Many fans believe the Marvel Cinematic Universe is on the decline, and while the Multiverse Saga has certainly been a tad more hit-and-miss than we'd like, the franchise isn't exactly on its last legs quite yet!

Still, if Marvel Studios wishes to shake things up, why not enlist the actors who play Earth's Mightiest Heroes for a real-life "Swimsuit Special"?

A very talented artist, Petite Madame, has shared their take on those iconic covers, this time with the MCU's lead characters. Taking centre stage are Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). 

These were first published last year, but they've resurfaced on social media this week and have generated quite a discussion among fans. We don't anticipate ever seeing anything like this for real, of course, but these covers at least give us an idea what such a thing would look like. 

Marvel Comics' Swimsuit Specials were a series of annual publications featuring the publisher's superheroes and villains in beachwear, often set in summer-themed scenarios. The first Marvel Swimsuit Special was released in 1991 and the trend continued through to the mid-1990s.

The specials typically featured pin-up style illustrations of popular Marvel characters, showcasing artists' interpretations in a lighthearted and often humorous manner. While the primary focus was on showcasing artistic talent, the specials also included tongue-in-cheek commentary, fictional interviews, and humorous anecdotes.

We're not sure how they'd be received today, but Marvel's Swimsuit Specials were a departure from traditional superhero storytelling, offering fans a playful and visually vibrant celebration of their favourite characters in a, how shall we put this, "relaxed" and "unconventional" setting.

The MCU's heroes will next assemble in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, with Avengers: Secret Wars set to follow a year later. Marvel Studios also appears to have vague plans for the Young Avengers, though when or where we'll see them on screen together is unclear.

How is this news? This should be a feature.

@WhatIfRickJames - it's clearly a slow news day. The Pooper Scoopers and Twitterbots haven't thought of a new fake rumour to spread and it shows

What the hell is this? Please fire Josh. Please. He makes this site worse.

And when you think things couldn't reach a new low on this site. @NateBest how does stuff like this make into the main page? Isn't there any sort of moderation in place?
Apophis71 - 12/6/2023, 3:14 PM
@Urubrodi - Fits about as much as those old cosplay articles used to I guess :D I'd rather have this than some of the more vague probably BS rumor stuff and most of the listicles.

@joshwilding This is from a year and a half ago. And, why is it categorized as news?? It's weird fetishy fan art. Not news.

Y'all if you want to send a message to Josh and this site. Don't comment on this article, don't click on it again. Let it fall into the forgotten archives, and do the same with any other nonsense that gets posted.

@RoberTiger - If from that long ago, probably cos it has resurfaced due to the text on a certain red top suddenly having more relevance?
OleBobbyTiger - 12/6/2023, 3:22 PM
@Apophis71 - No if needed in your statement... there is a date on the tweet to confirm it. What happened that the text is suddenly more relevant?
BlackStar25 - 12/6/2023, 5:16 PM
@RoberTiger - You speak too much sense my friend. Half these mofos cant help themselves but to click and comment crybaby messages...
