Avengers assemble in Luke exchange

Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Hulk and Black Widow are all making their way to military installations around the world, including the Luke Air Force Base Exchange, 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 in a desperate battle with the high-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 here at Luke,” said Pete Alaniz, exchange general manager. “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 Bill Rosemann, editor. “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 U.S. military can get this collector’s item issue, and best of all, it’s free.”

The Avengers in “Double Vision” is currently available exclusively at the Luke exchange.
