Yes, you read the title correctly. Marvel Comics, yesterday announced its plans to pay homage to classic hip hop albums by adding their iconic superheroes. They will feature on the variant comic book covers for a few of Marvels flagship comics. While it may sound kind of weird, Marvel has a pretty long history of making musical partnerships. No matter how weird it is, it’s super awesome. Personally, I think spiderman would make an awesome rapper. Or maybe producer – “Spidey on the beat hoe!”. Anyway, check them out below!
