Plot

When Tony Stark and Eric Banner decide to create an AI capable of defending the earth, they don't bank on it becoming self-aware. Ultron, Stark's and Banner's creation, becomes hell bent on "saving the planet" and decides the best way to do that would be with a catastrophic level event, one that wipes humanity off the face of the earth.

As per usual with a Hollywood blockbuster, the AI has to go bad otherwise their wouldn't be a story to watch.

  • Iron Man - Iron man himself could be said to be a transhuman,
  • Captain America - A biologically enhanced super soldier, yep, he's transhuman.
  • Scarlet Witch - Able to get into people's minds and use telekinesis.
  • Quicksilver - Pretty much Marvel's Flash to a certain extent. Superhuman speed.
  • Vision - Created by Ultron, the AI.
  • Ultron - He's an AI gone bad, great Transhumanist plot device.
  • Falcon - Uses advanced technology in order to fly.
  • War Machine - He's like Iron Man.
