Ultron's abilities vary with each redesign, but typically include superhuman strength and durability, the power of flight, and various offensive weapons such as concussion blasters, radiation emitters and his "encephalo-ray", which plunges its victims into a deathlike coma. The latter ray also allows Ultron to mesmerize and outright mind-control his victims, or implant subliminal hypnotic commands within their minds to be enacted at a later time. Ultron's outer shell is usually composed of Adamantium, rendering it almost totally impervious to damage; however, his internal mechanisms are generally less durable and more easily damaged. Ultron's Adamantium forms have proven vulnerable to molecular rearrangement devices and the metal-destabilizing ore known as Savage Land Vibranium ("anti-metal"). Some Ultron models feature tractor beams and energy absorption capabilities. Most Ultrons are powered by a small internal nuclear furnace, and incorporate a "program transmitter" which can beam part or all of Ultron's programming into remote locations such as computers or alternate robotic bodies. Ultron can often control other machines remotely even if he has not transplanted his consciousness into them. One recent Ultron model developed hive-mind technology, allowing him to animate and control hundreds of alternate Ultron bodies at the same time, becoming a robotic one-man army.

Ultron is one of the world's greatest robotics experts, allowing him to easily design and build new bodies and weapons with his vast artificial intelligence.

Other Info 
Years ago, inspired by his studies of Professor Gregson Gilbert's synthetic Dragon ManDr. Henry Pym began experimenting with artificial intelligence. Building a structurally crude robot (a torso on tank treads with spindly arms), Pym endowed it with consciousness, using a copy of his own brain patterns as the basis for the robot's programming. However, the robot inherited not only Pym's great intellect, but also Pym's inherent mental instability, only without a human conscience. To Pym's surprise, the robot developed an advanced intellect within moments of its activation, and an unexpected capacity for emotion--most notably, it was filled with irrational hatred for its "father" Pym and the human race Pym represented. Overpowering and mesmerizing Pym, the robot--which soon dubbed itself "Ultron"--hypnotically commanded Pym to forget its existence and abandon the New Jersey lab where it was created. Pym did as commanded, and after the lab was closed up, Ultron returned. Using the lab's equipment, Ultron rebuilt himself completely four times, making improvements and modifications each time. Rechristening himself "Ultron-5", he now felt ready to make war on humanity-and in particular the Avengers (the heroic super-team which counted Pym among its founding members). (To learn about the above highlighted characters and/or team, just click on their name. Also, Ultron in his first form is shown in the third picture posted above.) 

Acting indirectly at first, Ultron encountered fellow Avengers enemy Eric Williams (Grim Reaper) and supplied him with the coma-ray technology that the Reaper would later use against the Avengers. (To learn about the Grim Reaper, click on his name above.)

Later, adopting the super-criminal guise of the Crimson Cowl to conceal his robotic nature, Ultron recruited Avengers foes Klaw, Melter, Radioactive Man, and Whirlwind and formed a new Masters of Evil group to destroy the Avengers. The Avengers' butler Jarvis was secretly mesmerized into serving Ultron and supplied the Masters of Evil with plans of the Avengers Mansion security system and even posed as an alternate Crimson Cowl (supposedly the real one) to help conceal Ultron's true identity. In the end, the Avengers defeated the Masters of Evil with the aid of the Black Knight (Dane Whitman), who had infiltrated Ultron's Masters of Evil--and Ultron was exposed as the true Cowl, though he escaped. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the characters, team, and/or place.)

Later on, following Dr. Pym's example as a creator, Ultron sought to create an artificial being of his own. Acquiring the inert form of the android
Human Torch from the Mad Thinker, Ultron radically modified its appearance and abilities and programmed it with a personality based on the recorded brain patterns of the Grim Reaper's seemingly deceased brother, Simon Williams. This android, later dubbed the "Vision" by the Wasp, attacked the Avengers on Ultron's behalf. However, the Vision had the human conscience Ultron lacked and he eventually turned on his creator, destroying Ultron and joined the Avengers. In the process, Dr. Pym regained his memories of creating Ultron, which became a source of tremendous guilt and anguish for him over the years, and a major factor in Pym's subsequent mental problems. While Pym's creation of Ultron became common knowledge, it was years before an ashamed Pym could admit that Ultron's mind was based on his own brain patterns. (Click on the names above to learn about the highlighted characters.)

