Who’s ready to get knee deep in some Marvel Avenger’s action? Specifically, some Avengers versus Ultron action. Especially since those new images of Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Hawkeye, and Ultron in the next live action Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, have recently surfaced online. And what better way to immerse yourself in that world than by reading the source material?!…Well, a variation of the source material.
Marvel’s got just the right dosage of what you need to feed that Avengers/Ultron fix that you’ve been craving, fanboys, fangirls, and everyone in between!
“This April, the Marvel Universe gets turned upside down in WHAT IF? AGE OF ULTRON #1 – the first issue in an explosive weekly limited series, from rising star writer Joe Keatinge and an assembly of the industry’s hottest artists!
In the New York Times Bestselling Age of Ultron, a time-travelling Wolverine killed Hank Pym before he could create the world-conquering robot Ultron. But what would the world look like if a different founding Avenger had been killed instead? Each issue of WHAT IF: AGE OF ULTRON imagines a cataclysmic alternate universe without one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!”
Marvel is speculating what would happen if Wasp had been killed instead of Pym. We’ve already seen Pym go crazy before, donning suits such as the Yellowjacket persona and striking down his wife, Janet. In an alternate universe where she’s dead, this passionate man could very well go flying off the handle once again. Or how about Captain America? Sure, he wasn’t technically and original founding member before he was found in the ice, but he’s still the Cap with a Capital C: Captain, Commander, Chief…eh…you get it! We’ve seen the Avengers step up and push forward after losing their leader before; but what if the time traveling somehow backfired and caused someone like Captain America to have never existed? The poster boy of freedom for the team, never to pick up the vibranium shield! And that goes for Iron Man, Thor, Hulk; this is “intense…like camping.” (**cricket chirp**)
In the words of the almighty Deadpool (VERY NSFW):
Anything could happen, y’all! And it will happen in WHAT IF: AGE OF ULTRON #1! Available at your local comic book retailer April 2nd, 2014!
