    They were going to go with the traditional pink October awareness covers but that didn't work out so well for Spider-Woman so they had to change

    This is a nice gesture but... Most people who read comics are adults who do not necessarily need this kind of support.

    I am actually more entertained by the idea that a cover has word balloons.

    I like the covers just for the gesture alone.

    Seems a bit like slacktivism. And I can hear, "And knowing is half the battle!" in the background.

    Hulk really looks like he's going to SMASH the bullies. I love the recycling of the Star Lord gag from the film.

    All I see is lost opportunity...so much potential to do more with this.

    That's what I thought when I saw the thumbnail.

    Seriously, it's a really terrible cover, looks like the people were drawn separately and pasted onto that background. And Cap... yeah, you don't need to be in your bulky armoured suit, holding your shield to grab a kid bully's arm.

    You forgot about the bully's design, which is an excellent representation of bullies.

    Anybody know what the ordering ratio for these is? To really push awareness I think it should have been "order as many as you want" but I'm not sure if Marvel do that with variants.

    I would find it funny if they did this the opposite way and did variants of super villains bullying children lol.

    Also I think they could of have done this with teenage heroes instead.

    Also surprise theres not one of "mutants"
