Looks like Earth's Mightiest Heroes paid homage to the Merry Mutants of Marvel in a poster for the interlocking covers of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly that spotlights the upcoming blockbuster Marvel Cinematic Universe film that is "Avengers: Age of Ultron"!
Via Comic Book.com, fans have noticed the similarities between the new EW interlocked poster cover that shows The Avengers battling Ultron, to the 90's cover of X-Men #1 as drawn by Jim Lee. In fact, the director of design for the magazine confirmed it is indeed a tribute to said cover in his tweet referencing Mr. Lee.
And obviously a Hulk-sized hat tip to @JimLee #themaster
