History:
(Avengers III#0, 19-22) - Ultron's forces abducted Grim Reaper, Henry Pym, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Wasp, and Wonder Man, recording their brain patterns. After Ultron was destroyed by Pym, Alkhema escaped with the brain engrams.

(Avengers: The Ultron Imperative (fb)) - Alkhema used the brain patterns to create robos of Grim Reaper, Henry Pym, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Wasp, and Wonder Man, but she viewed them as flawed and unstable. She considered destroying them, but then decided it would be more fun to let them destroy themselves.
    The Robos practiced beneath Klein Towers (the site in which the Vision was created), but their mock combat nearly brought the building down. They then decided to venture out, adopting their true roles by replacing their progenitors.
    Meanwhile, Alkhema relocated to
a base beneath the tomb of Amenhotep III, Al-Luxor, Egypt, where she created various Robos that were amalgamations of the progenitors. She had these Robos establish the subterranean city of Robotopia, where they could dwell.

(Avengers: The Ultron Imperative) - The primary Robos spread chaos across New York, posing as the Avengers, battling one another, and pretending to fix things, but instead just making them worse. Their activities attracted the attention of the true Avengers (and Grim Reaper), who tracked them to Klein Towers and defeated them in battle. They self-destructed, intending to wipe out an entire city block, but Thor channeled the blast into another dimension.

 

 

 

    The Avengers tracked Alkhema to her Egyptian base, where they encountered the amalgamated Robos. After a brief skirmish, the Robos were uncertain how to proceed, realizing that they risked injuring the progenitors if they fought the Avengers. They showed the Avengers Robotopia, but then Alkhema appeared and took command of them. However, as the Avengers struggled against Alkhema, Ultron arose and started a four way war between the Avengers, Bio-Synthezoids (the Robos' successors), the Robos, and Alkhema's War Toys, as well as Alkhema and Ultron himself. Alkhema was eventually destroyed by Hawkeye with an Antarctic Vibranium (Anti-Metal) arrow, and she destroyed her base and detonated her creations in the process.
