In a promotion for the upcoming Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers miniseries, Marvel is asking you to send them pictures of your pet dressed up as one of their superheroes (or villains). Selected pets “may be featured as Lockjaw’s newest ally online!”
When I first heard about this, I thought they’d be drawing the costumed pets into the comic, the way people used to be able to create heroes for Dial H for Hero. That would be way cool.
This week, Marvel is also posting stories featuring animals from such titles as Captain America and Fantastic Four.
Lockjaw & the Pet Avengers #1 (of 4) will be on sale May 13 (but orders are due from retailers within a week or two, which is why the promotion is happening now). Other characters featured include the bird Redwing, Hairball (I’m assuming the cat), the dragon Lockheed, and my favorite, Frog Thor.
