You read that right folks, the long fabled Avengers story arc / event seems to finally be coming to a comic shop near you. How do we know this? Because the House of Ideas sent out this excellent teaser.
Apparently when you enter that lengthy bit of binary code into a translator you get “Age of Ultron” repeated over and over and over again. I know this is a simple and basic example of the ever so classic dangling the fruit maneuver, but it got me more than excited considering that this epic romp has been coming for about two years now. I do find it interesting that this was announced before Brian Michael Bendis departed from the Avengers franchise so one has to wonder his level of involvement now considering his recent embrace of his inner X-Gene.
I know plenty of you don’t know who or what Ultron is and SuperHeroHype was kind enough to through up a simple and concrete blurb to get everyone caught up on this nasty creation:
Ultron was originally created by Hank ‘Ant-Man’ Pym, a robot that quickly became one of The Avengers greatest foes. He is capable of living within computers and technology and after his last ‘resurrection’ in the comics, Iron Man predicted his return would bring about the apocalypse or as he called it the ‘Age of Ultron.’
We’ll find out more as the day progresses but could this be Marvel‘s next big event? Or will this be something small and inclusive to only the Avengers books? What do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.
