Superheroes Stomping Out Bullying

Guardians of the Galaxy with Gamora

This October is National Bullying Prevention Month.  I am just finding this out myself and it's amazing.  I was bullied when I was younger and no one really talked about it much or took action to prevent it so the fact that there is something being done now is incredible.

The Incredible Hulk

This relates to comics because Marvel is teaming up with the STOMP Out Bullying organization to bring awareness to this increasingly important issue through variant covers to some major titles that they publish.

STOMP Out Bullying is also an interesting organization because they work to decrease and prevent not only face-to-face bullying but also cyberbullying, sexting and other forms of abuse through technology. They also educate others on topics such as homophobia and racism and do this through their website as well as going out and educating communities all over the United States.

Go to their website and find out how you or your organization can get  involved or just pick up the following comics this month.

Captain America, Rocket Raccoon & Star Lord

Full title List of Variant Cover Comics:
  • Avengers #36
  • Captain America #25
  • Guardians of the Galaxy #20
  • Hulk #7
  • Inhuman #7
