As usual, X here, with the first review of the week. And yes, it's going to be Age of Ultron... Ugh. I really have nothing nice to say about this series at this point, this storyline seems like a huge missed opportunity, but whatever. So yeah, here's more Bendis madness.
Age of Ultron #8:
Summary: Iron Man complains about Wolverine killing Hank Pym and wrecking the timeline. Naturally, Wolverine defends his position, even though Iron Man repeatedly points to options Wolverine could/should have taken. While Wolverine is being interrogated, Invisible Woman escapes from her interogation room. The Defenders decide to get Wolvie and Sue themselves, since they wanted to... question them? I guess? It's at that time, the big bad of the world attacks the Stark helicarrier, Morgan Le Fey. Le Fey and her forces lay waste to everything in their path and this one ends with the helicarrier destroyed.
Thoughts: Hey, this issue was leaps and bounds better than the last two! That's not saying I'm actually enjoying this storyline, I'm not. That ship has already sailed. But I did like the fact that Iron Man pointed out so many other options to Wolverine's plan to simply kill Pym. Why not go to a Reed Richards, or a Prof. Xavier, or someone along those lines to deal with Pym? I know, sense in a Bendis comic? Madness. The reveal of Morgan Le Fey as the chief villain with Pym gone was way more Bendis-like, because it made no sense... Then again, Bendis did use Le Fey in one of his storylines, and we know how he hates Avengers stories that he didn't write, so I guess Le Fey's inclusion actually makes perfect sense... Bottom line, this issue was better, but everything is still in a holding pattern, and I have no clue how Bendis fixes his mess.
Score: 7 out of 10.
