Marvel Comics Can’t Get Enough Of Heroes Fighting Heroes With New ‘Divided We Stand’ Variant Covers


Marvel's mega-event Civil War II is still ongoing and heroes are still fighting heroes, but if you're hoping for a respite after the final issue we've got some bad news for you. Civil War II is set to be followed up by the line-wide "Divided We Stand" banner, which will see the Marvel Universe more fractured than ever, and to really drive the point home, Marvel has announced a line of Divided We Stand variant covers and unveiled the first seven featuring art by Butch Guice, Pasqual Ferry and more.

Marvel’s ‘Mighty Men’ Variant Covers Are Lukewarm Beefcake At Best


Marvel unveiled its July variant cover theme at C2E2 this past weekend, and the pictures definitely tell a story. As a follow-up to March's "Women of Power" covers, which highlighted the strength of Marvel's heroic women, the July covers are dubbed "Mighty Men of Marvel." While "covers with men on them" might seem like an unremarkable theme, given that it describes most Marvel covers already, it's clear from the art released thus far that the concept was meant to be more bold than that --- but it's equally clear that Marvel missed its target.

Slightly Imperfect Past Hulk Event ‘Future Imperfect’ To Return Perhaps Less Imperfectly In The Future (Imperfect)


One of the more memorable Hulk stories in the character's long history, Peter David and George Pérez's Future Imperfect tale from 1993 saw the Hulk transported nearly 100 years into an imperfect dystopian future ruled by an even more powerful version of himself called, amazingly, the Masetro, and in complete command of his distinctly non-savage, less imperfect Bruce Banner mind.

in 2015, Marvel readers will be transported back to that alternate, imperfect future where there is only Hulk as part of what we are increasingly believing to be a dimension of Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic's Secret Wars -- itself a callback of sorts to a famous if imperfect storyline of Marvel's past, whose possibly imperfect future arrival has been heralded by a torrent of teasers referencing other similarly momentous if imperfect events of the past.

This teaser, provided exclusively to ComicsAlliance, was drawn by Dale Keown, one of very few Hulk artists whose visions of the green goliath could be described as definitive.

Angel Hits On Angela and Drax and Iceman Do Some Male Bonding In Dale Keown’s ‘Trial Of Jean Grey’ Variants

Trial of Jean Grey Angel Angela Dale Keown

Coming off the "Battle of the Atom" storyline, the All New X-Men are entering "The Trial of Jean Grey." A crossover between Guardians of the Galaxy and All-New X-Men, the story features the original X-Men, brought into the present from the past, dealing with an alien race that has decided to put Jean Grey on trial for the crimes of the Phoenix, which she has yet to commit in her own timeline.

For the variant covers to the series, Marvel has enlisted veteran artist Dale Keown. Perhaps best known for his work on The Incredible Hulk in the early '90s, Keown is not quite as prolific with interior comics art as he once was, but he's still occasionally producing cover work for Marvel, in addition to his creator-owned comics. For this series, Keown has produced variants for each issue -- taking place in All New X-Men #22-24 and Guardians of the Galaxy #11-13 -- with each piece spotlighting a member of each team. And, yes, Angel and Angela are paired up, because of course they are.

You can check out the first five covers, courtesy of Marvel, below.
