The Vision wants to be human, and what's more human than family? He goes to the laboratory where he was created, where Ultron molded him into a weapon, where he first rebelled against his given destiny, where he first imagined that he could be more, that he could be good, that he could be a man, a normal, ordinary man. And he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twin ...more

I've been interested in the Vision for a long time but have only read a handful of comics featuring him. I know he's an android created by Ultron and used to be married to the Scarlet Witch. Oh, and he was in the second Avengers movie.

Tom King's series has The Vision create a family for himself. His wife Virginia, and teen twins Vin and Viv live with The Vision in a Washington DC suburb and try to lead a normal life.

I didn't know what to think of this at first. Now I do. I fucking love it!

I borrowed this digital e-comic from the Amazon Prime Reading Program. I was under no obligation to write a review, my honest opinion is freely given.

Notes:
I'm reading what I can on the characters Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff) and Vision because Disney Plus is releasing new episodes each Friday of (WandaVision) and it's the best thing I've ever seen!

Vision made himself a family so he could be more human.
description
He has a wife and twin children. They moved into a Virginia suburb. Vision goes to work while his children go to high school. They're just an ordinary family of synthezoids.

To me this reads like a failed Terminator reboot. It's like an Arnold Schwarzenegger terminator went back in time, not to kill John Connor, but to determine if humanity is worth saving. He then creates a wife and children so they can help him evaluate. Based on the rating

Okay, who knew I would like a stand-alone Vision series? Not me, he answered himself. The basic premise is: Vision creates a family for himself, and moves to a ranch style home in the suburbs. What can these Synthezoids learn from acting human? Should they act human? What does it mean to understand the way humans think and act? What is normal? These questions build our curiosity while also compounding a sense of dread. Then the penny drops and there's a twist. What a twist.

The Vision makes a family.

Already, this comic is unlike most superhero comics. Vision, a career Avenger, settles down in the suburbs with a family he has created for himself. From the premise, one could foresee the heartbreak and sorrow that comes from being a scion from the house of Pym. Hank Pym created Ultron, the mass murdering robot. Ultron begat the Vision. A scion from that house is fated to defy their progenitor, Ultron did to Pym, and Vision did to Ultron. I wonder what lies for the Vis

Well another All New All Different Marvel book knocks it out of the park. I was not sold on the idea of this book at all when I first heard of it. Then I read the preview pages and I had to get it. I was not expecting a philosophical debate on the use of the word nice. The family dynamic adds a much needed layer look at robo...I mean synthoids trying to be human and what kind of turmoil and horror that brings for them, along with the community they live in. The art does a wonderful job of convey ...more

Read through the weird collected of Spider-Man/Deadpool #1 with The Vision #1

I heard The Vision's series mentioned on NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour - instantly scrambled to collect the series. Maybe I'm being (Tom) Petty, but the most redeeming part of Avengers: Age of Ultron was The Vision being in the mix. Seeing him get an insanely cool sci-fi series of his own is beyond words.

This is the comic book I want to shove in everyone's hands, demand them to read. This is the series I'm rooting for th

An odd new comic by Tom King that explores what life would be like for The Vision if he had a family of sythezoids like him. As they are not humans they have trouble integrating smoothly into society but not for lack of trying. There is reference to things that will happen in their future that show that they may not be the family that Vision envisioned. The conflict at the end of the book furthers this theory. I am intrigued by this story - its new, different & VERY quirky.

Great Premise, Great Execution

Oh, all the Marvel stories that have been told about puppets wanting to be real boys are legion, this one is going to be special I think.

From the foreshadowing to the reconciliation of the Visions being constructs of perfect logic and reasoning living an imperfect life in the 'burbs. We are in for a grand adventure.

"Clothes that phase are costly. Do not stain them." Indeed.

This issue imagines a family of superpowered androids moving into suburban Washington DC, into a neighborhood where the denizens are the lawyers, bureaucrats, and political professionals. Vision is a member of the Avengers. Having been created by villainous Ultron, Vision changed sides to protect humanity, the android’s affinity for humanity subsequently led him to create his own family -- a wife and two children, Viv and Vin. When Vision takes a job as the Avenger’s liaison to the Federal gover ...more

A totally normal and meaningless existence

Very short but surprisingly smart. I loved the direction this took and how this very efficiently tackles existential questions about the value of doing meaningless things, or finding meaning in the pursuit of unobtainable goals. I loved how it addresses the concept of normal. By juxtaposing the completely ordinary lives of the protagonist family with their unnatural mental process and gifts. It hits humanity at its weak point, and makes us laugh. And I

Vision engineers his own family: his wife Virginia and the twins Viv and Vin. He moves into a serene suburb in Virginia and attempts to lead what humans consider a normal life but unpredicted thoughts settle into his mind as he sends his children to school and deals with the attention they are drawing.
Interesting in an eerie way.

Oh my good Lord. This may just be the best thing I've ever come across in my short career of reading comics. Told by an omniscient third person narrator in the past tense between scenes of direct dialogue, the narrator provides context, background information, and occasional, suspenseful glimpses of what's yet to come while the plot progresses in a linear fashion through the scenes the reader observes.

The art is superb. The art is unnerving. Even in moments where characters are smiling the smil

Really couldn't get into this.
Maybe I'm too old school, but it just didn't feel like a Vision story to me, but rather a sci-fi story that the Vision was shoe-horned into to sell it to marvel.

The whole 'something is wrong beneath the surface of suburbia' vibe has been done so many times that this just feels like 'oh, this again'.
Also doesn't help that the title character seems to spend too much time off stage and the rest of his family just wasn't that interesting to me.

Maybe the character has j

Tom King tells a creepy/cool story in this series (so far), but I'm especially enamored of the art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta and the coloring of Jordie Bellaire (who should get equal billing, because I'm not sure if I'd like this comic book as much without either of their contributions.)

Wow! A very interesting series involving The Vision, an Avengers character I've never known much about. The Vision creates a family and tries to play nice in the suburbs but thanks to the artwork and writing, a creeping dread seeps through every panel. Can't wait to see where this goes next. ...more

The coloring is great, and I'm not sure. lol It's pretty much all about, questioning ones own existence, trying to understand what their purpose in life is, and figuring out where they fit. The wife, daughter and son that is.

This is the best comic I have ever read. It is difficult to elicit a depth of emotion for comic book characters who are "synthezoids", but the writing team here was able to create real conflict and sympathetic characters in a limited number of pages/panels. ...more

Trying to be normal always lead to sadness, The Visions should embrace who they really are.
