Heavy metal powerhouse Iron Maiden has teamed up with publishing powerhouse Marvel for a new line of merchandise. The line of course combines Iron Maiden's classic Eddie character with a few Marvel characters in a handful of pretty cool designs.
"Eddie has long stood shoulder to shoulder with the greatest super-heroes and we're also pretty proud of the Worlds we created for his many incarnations – from battlefields to Egyptian tombs to frozen icescapes or futuristic cities," said Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood. "Juxtaposing some of the most recognizable characters in pop art & comic book culture into planet Maiden has been an ambition of ours for years and working with Marvel and their unparalleled character-based IP is the perfect fit in this day & age.
"To see such iconic characters alongside Eddie is something our fans have discussed for years and we think that the twist of placing Venom, Thanos, Thor or Deadpool in our Maiden worlds will excite fans of both cultures."
