Pfizer and BioNTech have sponsored a cringeworthy Marvel comic that serves as a vehicle to promote COVID-19 vaccination.
The story opens with a family waiting to get COVID-19 vaccine shots while the Avengers are just blocks away fighting an enemy known as Ultron.
“Ultron keeps coming back–keeps changing and evolving–so the Avengers keep adapting and re-strategizing. And they knock him back again and again!” the grandfather character says.
Later in the story, the grandfather says, “I’ve seen their pattern so many times before. Ultron evolves. The Avengers gather information and take time to innovate and adapt.” He then says that the Avengers “figure out how to fight it, putting together their existing knowledge and research along with the new information they’ve learned!”

“The Avengers are doing their part to help keep us safe. Now it’s time for us to do ours,” the grandfather says as the family heads to get their COVID-19 vaccine jabs.
At the conclusion of the comic, most of the family members can be seen with bandaids on their arms because they have received a COVID-19 vaccine shot.
“Everyday heroes don’t wear capes!” an ad at the end of the sponsored comic declares. “But they do wear a small bandage on their upper arm after they get their latest COVID-19 vaccination—because everyday heroes are concerned about their health. And they’re people who choose to unite with their communities and do their part to help protect against COVID-19.”
Quadruple-jabbed Pfizer chairman and CEO Albert Bourla announced in August that he tested positive for COVID-19 — then in September he announced again that he had tested positive, noting in that statement that he had not yet received the new bivalent booster.
Other prominent vaccine promoters including President Joe Biden and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci have tested positive despite having been fully vaccinated and twice boosted.
