But in order to make sure history continues as normal and Pym doesn’t use the failsafe too soon, he has to make himself forget. How the heck is going to do that? It’s not explained here, and we’re not even sure that he’s succeeded.
If you don't know the original story, once Ultron became self aware he attacked and overcame Pym. Ultron then used an early encephalo-ray to make Pym forget the encounter. Pym later used a memory recaller device he created to return his memories of said encounter.
So, my guess is that Pym probaly built the encephalo-ray into Ultron for the purpose of making him forget.
Which could mean that because of the time tampering, the menace that will be/is/was Ultron isn't Pym's fault but rather Wolverines. After all, we don't know that Wolverine wasn't there in the original timeline.

And what happens if someone were to discover the skeleton of the dead Wolverine in the present? How does the survivor explain that? There have been a lot of rumours swirling around that Marvel are actually planning to kill off Wolverine, so this issue could be the first step in that direction. There’s a lot to wrap up in #10 of this series, and I’m excited to see what goes down, how the hell does Pym stop this, what does Angela have to with it? Will Wolverine actually die? Man, I think even some of the haters may be excited really. Go on, admit it, this is a safe place.
I'd rather see Wolverine tried, conicted and sentenced to 1359 (or however many people he's murdered) consecutive life sentences.
Another paradox - And how does Pym explain his guts and arms being slashed?
