Who's Who? Wednesday

May 6, 2015



Ultron is the extremely sadistic artificial intelligence from the 2015 Marvel film 'Avengers: Age of Ultron.' He can also be found in the film 'Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow.' In television shows he can be found in 'Avengers Assemble,' 'The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes,' 'The Super Hero Squad Show,' 'The Avengers: United They Stand,' and 'Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers.' In video games he can be found in Marvel: Avengers Alliance, Marvel Super Hero Squad Online, Marvel Heroes 2015, Marvel Contest of Champions, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, and Captain America and the Avengers. In other merchandise he can be found in toys, comic books, games, clothing, pins, and artwork.

He was created in Cresskill, New Jersey in the hometown of Wasp (Janet Van Dyne). He was at one time married in the comics to a robot named 'Jocasta' who he created in match Hank Pym's wife/ex-wife 'Janet Van Dyne' (Wasp) . He doesn't team up often but when he does he teams up with various Marvel villains such as Melter, Whirlwind, Ulysses Klaw, Radioactive Man, the Masters of Evil, and a few other Marvel super villains. His enemies include Hulk, Iron Man, Nick Fury, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Spider-Man, Captain America, Quicksilver, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Vision, Agent Hill, and the rest of the good Marvel super heroes.


Ultron is a large robot. He is made out of various metals, including vibranium (the stuff Captain America's shield is made out of). Of all the designs he has had (there are currently 20 different models of Ultron) the two constant colors of his robotic shell are red and silver. He is sadistic, brilliant, and is extremely twisted. Like Tony Stark, Hank Pym, and Bruce Banner he creates things and one of Ultron's greatest creations was the Vision. He also went by the name Crimson Cowl. Watch for the easter egg to the Crimson Cowl in the new Avengers: Age of Ultron film.

*FUN FACT* In the comics, Ultron was actually created by Dr. Hank Pym (the original Ant-Man) and not by Bruce Banner and Tony Stark.


He is played by the extremely talented James Spader in the 'Avengers: Age of Ultron.' He was voiced by a few different people in animated shows such as Jim Meskimen and Tom Kane. He was also created by John Buscema and Roy Thomas.

Ultron has yet to be incorporated in Disney theme parks around the world. I think going forward, you will see him and a lot of other Marvel characters in the parks in the very near future especially with how popular the films are.
