Ok, how about this for an idea.  We take it in turns to post a favourite (British spelling) comic cover every day.  This went really well on the comic fan website that I used to frequent.  What we tried to do was find a theme or subject and follow that, until we all got bored with that theme.  I'd like to propose a theme of letters of the alphabet. So, for the remainder of October (only 5 days) and all of November, we post comic cover pictures associated with the letter "A".  Then in December, we post covers pertaining to the letter "B".  The association to the letter can be as tenuous as you want it to be. For example I could post a cover from "Adventure Comics" or "Amazing Spider Man".  However Spider Man covers can also be posted when we're on the letter "S".  Adventure Comic covers could also be posted when we're on the letter "L" if they depict the Legion of Super Heroes.  So, no real hard, fast rules - in fact the cleverer the interpretation of the letter, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

And it's not written in stone that we have to post a cover every day. There may be some days when no cover gets posted. There's nothing wrong with this, it just demonstrates that we all have lives to lead.

If everyone's in agreement I'd like to kick this off with one of my favourite Action Comic covers, from January 1967. Curt Swan really excelled himself here.

There's a Kitty Pryde vs. Starlord cover similar to that R.E.B.E.L.S. one, but i can't find it.

I'm disappointed (in myself) that i didn't post that GrimJack cover. 

Here's a Nexus one:

I'm not sure what it looks like on Earth-J, but I found this Pryde-Starlord cover on Google Jeff.

I see your Cables and raise you two Deadpools:

I finally saw Deadpool 2 yesterday. Domino is a real kick. Luck may be the best superpower of all. Looking forward to the promised third installment. So in honor of the movie here is my Deadpool contribution and another Cable.

Thanks, Lee! Yes, That's the one I was thinking of. 

Tank Girl makes another appearance:

Covers with big guns are not necessarily always ultra violent.  Here we see how heavy weaponry can be incorporated into your daily Pilates regime.

Note the signature. 

I guess that this is the "signature" you mean: 

Is that meant to be read as something like "2[man] 4 Kurtz[man]"?  Is that a reference to Harvey Kurtzman?  If so, why?  And what does "2[man]" mean?

My original comment (now deleted) was about how hard that cover was channeling Harvey Kurtzman. Then I noticed the signature and thought, "Duh!" and removed it. I think it's supposed to be "Two men for Kurtzman." (That's the way Harvey Kurtzman signed his name.) 

This cover made the cut:
