Iron Man tackles Childhood Diabetes

November 20th, 2014 by Marc Comments


As someone who suffers from Type-1 diabetes, this is a great idea and something that will help kids deal with something that can be troublesome to say the least.

“Siemens Healthcare and Marvel Custom Solutions have partnered for Iron Man: Early Warnings, an eight-page comic in which Daisy and her elementary-school classmates visit Stark Industries, where Tony Stark unveils the prototype for his newest invention: the Heath-Y-Meter, a device that glows brightest when the wearer’s body is at its healthiest.

“Created by David Liss, Kev Sharpe, Walden Wong and Chris Sotomayor, the comic is part of Siemens’ “Become a Diabetes Hero” limited-edition information kit, which also includes coloring pages for young patients, an information pamphlet and a program poster for display in physicians’ exam rooms.”

Fun and informative… it’s hard to argue with that.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot.
