Newsarama ^ | June 25, 2012 | Newsarama Staff

Marvel is teaming with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to observer Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October with several pink-tinged variant covers, plus a one-page advertorial supplement educating readers on the issue.

The following comics, all out in October, will have Komen-themed variant covers:

· Avengers #31 · Captain America #18 · Captain Marvel #5 · Fantastic Four #611 · Invincible Iron Man #526 · Mighty Thor #21 · Uncanny X-Men #20 · Wolverine #315

"Marvel is proud to partner with Susan G. Komen For the Cure to support their unparalleled efforts to raise awareness about the risk of breast cancer to both women and men," Marvel publisher Dan Buckley said in a statement. "We're in a unique position to educate all our fans and increase awareness of the ways to fight — and reduce — this risk of this disease by utilizing our comics and online presence."

Marvel has announced that they'll also support this initiative through social media and content on Marvel.com.

KEYWORDS: abortion; breastcancer; comics; disney; komen; marvelcomics; susangkomen
First, Marvel promotes gay 'marriage' in X-Men; now they are pushing abortion via Susan G. Komen/Planned Parenthood. If you have children that frequent comic shops (although there aren't many of them anymore); heads up.

Comics USED to be fun...now they are thinly-disguised propaganda sheets for the Communist Party USA.

So much for Marvel. Just saw Avengers and that will be the last one for me. Too bad.

Do they realize that 98% of their readership is MALE? Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers hasn’t been the same since swinging that PINK bat last month...

Commies have to appeal to the lower reading levels?

Ever notice how the Left is determined to suck the fun out of everything in life? No sugar, no meat, no jokes, nothing remotely considered by them unsafe, no circus, no rodeos, no pets, no fancy cars, no fur coats, no wood furniture, no smoking, no football, no playground activities that might hurt feelings, etc. etc. They just insert their idiocy and advocacy into absolutely EVERY niche of life. There is no escaping their intrusive meddling.

Komen is a tax-exempt business no more interested in finding a cure than I am in finding Waldo

Ooooohh, THAT Marvel... I thought it was about the guy that makes .22 caliber conversion kits for 1911’s. it really make sense when combined with Komen, though.

Children don't frequent comic shops. That's part of the medium's problem. Readership averages in their 30s.

Also, keep in mind Marvel is now a Disney company.

"First, Marvel promotes gay 'marriage' in X-Men;..."

No, first it was dissing the TEA party with a black superhero looking at a TEA party gathering and saying "There's not many that look like me"

When did the commies take over Marvel?

Ah, yes...that issue of ‘Captain America’ from a few years back. Of course, DC featured the earth ‘goddess’ Gaia in their books back in the 90’s...
