  1. My favourite has to be X-Men #1. The normal cover of awesome enough on its own. But even better was the Skottie Young variant, which is just one of the best things ever, as all his variants are.

    I also kinda dug Avengers #11. It was a cute little homage to Japanese hero fashion.

    Fearless Defenders #4 was neat. A fun idea. That series just has really cool covers in general.
