They're finally doing something with Sentry. Looks great.

I actually like the idea of having a Superman in the Marvel U.

In the last page it looks like blood is dripping from the Sentry's fist. Now, either he punched Ultron so hard he was able to somehow get to Stark underneath assuming Stark is still in there or he busted his hand when hitting it.

Either that or it is just red cloth handing behind that looks like it might be coming out of the Sentry's fist. I wonder if that confusion was the intention of the artist?

Kudos:

-identification lineup to start off
-reaction to Ultron's acknowledgement
-interfacing weather control tech
-Wasp's thinking her limitations but talking trash
-BW interrogation
-Carol's developing leadership
-Ares personality moment
-Sentry's sun joke
-4pages of Sentry and Ultron power props
-6 pages of preview instead of usual 5

Ponderings:

-if someone, in-story, mentions the scope of the destruction, given the SHRA and the previous public concerns over the scale of the city damage that seems evident here
-if someone, in-story, mentions the purpose of whispering when Ultron could have audio capabilities that rival Iron Man's
-if someone, in-story, mentions the changing skin tones are a clue to her power/technology (and not just a CCA device)
-if someone, in-story, mentions that an 'enemy' controlling the Iron Man suit (again) as a huge SHRA security risk, to be avoided, while Tony is wearer and simultaneously the Director of SHIELD

Uhms:
-have we seen Sentry's eyes go all glassy before?
-the sound effects in the thumbnails view of the fight gives the battle a colorful added dimension but is it strange almost every type of noise ends 'OOM'?
-has ARES ever bleeded in a Marvel story?
-someone had to do a banner of it, eh?

Looks great, though the thought bubbles are getting annoying but everything looks awesome

So far my only complaint with this book is the usage of thought bubbles. Since when is every member of the Avengers a smartass? Everytime someone speaks they have a stupid thought bubble! ARGH!

1. As much as I hate to admit it, female Ultron looks great.

2. The Ultron - Sentry duel is really good. Powerful and dynamic.

3. I like thought bubbles in general, but Bendis doesn't do them well.
His thought bubbles sound really ridiculous...

4. I like Ares's conversation with Carol. Although... asking Ares to formulate a battle plan? I don't know much about Marvel Ares, but mythological Ares wasn't a god of strategy and battle plans. He was more of a savage, dirty fighter. Strategy was Athena's schtick.

5. I don't like Frank Cho's art...

I thnk he's doing them well, showing everyone's doubts.

Yup. I kind of think this was part of Carol's point though--showing Ares really isn't capable of doing better.

Yeah, but there's something off with those thought bubbles... It's hard to explain, but I feel there's too many of them, the characters' thoughts are so banal... I don't know how to put it, but those thought bubbles feel really forced and artificial to me. They actually read like parodies of thought bubbles, as if Bendis is trying to convince everybody that thought bublles are a stupid narrative tool. As if he was trying to say: "Hey, old-school fans! You wanted thought bubbles in my comics? Well, here's some really irritating thought bubbles for you!".

> Yup. I kind of think this was part of Carol's point though--showing Ares really isn't capable of doing better.

Hm. You're right. I re-read the preview and it looks that Carol might not be expecting Ares to be able to plan etc., but wants to show hum that he could try learning it. If so, then OK, it makes sense.

I hate to admit it, but you are right. Here's my logic. I've read Bendis's Daredevil, and it seems like other places where he does the internal monologues. He can do it so it works well. Thought baloons are the same things. Just a different way. If he could do it in that format, it should feel less forced here.
