A short one-shot sponsored by BGE (Baltimore Energy Company) featuring Iron Man and the Natural gas Safety hero Captain Mercaptain.

Super heroes are all about saving the world and keeping people safe, so a book written to educate kids about proper natural gas leak safety seams like a perfect fit.

This book is a cute little story about a tour through Stark Industry’s newest lab, and what to do when a gas leak erupts. It’s just educational enough to be a bit boring, and the moral of the story is little more than a gas safety pamphlet for children, but it’s cute to see Tony on roller blades.

Great for kids and uber-collectors alike, there’s not too much here to recommend or not. If you have to every issue ever, here’s one more to sit on your shelf. If you need to teach a child how to be safe around potentially deadly gas leaks, this is all you need. Not much here for anyone else though.
