COMICS: Hank Pym Is The Last Avenger Standing In WHAT IF? AGE OF ULTRON #1 Preview

We already know that the only thing Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron will have in common with the critically panned comic book of the same name is its title, but if you're interested in seeing more of the titular villain before then, then check out this preview of What If? Age of Ultron #1?

• In Age of Ultron, a time-travelling Wolverine killed Hank Pym before he could create the world-conquering Ultron.
• What would the Marvel Universe look like if another founding Avenger had been killed instead?
• A world without the Wasp brings a world where Hank Pym created an Ultron even more heinous than the one we know!

Why does he look like Iron Man's Suitcase armor from IM2. That looks dumb.
DrRockit13 - 3/28/2014, 6:56 AM
OH and First

how about this for a "what if"

what if? the russo's had directed captain america the first avenger.

what if? marvel stops making unnecessary comics that is irrelevant.
TheClemster - 3/28/2014, 7:11 AM
what if? I kept my pants on at work

Is the Age of Ultron arch a bad read? Is it really critically panned? I planned on reading it before seeing the film.

If the MCU Hank Pym has zero to do with Ultron, Marvel sure is wasting an opportunity to separate the mythology of the 2 characters.
imnotwearinghockeypants - 3/28/2014, 7:19 AM
What if? Marvel characters who died remained dead? All Marvel comics pages would be blank!
Enphlieuwince - 3/28/2014, 7:26 AM
PsychoSidTheSloth Excellent posts as usual! That first Wasp pic is especially spank bankable.

@DrRockit13: Since the helmet looks like Iron Man too seems to me that Ultron aquired Stark technology to evolve.. seems pretty obvious to me

What ifs are hilarious. Anyone remember what if? Seige. That was hysterical, venom actually eats spidey.
TheClemster - 3/28/2014, 7:32 AM
@ sid

you are an inspiration to us all
Darth258 - 3/28/2014, 7:36 AM

lol seriously, if dead characters remained dead in every comic-book industry i don't think we'd have any more comics by now. That or we'd have a ton of replacements.
TheClemster - 3/28/2014, 7:39 AM
@ sid

you should be a teacher ...
TheClemster - 3/28/2014, 7:44 AM
Yeah I think it actually was one of your user names :)
Omega - 3/28/2014, 7:51 AM
This is how Ultron should look like in movie!

"Cap's reel was the first human face I have seen in over 9000 days..."
I see what you did there Marvel.

"Is the Age of Ultron arch a bad read? Is it really critically panned? I planned on reading it before seeing the film."

AoU comic has zero influence on the movie, they just took the title. AoU is not a bad read but it's not a great read aether.

@ Gusto

I was surprised you diodn't placed this sooner lol

I am sure you made that pic and actually saved it on your pc :)
adamcawa - 3/28/2014, 8:12 AM
@Mazoku you can find the entire Age of Ultron story on youtube

However, it is basically a nonsensical, hard to follow, and ridiculously unbelievable (even for an alternate reality storyline). They also have some gaping plot holes that I'll mention without trying to provide spoilers. Wolverine and Sue Storm are a paradox, for one.

TheClemster - 3/28/2014, 8:27 AM
@ Yoss

TheClemster - 3/28/2014, 8:41 AM
Oh my dear lord this guy needs consultation

Nigrutin - 3/28/2014, 8:53 AM
Is that Ultron/Ironman some kind of hint ?
Dustellar - 3/28/2014, 9:36 AM
@Nigrutin No, because Hank Pym create him even in this "What If?"

"A world without the Wasp brings a world where Hank Pym created an Ultron even more heinous than the one we know!"
ScionStorm - 3/28/2014, 11:58 AM
Reading the Age of Ultron comic is a complete waste of time. Complete.
ScionStorm - 3/28/2014, 12:00 PM
Yossarian, that's the perfect boy for Miley. They should go out.
xcan - 3/28/2014, 9:07 PM
How can they do a "What if" on a "What if"?

Did that abomination of a series affect the current 616? For me it didn't seem to, but I'm not a regular Avengers reader.

It was a crude, quickly made series so Marvel could steal the "Age of... " designation from Fox-X-Men. Nothing more, nothing less.

What's more insulting is the fact that they stole it for the name and won't even respect the material that they wrote. Fcckin lame Mickey, fcckin lame.
ThePowerCosmic - 3/28/2014, 10:50 PM
Age of Ultron was a good read. Doesn't deserve all the "we hate everything Marvel does because their popular now" typical fanboy criticism. Wasn't the most amazing arc but it was entertaining. Infinity was far better though IMO.

What If: Ultron Ran a Successful Shawarma Business Instead of Trying to Conquer the World?

Now THIS would be a fun read!!
