    Yeah... he's their "don't take this seriously" character. In case DC feels litigious or something.

    Remember the AvX variant where he's taking money from a bunch of Marvel foes who lost their bets?

    The states covers are such a horrid idea. If they had done a separate, unique cover for each state I would have been ok with it. Photoshopping a different flag onto the same cover is just lame.

    Wait. DC isn't doing 52 different covers??? That is kind of lame.

    I just think is just an excuse by Marvel to have an extra variant.

    It is...and the covers are pretty horrid..

    Yup. Marvel is the king of Variant Covers which have absolutely nothing to do with the comic inside.

    Remember the 'Wolverine Art Appreciation' variants from a couple of years ago?

    Sure, DC's different coloured variants are pretty crass, but Marvel really are standing in that little glass house, hurling stones out...

    The variant(s) would be there regardless, it's just a matter of what they decide to do for it

    Deadpool has zero credibility.

    Not just Photoshopped, really poorly Photoshopped, as in pasting in a flat colour version of each flag without even bothering to adjust for lighting or add shadows to fit the shape of the flag.

    Now that's just sad at least, The Walking Dead and Uncanny Avengers had different covers by different artists.

    This was just lazy on DC part and anyone who pay for those covers are crazy.

    Why? They're not sold more expensive than the regular cover. Can't readers just buy the cover that represents their own state?

    Holy crap. And they're referencing the Iwo Jima Marines.

    Of course they can. But I'd be more likely to buy my own state cover if it didn't look exactly everyone else's and was just a photoshopped flag.
