The amount of variant covers some of these issues have is ridiculous. Moving forward I may only purchase 1st print 1st edition covers. Anything pass that just seems like a marketing ploy that I don't want to be a part of. Not to mention it also takes me out of the nostalgia of how it use to be before variants.

That is THE best way to modify publisher behavior - vote with your wallet.

More akin to "the thing" 1982 

Mirror this picture and BOOM, guaranteed the inspiration for this cover.

No one will care. 

Other than the super random exceptions when one becomes desirable (1st appearance, killer cover, etc).

Dear lord heaven forbid a publisher dares to release something somebody else might like or decide to buy.  :eyeroll:

You just wait until an issue that features a 1st appearance has a first cover appearance and/or first appearance in costume on the variant of the 2nd print. It'll be a thousand dollar CGC 9.8 as soon as the first slabs ship

This is proof that Marvel knows exactly how desirable they're ratio variants are. They always have. But this is where they simply said fuggit, we're just gonna show our true colors godamnit

Rumor is that it was not their idea. They were talked into it by stores. I don't have any proof of that.

It will have a first appearance. That's why the 1st print 1:25 has been selling for as much as $200 and they are doing this now.

Joe Bennett, also does the interiors and they are good. I agree, odd cover, but it relates to the story.