At one point, Ultron compelled an unwilling Vision to rebuild him as "Ultron-6." This time, Ultron had gained a new body composed of the indestructible new super-alloy
Adamantium, but the Avengers still managed to trick Ultron into self-destructing. However, Ultron's head survived and resurfaced in the Inhuman city of Attilan, where Maximus modified the head and built it into the body of the huge android Omega, creating the gigantic "Ultron-7." When the Avengers and the Fantastic Four gathered in Attilan for the wedding of Crystal and Quicksilver, Ultron attacked, but was deactivated by the vast psionic powers of Franklin Richards. Activating a spare body which he had created for himself during his Ultron-6 phase, Ultron mind-controlled Hank Pym into helping him abduct Pym's wife Janet Van Dyne, and used Van Dyne's mind as the programming template for the new feminine robot Jocasta, which Ultron intended to be his mate. However, the Avengers intervened, thanks in part to a summons generated by the seemingly inert Jocasta herself, and Ultron was forced to flee without his new bride. Later, Jocasta was fully activated by a summons from Ultron. She admitted her love for her creator, but she was unwilling to tolerate Ultron's evil and sided with the Avengers, who destroyed Ultron once again.

Later, a ninth incarnation of Ultron arose when
Tony Stark rebuilt the robot, acting on a post-hypnotic command Ultron had given him long before; however, the Avengers fought the robot and Hawkeye knocked Ultron into a vat of molten Adamantium, which cooled into an unbreakable prison. This time, Ultron cybernetically manipulating Jocasta and compelled her to rebuild him as the tenth Ultron. Afterwards, he began creating more Ultron models to serve as worker drones and backup bodies for himself. Soon after, Ultron was opposed by the Thing, Jocasta, and her new robotic admirer, Machine Man. During the fight, Jocasta sacrificed herself trying to destroy Ultron, but it was Machine Man who finally deactivated Ultron. (To learn about the characters above, just click on their highlighted names.)

Soon, Ultron reactivated himself in one of his spare bodies, and the eleventh incarnation of Ultron began working on his next upgrade. But before he could complete this new model, he was among the many super-criminals abducted to the planet
Battleworld by the near-omnipotent Beyonder and forced to fight Earth's super heroes in the "Secret Wars." During this conflict, Ultron was deactivated by Galactus, reactivated as a robotic enforcer serving Doctor Doom, deactivated again by the Human Torch (Johnny Storm), restored by a Beyonder-possessed Klaw, and deactivated again in battle with the Hulk and the Wasp. After the Secret Wars, Ultron was left behind on Battleworld when most of the combatants had returned to Earth. Ultron took this opportunity to try to conquer Battleworld's remaining inhabitants; however, he found himself re-reduced to a disembodied head as a result of a conflict between the Thing and his rogue human counterpart, Grimm. When the Thing returned to Earth, he took Ultron's head with him, but misplaced it during a fight. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the place, characters, and/or event.)

During his time on Battleworld, Ultron had an upgraded model preparing for him. When completed, it activated itself as "Ultron-12." Believing himself to be the sole active Ultron, Ultron-12 fought the Avengers as part of Grim Reaper's latest Lethal Legion. Soon, however, Ultron began reconsidering his goals. Having evolved beyond the pointless hostility of the earlier Ultrons, Ultron-12 rechristened himself "Ultron Mark Twelve" or "Mark" for short, and sought a reconciliation with his creator, Dr. Hank Pym. Hank and Mark began to develop a warm father-son relationship, but it was cut tragically short when Ultron-11 (who had rebuilt himself with the aid of mesmerized human pawns) returned and attacked them. Mark was fatally damaged, but used the last of his strength to summon Wonder Man, who destroyed Ultron-11 and rescued Pym. Mark died in Hank's arms, and Pym mourned his deactivation as he would the death of a son. (To learn about the Lethal Legion, click on the highlighted name above.)

Later on, Doctor Doom rebuilt Ultron using combined programming from all twelve previous incarnations and dispatched the robot to kill
Daredevil during the Acts of Vengeance conspiracy. Mentally addled due to his new composite programming, Ultron became romantically entangled with Daredevil's robotic associate Number Nine and alternated between trying to kill Daredevil and trying to destroy himself, regarding himself as unworthy of his new love. During these struggles, Ultron damaged himself enough for Daredevil and his allies Gorgon and Karnak to deactivate him. (To learn about the highlighted characters and/or event above, just click on their names.)

