There are a few villains who are must-haves for certain characters through various translations. For Iron Man, one of them is Ultimo, the giant robot who wants to destroy the Earth for no discernible reason. For the 1990s Iron Man cartoon they used a good character on the bad season, which is a shame. But there was a comic adaptation and good fight came out of it, so at least something good happened.
“Wildcat” round 8
The Battlefield: Marvel Action Hour: Iron Man #3 (Marvel; January, 1995) “Ultimo” (loosely adapted from the episode “Rejoice! I Am Ultimo, Thy Deliverer”
The Promoters: Ron Friedman (story), Ted Petersen & Francis Moss (teleplay), Eric Fein (adaptation), Dario Carrasco (penciler), Andrew Pepoy (inker), Sam Parsons (colorist), and Dave Sharpe (letterer)
So the giant robot with eye lasers have been moping the Mojave Desert with Force Works, but a scan by Iron Man (hey, that rhymed!) allows Tony to come up with a plan to take the giant robot down a few pegs. First up: Spider-Woman, US Agent (who wasn’t actually in the series), and Scarlet Witch.
This give Century time to do his part.
The armored heroes’ job is to point Hawkeye towards the bullseye.
And finally Hawkeye lets the arrow fly right into Ultimo’s chest cavity, which is sealed back shut.
And so Force Works shows the power of teamwork. Now they just have to figure out where to store a giant robot.
