Illustrated by Leonel Castellani, the first two are based on iconic covers created by Jim Steranko and Frank Miller, respectively, while the latter is an homage to David Aja’s cover for last year’s Hawkeye #2, the second issue of the Eisner-nominated series.
In total, 21 different Marvel titles will come with Lego variants, and the publisher will likely reveal more in the coming weeks.
