Age of Ultron #3

So you know when you *know* something is
supposed to happen that will be a total game-changer in an ongoing
series, and you have an idea of what it might be, and you’re hoping for
it to go the way you want it to, but you have this really bad feeling
that it won’t?

Yeah, that’s kind of how I felt about Superior Spiderman #9.
I won’t spoil it (though it’s been out awhile now, and I dare say #10
should be in my mailbox soon), but what I had hoped might happen,
didn’t. Quite the opposite actually, thought the power struggle was
pretty incredible. And now I’m left in a somewhat awkward state of mind
about the whole thing…because I’m just not sure how it’s going to work
without the…restrictions that were previously in place. I’m certainly
interested to see where it goes from here, albeit quite nervous…

Not being as well-rounded in comicdom as
long-time fans, I still get a little confused when an issue brings in a
character that everyone is expected to know, but I have no idea who it
is. Wolverine #3 brings in Nick Fury, a
S.H.E.I.L.D agent I know nothing about, but apparently he’s some dude
that Wolverine has worked with in the past. Then they make reference to
the X-men, and also this new “team” of sorts that Wolverine has put
together…and it feels in places like I’m stepping into a dynamic that I
really should know the history of, but don’t. I’ve heard of
S.H.E.I.L.D, of course, but other than bits and pieces from the Avengers
movie (that was S.H.E.I.L.D, right?), I really don’t have much context
for it. It seems like it might be important though, so I think I’ll do
some digging in the digital comic archives and find out what I’m

I like the Wolverine comics…think I’ll
definitely add this “volume 5” series to my subscription service to save
some $$ and to make sure I don’t miss any…

is…well, it’s freaky. And difficult to put down, which is problematic
since I pick it up at night when I crawl into bed. “Just a few chapters”
turns into “just a couple more pages” and then “I really can’t put it
down until I know if they escape this” followed by a healthy dose of,
“but what about- no way! That is so not happening. Or will it? Is it
even possible?”

And the team dynamics in this book are just incredible. Everyone is so in tune with everyone else – understandably so. It’s quite amazing, really (yet totally believable).

Argh! I keep thinking I need to pay
attention to the story structure, because this is exactly how I want my
books to read (well, I mean page-turning-wise, not actual story…though
I’m loving this). But I can’t possibly read critically when so many
things are at stake, so my own dissection will have to wait until after I
find out whether the dissection in the book is actually going to take
place or not (because it can’t, really, but they’re running out of time,

Yeah. The genetic tampering in this book
freaks me out mostly because of what it means/requires as far as…well,
dang it. I’m not saying anymore about it, because I don’t want to ruin
it for you. Just go read it, K? And don’t forget to breathe…
