For as good as this series has been with the tremendous fan service and geek moments, I thought they missed the boat on an opportunity to get a Marvel ensemble on the screen. I was hoping for a quick cut-away montage of various heroes like the Fantastic Four/Wolverine and the X-Men/Spider-Man/etc. fending off Kang's forces throughout the world. Of course, licensing dictates that we can't get everything we want.

I couldn't get into this one, knowing it was neither the beginning, nor the end of the storyline. I did appreciate a few little things, like Hank Pym officially programming violence into Ultron. Now it's just a matter of when this comes back to bite them all.

Also liked the subtle shifting of leadership towards Captain America. His opening "Avengers Assemble" and sending T'Challa back to Wakanda are a nice hint that there's going to be a change in leadership soon and even if it doesn't hit "Civil War" level, it'll be cool to see the Cap/Iron Man conflict at some point.

The Kang saga ends next week, complete with new Iron Man armor. Should be a good one.

Well there was the Black Knight fighting off the machines in England. But yeah, a shame there wasn't more.
Then again, half the time you have one team or another deal with a huge threat without involving others. That's the way comics always are.

The first ten minutes were pure action, the middle bit was explaining and then we went back to the action.

And yeah, the Ultron plot thickens.
The design of the the robots is spot on, and they seem to know it. They do a close-up of the wicked face more than required.

As pointed out over and over, the writers really laid the groundworks for at least half a dozen story arcs.

Huge geek out for "We need an army".

I figure we'll at least get a Fantastic Four appearance at some point since they've actually been shown on screen.

I hope this doesn't just jump right to the Kree/Skrull war after this, I'd like to see some smaller scale character driven episodes.
