Marvel Reimagines Action Figure Variants as “Secret Wars” Battle Standees

Perhaps the only “problem” with John Tyler Christopher‘s nostalgia-fueled “Secret Wars” variant covers is that it’s impossible to actually play with the action figures they depict. Well, Marvel‘s latest promotional item for the line-wide event offers a solution to that issue.

In addition to the release of “Secret Wars” #4, June 27 will also see the debut of the Secret Wars Battle Standee One-Sheet. Each sheet features Mr. Fantastic, Black Panther, Miles Morales, Peter Parker, Star-Lord, Captain Marvel, Thor and Cyclops, and is designed to work alongside July’s Secret Wars Landscape Wraparound variant covers. The covers will depict different Battleworld territories, the first of which is painted by Alex Maleev.

Check out Marvel’s full PR and images below.
