What if the Watcher decided to be Nick Fury, and organize his own version of the Avengers to battle Ultimate Ultron? It creates a solid season finale with an ending that seems too tidy but really isn’t. It also suggests a lot of interesting stories next year.
What if Ultron won….and found out this universe isn’t the only one? That’s the premise for this week’s episode. It forces the Watcher to do more than watch, while two Avengers hope an unlikely ally will take Ultron down.
What if Earth didn’t have heroes protecting it? That’s the plot this week as someone is trying to kill the Avengers Initiative, just as another bad guy arrives?
The culprit is an interesting choice, and the story still ends with a fair amount of hope.