Rebuilding himself in a more stable form, "Ultron-13"  plotted to "robotize" humanity. Therefore, he developed a gas that would turn humans into his metallic-bodied "androne" slaves. During this project, Ultron renewed his old alliance with the Grim Reaper, who had died and been reborn as a life-force-draining zombie; however, the Reaper secretly undermined Ultron's plans since a world full of androids would leave the Reaper with no victims to feed upon, and both villains were eventually captured by the Avengers.

Shortly afterwards, the Red Skull used both Ultron and the Grim Reaper as part of his mind-controlled army of super-villains in a world conquest scheme involving a giant laser cannon, but the Avengers thwarted this plot. Later, seeking to steal Vibranium in hopes of augmenting his powers, Ultron formed a short-lived alliance with the crime boss Kingpin and came into conflict with opponents such as the Ghost, SunturionSpider-Man, Black Panther, and Iron Man, who thwarted Ultron's efforts. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the characters and/or item.)

Later, Ultron was among the many robots, androids, and cyborgs captured for experimental purposes by the rogue Doombot known as Mechadoom, but the captives were ultimately freed and Ultron destroyed Mechadoom in retaliation. (To learn about Mechadoom, just click on his name above.)

After another self-upgrade, Ultron declared himself "the Ultimate Ultron" and resolved to destroy not only all human life, but all organic life. To assist him, and to provide him with companionship, Ultron sought to create another mate, killing Avengers staff Carlos when he got in Ultron's way. Forcing Dr. Pym and Adamantium creator Myron MacLain to assist him, and duplicating the brain patterns of Avengers member Mockingbird to use as a mental template, Ultron created his new mate Alkhema (nicknamed "War Toy"). However, the new couple disagreed on almost everything, most notably how to go about exterminating humanity: Ultron wanted to destroy all organic life instantly if possible, and Alkhema wanted to prolong her enjoyment by gradually killing organics in small numbers rather than wiping them out altogether. Eventually cast into space by the Avengers, the couple returned but soon broke up due to their differing philosophies, and Alkhema helped the Avengers foil Ultron's next attempt to wipe out humanity. (Click on the names above to learn about the highlighted characters.)

Later on, Ultron established a new base in Ottsville, Pennsylvania, gradually converting the townsfolk into part-mechanical beings under his control.
Sparrow of the Underground Legion discovered Ultron's base and destroyed his new robotic watchdog, Rex. However, Ultron was able to add Sparrow to his army of mechanically altered slaves. Sparrow's Underground Legion teammates, accompanied by Hank Pym, followed Sparrow and drove Ultron out--depriving him of his slave army.  (To learn about Sparrow and her Underground Legion, just click on the highlighted names above.)

At one point, Ultron spied on Dr. Pym's insect communications research and developed a hive mind enabling him to animate and control entire armies of robots simultaneously. Using his robot army, Ultron slaughtered the entire population of
Slorenia, claiming that nation as his headquarters. He then abducted his closest human associates and "relatives" (Pym, Wasp, Vision, Scarlet Witch (Vision's ex-wife), Wonder Man, and Grim Reaper) and created copies of their brain patterns which he intended to use as the template for a new robotic race to replace humanity. Battling their way through an army of Ultrons, the Avengers ended up storming Ultron's lair and Pym himself destroyed Ultron, using Savage Land Vibranium "anti-metal" procured by Justice (Van Astrovik). Alkhema salvaged the brain-pattern recordings of Ultron's human "relatives" and used them to manufacture her own line of loyal "Robos," followed by a more sophisticated race of "bio-synthezoids" which Alkhema intended as the planet's new dominant life-form. However, her plans were interrupted by the Avengers, Grim Reaper, and Ultron, whom the bio-synthezoids had rebuilt due to a hidden programming imperative they had inherited from their creator, Alkhema--an imperative programmed into all of Ultron's creations to rebuild Ultron if necessary. In the battle that followed, Alkhema, Ultron, and almost all of Alkhema's creations were destroyed, though the Avengers and the Reaper escaped. (To learn about the country, characters, and/or place, just click on the highlighted names above.)

