9. Mighty Avengers: The Ultron Initiative
The trailers have made it clear that Ultron will go through a number of evolutions in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but will that include looking like a human? It would certainly be a nice way of giving James Spader a cameo, but for more on this aspect of Ultron, “The Ultron Initiative” is a great place to start.
Set after the events of Civil War, it sees Iron Man’s pro-registration team face off with an Ultron who has taken control of Tony Stark’s biological armour and used it to take on the form of his mother; Hank Pym’s wife, The Wasp. This provides a fascinating look into the psyche of the villainous android and is new reader friendly too.
