“Tom King has done something pretty great with this Vision series.”

Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family? So he heads back to the beginning – to the laboratory where Ultron created him as a weapon. The place where he first rebelled against his given destiny and imagined that he could be more – that he could be a man. There, he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition – or is that obsession? – the unrelenting need to be ordinary. Behold the Visions! Theirs is a story of togetherness and tragedy – one that will send the Android Avenger into a devastating confrontation with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

When The Vision decided he wanted to have a family and create his own, it’s no surprise it didn’t turn out quite as well as he’d hoped.

Tom King has done something pretty great with this Vision series. He added a lot of depth to the character—which is something hard to do considering Vision is an android. I personally haven’t read a whole bunch of Vision stuff before this—other than whenever he was part of a series I was currently reading. With that being said, I don’t feel like I missed out on anything with the way Tom King was able to weave in parts of the character’s history without it feeling forced at all. And with this being a new take on the character, it really makes for a good starting point for anyone who wants to get into more Vision books.

In the past it’s been hit or miss for me when it comes to the art of Gabriel Hernandez Walta, but I really enjoyed it in this series. He did a very good job with the way he was able to give each member of the Vision family a look of their own, but still keep each character similar enough looking that they have a family resemblance. He also did an awesome job of being able to show different expressions and feelings through what are essentially android faces.

I know I’m late in checking this series and all the surrounding hype involved out, but there is one good thing to be said about waiting to read this: I got to sit down and basically read the whole thing in a few days—which is always nice when you have a series this good. I definitely recommend you folks checking it out.
