Talk about an explosive reunion. Writer Rick Remender and artist Jerome Opena have worked together before on X-Force, but now they’re re-teaming for an original graphic novel that will force old (hence, Steve Rogers as Captain America and Hawkeye in his prior duds) and new Avengers to work together to take on one of their deadliest and most eternal enemies.
Avengers: Rage of Ultron is an in-continuity OGN announced during Comic-Con International that sees Ultron possibly more powerful than ever thanks to his takeover of the central computer core of Saturn’s moon, Titan. You might remember that as the home of the Eternals and the birthplace of Thanos, meaning that its computers aren’t exactly running Windows 8.
Pushed to the brink by this evolution of Ultron, the heroes must turn to Hank Pym to find out the key to victory — or possibly just survival.
“Coming out of Avengers: Rage of Ultron, there will be long lasting ramifications,” Remender said in an interview with Marvel.com. “It was very important that [this book] be a great self-contained story, but the consequences of it have long reaching effects for not only Ultron, but Titan and Thanos and all the other wonderful pieces that are involved.”
Avengers: Rage of Ultron will include a free code for the digital version of the book, as well as enhanced contact exclusive to the Marvel AR App. Look for it in April 2015 (just in time for a certain movie with a very similar name), but not before you check out a few of Opena’s pages right here.
