@sparty-dbq: I think that's Johnny Storm.

Also, I can just picture a robotic Stewie Griffin-esque voice coming out of Lil'Ultron saying "VICTORY IS MINE!"

I'm actually looking forward for this Rugrats cover fad to stop. The first couple were neat and interesting butI think it is has run it's course. It's probably because I prefer realostic art that these baby pics don't appeal to me.

OOOOOOH SO CUTE I CAN'T STAND IT!!!!!

No, but seriously, WTF!? I mean, Young has talent and all, but this shitty childish covers had to stop now, who is this for anyway? I mean, I belive I'm the average comic book reader and I don't like this cute covers, don't find them funny, don't find them original (maybe the first two were kind of original but that was it) and I'm not going to buy them. Not that I would buy any of the other alternate covers anyway, but I would at least think it twice if another artist did them and they weren't the same cute-Burton-wannabe crap every single time.

Pretty much agree with this. Just don't see the point myself. Love his art, but is this aimed at getting little kids to buy the comic, only to find that the content inside probably isn't for littlies? Would love to have seen Young's take on Siege, when Sentry ripped Ares in half. Here, kiddie kiddie kiddies... come see the nice man eviscerated... :)

It's weird, Slott said It's still Peter Parker for Age of Ultron on twitter but Superior gets his own tie-in book...

Oh yes. I'm in. But it would be a 100% better if Wolverine was out of the picture because, seriously, does he have to be in everything? How much time before he starts appearing in all of DC comics too...

Emma and Susan working together, more than just interesting.

Baby Thor's eyes are look funny to me. Its Baby Ultron defeating baby Marvel heroes so he can get all the good toys. Either that or the baby Marvel heroes were being to rough so he fought back.

I say we call in Stewie Griffin to even the odds now from the awesomeness of that cover.
