> ..however, I'm still hopeful about this title and this arc. I think most of us agree that Ultron Model 890 has become fairly to very stale over the years, and Kurt gave us the ultimate 'Ultron Family Showdown' I think. To be made interesting again, something completely new had to be tried.
> We've had female Kangs and female Crimson Cowls, w've had the Red Skull's daughter...why not a shot at a female Ultron, even if it is a somewhat redudnant idea after Alchema and Jocasta?
Because aside from being redundant, it doesn't make any sense for a character who previously identified himself as a male in all of his inter-relationships w/ his 'family', regardless of whether he actually was one or not, to now all of a sudden decide to be female. Having Red Skull have a daughter isn't the same as Red Skull having a sex change and becoming female. Having a female take up the inherently genderless mantle of the Crimson Cowl is not the same either, nor is having a female as Kang when it's not the original or prime Kang. Unless the She-Ultron in MA is ultimately revealed as being a divergent Ultron program or a new progeny of his attempting to steal his name, one would have a hard time convincing me that the depth of this character change is no deeper than Frank Cho wanting another set of DD's to draw.
> I'm willing to give it a shopt, especially since the Mole Man is standing by for some reason.
....Bendis hasn't been known for his ideas on the Avengers--not since the redundant, badly-paced Chaos, right out of the gate--but it still remains to be seen why he's going to tell us Ultron has decided to maniest as a female.
Presuming of course that he will tell us--I doubt he won't: he's been taking a lot of heat from fans, and he's proven to me with his two Illuminati books that he can tell a solid, creative, traditional hero story that packs a 'wow' factor.
I really, really believe that Kang, Ultron, and the MOE really need new imaginative twists/redefintions to make them interesting again at this point in history. I would never want to sit through another 12-part Kang War like Kurt gave us.
