It'd almost be easier to have you read the last 4 issues of Avengers Academy to explain all of this, since the Runaways appearance there did address Ultron's son Victor Mancha. But I'll push on! Essentially, Ultron, going back to his proud tradition of sending his children to kill the Avengers and failing miserably, used his technology to impregnate a woman in California with a son that would have advanced technological powers. The son would then be compelled to be a hero when he became an adult, via implanted suggestions, then turn on the Avengers and murder them all. His plan was foiled when one of these future Avengers, whose present-day counterpart was a Runaway, went back in time, warned her past self and teammates, and things got resolved sort of. The son recently made contact with Henry Pym, who has improved the lives of the Runaways by building them an educational robot, and access to Avengers Compound. This will almost certainly end badly.
I actually just got the Bloodties trade yesterday (For a dollar! Yeah!) so no scans just yet, but essentially, it's worth remembering that Cortez is a slimeball who believes in Magneto's ideaology about as much as Captain America does. He manipulated the religion of the Acolytes to gain power, which all of his moves there in Genosha was meant to build. Killing Luna as a failure of Magneto's genes was part of his plan to radicalize the Acolytes even moreso.
