Teaming up for a good cause, Marvel Entertainment and Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) aim to highlight real-life heroes like veterans, caregivers, and WWP supporters with the use of a digital series called Marvel Make Me A Hero.
The recent episode of the weekly digital series, which premiered on Friday, August 6th, is available on Marvel.com and their YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts. Without giving away too much, the new episode is about Miki, a Marine and Purple Heart recipient becoming the superhero he always dreamed of becoming. (The drawing by Logan Lubera of Miki is located on the right.)
Marvel Make Me A Hero: Real Heroes series was recently honored with a 2021 Webby Award that honored essential workers during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, like registered nurses, volunteer EMS workers, doctors, teachers, postal workers, and service animals.
Beginning in 2003, Wounded Warrior Project has been making sure wounded veterans get the help they need, as well as their families, and more. Thanks to the kindness of the American public, the money donated helps with programs, events, and services to make sure the help never goes away. As for the Marvel Make Me A Hero series, it launched back in 2018. The series wants everyone to bring their ‘superheroes’ to life, while an artist at Marvel will transform those with the power of art.
Overall, this partnership by both Marvel Entertainment and WWP is great to see because honoring and helping real-life heroes is always the right thing to do. So, make sure to check out this digital series if you have not already and do visit WWP to learn more on how to help our wounded heroes.
