16 Mighty Men Of Marvel Comics Variant Covers That Never Were?

STL017935

Back at C2E2, Marvel Comics got plenty of press for announcing a line of variant covers for July, the Mighty Men Of Marvel, a tongue in cheek attempt to make up for some of the cheesecake over the years.

Except… despite announcing the covers and which issues they would be variants for, the line never happened. and they never told anyone.

I just noticed that the David Lopez cover intended for Mighty Thor #9 is listed for the upcoming Vote Loki #4, on FOC this week.

So the question is… where did the others turn up?  I found another by Fiona Staples on Civil War II: The Accused. Any more for any more? Tell me and I'll update…

Marvel representatives did not respond to inquiries made yesterday.
