The NHL Guardian Project just released Toronto's superhero: The Maple Leaf. Befitting the largest fanbase in the NHL we have the biggest Guardian. Bangin Panger has a great post on the Guardians and their superhero inspirations but I think he'll have his work cut out for him. The description of The Maple Leaf features the following:
The Maple Leaf, or "Trunk" as the rest of the Guardians know him, is one of the funniest of the Guardians. Always quick with a joke or a sarcastic barb, the Maple Leaf often disarms his opponents by bringing levity to tense situations.
Sounds like Leafs fans are the real Guardian. While this is clearly targeted towards a younger demographic than that which posts here there is something that will interest anyone here: A free Maple Leafs' jersey.
