I’ll tell you why: Because the world is a sad, cruel place. But at least Marvel is willing to offer us a look at what might have been, in their series of Gwen-themed variant comic covers. Agwengers, Assemble!
Last month Marvel unveiled their Gwen Stacy variant cover theme, set to come in effect in June across twenty different comic covers. We’ve already seen Gwen become the Ingwenible Hulk, Gwenverine and Doctor Gwenge — but now MTV have revealed another batch of covers, including the glorious mashup above with Gwen taking on the role of every Avenger. Or, more accurately, the Avengers team from the MCU — Captain Agwenica, Iron Gwen, Ingwenible Hulk, Gweneye, Black Gwendow, Thor, Gwen of Thunder, and Gwenolas J. Fury. Oh god, the Gwen portmanteaus, they keep getting worse!
The Agwengers, drawn by Chris Samnee, will grace the cover of Secret Wars #4. Check out the full cover below, including Kris Anka’s variant for Thors #1, Declan Shalvey’s for Magneto #19, and Ryan Stegman’s for X-Men ‘92 #1:
I’ll reiterate my previous thoughts on this: There’s still time, Marvel. Secret Wars is still happening. Give me the alternate universe occupied solely by a legion of Gwen Stacys as every Marvel superhero. Please.
