Disney twenty-three magazine is offering three special collectible covers featuring different Avengers’ characters for its summer issue, which will be available on May 1.

Coinciding with the worldwide theatrical release of Marvel’s The Avengers, the summer issue of Disney twenty-three features a 10-page story on the creation of the superhero film. Author and Disney Imagineer Jason Surrell spoke with the film’s acclaimed writer-director Joss Whedon, as well as stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston and Clark Gregg, and producer Kevin Feige to get the behind-the-scenes details on the explosive film, from the complexities of bringing many of the world’s most famous heroes together to nights out dancing in downtown Albuquerque.

Each of the magazine’s three front and back covers feature different characters:

1. Iron Man and Nick Fury on front; Hulk and Captain America on back

2. Thor and Black Widow on front; Iron Man and Hawkeye on back

3. Captain America on front; Hulk and Hawkeye on back
