Marvel Promotes Bullying in Skottie Young Age of Ultron Cover

A new variant cover for Age of Ultron shows a child Ultron bullying child Marvel heroes on the playground.



Source: Press Release

Bucking the anti-bullying trend that's currently all the rage in the entertainment industry, Marvel has released a pro-bullying variant cover for Age of Ultron drawn by Skottie Young. The cover shows a child Ultron standing on top of a heap of Marvel heroes, also depicted as children, and giving kid-Hawkeye what we're going to call a sort-of-wedgie with his arrow holster.

We asked Marvel head honcho Joe Quesada for comment on the shocking image, but he asked us if we were "a sissy" and demanded that we hand over our lunch money. We complied, but he still punched us in our stomach and called us a nerd, and told us we had better come back with more money tomorrow.

We are looking into an alternate route we can take while walking to school in the future, and will keep you updated.

Here's the press release:

Am I really the only one curious as to why there is a naked luke cage with, what looks like, a hairy tumor growing out of his head?

I am tired of remaining silent on this matter.

Those variant covers they keep doing are ugly buckets. I hates them.

Skottie Young is such a great talent but I wish he'd do something other than tot-heroes. It's really getting old.

You know what, Mr-Climbing-Up-Onto-His-Fucking-High-Horse? There is no fucking difference between me posting in a thread about a cover I don't like and you posting in the Adi Granov cover thread about one YOU don't like.

So kindly shut the fuck up!

these drawings are a lot cleaner than his old stuff like oz, cable/deadpool covers and things from that era.

when was the last time he drew a cover that wasn't toddlers?

I do like the art but really, enough with them already. They just make me miss Mini Marvels now. :P
