RE: Quip Free Thread
So; has anybody heard about Ultron's newly revealed backstory? I'm afraid that it's a lot less interesting than I'd have hoped:

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

Theoretically, couldn't that problem be solved with a high atmosphere nuke?

There are very few problems that nukes can't solve but they probably can't fix the marauding robot with prep-time: EMP shielding is cheap and effective.

That's an entirely reasonable question though and a recurring problem for the series.
Chitarui Invasion? Solvable through conventional warfare.
Hydra's takeover the world? Requires one guy with three stinger missiles.
The other much less effective HYDRA takeover of the world in Iron Man 3? Solvable through conventional warfare.
The Dark Elves attempt to fuck the universe? Solvable through conventional warfare. (Though probably not fast enough.)
Hammer's attempt to make butloads of money further Hydra's agenda? Solvable through conventional warfare.
The Ironmonger's dickmongery attempt to further Hydra's agenda? Solvable through conventional warfare.
Hulk rampage? Back off then put Banner in an induced coma.
Hydra's fuckoff scale plane? Solvable through conventional warfare.

There hasn't been a single problem (on earth) in the entire franchise that can only be solved via the protagonists intervention.
