Now that the 50th anniversary of “Doctor Who” is over, there’s something we need to talk about. Peter Capaldi. It’s been several months since the announcement, and now the world knows the man’s name.

Confused? Me too, but only just a little, so meet me after the jump for my review of Battle of the Atom.
The worst has happened. The Avengers’ greatest enemy, Ultron, has won. The Earth is conquered, the human race decimated and enslaved, and the Avengers on the run. In a last ditch effort to stop the evil artificial intelligence, our heroes turned to time travel for salvation.
Wolverine and the Invisible Woman traveled back in time and thoughtlessly murdered Avenger Hank Pym before he created Ultron, but this only made things worse when they returned to the present. How can our heroes reset time and save us all? Can they? Find out in my review of Age of Ultron Book Nine after the jump.
