Updated November 18: Marvel has now revealed all 54 U.S.Avengers #1 state variant covers, including covers that assign Avengers to all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, as well as an image showing all the variants combined into a United States flag, and a chart showing which state variants have been ordered the most.
Updated November 11: Here are 20 more of Marvel's U.S.Avengers #1 state variant covers, bringing the total released so far to 33.
Original story: U.S.Avengers #1 marks the start of a brand new, more patriotic Avengers squad, and to celebrate Marvel is releasing 50 variant covers that assign an Avenger to every state in the United States.
DC Comics once used a similar strategy with state flag-themed variants for Justice League of America #1 in 2013, while Marvel has done a in-continuity gimmick when they assigned an Avengers spin-off team to all 50 states as part of Avengers: The Initiative in 2007.
All 50 variant covers are part of a larger inter-connected image that forms a giant U.S. flag.
U.S.Avengers #1 is solicited with Marvel's December 2016 solicitations, but is scheduled for release January 4.
