The age of heroes returns to the once bleak Marvel Universe. Although not officially part of the poster children in the ads, it can't be the same Age of Heroes without this individual. Newsarama has the alternative cover.

Image analysis and comparison's behind the cut





*squee*

I like how the art captures both her youth, her vitality and maturity. Not some porno bimbo, but an adventurer. (...waits for it....)

Its the return that doesn't have a lot of foreboding, and signals possible renewal and rejuvenation of the characters Kitty interacts with.

On to the comparisons.



There will be comparison's to last years delightful IGN cover of the year, so lets get that out of the way, too.

And of course, it goes without say that this image is referring to this classic shot.


No wait, how did THIS get in here. (Where is the dang *hide* button....)

I am referring to this.

Did anyone else think that the giant space bullet could be taken as a metaphor for Colossus' shlong?

Anywhose, either way, I love the cover.

I think that's what the "I guess that's what Peter really looks like" thing was alluding to.

Or if it wasn't, my mind jumped there too. Scans Daily, you've ruined me!

Just the events surrounding the situation. The X-Men have been devastated by Kitty's death sentence and then on her return comic cover, she's riding the bullet like a rodeo. It's a little funny. Not saying the cover isn't good. It's cute. Just, yeah. XD

I don't know what Kitty's sitting on in that first cover, but it sure as hell isn't a saddle. But I guess you could argue that you need different equipment to ride a horse than you need to ride a silver bullet?

Ha, Kitty's riding a Silver Bullet.

While the saddle is a Dr. Strangelove reference, women sitting on rockets is a classic cheesecake pinup pose. A quick search of DeviantArt turns up these examples:

* http://isabellasart.deviantart.com/art/Crazy-Rocket-Girl-89940217
* http://screeny.deviantart.com/art/Love-Rocket-Soixante-Neuf-91964263 (NSFW)

I like it and certainly have no objections myself, but it's good for everyone to be aware of these things.:-)

But...there wasn't a saddle in Dr Strangleove, the cowboy pose yes, but the saddle no. I am confused by the addition of.

Such a classic - wasn't that based on the old WWII bombers' hull art?

Here's one I found that was just beautiful:

Ride' em, cowgirl!

Yeah, that cover is primarily influenced by classic pinup art -- specifically the nose-art on military aircraft ca. World War II. But what I got from it was a vibe that said, "I've beaten the big, bad space bullet and I'M BACK!"
