Once again, the United States must rely on patriotic super hero Captain America and his allies to save the country from impending doom in the latest military – exclusive†comic book from Marvel, available for free at the Edwards AFB Exchange.

Written by William Harms with art by Tom Grummett, “Divide and Conquer” is the 17th†military-exclusive edition from Marvel since 2005.

In the action-packed adventure, Captain America stealthily infiltrates a massive A.I.M. facility on a volcanic island near Antarctica. There he learns the evil super-genius M.O.D.O.K. plans to† unleash a force of indestructible robots created from the secret metallic alloy of Captain†America’s own shield. To stop this catastrophic attack, Captain America teams up with the high – flying Falcon, the quick-striking Black Widow, and two elite squads of U.S. Army Rangers to put a† stop to the threat. But, can this hard-hitting dream team stop the malicious villain before it’s too late?

“If you couldn’t get enough of Cap, Falcon and Black Widow in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter†Soldier, this all-new adventure is crafted just for you,” said Marvel Custom Solutions Creative Director Bill Rosemann. “Everyone at Marvel is honored to have the opportunity to create new†stories just for the brave men and women in the Armed Forces, so we packed every page with all the action, drama, humor, and surprises you’ve come to expect from Marvel. And just to show you how much we want to entertain and impress you and your families, we hired legendary artist Mark Bagley to draw the cover! And don’t forget, it’s an exclusive military-only edition; talk about an instant collector’s item!”

“The Exchange always looks forward to partnering with Marvel to bring exclusive comics to military shoppers,” said the Edwards Air Force Base General Manager Mike Wiles. “As always, the free comics†will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis, so we encourage you to pick one up as soon as possible at the Edwards Air Force Base Exchange.”

One million issues of Marvel’s “Divide and Conquer” were distributed to Exchange locations worldwide.
