For years the heroes of the Marvel Universe have lived in fear that the artificial intelligence known as Ultron would one day evolve to fulfill its desire to wipe out all organic life and take over the Earth -- that day has arrived. This massive 10-part Marvel Universe-spanning event is brought to you by Eisner award-winning writer Brian Michael Bendis and comics legend Bryan Hitch.

Detailed Plot


Ultron has taken over the world, and left it in ruin, and in an apocalyptic state. Hawkeye is heading to a hideout that belongs to Hammerhead and Owl, and advises a girl to run away whilst heading there, killing many guards in the process. Hawkeye walks in on a couple of goons mistreating a woman, and tells them to leave her, eventually killing them. It's not long before Hammerhead and Owl realise they have an intruder, and when they guess it's an Avenger plan to sell him to the big guy (Ultron). Whilst going through more of their goons Hawkeye finally finds who he's looking for, Spider-Man. Spider-Man has been tortured and can't thank Hawkeye enough but Hammerhead and Owl blast in.

Suddenly a bunch of Ultron's turn up, and demand that all humanoid life evacuate the premises. Owl and Hammerhead aren't happy as they appeared to have a deal with Ultron, but that doesn't stop them from attacking. Hawkeye manages to escape unnoticed with Spider-Man, but Hammerhead and Owl don't appear to be as lucky.

After more thank you's from Spider-Man, Hawkeye leads the way to an underground bunker where a group of heroes are hiding out. He is greeted abruptly by Luke Cage and She-Hulk who aren't happy to see them. Iron Man reluctantly uses tech to establish that they haven't been infected by Ultron, but She-Hulk is still worried in case they were followed. Emma Frost however confirms that they weren't, and Hawkeye is surprised to be thanking her. Hawkeye, and Cage have a mild argument over how they should live, and Hawkeye is upset that the rest have given up. Iron Man explains that they have no plan, and when Hawkeye asks who's fault that is, Iron Man says that Captain America is working on one, but Cap doesn't look to be coping well with the current situation.

The Age of Ultron Has Finally Arrived 0

I have been looking forward to this story for ages. Ever since it was teased in Avengers #12.1 I have been really looking forward to this story, as I'm a huge fan of Bryan Hitch's art, and I love Ultron as a character. I was however disappointed to notice low ratings on this issue, and was dreading how bad it might be. I still however hope the series good overall.PlotIn an apocalyptic future Ultron rules, and the remaining heroes live underground. Hawkeye goes on a mission to rescue Spider-Man, ...

Not so bad 0

There are a lot of good points being made for why people don't like this first issue. But I'm writing this review mainly to help out the minority who actually enjoyed this book.The Art!The GoodMy GOODNESS the art is great! The muted tones and bleak and tattered landscape effectively tells of a dystopian population. Hitch's panel work is great with some great perspective changes within scenes that don't confuse, but add to the scene.The BadThe layout of the panels seems slightly uninspired given ...
