Marvel Characters Get ‘Tron’ Treatment

Tuesday, October 19 by

Nerd worlds have officially collided. In anticipation of the release of Disney’s Tron Legacy, Marvel Comics has created variant covers to celebrate just how nerdy nerd things can get. Beginning in November, superheroes Captain America, Spider-man Iron Man, and others will get rave-friendly neon lights added to their attire. If you speak fluent nerd, the issues featuring Tron variants, and spotlighted characters, are as follows:

• AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #651 TRON Variant, featuring Spider-Man
AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant. featuring Spider-Woman
• AVENGERS ACADEMY #7 TRON Variant, featuring Quicksilver
• CAPTAIN AMERICA #612 TRON Variant, featuring Captain America
• INCREDIBLE HULKS #618 TRON Variant, featuring Ghost Rider
• INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #33 TRON Variant, featuring Iron Man
• NEW AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant, featuring Ms. Marvel
• SECRET AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant, featuring Moon Knight
THOR #617 TRON Variant, featurin Thor
WOLVERINE #4 TRON Variant, featuring Wolverine

In all honesty though, these re-interpretations look pretty sweet. I just wish it didn’t feel so whorey. It’s as if each of the above comics should come with a BK Broiler with a cutesy name like the BK Tronoiler. It doesn’t sound the least bit appetizing, but you’d eat it because the pickles glow. Hot damn, I’m a marketing genius. Now to the lab to make pickles glow…
