User/Possessors: Red Skull
First Appearance: (unidentified) Avengers:
Tech-On#3 (December, 2021);
(identified as Ultron-I units) Avengers: Tech-On#4 (January, 2022)
Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Ultron-I units
shared a hive artificial intelligence amongst the entire group of units
and each unit was superhumanly strong, allowing them to grapple with
the armored Iron
Avengers. Each unit was imbued with Infinity
Mirror Shard energy, which it could channel through its fists, but
despite having superhuman durability, they could be destroyed with
similarly IMS-powered weapons such as Do Hatsu-10 mode of an Iron
Avengers' tech suit.
History: (Avengers: Tech-On#3) - Following the defeat his Mirror Loki construct composed of Infinity Mirror Shards (IMS), the Red Skull opted to create more constructs to take down the Iron Avengers. Again deciding to go with something familiar to the Avengers, the Red Skull used Infinity Mirror Shards to create an army of metallic Ultron robots to counteract the Iron Avengers.
(Avengers: Tech-On#4) - The Ultron-I units were sent to various locations around Tokyo, Japan to draw out the Iron Avengers. Splitting into teams of two, the Iron Avengers managed to destroy some of the units but for every one they destroyed, the Red Skull, speaking through the units to gloat at the Iron Avengers, created more to replace those destroyed. Iron Man soon called in assistance in the form of his own Iron Shinobi drones, figuring he could force the Red Skull to use up his Infinity Mirror Shard reserves by continuing to replace the fallen Ultron-I units. While somewhat successful at draining the Red Skull's IMS supply, the Iron Avengers were subsequently overwhelmed by the sheer number of Ultron-I units until the Black Panther arrived and destroyed all of the units at once using his tech suit's Do Hatsu-10 mode. Angered that he had been forced to waste so much IMS energy replacing the fallen Ultron-I units, the Red Skull moved forward with his next plan: the giant Scream Supreme.
(Avengers: Tech-On#6) -
After acquiring a sliver of the Reality Gem, the Red Skull recreated
some of his previous IMS constructs including one Ultron-I unit.
Teaming the Ultron-I unit with the recreated Mirror Loki construct as
well as a new Green Goblin construct and the IMS symbiote-bonded
Wolverine, Red Skull ordered his servants to slay the Iron Avengers.
Captain America faced off against the Ultron-I unit, who quickly gained
the upper hand against the hero. Black Panther soon arrived and severed
the Red Skull's link to the Reality Gem via sheer willpower, causing
the Red Skull to lose his IMS-created powers and the constructs
(including the Ultron-I unit) to dissipate into nothingness.
Comments: Created by Ryoji Sekinishi, Jim Zub, Jeffrey "Chamba" Cruz, Kenji Andoh and Jun Goshima.
While the Avengers: Tech-On mini-series showed main
story credits of Jim Zub (writer) and Jeffrey "Chamba" Cruz (art), they
also credited Ryoji Sekinishi with the mini-series' story concept and
Kenji Andoh and Jun Goshima with the character designs of the villains.
Therefore, I have included them in the list of creators as well.
