I Can’t Cover What I Am – Marvel’s 70th Anniversary Covers

In this feature, I spotlight comic book covers that follow a specific theme. Here is an archive of all the cover themes we’ve spotlighted so far.

With their books cover-dated October 2009 (so roughly August 2009), Marvel decided to celebrate their 70th Anniversary as a company (unlike their 1986 25th anniversary, which only celebrated the beginning of the Marvel Universe specifically) with a series of variant covers in the style of their 25th Anniversary covers from 1986. Jim Cheung did the border art and a variety of artists did the spotlight art. So today, here are all of the Marvel 70th Anniversary covers (Thor did not come out that month, so as far as I can tell, it did not get a 70th Anniversary cover).

I Can’t Cover What I Am – Superman Gets Punched!

In this feature, I spotlight comic book covers that follow a specific theme. Here is an archive of all the cover themes we’ve spotlighted so far.

Obviously, when someone is as strong and as tough as Superman is, to see him getting punched by someone (and having it actually be felt) is quite a sight! That’s why it’s been seen so much on covers over the years.

An amusing thing about it, though, is that it was NOT used for the first couple of decades of Superman’s career – I think you could make the argument that this cover theme really does not work until Superman is COMPLETELY set as a paragon of strength and toughness – otherwise, it’s seen as an ACTUAL sign of weakness, and not “Wow, that guy just punched Superman! What the heck is going on in THIS comic?!? I must find out now!”

In any event, here are ten cool comic covers of Superman showing off his “oh man, I just got punched hard” face
