This October Marvel is joining STOMP Out Bullying with a number of variant covers for their titles Rocket Raccoon #4, Guardians of the Galaxy #20, Avengers #36,Inhuman #7, Hulk #7, Captain America #25, Legendary Star-Lord #4. This is all to support National Bullying Prevention Month, something that has been on everyone’s mind even more after the awful events of last week.
Ross Ellis, founder and Chief Executive Officer of STOMP Out Bullying stated, “We are privileged to join forces with Marvel Entertainment on this critically important bullying and cyberbullying prevention campaign. Bullying and cyberbullying have reached epidemic proportions, with one out of every four kids being a victim. And bullying transcends race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation; in fact, some of Marvel’s greatest Super Heroes were themselves bullied as kids and teens. But just as Spider-Man, Captain America, and Marvel’s many other Super Heroes were able to triumph and go on to combat evil, so can every one of us be a Super Hero in our own right by standing up and joining the fight to eradicate bullying.”
Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief of Marvel Comic added in a press release, “The center of Marvel’s storytelling history is the eternal struggle between good and evil, with many of its greatest Super Heroes having to contend with – and rise above – bullying, in all its forms. We are proud to join forces with STOMP Out Bullying on its important bullying prevention awareness mission. We hope that all our fans take a moment this month to educate themselves on the need to stop bullying among our youth by checking out the free resources STOMP Out Bullying has to offer.”
