|Vision - Paul Bettany (Source)|
His first appearance was in The Avengers #57 (1968) but most people know nothing about him.
Here are 10 amazing facts about Ultron.
1. Vision is not a robot, but a synthezoid. He's "human in every physical way except that he was artificially constructed."
2. Vision can become lighter than air and pass through walls. He can also become super heavy, up to 90 tons, and become invulnerable. That's heavier than 11 elephants.
3. Vision has the brain of the (presumed dead) superhero Wonder Man.
4. Magneto is his father-in-law. In the comics, Vision marries the mutant Scarlet Witch. Scarlet Witch is Erik Lehnsherr's daughter. The marriage was eventually dissolved.
5. The android has two kids thanks to Scarlet Witch's "Hex" powers.
6. Ultron is Vision's dad. In the comics, Ultron and Dr. Phineas Horton created the Vision from the android "The Human Torch."
7. The body of the Torch was first seen at the Stark Expo in Captain America: The First Avenger.
8. In 1968, the Philip K. Dick story "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" was hugely popular. Stan Lee told comic writer Roy Thomas to make a new character for the superteam "The Avengers" and that it had to be an "android." He never said why.
9. According to the "Justice League Companion" by Michael Eury, Thomas was afraid Marvel would rip him off if he created an original character. So he reused an old 40s superhero named Vision. His history and powers are completely different.
10. In the comics, Tony Stark's human butler Jarvis was hypnotized by Ultron into betraying the Avengers. Paul Bettany played Tony Stark's computer butler J.A.R.V.I.S. in Avengers. In the comics, Ultron tries to use Vision to attack the Avengers.
