"Working with the folks at The LEGO Group to do these homage covers is an absolute blast! As soon as we came up with the concept of doing the covers, I couldn't wait to get an idea off the ground that really does justice to both the Marvel heroes and the LEGO brand,” explained David Gabriel, SVP of Sales, Print & Digital. “This program is the best blend of both worlds and we know it will really excite our fans and hope that Lego fans also find their way into comic shops to pick these up!”

"The LEGO variant covers complement the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes construction toy collection, which brings the characters, vehicles and action of Marvel’s renowned universe to the world of LEGO build-and-play adventure. There are currently eleven iconic scenes from the Avengers, Iron Man and Spider -Man franchises available including construction sets tied to Marvel’s Iron Man 3 feature film. The covers also celebrate the new LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes videogame which will be available beginning Fall 2013 and is the first instalment in the highly successful LEGO videogame franchise to feature a breadth of famous characters from the Marvel Comics Universe. 
To celebrate this Marvel Team-Up, Marvel has pored through the vaults and selected the best images for artists Leo Castellani, Christopher Jones and Adam DeKracker to bring you a set of covers that will be forever awesome in your collection! Be sure to head on over to your local comic shop immediately and tell your retailers which one you want because all of these limited LEGO Variant covers are going to go fast! 
Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on these hotly anticipated variant covers as the fan interest in the months to come can only increase. No fan will want to miss the chance to see their favorite Marvel heroes in a whole new light when the LEGO Variants hit store shelves worldwide!"
