An excerpt from the article The Avengers: Age of Ultron: Ant-Man, Villains, Avengers 2 Title Revealed on what the viewer can expect in The Avengers: Age of Ultron:
The plot line of the comic book Age of Ultron:
For years, the Marvel Universe has lived in fear that the artificial intelligence known as Ultron would one day evolve to fulfill its greatest desire: to wipe out all organic life and take over the Earth. That day has arrived! The impossible has happened and Ultron rules the planet! And as the few super hero survivors that remain try desperately to stay alive, Luke Cage learns the staggering secret of Ultron’s victory. As a near-broken Captain America leads a ragtag counterattack, Wolverine makes a controversial and desperate decision – that creates an all-new Marvel Universe! But can even this rash act defeat Ultron? The event of the year has arrived!
On Ultron background:
the character is identified as Ultron-5, the living automaton…In Avengers 57 – 58 (Oct-Nov. 1968) in a flashback sequence it is revealed that Ultron is the creator of the “synthezoid” the Vision, whom it tries to use as a weapon to destroy the Avengers. The Vision, however, destroys Ultron with the aid of the Avengers, similar to Wonder Man, whose brain patterns he was given.
Further flashbacks reveal that he is the creation of Henry Pym, and based on Pym’s brain patterns. The robot gradually developed its own intelligence and rebelled, and almost immediately suffers from an Oedipus Complex, whereby it feels irrational hatred for his “father” Hank, and demonstrates an interest in Hank’s lover Janet van Dyne, the Wasp. Rebuilding itself, learning how to turn itself on, and upgrading five times, Ultron then hypnotizes Pym and brainwashes him into forgetting that the robot had ever existed.
The character’s next appearance is in Avengers #66 – 68 (July – Sept. 1969), where the character, now referring to itself as Ultron-6, uses the fictional alloy adamantium to upgrade his body to an almost indestructible state. Taking the name Ultimate Ultron, its plans to destroy humanity are again thwarted by the Avengers.
The incarnation of Ultron in Avengers: The Age of Ultron will not feature Hank Pym as his creator.
