Baby Ultron Is The Cutest Maniacal A.I. In This New Avengers 2 Toyline

I mean, just look at him! He may want to wipe out all of humanity to achieve his twisted sense of peace, but I wouldn't say no to this little cutie, or any of his equally big-headed friends. Hot Toys have finally brought back their Cosbaby series, just in time for Age of Ultron. » 3/09/15 12:40pm 3/09/15 12:40pm

Gaze Into The Creepy Plastic Eyes Of Hot Toys' Ultron Prime

Age of Ultron's big bad can look awfully creepy when he's working those James Spader-y robo eyeballs of his - and it looks like Hot Toys have captured them pretty perfectly in their latest figure. I'm not sure I want this figure on my desk, his eyes boring into my soul in judgement. Quit being so judgy, Ultron! » 2/12/15 11:30am 2/12/15 11:30am

All the faces of Ultron: The design evolution of the Avengers' archenemy

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 the 80s. Here's how artists changed Ultron's appearance through the years: » 1/26/15 6:27pm 1/26/15 6:27pm

The First Full Look At Ultron In All Of His Terrifying Robotic Glory

Care to see the first full-body shot of the foe of the second Avengers movie? Of course you do. Ultron's torso and limbs are a bit overdesigned for my tastes, but it's not like he's a Bayformer or anything. Plus, he's got some great gams for a robot bent on destroying all of humanity. » 10/24/14 8:20am 10/24/14 8:20am

Why the original finale to Evangelion is the only one that matters

There are no questions about zombies, the ending of Man of Steel, or superhero genitalia in this week's mailbag. I should be happy, but instead I'm just suspicious. What are you people planning?! Hrmm. Anyways, you'll have to content yourself with the best Avengers stories, why The Dark Tower can't be animated and a… » 11/20/13 8:00am 11/20/13 8:00am

As soon as we have convincing(ish) androids and gynoids, we'll create pleasure-droids. And soon after that, those sex-machines will use their super-powerful thigh muscles to try and kill us. Here are 15 examples of the sexy robot death that awaits you in the future. » 5/20/09 1:53pm 5/20/09 1:53pm

Could'a Been Contenders...

Wondering where Daleks, Cybermen and the Borg are? They're over in the "Do cyborgs really count as robots?" corner, although it's arguably worth pointing out that Daleks aren't really robots at all, just aliens inside weirdly-shaped suits of armor... that may as well be robots for all we actually care. I'm sure there… » 5/19/09 12:30pm 5/19/09 12:30pm

#1: The Manhunters

How deadly are they? They destroyed all life within Space Sector 666 because of a "programming glitch." How big is a Space Sector? Unknown, although the entire universe is split into at least 3601 of them, and Final Crisis claims that there are "thousands of worlds" within Earth's sector. So let's just say that's a… » 5/19/09 12:30pm 5/19/09 12:30pm

#2: Unicron

How deadly is he? He eats planets for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. And if they're populated, all the better; it adds texture, apparently.
Who's responsible? It very much depends who you ask; Unicron has been given multiple histories throughout the years, including being a fallen god who somehow became a robot, a… » 5/19/09 12:30pm 5/19/09 12:30pm

#3: The Cylons

How deadly are they? They destroyed the twelve colonies of humanity, committing genocide on a scale unimaginable to everyone except Glen A. Larson and Ron Moore.
Who's responsible? It depends on which version you're asking about. The original series had the robots built by a dying alien race also called cylons,… » 5/19/09 12:30pm 5/19/09 12:30pm

#4: Separatist Battle Droids

How deadly are they? Apparently, an unstoppable killing machine that continually causes trouble for the Republic and their Jedi forces during the many years of Star Wars' Clone Wars. Despite their apparent ineffectualness, the war continued for many years, therefore the estimated high kill-rate and higher ranking on… » 5/19/09 12:30pm 5/19/09 12:30pm

#5: Skynet/The Terminators

How deadly are they? They took over the Earth and are pretty much trying to destroy all human life, starting with a successful nuclear annihilation of three million people. You've seen The Terminator movies, right?
Who's responsible? The military. Sure, you could blame original creators Cyberdyne Systems, but I'm… » 5/19/09 12:30pm 5/19/09 12:30pm

#6: Sentinels (The Matrix)

How deadly are they? They took over the Earth and keep humans around only as batteries. Which, you know, is potentially an environmentally solution to the whole need for energy (Although they did start out with solar power.
Who's responsible? Humanity en masse. The robots that ended up taking over the world started… » 5/19/09 12:30pm 5/19/09 12:30pm
