PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I know that I’ve often said how I don’t really like to purchase the assorted variant covers but this one I might have to make an exception for because it is absolutely amazing. To think that an artist can manage to do a piece that features a full “700” characters is just mind-blowing. I know that I can likely name a couple of hundred of the characters featured in this piece but definitely not the full 700 so I hope Marvel Comics or Mr. Koblish released the full rundown since its surely something the Geek Republic would be interested in being able to know more about. Wrapping this announcement up I wonder what you all think about the reveal of this amazing cover. Please chime in down below in the comments and let us know what you think about it. I’ll see you again soon, please keep safe out there.
