Mickey & Friends Celebrate the Avengers and X-Men's 60th Anniversary in New Disney What If? Covers

Following this year's hit Disney100 Variant Covers, check out the first three in a new monthly 'Disney What If' variant cover series launching next year.

This past year, Marvel Comics joined The Walt Disney Company’s 100th anniversary celebration with Disney100 Variant Covers that featured homages of iconic Marvel covers starring Mickey Mouse and friends. In 2024, these best-selling covers continue, this time celebrating the 60th anniversary of two of Marvel’s most iconic super hero teams: the Avengers and the X-Men

Like the Disney100 Variant Covers, the new DISNEY WHAT IF VARIANT COVERS will be a monthly variant cover program adorning select issues of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Also available in black and white, the 12 upcoming covers will see Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and more take over milestone moments in both Avengers and X-Men history.

The first trio of covers kicks things off in the Silver Age with a spin on the Avengers and X-Men’s very first appearances in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original AVENGERS #1 and X-MEN #1 from 1963. Both homages also feature Peg Leg Pete as the group’s respective archenemies: Loki and Magneto!

Then, Mickey and friends assemble for a turning point for the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, AVENGERS #16, which saw Captain America lead a brand-new Avengers roster that included new recruits like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver!
