Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is set for release on September 19th, but during the month prior Marvel Comics is going to be doing some special promotion for the upcoming fighting game.


The company has announced a run of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite variant covers for 20 different comic books on the current Marvel line up. These alternate covers will feature characters from the fighting title, Newsarama reports.

Among the list of books getting the variant treatment are Venom #153, Spider-Man/Deadpool #20, I Am Groot #4, and several other characters that have not yet been revealed as playable in MvCI. If these variant covers are giving characters from the game their time in the spotlight a month in advance, then this list might be revealing potential roster additions that we haven't seen yet.
