Marvel announced the most unexpected partnership Friday at New York Comic Con, with the real-life Stark Industries, Northrop Grumman. That's right. Marvel partnered with the fifth-largest defense contractor in the world and manufacturer of the B-2 Spirit, a stealth bomber that Northrop made for the US government that dropped bombs over Kosovo and the Middle East.
The partnership has birthed a comic titled Start Your N.G.E.N.S! Part 1. Get it? Because it sounds like "engines" and it stands for Northrop Grumman Elite Nexus? The book stars a new team of heroes who work for Northrop Grumman who meet up with The Avengers.
Best of all is that the comic is rated All-Ages, meaning your child too can now be tricked into being complacent with the military-industrial complex too.
