Marvel And Stomp Out Bullying’s Variant Covers Encourage You To Stop Being Such A Jerk

Superhero comics have always come down pretty hard against bullying, whether it’s Superman sticking up for the little guy in 1938 or Marvel’s more direct approach to having nerdy weaklings suddenly turn into super-strong crime-fighters who turn the tables and beat the living crap out of the bad guys. Captain America, Spider-Man and the Hulk all follow that classic formula, and heck, the X-Men are an entire school made up of an oppressed minority that spends most of their time fighting robots made of racism.

So yeah, Marvel is, historically speaking, pretty dead set against bullying. That’s why it’s no surprise that they’re teaming up with the STOMP Out Bullying organization next month for a series of variant covers designed to raise awareness of bullying and help prevent it. The results are some pretty great covers that range from charming to genuinely hilarious.

You know, this might be a little counterproductive given the message that they’re trying to get across, but I can’t possibly be the only one thinking that last one is Gamorra offering to space-murder the bullies, right? Right. Either way, it’s still pretty great.

The STOMP Out Bullying variant covers will be available in October to commemorate National Bullying Prevention Month.
