It might be obvious, but in addition to being superheroes, many Marvel Comics characters are major book worms. Peter Parker, Bruce Banner, Tony Stark -- the list goes on and on. Embracing this fact and promoting education, Marvel has announced special STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) themed variant covers for a handful of titles this November.
"With our new STEAM variants, we plan to continue to motivate our fans to explore their passions in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math," Marvel exec David Gabriel said with regard to the announcement, "and present these disciplines through some of our favorite young heroes who are doing just that - following their dreams and preparing for the challenges that await them ahead."
STEAM variant covers revealed thus far include:
- Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur #13 by Joyce Chin (Science)
- "Spider-Man" #10 by Pasqual Ferry (Technology)
- "Champions" #2 by Pascal Campion (Arts)
- "Gwenpool" #8 by Will Sliney (Maths)
Additionally, "Invincible Iron Man" #2 will have a cover, that's yet to be revealed, representing engineering.
