Marvel Puts A Bird On 'Uncanny X-Men' #1

So remember when we told you about DC's 52 variant covers for "Justice League of America" #1 - each one representing a U.S. state, plus D.C. and Puerto Rico? Well, Marvel is poiking a bit of fun at their old rivals with the variant cover for "Uncanny X-Men" #1 by Stuart Immonen.

Deadpool is posing with 50 state birds, plus Puerto Rico and D.C.'s birds and a good ol' bald eagle tossed in for good measure.

Senior Editor Nick Lowe said:

With Inauguration day and Spring just around the corner – we could think of no better way than to celebrate our history with a beaked representative from every state including Puerto Rico and then some!

He forgot to add..."we're like totally stickin' it to D.C. too!"

It's all in good fun I'm sure.

"Uncanny X-Men" #1 from Brian Michael Bendis and Chris Bachalo hits shelves on Feb 13, 2013.
