This is the solicited cover to Powers Of X #3, published by Marvel Comics tomorrow, up against Superman: Year One #2 and Batman #77 for the bestselling book of the week. But here’s something that might give it a little nudge…
The comic will be getting a secret variant cover, which has just been spotted by an eagle-eyed comic book retailer.
This is the standard cover.
And this is the variant cover. Solicited as the regular cover.
With Illyana Rasputin and Nightcrawler being replaced by chimera mutants of a hundred years hence, Rasputin and Cardinal. How does this refer to the comic book itself? Haven’t a clue. Maybe we will tomorrow. And no, I don’t know the ration of standard cover to secret variant cover but these are usually around one in ten…
POWERS OF X #3 (OF 6)
(W) Jonathan Hickman (A/CA) R. B. Silva
As Xavier sows the seeds of the past, the X-Men’s future blossoms into trouble for all mutantdom. Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (NEW AVENGERS, INFINITY, FF) continues reshaping the X-Men’s past, present and future with breakout artist R.B. Silva (UNCANNY X-MEN)!
