Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 
So with the major additions being the Maximoffs and Ultron, we have more more more than enough issues to countdown with 637 days remaining. I'll start with the Maximoffs, go into their individual history, then move onto issues and stories featuring Ultron.

Okay, let's do this. B.A.U. = Before Age of Ultron


And we start with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver fist joining the Avengers! I would have covered their first appearance in general but it seemed wrong to start off an Avengers countdown with an X-Men issue. Will start from the beginning from tomorrow onward. :D

First appearance of the twins under Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Pretty much every guy is hitting on Scarlet Witch. Classic Stan the Man misogyny. :D

The twins really have a bad relationship with everyone in the brotherhood. Sucks they feel obligated to repay Magneto.

Mags trying to recruit Namor...and the twins finally starting to reach the breaking point with his evil ways.

Scarlet Witch finally boils over...probably mostly because she's sick of Mastermind proposing to her.

Brotherhood guest stars in Thor's Journey Into Mystery.

The twins go to the FF for advice on Magneto. Of course it doesn't go well since they're known criminals at this point..

Mr. Dent 08-09-2013 08:41 PM

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

And the twins finally get enough of Magneto's evil and leave, going back to their own country. Avengers #16 takes place right after this issue.

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

Skipping to Avengers #17 since I started the thread off with issue 16. The "New Avengers" are searching for Hulk to add to their new revamped team...who they don't know has been shot up in space already.

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

In this issue we learn that Quicksilver wants to be in a circus, Scarlet Witch wants to be an actress, and Cap desperately wants to join SHIELD to have a life of his own. And we get to see Hawkeye's dynamic in the the team really shine...all before they go on to face the villain of the story in another country.

It's great how these old issues did so much in the span of just 20 pages. Writers these days could learn something from going back and reading this stuff.

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

Reeaaally loving this stuff. The issue starts off with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch being attacked immediately by the Swordsman while relaxing in Avengers Mansion. Swordsman wants to be a member of the Avengers so he can do whatever he wants with an Avengers card. But he's rejected after attacking the mansion and being beaten. He gets a hold of Cap's letter to Fury and uses that to lure him into a trap. So much happening in ways you wouldn't expect in just 21 pages.

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch team up to save Cap and it ends in the Mandarin getting involved and Iron Man showing back up. That came out of nowhere. I wonder if this tied into some Iron Man issues?

Mr. Dent 08-14-2013 05:20 PM

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

Just about everyone is getting sick of Hawkeye's hotheadedness, he's worse than Quicksilver.

Cap seriously having a hard time keeping the team together now. Guess this is what happens when you put three equally egotistical guys on the same team with only one other member being female.

Kaaaaaaaaang

Always great to see another side of a villain.

Mr. Dent 08-18-2013 05:37 PM

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

Doom trying to take advantage of the Avengers lessened numbers. Thing are escalating for the Kooky Quartet, with Kang and now Doom.

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

Wasp's first appearance since issue 16.

Mr. Dent 08-20-2013 02:37 PM

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

Didn't know Quicksilver could move super fast under water too.

Mr. Dent 08-21-2013 12:48 PM

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

And Pym finally returns after being absent for a full year.

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 

One of the first Avengers stories with the Black Widow in it! She looked very different back then.

Ant-manic 08-22-2013 08:52 PM

Re: Countdown to the Age of Ultron
 
she looks like Katy Perry.

Mr. Dent 08-22-2013 09:30 PM

Katy Perry in a Mockingbird costume.
