"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...

Been a month since this was released, apparently it's all but confirmed it's set post-Secret Wars, though I don't fully understand what that means yet, honestly.

It's heavy on the Pym/Ultron/Vision trifecta, and this is an image-heavy post, forewarned.

I posted Vision's bit from Avengers Assemble 2013 because I really didn't know where else Vision pops up in recent comics, but then I found out he was in this year's Uncanny Avengers run, so I decided to just get them and see what's happening.

Well, Vision's doing something. He's doing something a lot.

Hey guys been a looooong time since I've posted or browsed here. So glad to see some familiar faces still around, I missed you guys.

Anyway the Avengers 2 movie made me morbidly curious as to how Vision (and Wanda for that matter) was holding up in 616, if at all. There's a shit ton about what Wanda's been up to, but barely anything about Vision during all this time so, glad I found this issue.
First issue of the 2013 annual was focusing on Vision, and at least remembering that you know, he's alive now, and who he was before.

(Forgive me if my choice of scans or the sizes are odd, I haven't done this in a while)

Back in the 1990s, Ultron decided he should look beyond his "Kill all humans" philosophy.

Ultron may be a genocidal murder-bot, but he thinks ahead. "Plants and animals might someday evolve to be a threat to me. Better kill them all, too."

Three pages from WEST COAST AVENGERS #90 after the cut. Written by Roy and Dannette Thomas with art by David Ross.

Hi folks, let's go back to 1974 and the country of Vietnam. A country that had seen far too much war, and was about to see more.



"Wait," you say, "The Slasher? Who he?" He's also known as Buzzsaw and Razorblade, and this is his debut appearance. Six pages of eighteen in Avengers #130.

Interesting trivia: Bill Mantlo did the colors for this issue.

was mostly focused on Vision, with a solid story which he could project his issues onto. I'm not posting anything from the plot because I didn't particularly care, but anything related to the Magnus family has my full attention.

~3 pages from Avengers Assemble Annual )
