Marvel Announces What If: Age of Ultron Miniseries

The original Age of Ultron had its fair share of detractors. Narrative problems, pacing and overly detailed character stories turned away some fans even though the miniseries was commercially successful. This time around, Marvel is looking to turn everything on its head by introducing an alternate universe type of scenario. Written by Joe Keatinge (Marvel Knights: Hulk, Morbius: The Living Vampire) and featuring multiple different artists (including a variant cover by Ming Doyle!) this series shows Marvel’s hopes to bring a bit of fun back to all the seriousness.

[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]

History is Re-Written This April in What If: Age of Ultron!

 JANUARY 22, 2014—If you thought the Age of Ultron turned the Marvel Universe on its head, you won’t believe what will happen in What If: Age of Ultron, a mind-bending  five-part series from Marvel Comics! They say one person can truly make a difference, and that statement couldn’t ring truer for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. So what if another founding Avenger had died in the Golden Age of Heroes instead of Hank Pym? Could the reality we know endure without one of its strongest pillars? The short answer is—NO!

 Each issue of What If: Age of Ultron explores a Marvel Universe without one of it’s greatest champions. Imagine—an Armor Wars without IRON MAN! A RAGNAROK without THOR! A country without CAPTAIN AMERICA! Written by rising star Joe Keatinge (Marvel Knights: Hulk, Morbius: The Living Vampire) and an assembly of tomorrow’s hottest artists, What If: Age of Ultron hits hard with its twisted takes on the Marvel Universe!

Was the Age of Ultron truly the darkest reality that the Avengers could endure? Find out this April, as Marvel burns the rulebook in What If: Age of Ultron!
