Age of Ultron Vs Marvel Zombies #1
Age of Ultron Vs Marvel Zombies #1

I remember a few months back, looking through Previews and seeing that one of the unique things coming out of Secret Wars was Age of Ultron Vs Marvel Zombies. Who wouldn’t grab this on principle alone? My imagination began to run wild with endless waves of robot vs zombie action. Robots vs zombies, there is no way this couldn’t be great. So I thought…

Looks like something COULD happen here...

My biggest gripe with Age of Ultron Vs Marvel Zombies #1 was the disturbing lack of robots fighting zombies. I mean, it’s in the title! What gives, Marvel, what gives?!? Instead there is maybe a page or two where we see some zombies, we see some Ultrons show up, cut to something else. Look guys, if I’m buying a title called Age of Ultron Vs Marvel Zombies, I’m buying it for the sheer enjoyment of seeing zombies and robots fight. Going in, I’m not expecting much more than that. This should be a fun and exciting slugfest the likes of which we could only see in Battleworld!!! Instead, it’s just kind of boring and slow. Not too much going on; I feel as though a landscape and tone are set here only to abandon and not really do a whole lot with them. Oh, what could have been.

Soak it up, you won't see much of this.

We are left as a band of heroes finds their last hope to defeat the zombies and Ultron for good. Yeah! So we have that going on. I’m going to tough this one out, so I’ll see you soon for issue #2. What did you guys think of Age of Ultron Vs Marvel Zombies #1? Slobber-knocker or snooze-fest? Are you for robots or zombies? Think we’ll see them fight? We’ll find out next time!
