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.
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.
