Review: Age of Ultron #7
In an attempt to defeat Ultron two Marvel Heroes take it upon themselves to create an all-new Marvel Universe. But is the one they have created better or worse than the one they left behind? The event of the year just got INSANE!!
Yes, last issue finally kicked this Marvel event to a point where I no longer could make fun of it. In one page, this event got “insane.” I’d stop reading now if you haven’t read the previous issue and don’t want to know some of those details.
Wolverine has killed the creator of Ultron, no more Hank Pym. It was a hell of a moment and not something I though would have gone down quite the way it did. This issue begins the aftermath.
Wolverine and Sue Storm head back to the present after their action, but the world isn’t quite the same. That cover says it all, it’s not much of a spoiler. Earth isn’t the same, the Kree/Skrull War clearly happened, but didn’t go down the way we know it did. That’s the first thing in a world without Hank Pym.
Captain America is more battle hardened, Star Lord is on Earth, the Thing is beat up, the Wasp is now Captain Marvel and Cyclops is now Cable. Things have turned bananas and thus pretty damn cool. Everything is on the table now.
What we now have is a clean slate. We don’t know what’s going to happen or what to expect, and what’s happened to the team that went to the future? This second phase of this event is finally what I wanted and was expecting from the beginning. We have excitement and a quicker pace, things missing from the first five issues.
It’s taken a bit, but Age of Ultron is finally at a point I can recommend it.
