Have you ever wanted to be a real hero? Only a few days are left in DC Comics’ We Can Be Heroes fundraising campaign, which has already raised over $120,000 to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa. Donate now to be a superhero to thousands of people in Africa, where your money will go toward medicine, care, food, and even a mobile health unit to provide support.

DC Comics is offering special rewards for donors. Rewards for supporting the cause range from a special variant cover of Batman/Superman #1 drawn by Jim Lee, to high-end perks like tickets to a special DC Comics San Diego Comic-Con event or a meet and greet with Geoff Johns and Gary Frank. An exclusive showing of this summer’s Man of Steel has already sold out – in less than two hours — as comic book fans turn their enthusiasm toward a good cause.

DC Comics invites you to be a member of the Justice League to fight the hunger crisis. The fundraising campaign lasts until May 9, 2013, and you can visit the We Can Be Heroes web site for more information.
