In new and mysterious Avengers: Age of Ultron character profile graphics discovered on Reddit, more promotional artwork is revealed as well as intriguing details surrounding the origins and abilities of James Spader's titular villain and Paul Bettany's the Vision. According to the former character's profile, Ultron is "first discovered as a simple computer program hidden among the ruins of the Chitauri invasion of New York" before being experimented on by Iron Man, aka Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). "Setting out to exterminate all life on the planet, the unstable and emotional Ultron seeks to upgrade its mechanical body to an ultimate, unstoppable form. With an army of robotic drones and the ability to enter and corrupt any computer network, Ultron will stop at nothing to see humanity wiped out." It was previously declared that the Vision would be created by Ultron in The Avengers sequel, but the humanoid's profile suggests he will be programmed by the combined geniuses of Tony Stark & Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), and imparted with the ability to fly, project intense energy beams and change the density of his form." It also confirms the Vision will indeed help the Avengers take on their new artificial intelligence foe. Check out the art, which also features the Black Widow. What do you think?
