First Appearance: What If II#19/1 (November, 1990)

History: (What If II#19/1-bts) After the Eternal Starfox linked the Avenger Vision to the super-computer ISAAC, the Ultravision awoke with the vision to lead the world into a new golden age. Having taken control of every computer on Earth, the Vision laid out his plan to humankind. Nuclear weapons were broken down, large solar power stations were put up, and the homeless rates around the world dropped, as the global economy grew. The world combined, the superheroes of the Earth set out for Outer Space, where the New Mutants, led by Wolverine, planted a United Earth flag on Mars. The next century and a half were extremely prosperous for the people of Earth and now beyond. Their prosperity hadn't gone unnoticed throughout the Universe, and the Kree and the Skrull, seemingly eternal enemies, banded together to destroy the Earth.

(What If II#19/1) <In the year 2126> After learning of the Kree-Skrull agreement, the Ultravision called together a group of Earth's greatest warriors, amongst them the Asgardian Thor, the last surviving original member of the Avengers. The group set out to attack the Kree and Skrulls before they could attack the Earth. Starhawk immediately attacked Supremor, and killed him. While Commander America attacked a large group of Kree, Tachyon Torch and Jhen the Gammazon took care of the Skrull, who decided to flee instead of facing further casualties. Meanwhile, the Irondroid faced the Super-Sentry, who was too strong for the scientist. Seeing his teammate defeated, the Torch turned the Sentry into a puddle of melted plastic, while Thor fought the mighty Mega-Skrull, who overheated fighting the god, destroying himself.

Back aboard the Henry Pym, the team mourned the death of Irondroid, while the Vision told them that the people of the Kree and Skrull homeworlds were overthrowing their rulers, hopefully for new, more peaceful regimes to follow.

(New Warriors I#6) - These events were witnessed from the Earth-616 dimension by Uatu the Watcher.

(bts) In the next 4 years, Starhawk and Thor left the team to explore the heavens, but the remaining members and a new Irondroid, along with the Earth, continue to prosper under the guide of the Ultravision.

(What If II#36) <2130> The remaining members of the Cosmic Avengers subdued a ship of Skrull raiders, but they were quickly captured after they entered the ship. Trapped by an alternate timeline version of the maniacal cyborg Korvac, pulled from the future by the Timekeepers, the Avengers could only watch as he told them his plan to conquer this world and the Ultravision. Soon the Avengers joined the Guardians of the Galaxy as Korvac's pawns.

Like a Trojan Horse, Korvac and the hypnotized Guardians of the Galaxy sneaked into the Ultravision's headquarters in Deimos, a Martian moon, using the Avengers and the Henry Pym. As Korvac plugged into his sentral computer system, the Ulta-Vision sent a warning to John Fury Jr, the current head of SHIELD. SHIELD arrived on Deimos, but the Cosmic Avengers and the Guardians were nearly too much for them, until John Fury was pulled out of the battlefield by the Whisperer. When Fury returned, he shot the Avengers with an ultrasound ray, waking them from their hypnosis.

Due to their alien physiology, the Guardians remained under Korvac's hypnosis. As the Avengers and Guardians clashed, one of them realized something was wrong. Yondu, whose mystic senses were always heightened, jumped in the way of a blast meant for Jhen and the Torch, and John Fury was able to awaken the remaining members after modifying his ultrasound gun. United, the teams rushed to the Vision's main monitor, where Korvac's image had replaced the android's. The teams were then attacked by a group of "murdermeks", but Yondu again sensed something was wrong, and directed the Irondroid to Korvac's cyborg body. Irondroid plugged himself in, and reversed the broadcast of Korvac's unique mental patterns. Korvac sensed his defeat was near and directed the robots to attack the Irondroid, but it was too late. With a yell, Korvac's face was replaced with the Ultravision's again... This time, dead.

