The fast food chain is giving out four new Marvel comic book stories for a limited time. Your kids (or, you know, you) can collect the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man and Avengers comics. Each issue also includes a one-page story by Gingerbread Girl artist Colleen Coover.

All four books were edited by Nate Cosby and the creative teams are as follows: Iron Man Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener, Fantastic Four Paul Tobin and Craig Rousseau, Avengers Joe Caramanga and Derec Donovan, X-Men Alex Zalben and Tom Grummett.

Apparently the X-Men story features the classic Xavier school and Nightcrawler! Also, although Jean Grey and Banshee are featured on the cover, they are not in the book itself. I have also been told that you may be able to purchase the comics at $1 a pop if you arent inclined to eat there.

Anyone think itd be more appropriate for Subway or Blimpie to distribute stuff involving heroes?

More appropriate?  Absolutely not.  There is nothing wrong with a business offering prizes as an incentive to customers.  If a parent doesn't want their kids to eat that junk it is up to them to say "No".  We are, after all, the adults.

I like that Marvel is doing the campaign in general.  We need a new generation to become passionate about comics to keep them going.
