Marvel Comics Anti-Bully Variants Coming in October

September 5, 2014 0 By EVA

The term “nerd” wasn’t always a hip thing to be called, and I’m sure a lot of our beautiful nerdy readers have felt what it’s like to be bullied at some point in their lives. I myself suffered through years of that unfortunate branding before it suddenly became a compliment.

In honour of National Bullying Prevention Month, Marvel Comics are reaching out to those fans who were bullied by teaming up with “STOMP Out Bullying” to release some anti-bullying variant covers for seven of their titles. Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso had this to say in the press release:

“The centre 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.”

Variants will be available for Captain America #25, Guardians of the Galaxy #20, Hulk #7, Rocket Raccoon #4, Legendary Star-Lord #4, Avengers #36 and Inhuman #7. Here is a preview of some of those covers:
