"It's an utter cliche, but if you've read this far you probably know I don't mind a well-polished cliche: the one song that always comes to mind when writing VISION is Nina Simone's "Sinner Man." I feel like every issue could cut to black and have that song play over the credits. That heavy, repetitive rhythm beating in you as Simone sings about a man running for help, begging for salvation, trying anything he can and not getting anything for all that effort -- yeah, that's VISION right there." -- Tom King

"Victor Mancha was [editor Wil Moss's] idea. My first outline had the original Human Torch in this role. Wil came to me with Victor and I realized that there was so much more depth there..." -- Tom King

"Don’t tell, but I kind of love how complicated the Vision’s current history is. I’m a huge fan of continuity, and I feel one of the things that makes comic books great is this insane and awesome attempt to link decades of different creators’ visions (visions!) together. It’s an honor when it’s your turn to add to that, and part of what comes with that honor is the responsibility to protect and respect the decisions of the incredible writers that came before you.

"Vision's entire fifty year history - his multiple deaths, loves, and families - will impact this title; hell they’re the backbone of the title. Now, obviously, you don’t need to know any of that history to read this book. My job is to introduce those elements in an organic and interesting way, basically to make them a natural, easily-understood part of my narrative without boring you with exposition. Really, it should be like your own backbone: you don’t think about it too often, but you’re glad it’s there."

"You love every twist and turn in the Scarlet Witch-Vision romance? That's insane. An insanity I deeply share!" -- Tom King

Seems apt to put create a thread for those who have now, since it's out in the USA (a week after we got it in the UK, so I've been very self controlled here), seen the latest addition to the MCU franchise.

What are your thoughts and opinions of Captain America 3: Civil War (or "Avegers 2.5" as I've seen it playfully referred to)

Of course, there will be spoilers in the discussion, so proceed at your own risk if you wish to remain unspoiled, plot wise.

"THE VISION feels to me so much like a book of the past. I feel like I'm following the formula set forth in SWAMP THING, SANDMAN, and ANIMAL MAN: Take a hero seriously, connect that hero to the real world, then watch the world crumble." -- Tom King

"The Visions are an atomic bomb being flown over the Marvel U. At the end of issue 1 they’re dropped from the plane. As we go forward, we get to see them fall. And we get to see the heroes of Marvel look up and in wonder…and horror." -- Tom King

'In my mind, Marvel never had it’s sort of “Vertigo” moment, where crazy creators took concepts like Animal Man, Swamp Thing, and Shade the Changing Man and grounded them in the everyday in order to create crazy, transcendent comic books. When I first saw [artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta’s] take on Vision, I immediately thought of those books. He makes the Visions’ world so real it becomes bizarre, as if he’s weaponized the uncanny valley in the service of story.' -- Tom King

"At its heart, I think comics is still a misfits' medium. It's a community of outsiders, a bunch of men and women who, for a myriad of reasons, have trouble conforming to the expected form, who seek a temporary escape from the good, hard pain that comes from pushing against the mold, hoping it'll finally break.

"Somehow, panels and words, spandex and punching, they magically ease all that. It doesn't make a a ton of sense to me why. But I'll take it.

"For me, The Vision is a chance to explore the alienation that sometimes attracts people to comics, the tension that comes from not being normal in a society that demands normality."

'My great fear for Vision is that people will hear the premise, see some images, and think I’m writing a TV series from 1987: “An Avenger creates a robot family and moves to the suburbs; wackiness and life lessons are sure to follow! Tonight at 8, 7 central!” Honestly, if I wasn’t writing the book, it’s what I would think. It really sounds like something we’ve seen before, a first season Star Trek: The Next Generation story where Data has to discover the meaning of family and the word “it’s.” But what I’m trying to do with this story is quite different than that.' -- Tom King

AVENGERS #0 showed that the Vision has altered his own mind so that when he remembers Wanda, he isn't affected by any emotions that go with it. Kind of what Rogue did to Carol Danvers by accident, the Vision did to himself on purpose, so every time he sees Wanda he won't want to lie down and die.

But...

"The theme of this story is integration, how a family that is not “normal” lives and thrives in a modern American community. Vision and his family are going through what millions of us have gone and are still going through. Can they be treated as equals? Can they be trusted? Because they’re different, does that somehow make them less?

All of these questions will lead to conflict for this family. And as these conflicts arise, The Vision will not respond the way you think he will. And then everything goes crazy.

"With some apologies to the great Donna Troy, this character has one of the most complicated and perhaps convoluted histories in comics. A close reading of his definitive origins in Avengers Forever reveals that the close reader now has a headache. And that was written like three Vision deaths ago.

With this series we’re going to strip all that noise away and return to the simple, sweet, and amazingly compelling set up Roy Thomas first gave the character: a robot built to be a weapon who wants to be a human, who wants to be a hero. He’s the powerful stranger who for some flattering reason wants to be like us. Vision is Data. Vision is Spock. Vision is Superman. Vision is who I was, the geek trying to fit in, realizing I never will, and realizing that that ain’t all bad.

These are pages/panels from a part near the end of JLA/Avengers where, after some reality shifts, Wanda and Vision are in their pre-John Byrne state where they're married but haven't gotten the kids yet. But then get information overload about their real reality and well...
