Ultron mini-post

I was going to make a long thinky post about Ultron, which I mostly liked – a lot! Well, except for them cutting out Tom Hiddleston’s Loki cameo - and I had to LOL that 15 out of 20 Ultron articles on an aggregate site pointed that fact out.

But I don’t have time right now to write a long thinky post, and anyway, I need to see Ultron a couple more times because watching this movie was like speed-reading an abridged book – it made me hyper-aware of all that hit the cutting room floor. (They certainly had better release an extended version at their earliest opportunity.... With that Loki clip restored. :-)

Point I liked – a lot: The character with the most to lose (Clint Barton) – didn’t. (Oh - and spoiler! - the dog didn't die!)

So. Today’s post. Once I started reading MCU fic I quickly realized that if an Original Character shows up in one story, then shows up again in an entirely different story by an entirely different author, chances are 100% that the character is actually from comicsverse canon.

And when an “Original Character” shows up in Ulton? Comicsverse canon. Though apparently AU.

I give you Laura Barton.
