First Look: AGE OF ULTRON #3 - Submit or Perish

The fight continues with the team up of an unlikely trio.

The story we've been waiting for is almost here. AGE OF ULTRON #1 is set for a March release. We've seen a 'first look' for the first issue last month. Looks like the action is heating up.

Today Marvel has released a first look for the third issue, also set for a March release. This is going to be a non-stop action-packed story.

Hopefully this cover isn't a major spoiler...

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the explosive Age Of Ultron #3! From the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis (All New X-Men, Avengers VS. X-Men) and Bryan Hitch (Ultimates, Captain America Reborn) the high octane brawl against Ultron kicks it up a notch as Red Hulk, Black Panther and Taskmaster take up arms against their robotic overlord! Can the few remaining heroes band together and find any way save the Marvel Universe before all humanity is crushed under the cold metal heel of Ultron?

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 #3. 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!

AGE OF ULTRON #3 (JAN130637)

Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS

Art and Cover by BRYAN HITCH

@Backflip age of ultron is set in 616 ?

Posted by Mucklefluga

Looks so much better than AVsX

Posted by Urban_Ronin

Seems not even Age of Ultron can fix Tasky's ugly ass mask smh.

Posted by regrivett

I can't bring myself to care about this at all. I know Bendis said that this is in continuity, but it really doesn't feel like it.

Posted by longbowhunter

Hey Taskmaster! Doubt I'll pick up Age of Ultron. If anthing I'll wait for the trade. Marvel events always seem to disappoint.

If I got it, it would only be for Tasky teaming up with Rulk.

Posted by Trevel8182

Well at least it's not Heroes vs Heroes again.

RED HULK LOL. His face is priceless

Posted by Chaos Burn

So IS this 616?

Posted by Supreme_Maj

This can't be a continuity the way everything has been destroy? No way. Especially when Kang is involve this will be another timeline. The survivors of this will travel back to the past before Ultron took over and reset everything the way it was and this will create an alternate timeline. Sorry this is the way i see it if it was the ultmate verse ok but the mainstream no way. Unless Bendis has lost it for good.

Is this in the main stream universe or?

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

I like Taskmaster's costume. Thats probably how he will look in the movies, when he shows up I mean.

Are there any character design pics of his new uniform?

Posted by spinningbirdcake

I don't understand why people are confused on whether this will be a different universe or will end with it being a different universe. I mean: Age of Apocalypse, Age of Ultron. Seems to me that it's pretty obvious.

Posted by TDK_1997

Taskmaster along side with Red Hulk and T'Challa...interesting.

Posted by Oscars94

Why are Red Hulk's eyes not yellow? When did She-Hulk get a haircut? How can Ultron's lasers pierce T'challa's vibranium armor? Why are the Ultron's organic? Why is Taskmaster SO AWESOME?!

I love Brian Hitch

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Looks like there will be alliances unlike anything we've ever seen...again.

@StMichalofWilson:

Heh, just wait for the Infinity arc....

Posted by henryarguelles73

Rulk looks weird.

Posted by JamDamage

@Quintus_Knightfall: I was thinking the same thing. His mask actually looks cool in the Task Master Mini-series. More of a Mexican "Day of the Dead" mask.

Yeah thats one of the only times I can recall him sporting a decent mask portrayal. Udon's mask is cool too.

The teaser for this specifically stated that it's NOT an alternate reality, but with the total destruction of pretty much everything, how can it not be?

Also, is it just me, or is releasing a preview to #3 when #1 isn't even out, kind of pointless.

Posted by CrimsonAlchemist

Really digging Taskys new look.

Posted by mrpandopool

Did Black Panther just died in this preview? O_o

Posted by Teerack

Taskmaster? Nice! I didn't really think about how the villains might actually help in this event.

Posted by powerhouse1122

Does it even matter if it's mainstream or alternate? Everything goes back to the way it is anyway. Try to apreciate the fuckin sense here. My only problem is that this crossover is too soon. I mean cant they wait for a year to come before making another big event?

Your just still sore that he can beat up Lady Shiva...

He is desperately in need of a new costume, the 80's undead pirate costume is way past overdue for replacement.

Am I the only one who doesn't like this art?

Posted by Tony_Shark

LOVE the art! It's the old seriousness from the ultimate universe that makes this look so dark and interesting.

Edited by jstndmnd

@Prodigy P: From what I can tell you are the only one and apparently also tony_shark.

whos that big green guy that luke cage is holding

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Very nice...Panther and Tasky and Rulky working together. Color me fascinated.

Posted by -The Renegade-

 I get the feeling Red Hulk is going to die, which would be pointless.

Posted by OriginalVenom

Ouch... way to go with the Black Panther head bonk. Taskmaster isn't really portrayed well as far as looks, of course this is my opinion. Looks more like a chimp skull than an actual skull in the panel. Amazing art work non the less.

Posted by SavageDragon

Red Hulks face looks strange because he looks like a nice guy haha.

Posted by OmgOmgWtfWtf

Where is Ultron? I want to see THE Ultron, not his little babies.

Posted by bunkerbuster05

You had me at Taskmaster.

Edited by Veshark

Sigh, Bryan Hitch's art has really dropped since his earlier days. It's not that it's bad, but his AoU art suffers from the same problem his Captain America Reborn work had - rushed and messy inks. Then there's the lack of black lines around the panels - which is really distracting. There were no black lines in Cap Reborn, only white gutters like this, and it was really uncomfortable to read.

Also, Taskmaster's costume looks like a weird blend of Hitch's Moon Knight and the Ultimate Quicksilver costume :O

Still, despite the somewhat-disappointing art, I'm definitely looking forward to this crossover. Alternate universe or not, if it's anything like the quality of Bendis' recent writing (All New X-Men!)...my interest is piqued.
