really liked it

This book collects the very busy Avengers Annual where the Scarlet Witch and Vision are married, and then collects their four-issue mini-series.

The annual is decent, although there's a lot going on and it feels like there's a lot you'd miss if you're not up on all the ends and outs of 1980s comics.

The mini-series doesn't tell a complete story in and of itself, rather it teases what a series might be like. Issue 1 is kind of a standard affair with them moving into a house on Halloween and hijinxs ensuing. Issue 2 is more interesting in that it brings back the Whizzer who was at one point assumed to be the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's father. Wanda doesn't have the heart to tell him the truth and they try and help him free his actual son from an institution with tragic results.

Issue three features Wonder Man, from whom Vision's personality was drawn, coming to help a wounded Vision out. Issue 4 features a visit to Pietro to encounter Magnetto and learn a key fact about the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's life.

Overall, this is a solid volume. While it's not spectacular and there's ongoing arc, it nonetheless discloses some key moments for the character and is a worthy read for Marvel fans.
