Beautiful cover! Although half the team is missing...

I wonder when Marvel will show Skottie Young's Marvel Babies Variant Cover for this first issue. All of his covers for the first issues of Marvel NOW have been great so far.

I don't care for the Skottie Young variants. They don't even look like babies to me.

I really think Mike Deodato wins Best Improvement for superhero artists. He's come so far from the silly "bad girl" art he used to do.

He's an amazing artist. And he's also a very nice guy; I met him at a comic con in Brazil and Deodato was nice to everyone there (and showed a great sense of humor with his comments).

This book will get a good number of variant covers, right? Coipel's (well, his is the official cover, actually), Dodson's, Brooks's, Deodato's, Young's (which still needs to be shown), that one with Deadpool and zombie-fied Beatles...

Feels like a strategy to increase sales. I hope this first issue sells very well (hopefully above 100 thousand copies)... and that the other issues sell just as well, too! I'd say I also hope it is a good book, but with Wood and Coipel working on it, how could it be anything but fantastic??

I don't know if you have already seen this, but Young finally showed his cover for X-Men #1 (and it's adorable!): http://skottieyoung.com/post/49855268012/x-men-1-young-variant-no-boys-allowed

And there's also a Midtown exclusive variant cover, drawn by J. Scott Campbell: http://www.midtowncomics.com/store/dp.asp?prid=X-Men+Vol+4+%231+Midtown+Ex_1256023

That means so far this first issue will have SEVEN covers!! And I love them all (well, except the one with Deadpool...)!

There are currently 13 variants for Xmen 1:
50th
Skottie
Hastings
Midtown
Dodson
Manera
Blank
Dynamic Forces
Mile High

At least that's what I am aware of. Now, can ANYONE tell me what the ratios are?!?
