Take a look at each tie-in's corresponding cover below.
As indicated in the artwork, the series promises a team-up between classic Marvel heroes and their legacy counterparts -- whether or not that makes sense in current continuity. How does that work, exactly? Well, Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Axel Alonso says that will all make sense...eventually. "These stories do happen, they really count. They really matter. This isn't some alternate reality story or some time-travel story," Alonso said. "You don't take these characters off the board with the intention to keep them off the board forever. One of the tropes of our medium is characters get a second wind. They die and come back. That's part of the beauty of what we do."
Marvel's Generations kicks off in August, 2017.
