Marvel Makes Strong Bid for Stupidest Cover of the Year Award

Marvel Makes Strong Bid for Stupidest Cover of the Year Award

The company has released a variant featuring Deadpool in a banana costume on the cover of a predominantly black Avengers team.



Source: Bleeding Cool

Mighty Avengers is the upcoming Marvel series featuring a cast of predominantly black superheroes. Comics Alliance declared the series to be a step forward for Marvel, who has had editors gone on record stating that they found the idea of black superhero teams to be "contrived". 

This is the Party Variant cover for Mighty Avengers #1.


That's an...ill-placed use of a banana costume. 

On a related note, it appears the URL www.HasMarvelDoneSomethingStupidToday.com is still available.

Wow. It's conceptually and artistically stupid at the same time. So I'm sure the Mighty Marvel Manchildren will be checking their diapers for that loose change they swallowed to pay inflated prices for it.
