The Avengers and X-Men Team Up to Fight Breast Cancer

Marvel Comics had already announced that they would roll out a series of pink variant covers throughout October, with the proceeds to benefit Susan G. Komen For the Cure. Now they've made copies of those variants available for fans to check out (you can see Captain Marvel at right, and the rest below).

“It’s rewarding to see the partnership between Marvel and Susan G. Komen For The Cure produce such exciting art to raise awareness about the risk of breast cancer to both women and men,” said Dan Buckley, Publisher & President of the Print, Animation & Digital Divisions, Marvel Worldwide, Inc. “We hope that all our fans take a moment this month to educate themselves on the ways to fight—and reduce-- this risk of this disease by checking out the free resources Komen has to offer.”

“Komen is thrilled to partner with Marvel Entertainment in the fight against breast cancer this October,” said Dorothy Jones, VP, Marketing at Komen. “This partnership will allow us to share critical information with this important audience, empowering them to take positive action for their breast health and for the women they love.”
