The Mike Deodato variant for Fearless Defenders #1

The Ed McGuiness variant for Uncanny X-Force #2

And Esad Ribic's cover for Avengers #5

I see they seem to be keeping Bobby's burning and flight powers that he got in the original X-Force series but I think the recent New Mutants series ignored (And didn't lose much by doing so IMHO, he was more interesting with a limited powerset)

No offense, but that Esad Ribic cover says Rivera in the lower left hand corner.

Hmm... probably, but, after doing a quick google search, I have to say that it looks more like Rivera's style than Ribic's.

Oh enormous guns the size of a human torso, I didn't miss you at all.

That's not so much a "gun" as a "gunpowder-driven core training device for professional limbo contestants."

Also, Valkyrie's current costume makes me think she has four boobs. Asgardians must have large litters.

Course they do. Look at Volstaang's family.

Well, that looks like a Heavy machinegun. ...Which Misty, having a super-strong bionic arm, actually could hold up with that arm, and fire with the other.

The rest of her body has to be able to handle the weight and recoil, though. Isn't it a thing with Misty that she's not functionally super-strong when it comes to hefting things?

Then I look twice and she's judo-flipping the Rhino, though, so I guess it works somehow.

The whole point of a judo flip is that you aren't actually lifting anything.

You're not lifting the full body weight, but you're still slinging some mass around. Anyways, whether or not you want to call this particular feat judo, she grabbed a charging Rhino by the horn and threw him over her head from a standing position, and he landed on his face while moving fast enough to bloody himself. Even in comics, it's hard to imagine someone pulling that off without full-body superstrength. (Unless their judo is Shang-Chi level or something, in which case they may as well have full-body superstrength.)

Shouldn't spiral just have four fingers on each hand? I'm such a nerd.

I am in love with the Spiral cover.

The Spiral one is nice, but really, is it wrong to say that all variant covers in the future continue to be done by Young in the AB vs XB style? So adorable and charming...

Love that Avengers cover, but then I have a man-crush on Clint Barton...
