Superheroes aren't just known for their superpowers. For the most part, Marvel has long been producing heroes who are just as known and respected for their intellect and endeavors.
Just take for instance, billionaire playboy Tony Stark who's also an eccentric genius skilled enough to create his own armor suit Iron Man and Jarvis. There's also science genius Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man. And let's not forget the big green lug The Hulk, who by day also goes by the name Dr. Bruce Banner, scientist.
It's in these little details that Marvel is able to support and garner interest in the sciences. But now, it has finally made it official by way of a STEAM variant covers. STEAM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, is a string of covers that are geared towards motivating the passions for different fields that can change the world.
In a statement to Popular Science, David Gabriel, Senior VP of sales & marketing for Marvel, had stated that this is a great way for Marvel to inspire fans of all ages.
"With our new STEAM variants, we plan to continue to motivate our fans to explore their passions in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math, and present these disciplines through some of our favorite young heroes who are doing just that—following their dreams and preparing for the challenges that await them ahead."
Each of the STEAM areas have their respective covers devoted to that field. For science, there's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
For technology we have Spider-Man, featuring Miles Morales on the cover. Invincible Iron Man shows off new Ironheart girl hero Riri Williams. She's the candidate for the Engineering field.
The cover for Champions features Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, Incredible Hulk, Viv, Nova, and Cyclops for the Arts.
Finally, The Unbelievable Gwenpool shows Gwen Poole on the cover for Math.
The STEAM variant covers for the Marvel covers will sometime in November.
