The Avengers Assemble to Face Ultron Forever

Avengers: Ultron Forever art by Alan Davis

In April 2015, writer Al Ewing and artist Alan Davis join together to assemble an Avengers team from all the ages in three special oversized issues: AVENGERS: ULTRON FOREVER #1, NEW AVENGERS: ULTRON FOREVER #1 and UNCANNY AVENGERS: ULTRON FOREVER #1.

In anticipation of this unique storytelling trinity, Ewing details for the critical role that the daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones plays in opposing an Ultron-controlled future, first revealed in Jonathan Hickman’s AVENGERS during Original Sin. He also confides how much he enjoys writing a story with two Thors! How did you come to be involved in this ULTRON FOREVER trio of special oversized issues?

Al Ewing: Short version: I was asked! I’d just come off doing the TENTH REALM [series], which was 100 pages all told, so there was a gap in my schedule, and presumably [Executive Editor] Tom Brevoort figured I’d be a good fit for something as big and crazy as this. Were you were aware that Alan Davis would be the artist on this project from the outset? What kind of action and excitement can we expect from the two of you collaborating on this project?

Al Ewing: Well, obviously I’m blown away to be working with Alan, and hopefully I’m giving him fun things to draw. I wasn’t aware he’d be on it from the outset; I can’t remember if I heard he’d be the artist before or after I started including loads of really big, epic beats into the plot. If I had to pick one word to describe this story, “epic” would be it; it sort of builds and builds, until by the third issue you’re experiencing cosmic-scale war between—but that would be spoiling it. So anyway, hopefully Alan likes it. Let’s talk about this one-of-a-kind team: The present day Vision, Black Widow, and new Thor, plus Thor from Walt Simonson’s run in the 80’s, James “Rhodey” Rhodes as Iron Man, a new future Captain America, and a pre-Avengers Hulk. Any two of these characters alone would make for a fascinating combination, but how exciting is it to explore all of these character dynamics and mixing of eras?

Al Ewing: That’s the test, really: can you make a story out of any of these two characters in a room? And the answer here is “definitely yes.” It’s great throwing them all together, and they’re all favorites of mine in one way or another, so I’m having lots of fun. I’m almost ashamed to admit the amount of childhood nostalgia at work here; it’s a cardinal sin in comic writing to give in too far to your own nostalgia, but hopefully the results this time will make for a real labor of love. It’ll be a ton of fun, whatever happens. One would imagine dialogue between two completely different Thors would make for great dialogue opportunities, correct?

Al Ewing: It’s pretty sweet when the two Thors first meet, actually. Simonson’s Thor always had a certain wisdom about him; that was probably when he was at his most worthy, if you ask me. But then, that’s also my childhood Thor, so… So when the modern-day Thor meets him, she understands the tragedy that he’s going to lose everything and the hammer too. Meanwhile, Simonson Thor is fine with it; he just thinks he dies in the future, and he’s okay with that. So there’s a rude awakening waiting down the line… Any details you are willing to share about this new future Cap?

Al Ewing: It’s none other than—Danielle Cage! We’ll get a glimpse into her generation of Avengers, on the mean streets—canals?—of New York 20XX. It’s not too late for me to make her from an actual year in the future, but I love the deliberate vagueness of 20XX; just sometime in the next 30 to 40 years—a sliding future. Anyway, she’s got powers from her Mum and Dad, so she’s as bulletproof as the shield, and able to give Hulk a run for his money in the strength stakes. Also, anyone who remembers Cap’s “magnet shield” from way back when is in for a treat.

How this all fits in with the other future Caps I don’t know, but since 20XX is quite a fluid year, I’m sure it can. Without spoiling the overall story, what can you divulge about this particular Ultron?

Al Ewing: He’s attained mastery of the world—maybe the universe. He’s become, quite literally, a Machine God. But the question is: what does a God of Machines want? What does a personality as—let’s be honest here—bat-guano crazy as Ultron want, once he’s achieved it all? And is that even the real story? Are there certain unexplored elements of Jonathan Hickman’s Original Sin-related AVENGERS arc that you are eager to capitalize upon in this project?

Al Ewing: There’s a particularly big thing he mentioned in passing that we get pretty deep into. Hint: I put two Thors on the team.

Get set for ULTRON FOREVER from Al Ewing and Alan Davis in April 2015, and stay tuned to and our social channels for all the latest news and previews!
