Marvel Announces ‘Avengers: No More Bullying’ Comic, Bullies Get Vibranium Shields Upside The Head
It was only last month that Marvel revealed a set of anti-bullying variant covers designed to get kids to stop being complete jerks to each other, but apparently, it seems that an image of Gamorra offering to space-murder a group of mean children wasn't enough to solve all the problems. As a result, Marvel has taken the next logical step: A full-length anti-bullying comic featuring the Avengers, Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, all teaming up to try to put an end to bullying once and for all.
The result is the upcoming Avengers: No More Bullying #1, which will feature stories by Gerry Duggan, Sean Ryan, Jody Houser, Carlo Barberi, Tana Ford and Marcio Takara involving the Earth's Mightiest Heroes, all wrapped up in covers by Paul Renaud and Pascal Campion. And seriously? All joking aside? Campion's cover is one of the best I've seen from Marvel in a long time.
As much as it's easy for kids to identify with Peter Parker (Midtown High's only professional wallflower) when it comes to being bullied, there's just something about a floating Carol Danvers giving these high school jerks a stern talking to while Iron Man lazily repulsors up fallen books that makes me unbelievably happy. Please, Marvel, I'm begging you here: Make that a poster and send one to every classroom in America.
Avengers: No More Bullying #1 will be available in January.
