Essential Avengers, Vol. 3
When learning about a new character it’s imperative to start from the very beginning, and Ultron is certainly no exception! The third volume of Essential Avengers contains the landmark issues that delve into Ultron’s origin story; the creation of his “son” and later Avenger, the Vision; and the Oedipal love affair with his creator’s, Dr. Hank Pym (Goliath), wife, Janet Van Dyne (the Wasp). All of these qualities and more lay the foundation for nearly all of Ultron’s machinations to follow.
