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’ fifteenth free, military-exclusive comic book, available only at Army & Air Force Exchange Service locations worldwide.

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 U.S. 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, is the first Iron Man title in the series, which began in 2005. One million comics were distributed to Exchanges worldwide.
“We are excited to bring the fifteenth military-exclusive Marvel comic book to service members and military families worldwide,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Adviser Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “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.”

“A one hundred foot tall, rampaging dragon! Not one but two armored heroes! This one has it all!”
said Marvel Custom Solutions Editor Bill Rosemann. “Everyone here at Marvel truly appreciates the men and women of the US military, so we pulled out all the stops to top ourselves and deliver an action-packed adventure starring the world’s most popular movie star! Who will win the Battle for Seattle? Stop into your local Exchange and find out!”

Leaders: the good, bad, and forgotten

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas–It’s been my Air Force experience there are three categories of leaders- the Good, the Bad, and the Forgotten. Everyone reading this probably thinks they’re in the first category, but we know that’s not the case. Airmen who work for you certainly wish that were true, but not every leader’s an...
