In Age of Ultron #1, a group of heroes led by a depressed Captain America mope around a dank basement! In Age of Ultron #2, a group of heroes led by a depressed Captain America mope around a dank basement, and Captain America has a plan! In a preview for Age of Ultron #5 we saw last week... a group of heroes led by a depressed Captain America mope around a dank basement. WTF?
Well, folks, things are about to change, because we just received a preview for Age of Ultron #6 from Marvel Comics, and it looks like the heroes have finally left the basement. Still no appearance from Ultron himself though. It is confirmed that Angela from Spawn will make a goddamn appearance in this comic, but we still have our doubts about Ultron, whom the event is named after.
Ah well, compared to some of "The Great One" Brian Bendis's other work, the pacing here is practically Silver Age, we suppose. I imagine the battle we see in the pages below will play out for another ten issues, interspersed with scenes of the characters having lunch. Then the whole thing will have some super controversial, internet-breaking ending, which is so top secret only Joe Quesada and all the readers of Bleeding Cool will know about it before it hits stores.
Here's the press release:
