What If this comic was actually better than the real AoU? I was not a fan of AoU(If you listen to The Spinner Rack you do grin emoticon ), but I love What If’s. Nothing better than getting a story retold from a different angle. So for all of us who read AoU this is definitely different. Ultron slays all the Avengers but Hank Pym. Pym fights on to try and defeat his worst creation. Ultimately Hank’s fight is all for naught as it seems Ultron has been letting him live. He has been toying with Hanks mind, and his body. Hank is his worst nightmare come true, he’s an Ultron. Whoa…..sucks to be Hank, but not for us the reader. We get a uncompromising take on AoU when Ultron is indeed master of all,even humanities last hope. Now I do have a complaints, this is a 5 issue series with no lead for the next issue. This was all Hank. Does this mean we are getting a different hero issue issue? Essentially a five issue series of one shot AoU stories. Not sure what’s up next, but I’m in.
