Marvel's 'Avengers AI' Gets 8-bit Mega Man Inspired Variant Cover
So this is pretty neat.
Matthew Waite’s variant for the first issue of Avengers AI is a direct homage to classic 8-bit Mega Man sprites (with a Contra background, no less). Revealed on the official Marvel Tumblr, the cover depicts The Avengers -- striking a few familiar poses -- in a heated bout with Ultron robots. Click here to see the full piece.
Given the popularity of theme variant covers, Comic Book Resources speculates more 8-bit homages could be coming down the pike. Hey, no complaints here!
