The Korvac Saga

Ultron's "bride", Jocasta (finally named here) is delivered inert to Avengers mansion, so that Hank Pym can study her. However, she comes to life, activated remotely by Ultron, and goes to him. The Avengers battle her at first, but Iron Man tells them to stop, since he has placed a tracking device on her.
