Skottie Young's Black Panther kitten variant cover
Artist Skottie Young's signature "baby Marvel" covers and other variations on Marvel heroes are widely known. He's done baby variants of Deadpool, Spiderman, the Guardians, the Punisher, Storm, and many, many others. His variants are playful and comical.
For his Black Panther #1 variant, Young re-imagines the title character as an adorable kitten, not as a menacing warrior. While Black Panther typically combats evil forces, Young's lead figure struggles with a ball of yarn.
