The Avengers villain makes a big impact on the Marvel Universe in the publishers upcoming big crossover event- Age of Ultron.
Originally teased at during last year’s Free Comic Book Day, Age of Ultron is finally almost here. The massive Marvel Comics event casts the robotic Ultron in the role of overlord in a battered world where only a select few heroes remain to challenge him.
Evil has triumphed over good and leading this new age is none other than Ultron, the deadly sentient robot created by founding Avenger Hank Pym who turned on his creator to achieve his twisted objective…the utter destruction of humanity. Now, it’s up to the few remaining heroes to band together and find any way to topple their new monarch. Can Wolverine, Emma Frost, Invisible Woman, Taskmaster, Beast, She-Hulk, Luke Cage, Spider-Man, and Moon Knight turn the tide?
Brought to stands by the creative team of Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers vs X-Men) and Bryan Hitch (Ultimates, Fantastic Four), AoU promises to “ultimately change the Marvel Universe leaving no hero or villain unscathed”. That’s a pretty big claim.
Further tantalizing readers, Age will (according to Marvel) have a pretty big surprise ending that the publisher says “nobody will see coming”.
Start prognosticating now- Age of Ultron numbers 1 through 3 will be on sale this March from Marvel Comics. You can pre-order the book at your local comics shop right now.
