Marvel Comics Characters Get the Tron Treatment

5 Comments

“Tron” is cool. Just ask the fat guy that dresses up in a Tron costume everytime he goes to one of those geek conventions. Marvel Comics thinks “Tron” is cool, too, and they’ve Tron-ized some of their characters a variant covers in some of their title, which includes:

Amazing Spider-Man #651, by Mark Brooks, in stores on Dec. 15.
Avengers #7, by Brandon Peterson, in stores on Nov. 17.
Avengers Academy #7, Brandon Peterson, in stores on Dec. 15.
Captain America #612, by Mark Brooks, in stores on Nov. 24.
Incredible Hulks #618, by Mark Brooks, in stores on Dec. 8.
Invincible Iron Man #33, by Brandon Peterson, in stores on Dec. 22.
New Avengers #7, by Mark Brooks, in stores on Nov. 17.
Secret Avengers #7, by Mark Brooks, in stores on Nov. 24.
Thor #617, by Brandon Peterson, in stores on Nov. 10.
Wolverine #4, by Brandon Peterson, in stores on Dec. 1.

I gotta admit, the Iron Man and Spider-Man ones look pretty good. The Thor one, though, is just a big “huh”?

“Tron: Legacy” lightcycles its way into theaters December 17, 2010.

    My favs are the Spiderman-Captain America, Moon Knight, and Ghost Rider. The Ms. marvel is just hot! And Quicksilver needed a mask or helmet. Me and my boy agree Thor was a missed oportunity for a sick helmet like the ones in “Legacy” but with “Light wings” on the side.

    I woulda loved to see like Daredevil, Cyclops, Black Panther, and Nova done up Tron Style.

    If only this wasn’t becasue Marvel has the rights to produce the Tron legacy prequel comic, that bridges the gap between Tron and Legacy. I’d love to see DC get the Tron treatment. Just imagine Flash, Green Lantern, Batman, and Superman, just to name a few.

    Yeah, I was about to mention Black Panther would have looked cool with glowing neon eyes and claws too. Btw I sent Marvel some designs of Black Panther with Light Saber Claws and upgraded supernatural powers three years ago. I noticed that Marvel is using my idea for the claws in a clip for Avengers World’s Mightiest Hero’s. I’m not mad at em tho, it’s their character and I think it’s way better than the corny OVERLY DONE metal claws. I also did a design with Captain America with Thor’s power. He has the cape on one shoulder with the star pendant holding it,the helmet is a mix of Cap’s with Thor’s, the hammer has two rams heads on each end and has the old Celtic Thor’s Hammer form and designs. The Shield has Odin’s Triple horn cross with a 5 pointed star in the middle,it’s has magic powers able to absorb kinetic and magic power, shoot it back and blades open out of the shield when thrown(sort of like Rygar). Also I made that he has a mystic and magical golden eagle that helps and accompanies him. I wish I could put the designs on here so yal could see but I don’t know how to. They’re pretty cool so if you ever see Marvel using them you’ll know they are my ideas. If Marvel uses them I don’t care,I just think it’d be cool to see. It’s based on a story I wrote of Thor’s death and,Thor gives Steve Rogers Mjolnir,Rogers is transformed and replaces Thor as the new Odin Son “The MidGuardian”.

    The Quicksilver I think looks great!! Captain America, Spiderwoman, Ironman and Ghostrider looks awesome and would really fit in to the Tron universe. While the Wolverine still looks pretty, I think him and Thor are the weakest in my opinion. The Wolverine should have had the blades fade off towards the end, it looks like he’s just holding yellow sticks, not really blade like. The Spiderman reminds me of Spiderman 2099 a bit.

    Some ones I would have loved to see are Magneto, Dr. Doom, Gambit, Punisher, Cable and Venom could have been really cool too.
