The Top 50 Most Memorable Covers of the Marvel Age!

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Fantastic Four (or, in other words, the fiftieth anniversary of the “Marvel Age,” when Atlas Comics truly became Marvel Comics), we’re going to decide what we all think are the Top 50 Most Memorable Covers of the Marvel Age!

Starting in a few minutes, I’ll begin posting seven memorable Marvel covers a day until December 20th, leaving a total of 105 covers to choose from. Then you all will vote on what you think are the most memorable (via a massive poll, to make it easy for everyone to make their picks) and I’ll unveil the Top 50 on December 22nd and 23rd (25 covers per day).

In the meantime, feel free to send in suggestions (to bcronin@comicbookresources.com) for what covers I should supply as the 105 covers that you all can choose from. Remember, e-mail me your suggestions! Don’t suggest in the comments section.

Mighty Thor 337! oh and I know its a dark horse, but the cover that pulled me in as a kid, was Marvels first Transformers series… issue 5. With Shockwave on the cover, having just burned “ARE ALL DEAD” in the wall. That cover was tits.

You beat me to it, Dale! The Beta-Ray Bill cover of Thor did indeed rock. My second, and rather obvious, pick would be Captain America 111. Steranko rules!

Captain America #272 has always been a personal favorite, but probably not worthy of this list

I”m expecting Captain America Annual #8
Maybe Secret Wars #10
