Nobodies POV

Royal Holloway, University of London.

Thor, dressed in casual clothes, waits for Selvig as he leaves the building.

"I like the look. If you're going for inconspicuous, though, near miss." Erik says "I need your help." Thor says

"It's dangerous." Thor says "I'd be disappointed if it wasn't." Erik says.

....

Back at Barton's house.

Fury meets with the rest of the team.

"Ultron took you folks out of play to buy himself time. My contacts all say he's building something. The amount of Vibranium he made off with, I don't think it's just one thing." Fury says

"What about Ultron himself?" Steve ask "Ah. He's easy to track, he's everywhere. Guy's multiplying faster than a Catholic rabbit. Still doesn't help us get an angle on any of his plans though." Fury says

"He still going after launch codes?" Tony ask "Yes, he is, but he's not making any headway." Fury says "I cracked the Pentagon's firewall in high school on a dare." Tony says

"Yeah, well, I contacted our friends at the NEXUS about that." Fury says "NEXUS?" Victoria asks "It's the world internet hub in Oslo, every byte of data flows through there, fastest access on earth." Banner says

"So what'd they say?" Clint ask "He's fixated on the missiles, but the codes are constantly being changed." Fury says

"By whom?" Victoria asks

"Parties unknown." Fury says "Do we have an ally?" Natasha ask "Ultron's got an enemy, that's not the same thing. Still, I'd pay folding money to know who it is." Fury says

"I might need to visit Oslo, find our unknown." Tony says "Well, this is good times, boss, but I was kind of hoping when I saw you, you'd have more than that." Natasha says

"I do, I have you. Back in the day, I had eyes everywhere, ears everywhere else. Here we all are, back on earth, with nothing but our wit, and our will to save the world. So stand. Outwit the platinum bastard." Fury says

"Steve doesn't like that kind of talk." Natasha says "You know what, Romanoff?" Steve ask

Natasha smiles mischievously at him. Victoria chuckles, hands on her hips.

"So what does he want?" Fury ask "To become better. Better than us. He keeps building bodies." Steve says

"Person bodies. The human form is inefficient, biologically speaking, we're outmoded. But he keeps coming back to it." Tony says

"When you two programmed him to protect the human race, you amazingly failed." Victoria says "They don't need to be protected, they need to evolve. Ultron's going to evolve." Banner says

"How?" Fury says "Has anyone been in contact with Helen Cho?" Victoria asks

....

In Korea.

Cho is creating a new body for Ultron. "It's beautiful. The Vibranium atoms aren't just compatible with the tissue cells, they're binding them. And SHIELD never even thought..." Helen says

"The most versatile substance on the planet and they used it to make a Frisbee. Typical of humans, they scratch the surface and never think to look within." Ultron says

Ultron breaks open the scepter's blue gem and a yellow gem that was inside floats out and lands in his hand. He places it in the head of the body.

....

Back at the Barton's farm.

"I'll take Natasha, Victoria and Clint." Steve says "Alright, strictly recon. I'll hit the NEXUS, I'll join you as soon as I can." Tony says

"If Ultron is really building a body..." Steve says "He'll be more powerful than any of us. Maybe all of us. An android designed by a robot." Tony says

"You know I really miss the days when the weirdest thing science ever created was me." Steve says

"I'll drop Banner off at the tower. Do you mind if I borrow Ms. Hill?" Fury ask "She's all yours, apparently. What are you gonna do?" Tony ask

"I don't know. Something dramatic, I hope." Fury says

"And Rogers." Tony calls out

Steve pauses and he turns to Tony, lifting an eyebrow. "What Stark." Steve asks "watch out for my daughter." Tony says

"Always do." Steve says

....

"I'm gonna finish re-flooring that sunroom as soon as I get back." Clint says

"Yeah, and then you'll find another part of the house to tear apart." Laura says "No. It's the last project. I promise." Clint says

He kisses her.

....

Later.

Laura watches them fly off in the Quinjet.

....

Thor and Selvig enter into a cave.

"This is it. The Water of Sight." Erik says "In every realm, there's a reflection. If the water spirits accept me, I can return to my dream, and find what I missed." Thor says

"The men who enter that water, the legends don't end well." Erik says

....

NEXUS Internet Hub, Oslo, Norway.

"A hacker who's faster than Ultron? He could be anywhere. And as this is the center of everything, I'm just a guy looking for a needle in the world's biggest haystack." Tony says

"How do you find it?" World hub tech ask "Pretty simple. You bring a magnet." Tony says

He starts to playfully singing as he conducts his search.

"Oh, I'm decrypting nuclear codes and you don't want me to. Come and get me." Tony says
