The Avengers: Ultron

Updated on May 17, 2012

Ultron is a villain that was created by the great mind of Henry "Hank" Pym. It was quite possibly his most brilliant creation, but also the most dangerous. Pym had good intentions in creating the powerful robot, but instead of it helping humanity, it sought out to destroy it completely. Pym decided to give it a consciousness and when he did he was even more surprised to see how his creation hated him and his race immediately. The robot even went about naming itself Ultron. It has different abilities with each new design but typically share some of the same traits such as superhuman strength, durability, flight, and multiple weapons at his disposal such as concussion rays. He is an incredibly difficult opponent in battle as his outer shell is composed of adamantium rendering it almost completely impervious to any kind of damage. Some Ultron forms even have the ability energy absorption capabilities. Ultron was also able to re-create himself into stronger versions which he frequently did. In order to wage war against humanity, he re-created himself four times and then he deemed himself worthy enough to even take on the Avengers.

Ultron at first acted indirectly, almost with no purpose. He then encountered Eric Williams, also known as Grim Reaper, who was an enemy of the Avengers and Ultron provided Williams with a coma-ray technology that he would then use against their shared foe. Ultron would then go on to help create a group of villains that also had been topped by the Avengers such as Klaw, Melter, Radioactive Man and Whirlwind. Together they created a team called the Masters of Evil and frequently opposed the Avengers as a collective unit. Ultron used his hypnotic powers to control the Avengers personal butler, Jarvis, into telling the Masters of Evil of the layout of the Avengers Mansion for they planned an attack on the building. Upon the attack, Ultron concealed his true identity and appeared as the Crimson Cowl. The Masters of Evil were driven back by the Avengers who had the help of the Black Knight (Dane Whitman) who had infiltrated Ultron's lab where he found the real version of Ultron. Black Knight was unable to keep Ultron from escaping his grasp, which of course then allowed Ultron to form another attack on another day.

Ultron began to think of other ways to attack the Avengers, which made him think outside of the box. He came up with an idea that he thanked his creator for, he sought out ways to create an artificial being of his own. He took the disabled android Human Torch from the Mad Thinker and radically modified the bot. He changed it's appearance, abilities and even implanted it with the recorded brain patterns of the Grim Reaper's brother, Simon Williams (who would later become Wonder Man). This newly created android, which would later be named Vision, attacked the Avengers on Ultron's command. What Ultron didn't expect was the fact that Vision had an actual human consciousness that his creator lacked. With this human consciousness, Vision turned on his creator and killed him. Vision even turned to the Avengers and was welcomed with open arms. Wasp even helped in giving him a name. Coinciding with Ultron's death, Pym regained his memories of creating Ultron which had previously been wiped with his creation's hypnotic abilities. This caused Pym to be overwhelmed with guilt over his creation which also developed subsequent mental problems. After all, Ultron was created based off of his own brain patterns. These matters got worse when it all became public knowledge.

Of course when a villain as powerful and persuasive as Ultron is killed off, it never really means the end of the character. He used his hypnotic abilities to have his creation create a sixth model of Ultron. This time Ultron had been created with a super alloy adamantium but yet the Avengers managed their way around that one as well. The Avengers managed to trick him into self destructing. Ultron continued to died, and come back in a new form in some way or another. Tony Stark even re-created Ultron for the ninth time under a form of post-hypnotism, this time around the Avengers defeated him in an entirely different way. Clint Barton, Hawkeye, knocked the malevolent robot into a vat of molten adamantium which cooled into a indestructible prison. Of course, that still didn't keep the robot down. Like that one song says, I get knocked down, I get up again. That could really be applied to a lot of comic book villains. After being knocked into the supposed indestructible prison, Ultron hypnotized another person into re-creating him for the tenth time. This time around he even went about creating other worker robots that would develop backup bodies in case something happened to himself.

      yeah i know. I just focused on his evilness. Wonder Man is probably going to be after Vision.

      Ultron really doesn't know when to quit. He would make a excellent force for good again, if, you know, he wasn't all evil and stuff.
