Marvel 50th Anniversary Variants

Welcome back to another Run Recap!  This week we take a look at Marvel's 2011 50th Anniversary Run.  Not the highest point in Marvel print runs, most of these books simply do not exist right now.

25 titles got the special homage treatment though when you look at how low the max print runs could be, building a set certainly seems daunting.

Below each comic is the max number of the variant(based on the 1:50 ration against the stated print run of the comic) that could exist.

Remember a lot of stores were not ordering enough of most of these titles to qualify and that some of the projected numbers are actually much lower.
