    We really don't have any hard evidence that he actually killed himself which would be a lot harder to do in the quick time frame they had.
    That's true, I wonder if he may have kept him alive or something? The time frame is what bothers me the most. Nitro fried him in one issue to almost nothing during Civil War and he recovered but I can't imagine what another Wolverine would be able to do to permanently kill himself.

    Why does he need to "buy" heroes from the villains when he has already conquered everything? doesn't make sense and doesn't seem very Ultron like.
    why? because there only a handful of characters Bendis can write. and he reuses ideas constantly. this was probably an idea he didn't get to do with the Hood (the Owl, Count Nefaria, or the Kingpin). that's why Ultron is acting so out of character. he did this "computer virus" stuff in his she-Ultron arc. read his Guardians of the Galaxy long enough and I bet you see some familiar territory covered there, as well.

    I'm starting to think the Bendis Moon Knight series about that Ultron connection, was a missing link to the story Bendis wanted to tell in 2012, but couldn't. As it is, the MK series came after AU 10, after Avengers #12.1, so the MK series ends up as an aftermath of the Ultron War, where instead of villains getting heroes and selling them to Ultron, villains (Mr Hyde) are getting Ultron and selling them to villains (Count Nefaria). And in this case, MK eventually gets a hold of the Ultron head and gives it to Tony who puts it in Avengers Tower.

    The interesting thing is, as I am placing the MK series after Avengers Assemble # 6, (where Avengers Tower is rebuilt), that Tony is still warning that Ultron is out there still planning and will attack some time in the future. So we are left with the prospect that Stark knows Age of Ultron still occurs in Marvel NOW, despite Ultrons defeat way back in Avengers #12.1. It is quite intriguing.

    Another thing worth noting about Avengers Assemble # 6 is that the Elders of the Galaxy took Thanos as their prisoner, and that the Badoon declared war on Earth at the end. So this all points to the Infinity Event coming up, and the events in GOTG 0.1 - 3.

    So, let me get this straight... 4.5 Stars... For this piece of shit... Are you fucking kidding me?!

    It's official, CBR takes bribes from Marvel. There goes their credibility...

    I honestly didn't mind issues #1 - "9.9" when I re-read it. The last few pages of issue ten ruined the entire thing, it should have ended after the pages within Avengers #12.1 when they destroyed Ultron. Sue Storm and Wolverine really shouldn't have been in existence if they avoided the Age of Ultron timeline and the last few pages where it was a spread page of art and then an ad for another book should have been taken out of the book.

    It's a theory of mine that if you tried to put him and Geoff Johns in the same room the universe would be destroyed by the black hole the mass of their egos colliding would then create.

    There was the whole thing with bodies in the Ultron drones. At least I think they were bodies. There might have been a whole storyline about super ultrons.

    The story was edited to fit in with Angela and AI I don't think that was the original story that was going to be told coming out of Avengers and Moonknight. I am not sure how much blame is with Bendis and how much goes to the editors who did not want to scrap a paid for story and shoehorned it into the current MU. Either way it is not the best work.

    Remains to be seen. I think we'll get an answer in Children of the Atom.
