With the titular team of West Coast Avengers trying to make a name for themselves in Los Angeles as both superheroes and reality television stars, it seems the recently-formed outfit is set to make their very first talk show appearance.

Marvel has now revealed artist David Nakayama’s variant cover for West Coast Avengers #4, which features Hawkeye (Clint Barton), Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), Gwenpool, Quentin Quire and America Chavez alongside popular real-life late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel.
“We wanted the new West Coast Avengers to be able to debut to the rest of the Marvel Universe in a big, bombastic way,” said series editor Alanna Smith. “And what’s a better place for a team that’s courting the LA limelight to debut than Jimmy Kimmel Live? (Or, at least, the Marvel U equivalent!)”
“Thanks for letting our crazy kids crash your show!” West Coast Avengers writer Kelly Thompson added in a tweet to Jimmy Kimmel.
This variant cover is also a direct homage to that of 1984’s Avengers #239, the comic where Clint Barton actually made his very first late-night talk show appearance, appearing on Late Night with David Letterman alongside Black Widow, Beast, Wonder Man and Black Panther.
