Captain America has fought a lot of evil villains over the years, but his most recent fight is not with a diabolical person. In the new comic book Captain America battles suicide.
When a man is on the brink of committing suicide, Captain America swoops in and helps him break out of that state of mind.
Said Tom Brevoort, Senior Vice-President of Publishing:
“Superheroes fight a lot of battles, but there are few more important than combating suicide. That’s why we’re making Captain America: A Little Help available for free via our digital comics outlets. If even one person calls this number instead of doing something very tragic, we know that means we succeeded.”
We love this idea! It can be hard to get through to someone who is contemplating suicide — this is a great way to go about it!!
