After having been reconstructed by the Vision, Ultron returned to his old base in the Lower East Side to plot the total destruction of mankind. Seeking to make up for betraying the Avengers, the Vision followed Ultron back to his base and learned the robot's plot to destroy New York City in a giant nuclear explosion.
