Take a look at this preview from Age of Ultron #5, in which pretty much the same stuff that happened in #1 and #2 happens again.

Bunch of robots shooting lasers in a destroyed cityscape? Check.
Heroes standing around looking depressed in a basement somewhere? Check.
And that describes just about every preview we've seen from any Age of Ultron related book, as well as what actually happens in the first two issues that have already been released. It's also what happens in this latest preview, from issue # goddamn 5.
One would think that, by the fifth issue of a ten issue series, the heroes would probably get out of that damn basement and start actually doing something. Maybe that is the shocking conclusion that Joe Quesada insisted he had to draw himself in the final issue. The heroes finally stop moping around and leave the basement, perhaps to get sandwiches or something.
Wait a minute... Is Age of Ultron actually a metaphor for the life of the fanboy?
Here's the press release:
