AGE OF ULTRON TIE-IN
ULTRON RULES OK! The AGE OF ULTRON hits Britain, and Captain Britain hits back with a little help from his friends - including a vacationing Captain Marvel! Fighting a guerilla war in the ruins of London, AGGRO! is a way of life for Avengers UK - but when they might just be the last super heroes left alive, can there still be hope? Or is England dreaming?
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99So this is me checking off the ‘do a UK-based story’ box early on. More on this closer to the time, but pre-order now!How close can I get to the ‘Aggro’ model? Hard to say yet. There will be flavours of it, definitely, as well as hints of the less VIOLENT direction that Captain Britain fans have come to expect. There will also be references to hem-hem IMPORTANT CULTURAL TOUCHSTONES like the ZX Spectrum, Dr Who and that big gold plastic statue of Freddy Mercury. And some of Brian’s supporting cast are back to say hello, as well as some brand new characters who I feel SPEAK TO MODERN BRITAIN oh all right the 1980s.I am replacing the ‘gun vs frock’ debate with GUN VS TUMBLR and it is a war both sides can win! Come and see for yourself in May.
Seeing Al Ewing do Marvel work excites me. You should pay attention to this.
Faiza, Pete and MI:13 plz.

Forever loving Faiza’s expression.

“Oh, fantastic. We’re got an army made up of fairies and Beatles. And we’re fighting H.G. Wells’ Martians and bloody Jack the Rippers…”
Wisdom: Quite British.
Meggan: I’m sorry, Colossus, but you’re confused.
Brian: On two, sweet?
Caption: Meggan and Brian Braddock are the two most physically powerful members of Excalibur.
Being hit by one of them resembles having a large chest freezer dropped on your brain.
Being hit by both is like being punched in the face by god.
Oh, Ellis caption boxes… ♥
