This completely invalidates any kind of emotional resonance the story might have. These covers are dumb.

Skottie Young is a genius. One of the most entertaining and talented cartoonists since Bill Watterson. Marvel is lucky to have him on board, and as a retailer, I love lining up all these covers on a wall ;)

Heck, even his recent DEATHSTROKE cover was pretty wicked...though not even Justin Jordan's writing can make me care all that much about the New 52 :/

Would've like to have seen a lil' Luke Cage on that cover though...he's apparently a key player in AOU

how is THIS not an animated series a la muppet babies? this would be way cooler than SHS(maybe. i don't know i don't watch it)

That appears to be Cage under lil' Thing. Not sure why he's nekkid.

Not everyone is smitten with Skottie Young. Marvel, please stop hiring this guy, or at least add variant covers with the stick figures I draw.

Pretty sure that's the human torch under the thing. He's got a flame head and is orange

brings back memories of the muppet babies & x-men babies from years ago.
