Avengers A.I.: Marvel’s New High-Tech Response Unit is Online

In its latest foray into futurism, Marvel Comics has added another to its many Avengers titles: Avengers A.I. This group of Avengers is brought together as a sort of high-tech special ops unit aimed squarely at technological threats. In the course of the first issue, the reader encounters such futurist subjects as nanotech, the notion of technological lifeforms having at least some claim against arbitrary destruction (a springboard to the issue of technological personhood, which I have written about a bit), and the anticipation of the arrival of a technological Singularity.
