Marvel’s War Of The Realms Spreads With Series Of Variant Covers

by James Ferguson

It wouldn’t be a big event in the Marvel Universe if we didn’t get some cool variant covers to go along with it. This April, War of the Realms kicks off from the creative team of Jason Aaron, Russell Dauterman, and Matthew Wilson. To celebrate this epic event, Marvel Comics is releasing a series of variant covers that reimagine some of its biggest characters in the style of Asgardian warrirors. Check out the full list below:

I love the images variant covers like these can generate, however I still have a problem with how they’re selected. I’m willing to bet Immortal Hulk #16 will not have anything to do with War of the Realms, so why would we have a variant cover pulling the Hulk into the mix? It just seems odd to me. At the bare minimum, we get some pretty awesome artwork, so I’m content looking through these great images for now.
