Marvel’s The Avengers exceeded all expectations! The ending left us with the promise of cosmic level villain and storyline. More on that ending here - careful there be spoilers!
I would love to see Earth’s mightiest heroes take on Ultron because that would also mean the introduction of Henry Pym and Janet Van Dyne (aka Ant-Man and the Wasp!) I can’t root for a Firefly reunion with Nathan Fillion and Summer Glau in those roles.
Ultron is a criminally insane sentient robot obsessed with the eradication of humanity. Dr. Henry Pym used his own brain patterns in experiments to create a sentient artificial intelligence. The robot gained Pym’s intelligence and his mental instability, but without any human conscience.
Ultron created the Vision to infiltrate and destroy the Avengers but he betrayed his maker and became an Avenger (and husband of the Scarlet Witch.) Janet was Henry’s girlfriend and eventually became known as the Wasp. Ultron created a robot bride Jocasta modeled after Jan. Jocasta turned on her maker, too.
Maybe that’s too many new Avengers and too many robots, but what a villain! This cover is from the excellent Kurt Busiek and George Perez Avengers era.
That’s just a geek dream. After Joss Whedon’s direction and Marvel Films production of The Avengers, I’d even be excited about Egghead as the villain in the sequel!
