Marvel’s new series U.S. Avengers is launching in January, with the publishing producing 50 unique State variant covers, along with Washington D.C., Canada and Puerto Rico. Check them all out in the gallery here and click on any of the covers for a hi-res version…
“We did extensive research through Marvel’s history to be able to align a particular Avenger with each individual State,” says Tom Brevoort, SVP/Executive Editor. “Beginning with places of birth, and expanding outward to key stories featuring the character in that particular location, we were able to hone in on a specific and unique Avengers character with a connection to each of the fifty States—and more!”
“Marvel’s U.S. Avengers State Variants are a chance for our fans and retailers to show their home town patriotism paired with some of the biggest Avengers from the Marvel Universe,” says SVP Sales & Marketing for Marvel, David Gabriel. “We knew that a series with the name U.S. Avengers would evoke a sense of honor with all of our fans and we really wanted to go that extra step and offer a variant campaign that would allow our readers to show their hometown pride across this great nation.”
This January, the security of the Marvel Universe is fractured. The world’s first line of defense, S.H.I.E.L.D., can no longer be trusted. The United States no longer has a super-spy agency with its best interests at heart – until now. Prepare for the U.S.AVENGERS!
U.S. Avengers #1 is set for release on January 4th.
