While cool looking, I can’t help but think: didn’t Marvel already do this with Age of Apocalypse? And the Amalagam stunt?
Here’s what Brian Michael Bendis told CBR about the event:
“In ‘Age of Ultron,’ we’re confronting one of the legacies of a founding member of the Avengers who created this artificial intelligence, that since its creation has been planning the end of our world. It’s been just a matter of time before he gets smart enough to do it — and ‘Age of Ultron’ is the day he gets smart enough to do it. [T]here’s a big, grand disaster story being told. That’s going to be the fun of it. Overall though, there’s certainly a theme of technology, responsibility and legacy. Any level of Marvel character can bring something into this that could be the greatest thing ever or the worst thing ever.”
