New Avengers Comic Book Teaches Budgeting

Just in time for tomorrow’s release of the new Avengers movie, Visa and Marvel have teamed up to offer a new financial education comic book called the “Avengers: Saving the Day.”

In the comic, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Hulk, and the rest of the supporting cast battle their enemies but also learn about personal finance and money skills.

“This may surprise you,” Iron man says to his fellow superheroes while dispatching evil, “but everyone – even the wealthy and big companies – need to create and follow budgets. Otherwise, they can get into financial trouble.”
