Following the release of the first trailer for the new “X-Men ’97” animated series, which arrives on Disney+ on March 20th 2024, Marvel has released some preview images of some variant covers for the upcoming official prelude comic book series, to help get readers ready for the upcoming show.

“X-Men’97” revisits the iconic era of the 1990s as The X-Men, a band of mutants who use their uncanny gifts to protect a world that hates and fears them, are challenged like never before, forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future.

The new variant comic book covers feature the Marvel Legends X-Men ’97 6-inch scale action figure line by Hasbro.  X-Men action figures were a pop culture sensation in the ’90s and now they’re back and better than ever! Reflecting some of the new costumes and characters set to feature in the upcoming series, the five variant covers spotlight five mutant icons: Cyclops, Wolverine, Rogue, Magneto, and Goblin Queen. Utilizing the figure’s stunning box art and expertly articulated designs, these stand-out covers will run on select X-Men issues throughout next month.
