Outstanding illustration of the new Ultron on the cover of Empire this week. I remember how fascinated I was the first time I saw Ultron in Avengers. It was issue #162, published in 1977—I saw it much later because it arrived to Spain in 1980s. Here's how artists changed Ultron's appearance through the years:

Ultron-8

George Perez—one of the classic Ultron illustrators—went back to the original classic all-metal design in 1977, introducing some minor modifications to his armor. It was then when Ultron became one of the main super villains in the Marvel Universe, with the Bride of Ultron saga that introduced his bride Jocasta—who later became part of the Avengers too. This is the first Ultron comic I ever read:

Ultron-9

Like an iPhone model ending in s, the new Ultron 9 by George Perez didn't get any external redesign in 1980.
