    Of-course with time/dimension shift being the theme of the cover and a staple of the character, it was bound to reoccur.

    How about the iconic Superman cover? There are a ton of those.

    It's all just an opinion. Stop taking me so damn seriously.

    Was this, like, fan-art?

    Believe me, there are plenty more where that came from.

    This one was one of my favorites. That whole story (from L.E.G.I.O.N. Annual #5) was hilarious, a Silver Age re-telling of Stealth raping and killing Vril Dox.

    Click this link to see a collection of Avengers and X-Men covers that imitate each other. I forgot all about these.

    Let's try keeping this thread for DC-only covers, though I don't mind those aping a DC cover (or visa versa).

    EDIT: The Superman vs. Wonder Woman cover didn't show up before, but it does in my reply post. Weird. At any rate, your post was perfectly fine then.

    Ah! It seems I accidentally fixed the problem in my reply post. Just did the same with the original.

    I think the idea of having characters square off against each other in profile was popularized by Carmine Infantino on covers like this one for JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA No. 56, with Anderson inks--

    You know that I soon will leave, so don't try to make me stay.
