Cosmically Enhanced Variant Covers for GotG and X-Men for The Black Vortex

Check out the cosmically enhanced variant covers for upcoming issues of Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men mini-event “The Black Vortex

Marvel Comics has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive first look at Andrea Sorrentino’s Cosmically Enhanced Variant Covers for the Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black Vortex crossover event.

Sorrentino will provide a Cosmically Enhanced Cover for each of The Black Vortex’s 13 issues. Each cover features a “cosmically enhanced” version of one of the characters playing a role in the event. The cosmically enhanced versions of themselves are what the characters see when they gaze into the mysterious artifact called The Black Vortex.

The eight cosmically enhanced characters seen here are Beast, Gamora, Drax, Angel, Ronan, Jean Grey, Nova, and Captain Marvel.

Check out the covers and their solicitation text below. Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black Vortex begins in February.
