"Reinterpreting our Super Heroes through these fashion magazine covers perfectly demonstrates what we believe about our characters — The idea that anyone can express their own unique identity and individualism," says Sana Amanat, Director of Content Development and Editor at Marvel Comics.

While model Kloss says "it's important that young girls have fierce and strong role models to look up to and that’s what this project is really about".

"These role models come in many forms, from fictional Super Heroes to incredible businesswomen to strong female athletes."
