First Look: AGE OF ULTRON #1 - Submit or Perish

The time has come for Ultron to attack. The Marvel Universe will wish he waited a little longer.

Age of Ultron is a story we've been waiting for. The time has finally come for the heroes to face the "darkest days" of the Marvel Universe. This is something Brian Michael Bendis had been building since the last AVENGERS series. Now all the stars are aligned and we can see what he and Bryan Hitch have planned.

Marvel has revealed a first look at the first issue due in March.

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?

With the robotic revolution in full force, no fan can miss how Age of Ultron will ultimately change the Marvel Universe leaving no hero or villain unscathed! So what are you waiting for? Head on over to your local comic shop and reserve a copy of Age of Ultron #1, featuring a unique cover with foil treatment and design at no extra cost. Fans have been demanding to know more about Age Of Ultron since Free Comic Book Day last year, and come this March – some of those questions and more (including an ending nobody will see coming) will be answered in Age of Ultron!

I cannot wait to see how Emma fits in this.

This sounds really cool.

@spinningwebs: This is before Superior Spider-Man. Peter is here, not Otto.

How is that possible?

it's not...they've said that it's Superior Spider-man appearing in this

Really? They had that teaser in that Point One issue way back when that had Hawkeye clearly trying to get Peter to safety He even called him by name. So that is a little weird...

I mean...I guess they could always change it, but...whatever...it's odd and at least shows they originally intended for it to be Peter.

because no one knows that Ock has taken Peter's place...Ock is simply in Peter's body

@Mr. Kamikaze: They don't know Otto is in Petes body, so of course they're going to call him Pete

This is the only event I'm excited for since Secret Invasion/ Dark Reign

The art looks fantastic! But then that isn't surprising. I really hope this series is good, it's been a long time (even when written by Bendis) since Ultron has not the weakest part of any book he's been in. At any rate, I just don't have the funds in my budget to even consider a 10 issue tri-weekly 3.99 limit series.

Can't wait.

Wow, this does smack of Dark Reign a whole lot, except of course Ultron is in the top spot now with this event. Wonder if it is going to be as large as Dark Reign was? O_o

dont mind alternate future stories but couldnt marvel come up with a better name? we had age of apocalypse and age of x. just saying...

the art looks incredible, but the team seems kind of random. a lot of these people have never worked together before so it will be interesting to see how they interact

I'm really interested in Spider-man's part in provided that its Otto Parker.

I'm pretty sure it's Pete

Posted by Mucklefluga

Hmm i'm excited for this but i dunno whether i'll buy the issues or not. It comes out almost weekly so i think i may skip it.

They lost me at Bendis.

Me too. If it was anyone else, I'd be excited.

I'm getting a sense of deja vu... almost as if... I've heard this somewhere before or something.... but where...? Oh that's right. They said that about last year's event. And the year before that. And the year before that. And the year before that....

I just hope they aren't going to force a bunch of tie-ins on us. Also the only possible good thing that could come out of this is if it's Bendis's last Avengers-related story. Ever. And since it's coming from his awful Heroic Age Avengers, I have zero hope that it will be even remotely decent.

@Mr. Kamikaze: Don't it is very common for anyone to forget that we as the reader sometimes know more than other characters in the story. (+)

I'll read this because Ultron is one of my favourite villains, possibly my favourite. I have no expectations.
