Sometimes the bad guy isn't Dr. Doom or the Red Skull. Sometimes the bad guy is the neighborhood bully...

That's why in the new comic - Avengers: No More Bullying - the Earth's mightiest heroes, The Avengers, have a new and vital mission; making bullying a thing of the past! The superhero alliance have always stood up for those who cannot stand up for themselves, but this time we're in for an awesome full-length adventure in which the superheroes find that even they don't have adequate defenses against being picked on.

Featuring the Avengers, Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, the new comic explores how even some of the most powerful superheroes are not immune to being bullied. Devil Lewis, editor of the comic, commented:

I can't delve too much into the plot, but thematically we're going to be exploring what causes someone to be a bully, how bullying affects a community, and how bullying can take on a number of forms... We're also going to explore conflict resolution, and how, when dealing with a bully, fists should be a last resort.

With October being National Bullying Prevention Month, Marvel Comics hopes to raise awareness of the issue with the release of the 40-page comic book. Earlier this month, Marvel also released a series of variant covers on some of its most popular titles, displaying the heroes preventing acts of bullying, protecting victims, or consoling them, in an effort to raise awareness of bullying. Take a look:

*Holds out variant covers, then lifts them up out of your reach when you try to grab them.*

Only kidding. Here you go:

WHAT BULLY IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD PICK ON A KID WHO'S BUDDIES WITH THE INCREDIBLE HULK? Don't make Hulk angry. You won’t like him when he's angry.

I love this one because it just feels so natural. I'm going to have to get it framed for m̶y̶ ̶b̶e̶d̶r̶o̶o̶m̶ my 11-year-old nephew's bedroom.
