Marvel is pleased to announce Uncanny Avengers #8AU from the blockbuster team of Rick Remender, Gerry Duggan & Adam Kubert! This May, the Uncanny Avengers must band together and make their way throughout this new dystopian world. But when The Apocalypse Twins and Kang are involved, will they make it out of the Age of Ultron in one piece? And when Havok and Rogue set off to save the Morlocks, what secret will Rogue unearth about the Twin’s hidden past?

"We’ve been setting up the role of Apocalypse, the Apocalypse Twins in the Marvel Universe, and with this issue readers get their first in-depth look at them AND a MAJOR reveal in regards to Kang's involvement in it all," explained Remender. "It also hints at a big future romance we're developing. Do not miss this issue."

With the robotic revolution in full force, no fan can miss how Age of Ultron will ultimately change the Marvel Universe leaving no hero or villain unscathed!

"When Rick first told me about the Uncanny Avengers I was floored - it's such a fun book with so many threads are being woven together. Fans are only starting to see the hints of where this run is going," explained Duggan. "Age Of Ultron asks one of the greatest questions fans have been wondering for decades, what if Ultron won?! And throughout the event, people are going to love seeing these dominoes...and characters fall. The story I’m cooking up with Rick and Adam is a fun, but important story that marries two timelines, and I'm just thrilled to be a part of it in some small way."

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to your local comic shop and reserve a copy of Uncanny Avengers #8AU!

So Kang is going to fight Ultron too...

Off topic: If there is one classic villain that I think seriously needs a redesign that would be Kang.

this is all speculation but im guessing one of them is arch angels kid and the other is the age of apocalypse wolverine and jean greys kid the title is ending anyways and from the last issue it looks like shell get the apocalypse power. either way this is gonna be fun considering how much things are changing from the age of ultron covers its probably an alternate universe story i love those.

gorgeous cover by Cheung. pity to have to open it up only to discover Kubert interiors.

I'm not surprised that Kang is involved. Remember the first arc when they relaunched The Avengers in 2010??
marvel72 - 2/8/2013, 1:01 PM
maybe it'll feature maestro as well.

If he's fighting against Ultron it would be because he feels Earth is his to conquer.
