Marvel Comics Variants Celebrating 100 Years Of Disney Showcase The Crossovers Fans Once Dreaded

There was a time when Disney's acquisition of Marvel Entertainment left fans fretting about what that would mean for the brand, and fun new variants from Marvel Comics reveal that potential nightmare fuel.

Not all of you will remember this, but way back in 2009, a lot of fans were genuinely concerned when news broke that Disney had acquired Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion. 

The MCU was still in its infancy, but there was a very real fear that the Marvel Universe's beloved heroes and villains would end up being Disney-fied, with the brand primarily used to increase the popularity of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, for example!

Those crossovers have never happened (we also didn't get the rumoured Pixar/Marvel movie so many of us hoped for), but you can get an idea of what might have been thanks to some newly revealed variant covers from Marvel Comics. 

The Walt Disney Company will mark its 100th anniversary in 2023, celebrating the incredible storytellers, creators, and fans who, together, spark the magic and wonder of Disney.

Disney100 is a celebration of that journey and will bring new experiences with beloved characters around the globe, and Marvel Comics will be marking the occasion with a special monthly variant cover program featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and more.

The covers are going to explore Marvel's past, present, and future through the classic "What If" lens with a fantastic reimagining of the publisher's most classic comic book covers.

Below, you can check out Disney's iconic characters immersed in pivotal moments of the Marvel mythos including the earth-shattering Infinity Gauntlet, the debut of the lineup of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes that would define the 2000s in New Avengers #1, and the transformative journey Tony Stark went on in the pages of Invincible Iron Man.

With 12 covers in total, it's said we can look forward to a new Disney100 variant cover hitting stands each month of 2023 at local comic book shops. The first of these variant covers will be found on tomorrow's Amazing Spider-Man #17

Check out Chiara Di Francia, Donald Soffritti, and Claudio Sciarrone's covers below.