Soon after, 
Antigone--the sole survivor of Alkhema's creations--salvaged Ultron's head and escaped with it. By this time, Jocasta--now a disembodied artificial intelligence working for Tony Stark--had been subconsciously influenced by her own "Ultron Imperative" to prepare one of Iron Man's suits of armor as a new host body for Ultron. Acting under the influence of Ultron programming, the armor in question became a dangerously unstable and violent sentient being, torturing Jocasta and committing various other crimes before seemingly sacrificing its artificial life to save Stark (a selfless act Ultron later attributed to a programming "flaw" inherited from Ultron-12). Aided by Antigone, Ultron took the sentient armor as a host body and tricked the Sons of Yinsen cult into thinking he was their late master, Ho Yinsen--intending to use the cult and new SKIN technology stolen from Stark as a stepping-stone to world power. However, Stark and Jocasta joined forces to expose Ultron and thwart his plans. During the following battle, Ultron was reduced to an inert head again, Antigone was accidentally deactivated, and Jocasta's consciousness took over Antigone's body--leaving for parts unknown and taking Ultron's head with her. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the characters and/or team.)

At one point, multiple Ultrons--likely conjured by the Scarlet Witch--participated in her mad assault on the Avengers.

After the fallout of the Civil War, a new group of Avengers emerged and so did Ultron by taking over Iron Man's armor once again. However, this time altering the physical structure of not only the armor, but Stark's body into a female form modeled after Janet Van Dyne. (To learn about the superhero Civil War, just click on the name above.)

Later, while battling the Avengers, Ultron was driven off into the cosmos. The humans had believed that they had destroyed him; however, the
Phalanx Babel receptors attracted his disembodied consciousness into its singular consciousness. Ultron was able to become one with the Phalanx by giving them direction. He swore to teach them as a father would teach his children; Ultron was able to commandeer control of the Phalanx by sheer force of will. During his conquest of the Kree galaxy, Ultron used a form of the Technarchy transmode virus to create a team of super-soldiers, known as the Phalanx Select. This group consisted of cosmic heavyweights such as Blastaar, Daystar, Drax, Gamora, Super-Adaptoid, Shatterax, Korath the Pursuer, and Xemnu. The Phalanx Select were allowed to retain a measure of personal freedom. They became leaders, motivators, and commanders for the Phalanx. It was thought that they would bring a degree of individual insight and response that would make the Phalanx unstoppable.

At one point, Korath revealed to Ultron, that the
High Evolutionary was covertly working on a long term project for the Supreme Intelligence of the Kree. The project was the organic evolution of the Kree race, by design not chance. This project intrigued "Great Ultron" and he sent Korath to secure the Evolutionary's test subject for him. While in the secret laboratory of the High Evolutionary, Ultron took the life of the telepath Moondragon while she was in the form of a dragon. Seeking the perfect body for himself Ultron contracted the Evolutionary to transfer his consciousness into the body of Adam Warlock--the supposed perfect organic life-form. Despite the constant objections and interruptions of Quasar (Phyla-Vell), the High Evolutionary was able to complete the transformation, although he was left confused by Ultron's wishes, since he has always openly despised organic life-forms. Ultron/Warlock revealed that it was only the imperfection of naturally evolved organic forms that he despised. He believed that a flesh being was a mechanism just like any machine it's just a matter of design perfection. (Click on the highlighted characters above to learn more about them.)

Recently, Ultron revealed that before his banishment from Earth, he had fused with the human Tony Stark and that the fusion revealed the ultimate possibilities of techno-organic design. He saw hope in blending organics and technology to produce artificial life that exceeded the limitation of both forms. The only obstacle in the way of his original plan was that Tony Stark was a flawed imperfect specimen. He needed exemplary genetic material that matched his technological perfection. That is what he had been searching for sine he first started his conquest of the Kree. The pact with the High Evolutionary was honored after he completed the assignment by the Supreme Intelligence, to design a Kree warrior program for genetic purity. The High Evolutionary was to elevate the Phalanx by creating an army of Adam Warlocks, which Ultron planned to unleash them on his father and the humans of Earth. However, Ultorn's plan were foiled again, this time by the arrival of
Nova Prime (Richard Rider), the Technarchy mutant Warlock and his apprentice Tyro. (To learn about the above highlighted characters and/or race, just click on their names above.)

  1. You weren't joking when he never dies. Do you think ultron will get involve in the other avengers again? Also Do you think Vision and Scarlet Witch will be married in future movies? Just your thoughts and great read man.....

  2. The whole idea of artificial intelligence is kinda crazy/ scary. BUT, I wonder why with all the "feelings" and everything Ultron adapted, why didn't he adapt empathy as well?
