Sometimes I think these publishers take potshots at one another just because they can.  Call me crazy, but the variant cover to the upcoming Captain Brittain and MI-13 #18 and Ghost Rider #30, seems to be a direct smack at DC’s upcoming Faces of Evil covers.

    I think the villian variants have everything to do with the fact that Marvel’s villians are about to take center stage and nothing to do with DC’s Faces of Evil campaign.
