Super-Villain Identity: Ultron

Real Name:  Ultron

Played By: James Spader

Marvel Cinematic Universe History:  In the pages of Marvel Comics, Ultron is the creation of Hank Pym, aka Ant-Man.  A highly capable robot with artificial intelligence, Ultron developed a god complex and rebelled against his creator.  Though he was destroyed by his own creation known as The Vision, Ultron would not fade into history. Time and time again this super-villain would rebuild itself, strong and faster than ever before. In fact, he was the first Marvel character to use adamantium.

Ultron would remain an adversary of The Avengers throughout the decades. With each incarnation of the robot, it would take more and more superheroes to defeat it. In 2010, Marvel debuted the limited series “Age of Ultron.” This series presented an alternate version of Earth where the greatest heroes would have to team up to defeat an Ultron that had taken over the world.

In The Avengers: Age of Ultron, this classic villain is the creation of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Ultron is the result of a failed program born out of the absence of Iron Man, a role Tony Stark gave up at the end of Iron Man 3.
