Maybe Marvel is trying to do something about climate change.
That's one possible explanation for why the publisher is recycling the titles of half a dozen, and probably more, of its events from over the years. In the past week, Marvel has announced events titled Planet Hulk and Armor Wars, and before that we found out about Civil War, Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies, Secret Wars, and the slightly retitled Years of Future Past.
On sale throughout April, What If? Age of Ultron is a weekly five-issue series written by Joe Keatinge that takes the central story mechanism of Marvel's Age of Ultron -- what would happen to the Marvel Universe if Hank Pym had never created the malevolent artificial intelligence Ultron -- and applies it to some of the publisher's iconic heroes. What would happen in a world without the Wasp? What would happen in a world without Thor? And so on.
What If? Age of Ultron is particularly notable for its artist roster, which includes Chris Stevens on covers with interiors and variants by talents not typically associated with Marvel titles. Among them, Ming Doyle, Piotr Kowalski, Mico Suayan, Ramon Villalobos, Raffaele Ienco and James Stokoe, whose variant cover for issue #2 you're seeing here for the first time.
While fans got a glimpse of Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum's Minimates plans for the recently wrapped Age of Ultron storyline in the form of Wolverine and a golden Ultron Drone at SDCC 2013, Marvel's revealed four more characters from the event that will soon join the line in one fell swoop. Coming to comic and specialty stores in early 2014 will be a proper Age of Ultron box set packing 2" tall versions of Nicky Fury, Iron Man, new Marvel U resident Angela and a hulking six-armed Ultron.
Good news for fans of robots who can cry: After a long absence, The Vision is returning to comics in the pages of Avengers AI, a new comic set to drop this July from the creative team of Sam Humphries and Andre Araujo.

Following up on a binary code-based teaser image from last week, Marvel Comics has announced Age of Ultron, a 10-issue event series beginning next March. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Bryan Hitch, Brandon Peterson and Carlos Pacheco, the book begins with the villainous robot Ultron, a corrupted creation of Avenger Hank Pym aka Ant-Man, having completely taken over and seemingly killed a good deal of the Marvel Universe. Foreshadowed for years throughout numerous Bendis comics i
