Lots of chatting in circles about not much and really this book has been completely terrible, paced, drawn, executed. I didn't check out any of the tie ins but they must have done something to fill in all the off screen stuff right?
OK. I won't try to change your mind. You didn't like it. That's your right.
But my only observation is this: I'm one of those people who is baffled about what, exactly, anyone would do with a character like Ultron.
Before Bendis ever got to him, it was established that his body is made of Adamantium. His consciousness can be downloaded anywhere. He continues to evolve and learn from every defeat. His goal is to eradicate mankind.
OK. With that premise, I see it this way: You can't punch your way out of this problem. You can't execute an "Assault on Fort Ultron" every single time you see Ultron and pull another victory out of your arse, with no hero ever getting killed.
So, from my point of view, you have two options: You either don't use the character, which is fine by me, or you show the character doing what he was meant to do, show the consequences of that, and then make it so that dystopian future doesn't happen.
Again, I'm not trying to change your mind, or anyone's mind. I'm merely saying that I honestly don't understand what kind of story would make any more sense than what we're reading here, because, point blank: Ultron as we knew it was unbeatable.
