Age of Ultron #3 Review

Age of Ultron #3 Review
By: Jay
Years ago,
founding Avenger Hank Pym created the Artificial Intelligence known as Ultron.
Ultron evolved and turned on humanity. The Avengers always managed to defeat
Ultron until now, for now is the Age
of Ultron!

The main group of heroes lead by Captain America find out what Captain America’s plan is
from last issue. Not everyone agrees with the plan but most are willing to do
anything because they are tired of hiding from the thing that took so much from
them. As the heroes discuss Cap’s plan they decide that Luke Cage and She Hulk
will be the ones to carry it out. We meet a third group based in Chicago consisting of Taskmaster, Black Panther
and the Red Hulk, who seem to have a plan of their own. The issue ends with
Luke Cage and She Hulk who are being escorted by the Ultron drones to their
master, and the last page leaves both Luke Cage and the reader shocked.

Brian Michael Bendis is building up a solid story here, and with
issue 3 we learn a little bit more about what has happened to the heroes since
the Ultrons took over the world. The story is giving me just enough with each
issue to keep me coming back for more.
While the story is steadily growing the art of Bryan Hitch isn’t
as sharp as it usually is. Some of Hitch’s faces and expressions don’t fit the
characters and the scenes. This is most obvious in the first few pages of the
issue with Luke Cage. There are also some inconsistencies with details, like
when shown with the group Cap’s costume has big holes in it, but when we are
closer to Cap in those areas his costume is undamaged.
If you’re not following Age
of Ultron I recommend you pick up
the main series and give it a try. Now that you know what I think of this
issue, let us know what you think about it in the comments.
