This December, Marvel’s team of elite artists showcase New Year’s Eve in the Marvel Universe with Stormbreakers Variants covers. Throughout the month, these covers show off iconic Marvel heroes, like Iron Man and Daredevil, ringing in the New Year. Eight different covers will be released, one for each of the artists in this year’s Stormbreakers class. These covers feature characters like Ghost Rider wearing “2024” glasses and Daredevil toasting with Elektra on a roof.

This year’s class of artists includes Elena Casagrande, Nic Klein, Jan Bazaldua, and Chris Allen. As well as Martin Coccolo, Lucas Werneck, Federico Vicentini, and C.F. Villa.
These artists go on to become household names and some of the most recognized illustrators in comics. Now, this year’s crop is ending the year with some fun in these new Stormbreakers Variants for the New Year.
These new variants kick off with December 6th’s Invincible Iron Man #13. For this Stormbreakers Variant, C.F. Villa shows Tony Stark and Emma Frost ringing in 2024 with a kiss.
