Titan Comics Turn Their Marvel-Baiting 'Fighting American' Meme Into A Variant Cover

On the fourth of July, Bleeding Cool pointed out Titan Comics' baiting of Marvel for the launch of Fighting American #1, with their "No Secrets, No Empires" message, very much resonating with some fans disdain with the direction Captain America had taken, revealed as a sleeper agent for Hydra and mounting a fascist overthrow of the United States. And also not being respectful with his Twitter account. Well, it looks like it has gone further.

It seemed to get enough play that Titan Comics has now decided to turn it into an actual variant cover for Fighting American #1 when it is published on October 11th, as the comic approaches its Final Order Cut-Off date.
