"Age of Ultron: Road Trip"

This AoU tie-in fits neatly into the first couple of pages of Age of Ultron #6. Wolverine and Sue Storm are already in the past but they have yet to run into Hank Pym. This issue dealt with a lot of soul searching for both of them and the realization that they do not want to cause to large of a ripple in time (other than the massive one that Wolverine intends to).

Wolverine has an interaction with a Brood that doesn't go overly well for him. He decides to keep everything that happens to him from Sue because he may have made a massive mistake (which I wouldn't be surprised if it somehow is also mentioned in future comics). Sue, on the other hand, sees that Nick Fury was actually spying the the Fantastic Four and decides to inform that time's Reed Richards of it. Once again, this interaction may cause something to happen in the future but we will have to wait and see.

As with any of these tie-ins so far, this book wasn't necessary. It ties in some extra character building and fills in a couple small blanks from the main title but you would not have to read it to get the full grasp of AoU. I had fun reading it and enjoyed seeing the way Wolverine and Sue react to one another. I just hope that the choices they made in the past in this issue and in the main issue doesn't have too big of a reaction.
