Added DiffLines:

* FightingAShadow: As Avengers Assemble 15AU reveals, Ultron's not even present anywhere. All the leaders of his armies are just copies.


Added DiffLines:

* MortonsFork: Ultron and his forces like yelling out "surrender or perish". Surrendering just results in death anyway - not that most of Ultron's drones actually ''give'' people a chance to surrender anyhow.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Avengers Assemble 15AU begins with a British man confronted with several Ultron drones, and sarcastically asks whether they'll "[[Series/DoctorWho exterminate]]" him. The drones then begin repeating it, Dalek-style. Later on in the issue, several Ultron drones can be seen standing outside St. Paul's Cathedral, and [[BlatantLies for some mysterious reason]] suddenly they look less like hyper-advance robots, and more like people in badly made costumes.
* ShowDontTell: A major violation occurs in one issue of the main series, where Luke Cage's struggle with Ultron's forces, the death of his associates, and his struggle to get to the Savage Land while dying of radiation poisoning... are all told to the reader by Emma Frost, without so much as a flashback panel.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: A pointed aversion during Avengers Assemble 15AU. Ultron's robots are just technically "alive" enough to kick the curse on the Black Knight's Ebony Blade into overdrive, meaning the British heroes have to bench Dane.

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: ''Avengers Assemble'' #15AU is the closest that the Ultronverse stories get to a happy ending: [[ComicBook/CaptainBritain Brian Braddock]], [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Captain Marvel]], Computer Graham and Magic Boots Mel are all dead, and the whole planet is still overrun with Ultron's lackeys, but the control unit for Ultron's drones in London has been destroyed, Britain's link to the multiverse and Otherworld has been restored, and [[ComicBook/CaptainBritainAndMI13 Faiza Hussain]] -- now Captain Britain -- and [[ComicBook/BlackKnight Dane Whitman]] are alive and prepared to try to take back the country.

* AdaptiveAbility: Logan encounters a harmless Brood in storage at a SHIELD installment and destroys it and the embryo it implants in him. Unfortunately this allows the Brood Queen also kept there to develop the vicious features Brood are known for in present day.


Added DiffLines:

* BigBrotherIsWatching: In the Wolverine and the X-Men Logan and Sue infiltrate A SHIELD base where Sue discovers a room of surveillance footage of all the heroes. Even though she warned Logan of the butterfly effect she uses the equipment to warn Reed he's being watched and to increase his security.

* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: The Ultron model that finally succeeds in conquering the world is gold, rather than the usual silver or battleship grey.

* GenreSavvy: Nick Fury knew that the Avengers would come to his base at the Savage Land, and was waiting for them... even when they didn't know about the very existence of that base, and Fury did not arrange anything to let them know.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In the lead up, the Bendis written ''MoonKnight'' title's main plotline concerned the deactivated head of an Ultron, and the final issue stated that this would tie in to ''Age of Ultron''. It was never mentioned again.
