Where were you when you first heard the phrase “I am Groot?” or thrilled to a very young Malekith’s early attempts at taking over the universe? Do you remember how you felt when Scott Lang made fun of a mango fruit blast for the very first time?
Yes those were the heady, heady days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Two, a simpler time of love, laughter and The Winter Soldier. Long before the snap destroyed half the life in the universe. And Marvel is celebrating these olden days with a series of tribute covers in March, 2022!
Following November’s INFINITY SAGA PHASE 1 VARIANTS come six brand-new covers paying homage to Phase 2 of the MCU’s Infinity Saga. Adorning upcoming issues of your favorite comic book series, the INFINITY SAGA PHASE 2 VARIANT COVERS will depict the characters and moments from this second era of legendary MCU films.
Alexander Lozano showcases Tony Stark’s epic arsenal of armors as seen in Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3, Ryan Stegman delivers an electrifying illustration of Thor’s battle with Malekith from Marvel Studios’ Thor: The Dark World, Declan Shalvey captures the explosive energy of Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Skan revisits the first outing of the Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Valerio Schiti depicts the epic showdown between the Avengers and Ultron from Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Age of Ultron, and David Nakayama puts his spin on the small-scale showdown between Ant-Man and Yellowjacket from Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man!
Somehow, we weren’t on hand to write about that even more poignant MCU Phase One nostalgia, but we are fully on board for this! And the covers are nice, too.
