Kathmandu- Iron Maiden’s talismanic mascot shows his skeletal face in the first issue of X-Men: Hellfire Gala
iconic and world-famous mascot Eddie makes a surprise cameo appearance in a new Marvel comic.
The mascot-formerly-known-as-Eddie The Head pops up the first issue of in the first issue of X-Men: Hellfire Gala, which with its reference to the “biggest night for mutantkind” may just be a cute Marvel tweak on the idea of the Met Gala aka “fashion’s biggest night out”, held annually as a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

In the comic, Eddie is seen in conversation with metalhead comic Brian Posehn, who, judging my a recent tweet, has had his mind blown to be keeping such esteemed company.

After Iron Maiden’s social media accounts tweeted about Eddie’s guest appearance, the Californian comedian retweeted the post, and wrote “Um, this is crazy. My huge ass just chillin’ with “Trooper” Eddie at a Hellfire Gala. Iron Maiden and Marvel had a crazy impact on my life. And now this panel exists. Thanks to all involved and [X-Men writer] Gerry Duggan.”
