Marvel has shared a few new previews of a couple highly anticipated upcoming series. They are set to join a number of other highly anticipated series that have been teased lately, but we’ve known about these two for a while now.The bound to be awesome Age of Ultron and the brand new series Nova!
Our first preview is a series I have been looking forward to since we first saw the new Nova back in Avengers vs. X-Men and later Marvel NOW! Point One. We have a sneak peek at the first 2 issues to get you stoked for the return of a character I’ve been a fan of since New Warriors. That’s the early ’90s, for the young’uns reading.
[box_dark]Marvel is pleased to present your first look at NOVA #1 from the chart-topping, award-winning creative team of Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness! You met Sam Alexander, the all-new Nova, in the pages of last year’s blockbuster hit Avengers VS X-Men—but what is his secret origin? How is he connected to the Guardians of the Galaxy? And just why is Sam the only one worthy to carry on the legacy of the Nova Corps? These answers reveal shocking secrets about the Marvel Universe and help set the stage for the biggest comic book event of the year![/box_dark]
Nova looks pretty good, and with a stellar creative team that works so well together I expect big things. Loeb and McGuiness have a long history of working together, on titles like Superman/Batman, and Incredible Hulk where they introduced the Red Hulk, who has become an incredibly popular character.

After coming face-to-face with a strange, green skinned alien and talking raccoon from a Super Hero team calling themselves the “Guardians of the Galaxy”, Sam Alexander now has more questions about his heritage than ever before. Who was his father? What is the mysterious helmet he holds? And who in the blue blazes were the Nova Corps? The birth of the most exciting new Super Hero of 2013 continues here![/box_dark]
We’ll also take a look at a story that has been in development since the Heroic Age of Marvel started, back when Brian Michael Bendis was still firmly in place as the Avengers architect. Fans were a little curious as to whether or not we’d see the Age of Ultron when Bendis moved over to the X-Men, but with the recent announcement from Marvel the question has been answered.
[box_dark]Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the explosive first issue of Age Of Ultron #1! This March, enter the darkest days of the Marvel Universe as it’s heroes fight for from the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis (All New X-Men, Avengers VS. X-Men) and Bryan Hitch (Ultimates, Fantastic Four). Evil has triumphed over good and leading this new age is none other than Ultron, the deadly sentient robot created by founding Avenger Hank Pym who turned on his creator to achieve his twisted objective…the utter destruction of humanity. Now, it’s up to the few remaining heroes to band together and find any way to topple their new monarch. Can Wolverine, Emma Frost, Invisible Woman, Taskmaster, Beast, She-Hulk, Luke Cage, Spider-Man, and Moon Knight turn the tide?[/box_dark]

Pretty exciting, and I love the Age of Ultron teasers. This could be a series that drastically changes the course of the Avengers… again… Because they just did that with the Marvel NOW! relaunch of the team. But, you know. Ultron.
Anyways, hope you enjoyed these previews, and we’ll continue to bring you the latest news as soon as it drops!
