With fifty-one days remaining until Earth’s Mightiest Heroes make their triumphant return to movie theaters, excitement is at an all-time high. After all, the Age of Ultron is approaching at a startling pace and the trailers just keep getting better and better. However, many people may not know much about Ultron apart from the fact that he seems like a sleazy cybernetic version of every James Spader character ever. Why do some people claim Ant-Man invented Ultron while others claim he’s Tony Stark’s murderous little baby? What is his relationship to the Vision? Is he really such a bad guy? (Spoiler alert: yes, he is.) Don’t worry–I’m here to help.
