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!

Why is Wolverine in this comic?

I'll buy it, 'cause I read the stories leading up to it. That being said, it bothers me that Hitch wasn't made a part of the full project. I really dislike it also when the art changes midway through a story.

@ChillinVillain: Well Wolverine is an Avengers, been one for a while now, so he tends to be in stuff that features the Avengers.

Event - it's running for 10 issues.

I'm thinking this is either future, or alt future. Strange that they haven't clarified exactly when its happening.....

Ultron takes over the world and kills every human ever except for Scarlet Witch. Wand says "No more Ultron" and everything is fixed. The end

I prefer the small arcs like this rather than the company wide arcs that get so convoluted the ongoing books really don't have a great bearing outside the mini-series.

On the cover, I see that Ultron has kicked the crap out of Captain America, Iron Man, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Hulk, Red Hulk, Spiderman, Spiderwoman, Hawkeye (? The blond one under Iron Man's knee), Thing, Wolverine, and maybe Valkyrie (under Wolverine)... Any others I didn't see/couldn't figure out?

EDIT: Nevermind about the Hawkeye thing. I see he's in the reflection on Ultron's helmet. Any idea who that blond one may be?

RE-EDIT: Ah, I see it's Thor. Is that maybe Magneto by Wolverine's hand?

Suprised that Hank Pym is nowhere to be seen in an Ultron centric story. He almost always comes into the fray at some point when Ultron is close by.

@CrimsonAlchemist:

Yeah, but Moon Knight seems to be more popular. Taskmaster seems like the most random choise, except for maybe She-Hulk.

You're right. I was going to make a joke about Pym being inside the armor, but now that I look at the helmet, it is a cross between Ultron and Ant-Man. And he can shrink after all. But it could just as easily be controlled by remote. Maybe the madness of Yellow Jacket is back...hm, the armor is golden.

I'm way too tired of event books. Can't we just spend the next 6-7 years doing the occasional crossover story between already established titles?

I think it's alt future, like Old Man Logan...but not that far in the future.

Looking forward to this. :)

I wonder what the tie-in issues will be. I heard that seven titles have tie-ins, Superior Spider-Man and Fantastic Four are, and Avengers isn't. I wonder if FF will have a tie-in, seeing as She-Hulk's on the anti-Ultron team.

I love Ultron, the character looked so amazing in Annihilation when it had 3 pairs of Phalanx-esque eyes.

@ApatheticAvenger:I'm loving this. After all the bashing of Cyclops and Captain America along with the rest of the hero community getting on a high-horse; the Avengers and company are getting their behinds beat by Ultron.

Putting Emma in the team after AvX? I'm looking forward to see that, especially having Wolverine in (yet another) team.

Moonstone under Wolverine? T-bolts/Dark Avengers/whatever-the-team-name-is-now are involved?

I'm excited, I love me some Ultron. This list of people who "might" stop him...that's a crazy list of characters who have no chance of stopping him. I mean, they're all mostly streetlevel.

I'm glad it's just two writers. The whole stable of writers thing for AvX was too much.
