Art Notes

Tony Stark is a billionaire industrialist and philanthropist, and as Iron Man, the leader of the Avengers. Iron Man, with the assistance from the Avengers, has traveled to New York City to do battle with Earth’s current threat, Ultron. In the shadows of the New York City skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Wasp, Hawkeye, Captain America, Thor, Vision, and the Ant-Man on a flying ant are all prepared to join Iron Man in defeating Ultron. This is a battle that Iron Man and the Avengers will undoubtedly win.
