A superhero on the basketball court will be less of an Avenger and more of a Defender this year.

At least in the comic books.

Marvel and ESPN the Magazine have teamed up to create "LeBron: King of the Rings."

And before you roll your eyes about more LeBron James title counting, the collaboration is more humor than braggadocio.

Any strip that invokes the "I Ching," "The Art of War" and "I'm O.K, You're O.K." would get a seal of approval even before the Tibetan Monks, gypsy magicians, cloning, Shane Battier as a zombie and Russell Westbrook with a bionic arm.

You can judge for yourself after reading the entire story.
