    The sequencing of all the arcs in all the various titles REALLY SHOULD be a priority for Marvel to share more clearly/often with it's readers. Probably, Marvel doesn't want to commit with AoU because if readers see heroes alive and well in upcoming solicits they expect less immediate drama while reading AoU knowing the Cosmic Reset Button is around the corner. For me this scheme is more problematic than meritorius(sp?) to appreciate the series to its fullest.

Read Order (as I see it, which slightly differs from the Marvel "event card"):
AoU #1
AoU #2
Fantastic Four #5AU
Superior Spider-Man #6AU
AoU #3
AoU #4
Ultron #1
Avengers Assembled #14AU
AoU #5
AoU #6

I'm really not sure how much of a reset button we'll get. We'll certainly get one, but there's likely to be a lot of cosmic restructuring to go with it.

    This was not as good Widow's AoU tie-in. But then, not being a fan of Mancha may have something to do with my ambivalence for the issue. And can anyone reveal the proper order to read these random tie-in #'s????

    What's the deal with him anyways? Did the Runaways avert the divergence that would make him Victorius? Was Victorius destined to be more powerful than Ultron? Why is his body going all grid-circuity - is there less cloneflesh to him than when he started? Only mildly curious but with all the other Runaways dead, he's the only one left to care about and speculate about in this Event.

No, the Runaways did not avert anything. Victor becoming Victorious is still a looming threat. I don't believe in destiny, even as a plot hook, but it's not really answered one way or the other: Victor could always be a pawn of Ultron, or Ultron's arch-nemesis.
