Cover Convention: Superheroes In Space!

At this point, it's hard to think of new frontiers for pretty much any long-running Marvel or DC character. They've been through the wringer over the decades, from deaths, resurrections, time travel, alternate realities, and frequently a combination of all of the above.

But even though Spidey's been to outer space before, there's still something striking about seeing him in a spacesuit floating in the cosmos, as he is on the cover of this week's Amazing Spider-Man #680.

The history of comic books is full of such images, and we're sharing just a few of our favorites for the latest Cover Convention, "Superheroes In Space." And for the most part, we've limited it to characters who like Spider-Man you wouldn't typically expect to see in space, rather than ones who make it out there all the time like the Fantastic Four or Green Lantern.
