We left our torn heroes at the end of issue #2 ready with a plan to get to Ultron. This issue deals heavily with that plan in New York which deals with Luke Cake and She-Hulk trying to make an exchange with Ultron as the villains were trying to do with Spidey back in issue #1. It seems like a solid plan and gets them generally what they want but there is an interesting twist to the end of it that intrigues me for what is to come. Bendis as said that this isn't the only twist in this series so I wonder where it is going.

Also, there is a short interlude in Chicago with Black Panther, Red Hulk and Taskmaster. It is easy to say that things are not going really well for any heroes at this point. It is really hard to discuss this book without ruining too much of the story but it is starting to pick up. There are a lot of turning cogs to the machine that is ultimately going to explode by the final issues. I am just happy to see it going somewhere. It is hard to judge an event until it is over because you never know what the closing chapters will do to the story (see AvX) but for now, Bendis has me hungry for the next chapter.
