I didn't read age of ultron when it first came out, and I didn't hear great things about it and it just sounded confusing, at the end of June after the event had been concluded for about a month, my local comic shop was selling a pack of 1-10ai at a discounted price so I picked it up and I really enjoyed it. What did you guys think?
I liked it a lot. I think a lot of the people that complained about it likely didn't really understand Ultron/Vision/Ant-Man's origins. People also kept complaining that they didn't see Ultron, but they just didn't get that Ultron was everywhere. Everything was Ultron that ran on electricity.
I really liked it.
Started out ok, but I felt there was plenty of filler that could have been left out, or sped up. For example, the future bit with the Defenders. I didn't like it, but didn't dislike it. Just don't think it needed to be as long as it was.
I hated it because it was supposed to be an event about "Ultron" who funnily was a back ground character. yes, the title Character was mostly in the background.
"OMG! WOLVERINE IS SO AWSUM HE HAZ TO SAVE DA WORLD!!!!!"
I like Wolverine but making him the Main protagonist in something that has nothing to do with him was just lazy, and even that wasn't written well, it was terrible.
BOOM.POW.RETCON.SAVE TEH WOLRD.BOOM. TIME BREAKS.VERY BAD.BALLSACK.NO.POW.GLACTUS!
that was the whole event.
@theacidskull: i thought wolverine pretty much had to be the main character. He was one of the few characters that would be ok with going back in time and killing hank pym
the fact that they had to go back in time and Kill PYM is stupid.
I thought it started out strong. You had a group of heroes that were fight ing for their lives in a situation that, personally, I think was worse than a Skrull Inavsion. It had a good mix of big time players and more b-list heroes like Moon Knight and She-Hulk. Then a few issues in they started killing off the more minor characters. I didnt really mind because I thought it was a little hiccup that would be redeemed by the Avengers going back (or forward?) in time to kill Ultron! But then: Lol! Nope! Wolverine goez back to kill Pym!!!! #LoneWulf YOLO!
I was really hoping that we would get to see the Avengers and other heroes unify to stop a common enemy, have some time travel hi jinx, and maybe for once have a happy ending. But Wolverine ended up breaking time and space instead... The best at what he does, and what he does is break continuity.
