So, which cover has been...well...covered the most?

  • The last one even has a trope on TVTropes: tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PietaPlagiarism For some re-stealing, see cracked.com/… – Martijn Jul 27 '15 at 15:55
  • Action #1 has to be in the running. – Politank-Z Jul 27 '15 at 16:13
  • There's a famous cover of the Justice League fighting Starro that has been re-imagined numerous times in various JL media (such as a cutaway in Young Justice, the cover of a fictional book about the JL in the New 52, another cutaway on the Justice League cartoon, etc). – Nerrolken Aug 11 '15 at 16:18
  • How did Reed Richards get wrapped up in all that rope?? Did that massive creature do it? Did he just trip and land in a big heap of rope?? – Daft Aug 11 '15 at 16:53
  • @Martijn Even Multiple Man got a Pieta cover. – user31178 Aug 11 '15 at 17:52
