Despite him being a big name at Marvel, I have never been much of a fan of Bendis. It’s not something that I can quite pin down, but something has always seemed off with his writing, at least to me. So when I heard that he was writing the latest event comic for Marvel, I was, shall we say, less than enthused.

So much happened in this issue, yet at the same time, it felt like nothing happened. We are introduced to the titular Age of Ultron, yet we are given no explanation of how things got the way they were, nor any explanation of what is going on. A character goes out and rescues another character, and they then return to their base. That is the entirety of this issues story. Clearly these events are meant to be important, but we have no reason to care other than the fact that we recognize the characters.

I’ve been reading event comics for years, and while I have never been a big fan of them, they at least gave me a reason why I should keep reading. This issue was, all in all, a bore, and I’m not sure that I’m willing to spend $3.99 every other week to see what happens.

Story: 1 - Poor
Art: 3 - Good


  1. Bendis is hit or miss. He does brilliant work sometimes and he does some horrible stuff too. Try All New Xmen or Ultimate spidey they are better than his avengers were. Scarlet is also really good. I think he was pretty famous before he joined marvel with powers and jinx and few other things. His avengers were horrible though in my opinion. He is inconsistent. You just have to roll the dice with him. I havent read this yet but is seems that the more characters he writes in one book the worse he gets and the fewer he writes the better.
