Iron Man and DJI Phantom in a Marvel Comic

Iron Man and DJI Phantom

Sometimes even Tony Stark needs a little help. I am, however, just a little surprised that with his unlimited budget and all of the technology at his disposal, help comes in the form of a DJI Phantom. If you are curious how a DJI Phantom ends up with a supporting role in an Iron Man comic, the answer is simple. While this may not be common knowledge, Marvel comics offers Marvel Custom Solutions services, a marketing program that uses Marvel characters and custom comic books to push products for major brands. Since this is a custom marketing product, don’t expect to find it at your local comic book shop. Print versions were briefly available on the DJI Boat at Comic-con. I’m assuming these will eventually become collectors items.

In the comic, we see a journalist equipped with a DJI Phantom use the quadcopter to alert Iron Man to impending danger at the fictional Roxxon Labs. M.O.D.O.K. manages to escape Iron Man through a dangerous portal, so the brainiacs at Roxxon Labs decide to send the Phantom drone through the portal to find him.

The comic is called “Remote Possibilities #1,” and was created as part of the Marvel Custom Solutions service. That program is a marketing outlet that designs advertising campaigns by creating custom comic books for brands like DJI, Adobe, Lexus and many more.
