Vol 2 Road Trip and I got to #5AU and what the frakk?

I get it is an Age of Ultron tie in, but did it happen?

Also, was Age of Ultron any good?

It happened but it then didn't happen.

Age Of Ultron was OK, it probably reads quite well in trade.

Depends on who you ask...
Most people think it was mediocre to shitty as fuck...
But Elijah Snow thinks it's a masterpiece.

It was... different.

Padded.
Parts were nonsensical.

In short, a LOT of missed potential, IMO.

Punchy and Elijah Snow thought Age of Ultron was the best thing ever. Everyone else saw it for the piece of shit it was.

Love the reference to Daleks in issue #6 and Franklin using the wrong word.

No. The first half was a decompressed mess of odd moments that really didn't matter while the second half was an equal mess of compressed moments that would have been more interesting if they would have been given more time to develop instead of being rushed in order to make up for the time that was wasted on the aforementioned first half.

To answer the question "Is Age of Ultron any good," you need only consider:

Yup.

Back when the book was good, too.

(Bedard's run may have had faults, but it was WAY BETTER than Claremont's)

Proof that Wolverine vs. Wolverone is not an inherently bad idea.
