Beast on the mound.

Jonathon Niese

Jonathon Niese

Outside of David Wright, Jonathan Niese is the longest tenured player on the Mets roster. When I think of this lefty I think of an underrated superhero who can always hold his own and has been there through it all. Jonathan Niese is Cyclops.
