The first image features biographies for Ultron and the Vision, revealing both characters’ origins. It turns out Ultron began existence as a relatively simple program in the Chitauri’s computer systems, providing a direct link to the plot of the original Avengers. Ultron only gains sentience after being experimented on by Tony Stark.
It sounds like director Joss Whedon may be playing with similar themes to those found in the “Danger” story from his run writing Astonishing X-Men for Marvel Comics, during which the X-Men’s famous Danger Room is revealed to be built around sentient technology from the alien Shi’ar race.
There’s been conflicting rumors about whether Age of Ultron’s Vision will be created by Tony Stark or Bruce Banner. His profile reveals both to be true. It seems that, rather than be created by Ultron, the “Science Bros” develop Vision together as a way of matching Ultron’s unique electronic and digital capabilities. This may also provide a reasoning for Vision’s color scheme of red, gold, and green, a combination of both Iron Man and the Hulk’s colors.
Also revealed is promo art of the Vision phasing through a wall emblazoned with the Avengers: Age of Ultron logo, and another of Black Widow’s new power suit and stun batons.
Vision looks so awesome! And of course Widow getting batons is a fun and badass idea!
The science bros are having a brotherly chat...
I cant wait to see Thor among the piles of Terminator-esqe Ultron bodies! Epic!
Here you can see the Avengers' faces in the shattered glass! Look closely!!!
This art is cool and fun! It shows off our classic Avengers ready to fight Ultrons hordes!
How will Ultron try to end the world? Disease? Famine? Nukes? Or just good old fashioned robot armies? We'll have to wait until May to find out!
