Submit or Perish - First Look: AGE OF ULTRON #5

The fight continues and the heroes must make a decision.

Things are heating up in AGE OF ULTRON. We saw a little more background in today's issue #2. We saw some more familiar faces. We can't be sure what's coming next but we can see the heroes are gearing up for a big fight. At least the ones that have survived are.

Marvel has just released a first look for issue #5, on sale next month.

This April, the fight against the mechanical menace Ultron has reached a fever pitch in Age Of Ultron #5, courtesy of the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Bryan Hitch! The few remaining members of Earth’s Mightiest must head to the Savage Land in the hopes of finding a way to survive and turn the tide of war! But with half of the heroes dead, are they enough to stop 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 #5!

AGE OF ULTRON #5 (FEB130477)

Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS

Art and Cover by BRYAN HITCH

I like the series, but how is Spider-Man peter parker? and how does emma still have her power?

Edited by KingdomCome

Hopefully the story progresses much more over the following issues, its felt almost vacant within the first two entries in the series. Bryan Hitch's work, as usual, looks mind-blowingly stunning, I consistently am finding myself disappointed by Marvel's shuffling of team's, yes I understand the scheduling is much more hectic with the 2 week launch window, but I would happily wait for the likes of Hitch and Cassaday, but, if Marvel decide to change artists persistently, please, choose an artist with a somewhat similar style. I get shudder's looking at the hideous teaser images for Indestructible Hulk...

Why can't Bryan Hitch do the entirety of the artistic duties for this series...

Interested to see where the alternate costumed heroes come in. I'm speaking in reference to Cap with an eye patch and all that jazz.

@thanobomb1124:

In some of the promo art released, several heroes had new costumes.

So is it Peter Parker Spider-Man or Doc Ock? How does Superior Spider-Man tie into this if thats Peter Parker?

I want to know why Iron Man looks like he's on the Grid...yes a Tron reference kids...Tony looks like Tron

Series sucks. MASSIVELY! What a huge disappointment... art and writting... First issue was just a reprint of last years point one with 2 or 3 more pages...

probably spoilers for the end of superiour but i dont get how Superiour has a tie in if he is still parker ?

Posted by Darksider555

@kriminal: but im confused since Emma scaned his mind and confirmed it was peter unless he can somehow fool her telepathy....

Posted by dondave

Bryan Hitch's art is amazing

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

More and more interested for Rulk's role with first looks like this to be honest.

Posted by War Killer

I love Hitch's art, but nothing about this series makes me want to read it...

Edited by evilvegeta74

This is very odd, mostly street levelers have survived Ultron. This book is puzzling to me. I wanna know what happened to the big guns in the 616? Street levelers, militants, spies, and Kazar?

BECAUSE MAN, somewhere down the line Tony decided Tron's costumes were cool. (Hope you understood that Tron reference)

Where's Hulk and Thor..?

Posted by Cafeterialoca

I really don't like this book. It seems to just be heroes sitting around in a dark room and flash back about how things suck.

Posted by Sammo21

@deadpool25mm: .....no, I swear to Christ. You obviously don't know what we are referencing...

@SexualLobster: Probably dead. Thor dies all the time at least.

The only thing we got from this weeks issue was more characters, and the knowledge that Captain America actually has a plan. Other then that it was pretty much the same thing as issue number 1. Bendis does tho. Sometimes he takes 2 or 3 issues of beating around the bush. Sometimes it comes off like it's un-needed, but when his stories finally take off they TAKE OFF so I don't really complain that much about it. Plus we still got another issue of Bryan Hitch's art and it was once again sick as hell so who cares?

Posted by Veshark

Hitch's art looks nicer here. He still won't get rid of the annoying white gutters and add lines around panels, but the internal work (especially the Ultron's suburb assault) is very impressive. But the cover looks kinda crappy....overall lack of inks and definition. Also, for some reason, Hitch is never able to draw Wolverine's mask right.

Bendis' writing on the other hand seems to have gotten very mixed responses.

I think I'll hold off for the trade, see what other people think of AoU once it's reached its conclusion, before I consider picking it up.

I thought I read somewhere that this play's before Ock took over, and this is just good old Peter.

Posted by kid Apollo

has anyone confirmed that this story actually takes place in 616? logically that would explain the difference in costumes/powers/and people.

Posted by Arkhamc1tizen

Omg I haven't picked up ultron yet but I just realised that that blue thing is ironman

Posted by Darksider555

@Bokkie: cool but I hav a problem with their comics timeline because they dont acknowlage continuity... for example Wolverine is all over the MU,without any explanation,one moment Spiderman is Pete and the other Ock...

Posted by ripcurl

Really boring so far.

Why start in the middle, with Thor and the Hulk already out of it?

Calling this anticlimactic is an understatement.
