Sometimes it seems like we honor comic book heroes more than we do real life heroes. The FDNY has 150 years of heroism behind it, and to commemorate their anniversary, Marvel has teamed up with New York Comic Con to auction off ten special Marvel firefighter helmets. This is your chance to honor some real heroes, and support a good cause.
The helmets were created specially for NYCC and were designed by the people who know heroes best – the Marvel comic book artists themselves. The helmets include some of our favorite heroes like Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Spider-Man, and The Hulk.
Proceeds will go to the FDNY Foundation, which provides community awareness and outreach, training, support, technology, and equipment to the FDNY. It is certainly a worthy cause and you are getting an awesome one of a kind collectible item too.
The helmets will be on display in NYCC’s Artist Alley from Thursday 10/8 to Sunday 10/11. The auction starts at 6:30 p.m. EST on Saturday 10/10.
