Uncanny Avengers #10 Review by (July 7, 2016)
The Monster Metropolis under Manhattan was 1st seen in the Frankencastle arc of Punisher. Shiklah took it over in the Deadpool: The Gauntlet Infinite series.

Mr Fantastic and Invisible Woman went off to explore the multiverse at the end of Secret Wars (2015). What Human Torch and Thing think happened to them is part of the general question of exactly how the post-SW Marvel Universe relates to SW and the destroyed pre-SW MU.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Uncanny Avengers #10 Synopsis by Rob Johnson
Dr Voodoo and Rogue are with Henry Pym in his Ultron armour down in the New York subway dealing with an invasion of monsters from the Monster Metropolis of Deadpool's wife Shiklah. Hank begs off before they've finished because he has a date with ex-wife Wasp. But instead she shows up to help out.

They then head for privacy atop the Chrysler Building. Hank tells Janet Van Dyne how he successfully came to an accommodation with Ultron out in space. The merged result is now a force for good, and they've spent months helping various aliens. He even understands why the Avengers have a drone keeping an eye on him - Ultron has always been a murderous enemy.

Wasp leaves him and joins Captain America (Steve Rogers) who's been watching from afar. She can now relax her brave front as she tells him that it's Ultron who is running that body. She dropped a couple of things into the conversation that 'Henry' didn't respond to properly. But it turns out Cap isn't responsible for the drone. And Ultron can hear their conversation.

Back at Unity Squad HQ Human Torch asks time-travelling Cable if Reed and Sue Richards ever return. Nathan Summers doesn't know - but he also doesn't know that they're dead, so there's hope.

Pym enters as the AI in Cable's artificial arm silently passes the message that Hank is actually Ultron. But Cable proves that Hank's still in there somewhere by riling him about being much less of a genius than Richards and Tony Stark.  The being gets angry and then coughs up blood and something darker. 'Henry' appears to smear the stuff on 1 side of his face - which turns Ultron.

Cap and Wasp get there to see the building explode. Inside they find Cable and Torch unconscious, and Deadpool shooting at Ultron. Jan triggers her necklace which emits an EMP designed to temporarily shut Ultron down. She tells DP to kill him while they have the chance. But Cap tells him not to, on general anti-killing grounds.

Ultron starts to recover, and Deadpool fires ....
