One of Marvel’s newest series is giving us a super-sized release—and our own Avengers.

U.S. Avengers, which centers on the U.S. government’s new spy agency, which came to be after S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, will debut in January 2017. But it will also release 50 variant covers to bring the Avengers to all 50 states of the U.S.; Canada and Puerto Rico will also receive variant covers.

BuzzFeed debuted eight of the 50 variants with art by Rod Reis, and while some of the covers correspond to some aspect of their stories (such as Luke Cage or Iron Man), others might be more random or symbolic; Steve Rogers is matched with Delaware, the First State, for instance.

You can see all of the variant covers at BuzzFeed.

As for the other states? We’ve got four months to decide which heroes belong to them.
