Ready or not, War of the Realms is coming to the Marvel universe — and fast. Starting in April, this massive event will shake up everything, spearheaded by award-winning creative team Jason Aaron, Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson. On Thursday, Marvel released two new War of the Realms #1 variant covers and to no one’s surprise, they are super dramatic. Collectors, get your wallets ready!
These new variants by Adi Granov and Ron Lim (with colors by Israel Silva) join several other previously-announced variants. Granov’s spotlights Angela, Spider-Gwen and the Hulk; Lim’s features Hawkeye, Captain America, Black Panther and Beta Ray Bill fighting Mangog.
Take a look at the new War of the Realms #1 variant covers below. The six-issue series hits shelves this April, though ongoing titles will lay immediate groundwork as early as next month.
