The Avengers assemble in Exchange and Marvel’s latest military-only free comic

aafes-avengers
Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Hulk, and Black Widow are all making their way to military installations around the world via one million free comic books published exclusively for the Armed Forces by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and Marvel Custom Solutions.

The new full-color comic, titled “Double Vision,” opens five years in the future, with the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes locked into a desperate battle with the hi-tech terrorist group Hydra, who are finally on the brink of conquering America itself. But when the rebellious Hawkeye begins asking the wrong questions, can the Avengers uncover a sinister conspiracy before it’s too late?

“We are thrilled that the Exchange and Marvel continue to work together to provide these complimentary comics to military members serving our country at home and abroad,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Adviser Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “We could not have imagined when the first military-only comic came out in 2005 that, eight years later, the 14th installment in the series would be shipping out.”

“Everyone at Marvel considers the members of the Armed Forces our true heroes, so we’ve assembled a top tier creative team to deliver 22 pages of action and adventure in the Mighty Marvel Manner,” said Editor Bill Rosemann. “Thanks to writer William Harms and artist Tom Grummett, you’ll see Captain America sling his shield, Thor hurl his hammer…and the Hulk eat hamburgers! Only the men and women of the US military can get this collector’s item issue, and best of all, it’s free!”

The Avengers in “Double Vision” is currently available at Exchanges worldwide.
