Artificial intelligence bots versus zombies: place your bets. Just one of many showdowns set to occur in Battleworld, the setting for the upcoming new Secret Wars that will forever change the Marvel comic book universe as we know it, Age of Ultron Vs. Marvel Zombies has been announced as a new printed series, with a look at the cover art and preview pages giving us a look at the zombified villains taking on Ultron's army.

A creepy conflict between two forces with no consciences, Age of Ultron Vs. Marvel Zombies will see Ultron's artificial intelligence ranks going up against the rotted flesh of a super-powered living dead legion. On the Battleworld planet, the two rival factions will fight for both territorial supremacy and sole possession of ruling over humanity. Their showdown will occur in a place called No Man's Land, an area people are sent to when punished.

Fans can expect to see Hank Pym (Ant-Man), Jim Hammond (Human Torch), The Vision, and Wonder Woman in the series, which debuts this June from James Robinson and Steve Pugh (All-New Invaders).
