'Marvel Legacy' Changes The Industry… With Homage Covers?

So far, internet still intact…

Source: Various

Marvel  teased yesterday that there would be "industry changing" news related to the Marvel Legacy  initiative announced today. Do you feel that rumble? We don't either. The day's not over, but so far what Marvel has released, in the most annoying way possible, are a bunch of covers to comics that are homages to previous covers. Woo. No creative teams were announced for these titles.

As mentioned, they have done it in the most annoying way possible. Releasing a few to different genre websites (hey, where's our exxxclusives?!) and also in the form of animated gifs. Ugh. Well here they are (the covers being paid tribute to will be listed second)… gets the first salvo. In this bunch, we get the cover to Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, which is a Fantastic Four tribute. Could this be the "Fantastic Three" storyline reported before? Is it related to the "it takes two" tweet as well?
