Age of Ultron (abbreviated AU) is a 10-issue limited series comic book crossover event published by Marvel Comics, that involves the return of the Ultron and his conquest of the earth. The event is scheduled to be published between March and June 2013 and to feature a storyline by Brian Michael Bendis. Artist Bryan Hitch is scheduled to provide the art for issues one through five, and Brandon Peterson for issues six through eight. A third artist, Carlos Pacheco, has also been confirmed as an artist for the miniseries. Marvel has stated that all art for the series was completed before it was solicited, ensuring deadlines are met. They have also stated that there will be no more than ten tie-ins to the four-month event.

This Spring, Marvel NOW faces it’s first major threat with the beginnings of ALL NEW X-MEN writer BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS’S AGE OF ULTRON event.

For years, the heroes of the Marvel Universe have lived in fear that the artificial intelligence known as Ultron would one day evolve to fulfill its desire to wipe out ALL organic life and take over the Earth.

Well, Third Eye Faithful: that day has arrived. In this 10-issue Marvel Universe-spanning event, the AGE OF ULTRON will threaten every living thing in the Marvel Universe. Heroes, villains, and everyone in between? They all will have to ally with one another to avoid the cold, sterile future that awaits them in the AGE OF ULTRON.

All of these tie-ins should have "AU" after the number, as they are not the regular issues. They're also done by different creative teams than the main books.

So the AU issues will kinda be like point issues except for a story arc rather then a jumping on point?

For example, will there be a "Wolverine and the X-Men #27" as well as a "Wolverine and the X-Men #27AU"?

It seems so.

By the way, I'm yawning at yet another "Universe-shattering" event from Marvel. Bet it will be a dud like AvX. The universe has already been "shattered" so much, there ain't anything left to shatter. :P

On the bright side; they put Bendis in charge of it and I usually enjoy everything he does.

The first issue, while it didn't explain anything, was interesting enough that I'll keep reading.

Just read the first issue & I'll have to agree with Shinrai this time. :P

You are dropped straightaway in the middle of a battle-torn dystopian future (? Present), that you begin thinking if this isn't an Elseworlds tale? If given the liberty, this story is quite, quite (no typo, I wrote it twice) similar to Hickman's first story arc in the current Avengers book, where we get our heroes all lost & torn by Ex Nihilo & group. So, on a basic level, the themes are the same. This makes me conclude that there is no real novelty in the story, it's just the presentation that has been changed.

But still, as Shin says, this is interesting enough to be read. I give this 3/5 for the first issue.

Yeah, it doesn't work for me neither. I tried with lower case au, too.

Maybe because it's a text but as I see it filtered as a number (is greater, is smaller, is in the range are there and not the contains, etc.)?

Something about the letters in the number field that keeps it from grabbing the "AU" issues,

I just made a smartlist with the rule "alternate series > is > Age of Ultron.

Another option would be to remove the AU part in the list and just delete the extra comics from the list.

Here's one I did from a list I found on the interwebz. It's presumably in a reading order of some kind. You'll notice Indestructible Hulk 14 & 15 are out of order. Presumably this is intentional because they were published out of order based on their story names. I'm not sure, though because it's part of the Agent of Time series so they may have put the story naming out of order as sort of a timey-wimey thing Hulk had to deal with. Not sure.

I have a smart list that does nothing more than filter on publisher = Marvel, but it should work on a generic Library of all books as well.

It filters the annoying issues that aren't in the alternate series Age of Ultron (so Fantastic Four 5AU is in there, but not plain #5).
