CONAN THE BARBARIAN Takes On The Heroes And Villains Of The Marvel Universe On New Variant Covers

Next January, Marvel Comics is launching a brand new Conan the Barbarian series and to celebrate, the iconic character goes to war with various Marvel heroes and villains on a number of variant covers...

As you may have heard, Jason Aaron, Mahmud Asrar, and Esad Ribic are bringing Conan back to Marvel next January in Conan the Barbarian #1. To celebrate that, Marvel Comics is releasing a series of variant covers showcasing the sword-slashing hero with a series of variants showcasing Conan facing off against some of Marvel's most important heroes...and villains! 

There's going to be twenty in total but we have the first seven for you below and these feature characters like Spider-Man, Captain America, the Fantastic Four, and The Immortal Hulk.

I haven't been keeping too up to date with this new series from Marvel but I'm assuming that Conan won't actually be part of the Marvel Universe proper, teaming up with the likes of the heroes mentioned above! We'll have to wait and see but it's fair to say these variants feature some crossovers none of us expected to see. 

To check out these covers, all you guys have to do is click on the "View List" button down below.




Is this supposed to be a fun take on Kraven's Last Hunt? If so, it certainly works and it would be a lot of fun seeing the legendary warrior go to war with one of Spidey's most formidable foes. 
 


Like Wolverine vs. The Hulk, this would be one helluva battle but seeing as Conan doesn't have a healing factor, I'm pretty sure the Green Goliath would ultimately end up emerging victorious here.
 


Conan is definitely outmatched here but if anyone could help introduce him to the modern world, it would have to be this group of Imaginauts! With any luck, this meeting will take place one day.
 


Conan vs. The Lizard? Yes, please! What's really interesting above this cover, though, is whether or not it means Peter Parker's version of the Lizard will return to plague Spider-Gwen/Ghost Spider. 
 


Captain America is a man out of time, so it's only fitting that he go head to head with Conan! His shield would no doubt come in handy against that sword but who would be the better fighter?
 


Another crazy crossover I think it's fair to say none of us knew we needed, Conan going head to head with the villainous Ultron would definitely put the iconic hero outside of his comfort zone.
 


What's really cool about Conan the Barbarian being back at Marvel is the fact that the company will no doubt find some cool ways to tie his mythology into that of the main Marvel Universe. We'll see...
