It's X, and I'll be kicking the week off with the second issue of Bendis written Age of Ultron. The first issue wasn't exactly what I was hoping for, however, I am still hopeful that we'll see things pick way up with this issue.
Age of Ultron #2(of 10):
Summary: We get started in San Francisco, where we see destruction similar to last issue and Manhattan. Black Widow(now sporting a massive scar on her face) and Moon Knight are seemingly the only heroes left out there, are working out of one of Nick Fury Sr's safe houses and intend on shoving nuclear weaponry up the metallic ass of Ultron... *shrugs* I just type what I read... From there we head back to New York, where Spider-Man tells the gathered heroes what had happened to him while he was captured by Hammerhead and the Owl. Hint: they taunted him a lot. The heroes are curious as to why Ultron would need mooks like Hammerhead and Owl bringing him somebody like Spider-Man. This issue ends with Captain America finally getting out of the corner and announcing he had a plan.
Thoughts: Yeah, nothing really happened in this comic... We established that Ultron's attack took place in more than New York(at least Washington and San Francisco were also hit), and that Widow and Moon Knight were in San Fran. Spidey told the heroes about Manhattan's destruction, and that he saw a figure in a cape(Ultron in a cape? Strange...) before he was felled. And Cap got up. If you skipped this issue, you honestly wouldn't have missed a single thing. That's not to say this issue was bad, it wasn't, it was just unnecessary.
Score: 7 out of 10.
Get those stinking fleshbags, Ultron!!
