Earlier this month, Marvel released a book titled X-Men: Hellfire Gala, and there were two cameos. One of those is Iron Maiden mascot Eddie, the other being comedian Brian Posehn. Both the Iron Maiden Twitter account and Posehn tweeted about their special cameos within this latest X-Men book. Per Iron Maiden, they wrote:
“EDDIE??! Look who showed up at @Marvel‘s biggest night for mutantkind! Check out Eddie’s guest appearance in ‘X-Men: Hellfire Gala’ #1, out now at your local comic book shop. #XMenHellfireGala#IronMaiden #Marvel #Eddie #Comic #Xmen”
Posehn retweet’d Maiden and wrote: “Um, this is crazy. My huge ass just chillin’ with ‘Trooper’ Eddie at a Hellfire Gala. @IronMaiden and @Marvel had a crazy impact on my life. And now this panel exists. Thanks to all involved and @GerryDuggan.”
Marvel Comics and Iron Maiden make a great team. Several other metal bands and artists have been involved with comics, like GWAR, Rob Zombie, Spiritbox, and more.
