What's Your Favourite Parody Comic Book Cover?

Comics have given us some truly memorable cover art — from Superman's debut in Action Comics #1 to the legendary "Spider-Man No More!" of Amazing Spider-Man #50. So many have become iconic that they have formed the basis for countless parodies and homages since. What's your favourite spin on a classic cover?

There are so many to choose from, but we must to go with what has to be one of the most parodied covers in comics history: John Byrne and Terry Austin's Uncanny X-Men #141, the start of the legendary "Days of Future Past" storyline. It depicts Wolverine and Kitty Pryde in front of a dystopian poster showing a list of their fellow mutants that have been apprehended or slain. So many have paid tribute to it, from Marvel itself to Star Wars comics and even Darkwing Duck, but our favourite is this TNG-flavoured version J.K. Woodward did for IDW's Star Trek: The Lost Generation miniseries.

Wesley in the "damsel in distress" pose is brilliant. Let us know your favourite parody cover in the comments!
