Age of Ultron Deets Revealed

Marvel revealed more information about the upcoming Age of Ultron event from "The Great One" Brian Bendis!



Source: Marvel Liveblog

Marvel held another Next Big Thing conference call today, part of a series of calls to which The Outhouse is never invited. However, for those of us who are not ass-kissing corporate megasites, Marvel helpfully let's us follow along with their live blogs. The subject of today's call: Age of Ultron, which was teased last week with an image containing binary code which translated to "Age of Ultron."

The event will be a 10 issue limited series running from March to June of next year, which means we will get at least two issues every month. "The Great One" Brian Bendis will be writing, and art will be handled by Brian Hitch, at least for five issues, at which point the strain of producing comics on time will be too much to handle, and Carlos Pacheco and Brandon Peterson will join the art team. Bendis actually "blamed" Hitch for the fact that the series was first teased over a year ago but not solicited until now, saying that they wanted to wait until Hitch was finished drawing his parts. Hitch is reportedly recovering from drawing the five issues in a resort hospital in Bermuda, where topless island girls are massaging his hands.

According to Bendis, the series will feature Ultron taking over the Earth from the first issue, and will star the entire Marvel Universe. Though the series began in Bendis' Avengers book, The Great One says that he always intended the book to be a "massive, line-wide event that disrupts the stories in every other book while forcing readers to purchase a minimum of sevety-three tie-in issues of books they would never normally read, such as She-Hulk." (paraphrased)

The story takes place in the current, present-time Marvel Universe, and some heroes will not survive Ultron's initial assault. There is no word yet on whether all of the heroes to bite it will be minorities, as is usually the case in Marvel's books, but Luke Cage, The Falcon, and Northstar have all reportedly taken out big life insurance policies.

Bendis also teased that only he knows how the event will end, and that he has kept this information from even the artists. "Na na na na na," he said, reportedly. Meanwhile, Bendis's new personal assistant, Rich Johnston in a Fake Mustache, has been missing since this morning, and, coincidentally, Bleeding Cool is promising a big scoop this afternoon.

The first issue of Age of Ultron will hit comic stores in March 2013.

There will be tie ins.

3:19 UltimateKidNova:
Two issues in May, two in June, an epilogue to follow. There will be about six to seven tie-ins.

3:20 UltimateKidNova:
There will be Fantastic Four and Superior Spider-Man tie-ins in March.

3:20 UltimateKidNova:
To clarify, six to seven tie-ins in total, most one-shots, a couple two-three issue limited series.

3:20 UltimateKidNova:
The tie-ins will fit into the numbering of the ongoing series, but have AU after them, ala Point One issues.

Oh well, I should probably post them more often then. You and TC are getting better and better at the news articles.

Although Ultron took out my laptop and my online time is a bit limited right now, I'm on a loaner. I should probably get back to listing all these chocodiles on Amazon.

(I don't really have any chocodiles, sorry)

Likely going to pass. Not really interested in yet another bi-weekly event so soon.

I think Bendis has been building up to this for awhile. Remember that Avengers arc where the Avengers of the present joined the Next Avengers in the future to fight Ultron/the Destroyer with Kang... and Ultron let them win? Yeah, that might be important.

Thinking this will mess with the timeline somehow... or at least relate to all the time travel shenanigans.

Ultron is an absolute fuck up of a character.

I'm a bit confused by the wording. Will we see Ultron take over the world from the first issue, or will he already have taken over the world by the time the series started? If it's the latter, I'm already getting a serious Final Crisis vibe from this.

If that's the case, I'd prefer Kang be the main focus. He's a better character anyway.

On the plus side you'll be able to skip the first uneventful 9 issues and wait for the quick and convenient wrap-up in issue #10 by the phrase "no more robots" :lol:
