Actors Chris Pratt and Chris Evans are the stars of two massive superhero franchises. Evans, a native Bostonian, thrilled audiences as Captain America last spring in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, while Pratt helmed the blockbuster hit of the summer as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy.

But now, the two stand on opposite sides of the battlefield, as Evans is an unabashed Patriots fan, while Pratt is a major Seattle Seahawks supporter. What happens when two larger-than-life superheroes face off?

An epic Twitter war and a high-stakes Super Bowl bet, that’s what.

The opening shot was taken by Captain America Monday afternoon.


Soon after, Star-Lord returned fire.

The gauntlet thrown, Captain America challenged Star-Lord to put his money where his mouth is.

The crafty superhero replied in a flash, offering terms Captain America could never refuse.

Captain America heroically accepted the terms, offering his own in return.

And with a final tweet (and a cheap shot at Tom Brady), the bet was on.

Now no matter what happens in the Super Bowl this year, children at either the Seattle Children’s Hospital or Christopher’s Haven –a nonprofit that provides supportive housing for families whose children are receiving outpatient pediatric cancer treatments in Boston– will be getting a hero’s welcome.

So whether you’re Team America…

…or Team Guardian…

We’re all Team Superhero when it’s for a good cause.
