When Disney purchased Marvel everyone thought of the ways the Mouse would incorporate and promote Marvel characters but few thought of the flip side. One of the first examples is yet another piece of TRON: Legacy marketing (and there has been a lot). Several of Marvel’s most popular comic book characters – Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, etc – are set to be “TRON-ified” on variant covers of upcoming issues. After the break, we’ve got all the covers as well as which issues you need to buy and their release dates.

Here is a gallery of all the covers:

This reminds me of the days of old where comics like X-Men #1 had like 10 variant covers and I collected all of them under the illusion that they’d be worth anything. Will you try and collect all of these?
