The fact that comic book characters don’t stay dead (unless their name is Uncle Ben) is a well-established fact. But the last time we saw Hank Pym in a Marvel comic... something strange happened to him. We had no idea how it was going to fit into the then-upcoming reboot, but Uncanny Avengers has finally offered a…
Before he loaned his voice to the genocidal robot Ultron in the latest Avengers movie, James Spader played the enigmatic CEO Robert California on The Office. And when you put Robert California’s words in Ultron’s metal mouth, the results are delightfully unhinged.
Just look at it. Look at that action figure and try not to hear a pithy remark from the voice of James Spader. This Ultron figure isn’t just amazing-looking, it’s here to snidely judge everything on your desk or toyshelf while doing so!
Last month we got a sneaky first look at Ashley Wood’s latest Marvel toy: A pretty fabulous looking Ultron. But now ThreeA have unveiled a bunch of pictures of the figure, and not only does it come in a variety of Ultronny metallic colours, it also looks pretty damn amazing.
Not every piece of Ultron merchandise out is all about celebrating the Avenger’s most iconic villain heading to the big screen in Age of Ultron. Sometimes, the maniacal robot just gets a badass action figure because hey, he deserves it. You do you, Ultron.
In a few weeks, Avengers: Age of Ultron will be upon us, introducing the MCU to one of Avengers' most iconic villains. Although this is Ultron's first appearance on film, the character has had a long (and strange) history in comics. Here's what you need to know about the insane robot.
The Age of Ultron merchandise train is well and truly rolling — but it's not just the movie versions of Earth's finest getting the spotlight. If anything, it means it's an easy opportunity to sell old comics toys, now that you can say 'look they're in the new movie!'.
This week graphic novel Rage of Ultron — not to be confused with the upcoming indie darling Age of Ultron — hit store shelves, revealing a big change for the villainous robot Ultron and its creator, Hank Pym. But there’s one problem: Does any of it actually matter? Spoilers ahead.
I mean, just look at him! He may want to wipe out all of humanity to achieve his twisted sense of peace, but I wouldn't say no to this little cutie, or any of his equally big-headed friends. Hot Toys have finally brought back their Cosbaby series, just in time for Age of Ultron.
Age of Ultron's big bad can look awfully creepy when he's working those James Spader-y robo eyeballs of his - and it looks like Hot Toys have captured them pretty perfectly in their latest figure. I'm not sure I want this figure on my desk, his eyes boring into my soul in judgement. Quit being so judgy, Ultron!
Outstanding illustration of the new Ultron on the cover of Empire this week. I remember how fascinated I was the first time I saw Ultron in Avengers. It was issue #162, published in 1977—I saw it much later because it arrived to Spain in the 80s. Here's how artists changed Ultron's appearance through the years:
Care to see the first full-body shot of the foe of the second Avengers movie? Of course you do. Ultron's torso and limbs are a bit overdesigned for my tastes, but it's not like he's a Bayformer or anything. Plus, he's got some great gams for a robot bent on destroying all of humanity.
The trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has arrived online a bit early, showing off Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor and Ultron himself in creepy, creepy action—along with the MCU's version of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Update: Official trailer now up in all its hi-res glory!
Today, Marvel is displaying a whole slew of props from Avengers 2 — including Ultron's Mark One (the body he cobbles together for himself before attacking Earth's mightiest heroes) and Captain America's cracked shield.
There are no questions about zombies, the ending of Man of Steel, or superhero genitalia in this week's mailbag. I should be happy, but instead I'm just suspicious. What are you people planning?! Hrmm. Anyways, you'll have to content yourself with the best Avengers stories, why The Dark Tower can't be animated and a…
Yesterday director Joss Whedon unveiled the new big bad for the Avengers movie series: Ultron, the terrifying, polymorphous robot created in the comics by Avenger Hank Pym, AKA Ant Man. And today, Whedon told io9 that this will be an Ultron whose origin story doesn't include Pym.
We're still waiting for that robot uprising, but meanwhile, killer robots have already conquered our hearts. But who's the most amazing killer robot of them all? Make your case below!
Marvel's newest mega-event kicks off as Ultron takes over New York City, Hellboy's origin is revealed, and the My Little Ponies face the most evil pony ever, all in this week's comic releases!
What's that? You've never even heard of the apparently-indestructible robot who's caused trouble for Marvel Comics' Avengers many times in his 40+ years of existence? Sit back and learn. Soon, you too will kiss his robot foot.
As soon as we have convincing(ish) androids and gynoids, we'll create pleasure-droids. And soon after that, those sex-machines will use their super-powerful thigh muscles to try and kill us. Here are 15 examples of the sexy robot death that awaits you in the future.
