Jim Hammond was created by an unknown scientist and fought at some point during World War II alongside Captain America and Namor. Sometime during Ultron's conquest of Earth he discovered Wonder-Man and Jim Hammond and used the brain pattern of Wonder-Man and Jim's artificial organs to create Vision as a back-up plan to defeat the heroes; however, the trio did not agree with his views on humanity and rebelled.

Using Simon's expertise in electrical engineering, and scientific construction concepts grasped during their time with Ultron, they built Salvation from the remnants of Earth-93787 as a protection from the Ultron Sentinels and the Zombies for those exiled beyond The Shield.[1]

During his time in Salvation, Hammond grew very close to Radiance and the pair were going to have a kid. The Human Torch, the Vision, and Wonder Man eventually saved Hank Pym of Valley of Doom after being exiled to the Deadlands.[2] The three heroes needed Hank to help them find a way to finally defeat Ultron, as Lord Ultron's creator was none other than an alternate version of him.[1]

After months studying Lord Ultron's design, Pym finally developed a plan to destroy him, and it was just in time, as the merged forces of Ultron and the Zombies were attacking Salvation; however, to accomplish their goal, the three founders of Salvation would have to sacrifice themselves.[3] Pym's plan was to use the refuge's force-field to absorb the Ultron Engine's hive consciousness, but he needed a greater mind to control them, the mind of the three founders combined.

After Pym told them his plan, Jim went to say goodbye to Radiance while Pym converted the ionic energy generator, being saved by his former lover, Janet Van Dyne, when the force-field was breached and the Ultron Engine invaded Salvation.

Afterwards, Pym activated the generator and modified Iron Cross' cyborg tech so that she could replace the Human Torch in the plan and stay by Wonder Man's side. Vision, Wonder Man, and Iron Cross then merged, becoming the boss consciousness for Salvation's shield that was now composed of the ever-vigilant Ultron Engine army, with the exception of Lord Ultron and the zombie leader, Magneto, and life began anew for those still living.[4]


Seemingly those of the Human Torch (Android) of Earth-616.
