Iron Man, the world-famous armored avenger, joins the U.S. military to defend America from the dastardly dragon Fin Fang Foom in Marvel Comics’ 15th free, military-exclusive comic book, available at the Fort Hood Exchange.
In the all-new 36-page comic, an evil energy conglomerate awakens the ancient beast while illegally drilling in the Alaskan ocean.
When the enraged creature makes its way to Seattle to wreak havoc on the citizenry, it’s up to Iron Man, the military and Tony Stark’s allies Pepper Potts and Col. James Rhodes — also known as Iron Patriot — to stop the monster’s path of destruction.
The issue, created by the team of writer William Harms, penciler Tom Grummett, inker Cory Hamscher, colorist Chris Sotomayor, letterer Joe Sabino and cover artist Adi Granov, will be the first Iron Man title in the series, which began in 2005.
One million comics will be distributed to exchanges worldwide.
“We are excited to bring the 15th military-exclusive Marvel comic book to service members and military families worldwide,” said David Swenson, the Fort Hood Exchange’s Clear Creek Main Exchange store manager. “It’s hard to believe this partnership started eight years ago, but if the reception to the prior comics is any indication, we should have another winner with this latest, action-packed publication.”