The Cosmic Avengers gave the Guardians of the Galaxy the spaceship Henry Pym and saw them off of the Earth. But while they weren't paying attention, the Whisperer plucked the Irondroid from this world.

(What If II#39) After helping to rescue the universe from the Time Twisters, the Irondroid was returned to the Cosmic Avengers, who welcomed him back.

COMMENTS: Created by Roy Thomas, RJM Lofficier and Ron Wilson

In What If II#38, Irondroid recalls from reading the files of the original Avengers the events that took place in Avengers West Coast#62. That last bit seems a bit curious, as the Irondroid’s world diverged from Earth-616 long before the events of AWC#62. - Per Degaton

That IS weird... but it's not the only anomaly. Note the US Agent's presence in What If?#19 as supervisor of one of the Vision's construction projects in space. I find it exceptionally hard to believe that the events that caused Johnny Walker to take that particular name (He refers to himself as USAgent!) could have happened in a world where the Vision ruled.
Call it an error and call it a day, I'd say.

Still, the events of Avengers West Coast#62 would be likely to still occur, as Immortus needed Wanda's power at that point for his scheme to work. Adding in the Avengers Forever retcons, which state Immortus desperately wanted to keep Wanda away from a man she could have a child with, and they'd possibly happen even sooner due to the effects of a stable Vision
being removed from Wanda's life that much earlier.
--TJ Burns

Despite the changes present in the worlds, it is possible that many of the same conflicts still did happen, they were likely just taken care of much quicker, with help from the Ultravision.

Real names and enhanced background stories were revealed by Jean-Marc Lofficier and published in the Avengers Assemble Handbook.

The characters of Earth-Vision Utopia are future alternates of, but not related to the same characters from other multiverses in any other way.

Commander America
(Steve Rogers V) Commander America, a descendant of Captain America (Steve Rogers), had enhanced strength via genetic enginerring and the super-soldier serum's enhancement with each generation. He also possessed and Olympic gymnast's agility. His most prized possession was the Adamantium shield that was used by Steve Rogers, preserved even after all those years. After Starhawk left the team, Commander America took over as the leader.
--What If II#19 (What If II#19, 36, 39

Irondroid (Original)
(Bill Hogan) An employee of Stark Interplanetary and descendant of Harold and Virginia Hogan, Irondroid was chosen by Ultra-Vision and trained by a group of experts. Despite that, his heart was never into the superhero game, as he would rather be in a lab than fighting an alien menace. On the Cosmic Avengers first mission, he was slain by the Super-Sentry.
--What If II#19

Irondroid (Second)

Jhen The Gammazon
(Jhen Walters) A clone of the She-Hulk created by the Zola Institute, Jhen possessed power to match. The group's strongwoman, Jhen was also the heart of the team.
--What If II#19 (What If II#19, 36, 39

(Stakar Ogord) When the Ultravision called the Cosmic Avengers together, Starhawk was named the active chairbeing. After the defeat of the Kree and Skrulls, Starhawk left the team to explore the universe. When the other Cosmic Avengers fought Korvac, he told them that he would later join the Guardians of the Galaxy, who he was using as pawns.
--What If II#19

Tachyon Torch
(Jim Storm) The descendant of Johnny Storm of the Fantastic Four and Nova (Frankie Raye), the Tachyon Torch's powers seemed to be at a higher level than his ancestor's, though similar. Possibly empowered after bathed in Tachyon rays. Extremely brash and cocky, the Torch often jumped directly into battle. His flames were powerful enough to melt the Super-Sentry, and in his flame form, he could survive in space without oxygen. Nicknamed "Tacky" by Jhen.
--What If II#19 (What If II#19, 36, 39

Thor's history remained the same as the 616 Thor's, up until the point where the Ultravision took over. Early in the Vision's reign, Thor helped him stop the destruction of the rainforest. Vowing to protect humanity for as long as he was needed, Thor stayed a hero to Earth's people until the fall of the Kree and Skrull, at which point he returned to Asgard.
