Marvel to Print 53 State Birds Variant for Uncanny X-Men #1

Marvel trolls DC comics with a Deadpool variant cover again. Awesome.



Source: Press Release

Back in 2010, which, in internet time, is like a lifetime ago, Marvel trolled DC Comics by offering a special Deadpool variant cover for any comic shop that mailed Marvel unsold copies of DC's Blackest Night comics, which themselves were sold to shops on an incentive based cheap plastic ring promotion. Today, in response to DC's announcement of 52 state flag variant covers for Justice League of America #1, Marvel is at it again, this time offering a 53 state birds variant cover for a Uncanny X-Men #1, featuring Deadpool.

Yes, you read it right. Unlike DC's JLA variants, all 53 state birds will be on one cover. And the cover, though for Uncanny X-Men, will feture Deadpool.

That's all the backstory you need, and since Marvel was kind enough to mock DC with this entire deal, we don't even need to add any jokes, so here's the press release:

Deadpool Gets Patriotic In UNCANNY X-MEN #1 53 STATE BIRDS VARIANT!

Marvel NOW! brings readers Deadpool, the most patriotic and educational new comic book series of the century! Providing readers with a completely (not) 100% accurate depiction of American history, the most famous presidents and their very real modern day exploits as zombies, there’s no X-Man more perfect than Deadpool for the most American variant cover of all. Marvel is pleased to unveil the Uncanny X-Men #1 53 State Birds Variant, by superstar artist Stuart Immonen, bringing all 52 state (and territories) birds (+1)* to life on one cover. That’s like 52 (+1)* state variants for the price of one! Calling all bird watchers, this one of a kind variant featuring all of America’s greatest feathered patrons is a must have for any fan!

“Ornithology is one of America’s greatest past times,” mentioned Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “With Inauguration day and Spring just around the corner – we could think of no better way than to celebrate our history with a beaked representative from every state including Puerto Rico and then some!”

This February, Cyclops is back in full force in Uncanny X-Men #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Chris Bachalo! In the wake of the Phoenix, the world has changed and is torn on exactly what Cyclops and his team of X-Men are – visionary revolutionaries or dangerous terrorists? Whatever the truth, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto, and Magik are out in the world gathering up new mutants and redefining the name Uncanny X-Men.

“Retailers will have the unique opportunity to collect all the various birds of the United States on one cover,” explained Marvel SVP of Sales, David Gabriel. “No need to worry about purchasing individual covers to get all 53 beautiful birds. One cover. 53! Birds!”

So what are you waiting for? Put on your red, white & blues while pulling out those binoculars and reserve the Uncanny X-Men #1 53 State Birds Variant at your local comic shop today!

Is it bad that this cover makes more sense then Justice League of America's 52 State Flag covers?

Pity the cover will be the only thing good thing about the book. It'll still be Bendis and Bachalo inside.

That's a sweet cover, but similar to Lord Ice's sentiments, I'd rather have the inside be full of bird turds than have the normal comic book pages.

Apparently DC's marketing scheme paid off as JLA #1 sold more than 307,000 copies to the direct market :shock: :lol:

Uncanny X-Men #1 sold 177,463.

In comparison, Amazing Spider-Ock #700, which came out 1 month before, sold 200,900

My store has stacks of JLA on the racks, mostly of states no one wants. . like New Jersey or Ohio. :P
