Marvel Comics has released Stuart Immonen's variant cover for "AVX VS" #1 written by Jason Aaron and Kathryn Immonen with art by Adam Kubert and Stuart Immonen. Immonen's cover is modeled after a retro boxing marquee poster featuring the headlining fight of " The Plate-Armored Playboy" Iron Man versus "The Metal Manipulator" Magneto with a secondary match of the Thing versus Namor.
"In a nutshell, as we've said in the past, in 'Avengers vs. X-Men,' we're only doing tie-ins in our core Avengers and X-Men titles," Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort said during the initial "AVX VS" announcement. "'AvX: Versus' is the least essential read of 'AvX,' but it will probably be the most bestselling. It is literally the fight book."
In addition to "AVX: VS" #1, Immonen will also provide interior art for the Marvel Infinite Comics digital "AvX" tie-in written by Mark Waid that features the new Nova following the events of "Marvel Point One."
Check out Immonen's variant and the solicitation info below.
