Tom Taylor and Iban Coello’s Dark Ages show off a horrible new look for Marvel’s Vision, Apocalypse, and others in new promotional illustrations.
Readers will see a gruesome new take on Vision, Apocalypse, and others at Marvel’s Dark Age this autumn.
Tom Taylor’s new event (X-Men: red, All-New Wolverine) and artist Iban Coello (Poison, Black Knight: Curse of the Ebon Blade) promises to deliver grim versions of Earth’s mightiest heroes when they “unite against a new threat and fail.” Ryan Stegman’s latest promo art (Poison, King in black) shows us more of what the event will cause for the popular Avengers member, as well as the appearance of the main X-Men villain.

Marvel has already teased how other heroes would fare and the appearance of the new villain, the Unmaker, but here, the Vision seems to have seen better days and more battle than usual. His suit is tattered and torn, his mechanical skeleton and his skull underneath shines through. This terrifying appearance is only highlighted by the gem on his head and his eyes, which radiate energy.
Stegman published the full art in Instagram to promote this new vision of the Vision. “The direction in this case was just to blow up Vision,” he said. “I don’t know the whole story, so I don’t know how we ended up here, but it seemed like an incredible idea.”
Apocalypse, on the other hand, appears to be less damaged by battle and embracing a power similar to DC’s Darkseid. The artwork paints him as a threatening force as he looks at the reader with his hands behind his back.
The urban landscape in both images lies smoking and destroyed, as Vision gazes into a world of crumbling buildings and columns of smoke, the buildings that lie next to Apocalypse remain cracked and burned. Of course, the Marvel Universe has suffered its fair share of damage over the years, even with the recent King in black event that caused the world to be engulfed by symbiotes. However, what makes this event seem different is that there is not a single light on in any of the buildings.
Even if King in black plunged the world into darkness while enshrouded by a symbiote dome, there was still power, as the heroes gathered in lighted bunkers to care for the wounded and formulated a strategy for a new plan using technological communications with others fighting elsewhere. . The world represented in Dark Age It just seems desolate, the world is not darkened because it is covered by the symbiotes, but dark because there is nothing left, no power of any kind.
Dark Age # 1 goes on sale September 1, 2021 from Marvel Comics.
