Can You Spot a Pattern Here?

It takes a lot to get me to buy a comic book, because comic books can really be expensive. Typically, I must trust the creative team or have heard good reviews to get me to try it. It's very rare that I buy anything based on the cover.

But when I HAVE bought based on covers, I've noticed that there's a certain something most of them have in common. I'm going to show some of them to you. See if you can figure it out.

So what does this mean for me? Do I have an inherent fascination with duality? Do I believe that superheroes represent the very split dichotomy between our evil and good selves? If it's about duality, where does Carnage fit in? Or do I just really want to see fair fights where anyone can win?

There's Hulk & Abomination as well but the whole Red Hulk thing has put me off that title.
