Avengers: No More Bullying

Friday, January 9th, 2015

I was curious about this particular one-shot ever since I had heard about it.  Marvel doing an anti-bullying comic sounded very interesting to me.  After reading it, I can say I’m glad I gave it a shot.  The book is well worth it.  The overall comic is broken into four short stories.  You get an Avengers story, Guardians of the Galaxy story, a Spider-Man story and then a story that doesn’t involve any of the heroes in a direct way.  I loved all of the stories in different ways.

If I had one complaint about this issue, it would be why did the creators feel the need to put in continuity when it came to the Avengers story.  You basically have the movie Avengers in the story except for the fact that Sam Wilson is Captain America, Thor is in his “Odinson” look and Iron Man is in his “Superior” armor.  Why not just use the characters and costumes that was in the movie?  Other than that, I think the story was pretty good.

Overall, I think this issue worked in a lot of ways.  Each issue shows a different aspect of being bullied and I think the resolution of each story was fantastic and the art for each story was incredible, especially the Guardians of the Galaxy story and the last story that didn’t involve any heroes.  Each story resonated with me in a different way and I really want to recommend this.  Good job Marvel.
