Soon, the Fire Department of New York City will celebrate its 150th anniversary. To mark the occasion, it will display and auction off at the local Comic Con 10 bespoke firefighting helmets that look like Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and other Marvel superheroes. The New York Daily News reports:
Created just for New York Comic Con, the superhero helmets were designed by the industry’s top comic book artists, including Joe Quesada, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, Damion Scott, Kaare Andrews and Walt Simonson.
Quesada was also behind “Heroes,” a 2011 comic paying tribute to the victims and heroes of Sept. 11. […]
All proceeds from the sales will go to the FDNY Foundation, which provides awareness and outreach for the public, training and support for the department’s different squads and technology and equipment for stations.
