Some people will complain about ANYTHING. These all look amazing!

I think that should be Quicksilver's new costume.

Um, wow? I don't know what these are about, but they definitly aren't good. No offense, everyone, but these all really suck.

They look great, but are they going to be 50/50 ratios, or some specialty cover that we collectors are going to have to hunt down and pay through the nose for?

It may look gimmicky, but it is a fresh way to look at costume design, and Qucksilver has never looked better. And for those who think Tron was a lame film, I can only say that it was outstanding for its time. Also, for most of us it was the first time we were exposed to words like user, subroutine, and other computer jargon, stuff that's second nature now. The movie really was ahead of its time, much better than Disney's usual fare. I hope the new one does it justice.

Somebody get Activision on the phone and make the Spider-Tron DLC for Shattered Dimensions.

Ghost Rider on the Light Cycle looks fantastic! It is by far the best. Next would be Iron Man, Cap, Spider-Man and maybe Quicksilver, Moonknight and Spider-Woman. Either way, this is pretty awesome. Hopefully though, this is as far as 'Disney Intervention' will ever go.

Yes, its gimmicky, but is this any worse than ape variants, wolverine classic art variants, or iron man variants? Most look cool, although Spider-Woman's chest is a little out there, and Wolverine's looks awful. The rest are actually pretty cool, and I'm ok with this. How about complaints on Disney distributing Iron Man 3 and Avengers!

This is exactly the kind of thing I was worried about when Disney bought Marvel. I really hope we haven't got a bunch of Toy sales lead Marvel movies to look forward to post 2012. Yes some of the covers look awesome but it has the feel of those annoying ads reminders that fill a third of your TV screen whilst you're trying to watch one show and have no interest in missing out on the full picture too be told some other show is on soon. Bah & humbug.. Shenanigans

I would like to see some villain variants. I think Doc Doom, Magneto and Ultron would be best.

Moon Knight and Ghost Rider look great. They rest are too gimmicky. Which of course is what this is all about.

The whole Tron theme fits for GR, Captain America, Moon Knight, Ms Marvel,Iron Man & Quicksilver the others looks awkward

TRON was really a sucky movie, but still it had something that makes you think about it. The concept was very clever.

Tron was great for it's time... the new movie is gonna be even greater and these sweet variant covers are awesome!!! Just hope they aren't like 1/100...

Those are some really awesome Varient covers. Spider-Man's is very fitting because of the new costume he will be getting at the end of the year. While I look at these covers, I'm thinking of the 2099 music from the Spider-Man:Shattered dimmension game.
