In the Marvel Comics Unlimited series, we've seen the Ultimate Costume. This was a variation on the traditional black costume and mask that was featured in the original comic. It featured a more modern look, and included a lot of other upgrades and changes. In the Ultimate Costume, Spiderman had a spider web on his forehead. The arms had some additions, and his mask got a new look as well.
Ultron is a villain that first made its debut in the Secret Invasion storyline. In this book, several heroes had to be injected with an experimental serum that made them virtually immune to bullets (including those fired by Anti-Man). This made them perfect for infiltration purposes. Ultron made itself appear from behind a bullet, and then started attacking the Fantastic Four. Naturally, Cap and the other heroes were taken hostage.
It's rather interesting to see a villain like Ultron, who is half man, half machine, trying to take over the world using such advanced technology. However, after the serum wore off, and most of the Avengers and Fantastic Four were restored to their normal state, there was one component that remained - and that component was very upsetting to readers. What made this part of the story so disturbing was that it took place during one of the few times where the superheroes seemed to be in conflict with each other - where there seemed to actually be some sort of peace between the good guys and the bad guys.
For that matter, after the Ultron incident, Cap seemingly went into a state of depression. He and the other Avengers began to bicker and fight each other more, rather than working together. In the Secret Invasion series, the villains were much more vicious than they had been in the past. Ultron was one of the most gruesome of the bunch. After being revived, and given a new personality, he turned into a better person.
But while we were seeing hints of bad guys getting better, we also saw hints of how the Avengers could redeem themselves and get the upper hand in the war against Ultron. This aspect of the storyline was rather interesting, as it showed how the Avengers were slowly Turning into the good guys instead of villains for the sake of making the villain look bad. There were some rather amusing moments when Cap and the other Avengers came up with plan after plan to take out the evil robots rather than make them fight directly.
There was also a rather interesting subplot involving Quicksilver and Rogue. The two had briefly become enemies when they went into a plane that was infected with the Ultron virus; and although they were intended to be allies, they went about fighting each other in ways that were both rather confusing and yet completely understood. It was a great touch that they were even able to have a friendly chat in the middle of a battle, as well as being able to quickly understand each other's goals and feelings. It made the story much more interesting to follow.
There was also quite a bit of tension in the final scenes between Quicksilver and Ultron. The two were meant to be allies, but because of the way the story went, we got the sense that they might actually be at odds with each other. It made the subplot rather interesting as the audience saw Quicks trying to kill off the android - while Ultron tried to stop him. It was a good bit of conflict for the series to build up to.
Overall, this movie is a fun watch. The visual effects are fantastic - especially for an animated film - and the fighting and stakes are high. The pace is fast-paced and there are many explosions and other things that catch the attention. Overall, this movie is worth checking out if you like superhero movies.
