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.

So in #01, Vision heads to Counter-Earth with the rest of the squad to find Wanda. As usual, he's not happy, being the bitterest android.


(One issue later in #03)

...apparently it's not just Wanda and Pietro getting a grand old retcon.

But dude...dude you just met her, sweet jeezus. Wait how does ANY of this work!? Are they organic, techno-organic, the same thing that Phalanx were? 

Omg, either Wanda's brain patterns are in Eve or Eve's brain patterns are in Wanda or something, isn't it. The impending soap opera, I can feel it, it's coming.

They came to grab Wanda to make sure she didn't explode, how the fuck is this going to help!?

If you haven't read the book already, I recommend Avengers A.I., a 12-issue series about Hank Pym (following the events of Age of Ultron) leading a team of androids and cyborgs. The Vision was featured heavily there.

Also, may I ask what has been retconned?

The members other than Vision and Hank Pym are a reprogrammed Doombot (seen in Age of Ultron #10.AI, an epilogue to the event and prologue to Avengers A.I.), Victor Mancha of the Runaways (technical 'son' of Ultron due to his experimentation on an infertile woman) and an original character named Alexis. They're later joined by Jocasta (a chassis created by Ultron based on the Wasp, intended to be his companion) and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Monica Chang (not the Ultimate version). All twelve issues and two trade paperbacks (collecting #1-6 and #7-12, respectively) are currently available on the Marvel Comics App, Marvel Unlimited and Comixology.

Does this help? Also, may I ask are Wanda and Pietro synthetic like Vision?

The guy had technology capable of creating planets as well as sentient life, and forcibly evolving Galactus into inorganic energy; there's probably not too much that's off the table for him science-wise.

Well this just made that whole family tree a lot more complicated.

...Did Ultimate Vision get bored of her universe and escape to the 616 ahead of everyone else?

She died in Cataclysm 0.1

The whole event was terrible.

Eh, it's the 2000s. No robot can truly die while the Cloud is around.

There's an entire Doctor Who two-part story about that... though the Cloud was a little more literal, as the cloud was an ACTUAL global cloud, creating a worldwide rainfall laced with Cyber-nanotech, which was turning all the dead bodies in the world into Cybermen.

That, however, was largely awful

A shame too, since there was the germ of a good story there, perhaps the Cybermen being so desperate for more recruits that they experiment with reanimating dead bodies and it all goes awry, even for them.

I'm less convinced it was a story that should be told in Doctor Who though, a family show dealing with the reanimating of ALL the dead, when death is something kids DO have to learn about, but preferably not by way of imaging that recently passed-on grandpa might now be a murdering cyborg monster.

On the plus side, the Master/Missy bit was handled better than I expected, they never once misgendered Missy, or implied her female regeneration was anything less than "just something Time Lords can do and let's not make a fuss about it".

I did enjoy that last point as well - especially with the nasty implications of Derek Jacobi's final scripted lines "Killed by an insect! A girl! How...inappropriate." Smacked of...well, the wrong tone, y'know?

In retrospect it seems that it was her age he was looking down on rather than her gender.

Even after seeing the movie, Vision still sounds like Martian Manhunter from the Timm Justice League to me.

In terms of basic personality they can be pretty interchangeable.
