"I am the summit of perfection in this universe!"
Ultron, known to be a major villain of the Marvel comic Avengers, is a major antagonist for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, which is also where he makes his playable debut. He had previously appeared as one of the Marvel character cards for the Heroes and Heralds Mode in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Ultron was first created by founding Avenger, Hank Pym (the first Ant-Man) in Cresskill, New Jersey, as part of his experimentation in the field of highly intelligent robotics. However his intelligence resulted in his rebellion against his creator, brainwashing Pym into completely forgetting Ultron. The robot proceeded to begin upgrading himself, advancing from Ultron-1 to Ultron-5. Under the persona of the Crimson Cowl, he formed the second incarnation of the Masters of Evil and took on the Avengers.
Afterwards, Ultron spent most of his time working solo due to his genocidal attitude towards humans (and organic life as a whole). At one point, he created Vision, a “synthezoid” whose body was a copy of the first Human Torch, and his mind was based on the Wonder Man; ironically, Vision eventually became a prominent member of the Avengers. As time went by, Ultron was destroyed numerous times, but he manages to rebuild himself, often giving himself a new number to reflect this.
