Black History Month is here, and Marvel HQ on Youtube is marking the occasion with a “thrilling collection of animated videos highlight(ing) heroes of African descent that have long been an integral part of the Marvel universe.” The robust collection includes “Black Panther and Shuri in the two-time NAACP Image Award-nominated season of Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest, Miles Morales in the hugely popular Marvel Super Hero Adventures shorts, and Patriot and Ironheart in Marvel Rising.”
Additionally, from February 12th through February 19th, the “Best of Avengers” takeover will allow fans to view full episodes of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble featuring the Avengers versus Thanos.
Finally, for Marvel action figure fans, a new animated short from Marvel and Hasbro’s Bend & Flex called “Shield of Screams” premieres February 21st.
That also happens to be my birthday, so if anyone wants to get their favorite comic book journalist/critic a Marvel-ous gift, I love Daredevil, Magneto, and 70s Jack Kirby. Oh, and cash is good too.
Just saying! Anyway… here’s the press release:
