    Another day, another Good Comic I Had A Hand In. Today it's AVENGERS v3 #22, the climax of the "Ultron Unlimited" storyline by Kurt Busiek and George Perez.

    Sometimes an issue just clicks. By this point, the AVENGERS team had done close to two years worth of stories--some of them good and some of them misfires to one extent or another. And we'd embarked on "Ultron Unlimited" in a deliberate attempt to ramp up the stakes, to answer all of those fans who said that the run up to this point had felt too safe, or too small. But on this issue, everything just plain worked--and I knew it even before the book went to press.

    I finally found a Ultron Marvel Legends action figure. I suspect you will start seeing them in major toy chains, such as Toys R Us, Walmart, or Target soon.

    I keep seeing the Ghost Rider figure in stores though...

    The action figure is based on the later Ultron, which isn't one of my favorite designs... I guess I just like the classic Ultron look. He's very poseable, according to the box it has "29 points of articulation", which is pretty insane !

    For hardcore Pérez collector, you will have to pick this up for the reprinted version of AVENGERS Vol 3, #22. The reprint has a "NOT FOR RESALE" on the cover as well as a new print date of "June 2005".

    All the original advertisements were replaced with Marvel or Toy Biz (no surprise).

    The comic is printed on flimsy newsprint paper, very similiar to DC's trade paperback books like WONDER WOMAN: BEAUTY AND THE BEASTS, except the colors looks muted and not as bright.

    Look for MARVEL LEGENDS SERIES 11: TASKMASTER which comes with a reprint of AVENGERS #196.

    Monday, December 05, 2005 10:54:52 AM

    Created by Hank Pym as an experiment in artificial intelligence, Ultron evolved farther and faster than its inventor had dared even dream. Retreating after a first, failed attempt to kill its creator, the robot rebuilt and improved itself, initiating a continuing pattern of modificatins and upgrades. Ultron later attacked the Avengers, because of their connection to Pym, touching off a years-long succession of battles. Seeking its goal of digital domination with cold, computer-like determination, Ultron is a constant, unwavering threat to Pym, the Avengers and every other living being on the planet. Features 29 points of articulation, and includes a 32 page comic book, character-dedicated vehicle and an exclusive Marvel vs. System trading card.

    Avengers #22 - October, 1999

    By Tom Brevoort

    AVENGERS #22, the conclusion of the "Ultron Unlimited" story arc, is, in my opinion, the single most successful issue of AVENGERS we've published since the relaunch.

    Everything seemed to be firing on all cylinders in this one. From the striking cover (the monochromatic red color scheme was suggested by former marvel editor Ruben Diaz) to the spectacular double-page spread of the team in battle with literally more than a hundred Ultrons, all the way to the final panel, all of the elements seemed to fall into place. I knew we had a winner when I was editing the script--a time during which I'm usually more skeptical.

    Readers seemed to like it as well--and the Avengers' entrance on page 15 was voted best moment of the year by the readers of WIZARD.
