Marvel Comics is celebrating their 70th anniversary this August and in celebration they are publishing special edition variant covers of various comic book titles inspired by music icons of the 80’s and 90’s. X-Men: Legacy #225 features Rogue striking a Vogue pose on the cover, very clearly inspired by the Queen of Pop Madonna:
Celebrating their 70 years on August 11, 2009, Marvel will be spicing up the aniversary by releasing alternate covers to many of its super-heroes magazines, inspired in Music Idols from the 80’s and 90’s. Four covers will be released on June 17 of the 90’s Decade Variant cover of X-Men: Legacy #225 designed by Brazilian artist Adriana Melo features Rogue – one of the mutants’ most controversial characters – striking a pose…
Does Madonna’s pop culture reach know no bounds? I mean, it does make sense that if you’re looking for an icon from the 80’s or 90’s for inspiration, you really need look no further than to he Madgesty herself. I have to say … Rogue looks pretty cool as Maddy. She’s even got Maddy’s monstrous hands, too!! This comic book cover looks pretty sweet … I wonder what other icons of the 80’s and 90’s they’ll be paying homage to as well.
