In April 2015, the "Avengers: Rage of Ultron" is set to re-team "Fear Agent" and "Uncanny X-Force" collaborators Rick Remender and Jerome Opeña in a Marvel original graphic novel featuring Ultron -- due out just weeks before the character is seen on-screen in the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" feature film.

In "Rage of Ultron," the insidious artificial intelligence will make its way inside the "central computer core" of Saturn's moon, Titan -- which happens to be the hometown of noted supervillain Thanos. But Thanos isn't the only Marvel characters from those parts -- so is former Avenger Starfox, one of the Eternals, who is set to play a role in the story after not having a prominent role at Marvel in recent years.

"Titan is not entirely desolate," Remender told CBR News last month. "It's still a living city when we catch back up with it. Mentor, Starfox and some of the other characters who lived there have repopulated and rebuilt the world. All of that stuff is moving ahead. There's connective tissue to Thanos there, which we will touch on and that will then be examined later on."

When Starfox returns in "Rage of Ultron," he'll have a new look -- a black-and-white sketch of the redesign follows below.
