Last week Marvel gave fans the opportunity to shape the future of the X-Men by selecting one of the members for the new team. Voting and campaigning were fierce, and with the vote having ended at midnight last night, all that’s left is to await the announcement of the winner. Said winner will be announced this summer during the upcoming Hellfire Gala X-event, and now Marvel is inviting one lucky fan to attend the event ‘in-person.’ For the next week, readers and fans who are members of the Marvel Insider program can redeem points to enter for a chance to be drawn into the event.
The Marvel Insider program is free to join, and gives members rewards points for activities like logging into Marvel.com every day, redeeming digital comics codes, and playing games, among other things. Marvel Insider members can redeem 2,500 points in order to enter the contest to be drawn into the Hellfire Gala.
The sweepstakes is a clever way to drive fan engagement to Marvel’s website, and the 2,500 point ‘price tag’ (Marvel offers plenty of free opportunities to earn points on the site) is low enough that it shouldn’t discourage new people from joining the program so they can enter. Check out the full text of Marvel’s announcement for the Hellfire Gala contest below, or click here to enter the sweepstakes. Entries are open through Sunday, February 14th.
