Steampunk is a subgenre of Sci-Fi with its design elements rooted in the 19th century steam powered machines. It’s a niche thematic that has an unique look that’s easily recognizable. Marvel Snap has a category of variants that are all inspired by classic steampunk elements. We see our favorite heroes get new suits, armors and weapons all with a heavy emphasis on the industrial machines.


 After criminal Sam Wilson was trapped on an island, he learned falconry and after learning of Nazi war criminals on the same island, he helped Captain America (also on the island) and dedicated his life to fighting crime as the Falcon. Falcon’s character is all about overcoming his limits as a man, especially once he dons the title of Captain America. He’s the perfect character for a steampunk variant, because we can see how changing the era would change his entire suit and wings.

Janet van Dyne was born in Cresskill, New Jersey, the daughter of wealthy scientist Vernon van Dyne. When her father is killed by an alien entity unleashed during one of his experiments, Janet turns to his associate Dr. Hank Pym for aid and convinces him to help her. I love this variant because it has that steampunk vibe, but also looks like it’s set in a post apocalyptic setting with the way her helmet looks. Her entire suit looks cool and leather clad and this is definitely one of Wasp’s best variants.

The Destroyer is usually depicted as an opponent of the Thunder God and hero Thor, it is in fact a suit of Asgardian armor created and animated by magic. I love how the creative minds behind this variant have decided to fit Destroyer to a steampunk setting by making him run on steam and have something akin to a furnace in the center of his chest. He’s still a walking pile of metal, but this variant just gives him so much more personality by giving him all of these new mechanical gears and parts.

While exploring the lab, Cross came across a prototype battle armor built by Hank Pym which used its wearer's Pym Particles as a power source to turn the suit into a quantum weapon. Captivated by the prospect of power, Cross donned the armor for himself. I love the intricate artwork on Yellowjacket’s armor in this variant. The small details etched into the armor give Yellowjacket a whole different feel, and I just love his pose in this artwork.

Hisako Ichiki lived in Tokyo, Japan with her brother and parents before joining the Xavier Institute. When the training squad system began, Armor was placed with Kitty Pryde's Paladins Squad with Blindfold and Wing. Armor formed a close friendship with Wing, and even described him as being her best friend. Although Hisako Ichiki’s armor is spectral and isn’t actually made out of gears and valves and what not, this variant still clearly gets across that steampunk feeling. I also really like how they paid attention to detail and made Hisako look like she’s in a steampunk world even though you can barely see her once she activates her armor.

All Armor Variants



The Mark XLIV Iron Man Armor, better known as the Hulkbuster, was Tony Stark's forty-fourth Iron Man suit, made with the help of Bruce Banner. Created solely for the purpose of restraining Hulk, it is a modular suit that Stark donned while already in another armor. Hulkbuster looks like he’s not in his prime due to the steampunk aesthetic, but I really like the feel of this character in this variant. The suit seems a lot more jagged and worn than usual, and I really like how it looks like it’s actually using steam to fly because of the tornado of air that’s beneath Hulkbuster.

The man known as Forge was a Cheyenne Indian, once the pupil of Naze, a shaman in his tribe. Forge developed considerable mystical powers as a result of the training Naze gave him and was also a mutant with an unusual talent for inventing mechanical devices. Forge in Marvel Snap is most often depicted with his pistol. This variant changes that completely and gives him a huge machine gun - which is so fitting for a mutant with an affinity for creating mechanical devices. He doesn’t look as steampunk-y as the rest of the variants, but he makes up for it being incredibly cool.

Used primarily by the Avengers for transportation to various locations, the Quinjet is first designed by the Wakanda Design Group, headed by Black Panther, T'Challa. I love the look of this variant. Steampunk Quinjet looks amazing - leather wings and steam engines are a very suitable look for Quinjet. I love the trail of steam that Quinjet leaves behind itself while it soars through the sky.

The Sentinels were artificially intelligent robots designed to hunt mutantkind. The Sentinels were first created by Dr. Bolivar Trask. His intention was to use them to save humanity from what he saw as an impending threat to the species' existence due to the increasing numbers of emerging mutants. I just love everything about Steampunk Sentinels’ design. The color scheme is amazing and I love how he doesn’t seem to be completely connected, but is instead a torso floating on legs by some sort of magnetic or gravitational force.

All Sentinel Variants



Bishop is a mutant from a dystopian future.Bishop's mutant ability enables him to absorb all forms of radiant or conductive energy that are directed towards him and to release that energy from his body.  This variant just looks so pleasing. I love the way Bishop resembles a cowboy with his outfit and his pistol looks very steampunk-y and interesting. His suit is so detailed with all kinds of belts and hooks and it makes him look very cool.
