Wondering what the Vision is up to? Well it turns out he wants to be just like everyone else. Against his fellow Avenger's wishes, he has created himself a family of three, a wife, Virginia, and two kids, Vin and Viv, to share his new home with in the countryside. He still fights bad guys, but hopes to get a paying job soon enough so he can support his family. They're not everything he expected them to be however.

OK, this was creepy and very good at creating an atmosphere. ( )

This twisted domestic drama featuring androids and violence would be more appealing if its dark delights didn't come at the price of the reputation of a longstanding honorable character from Marvel's vast stable of superheroes. I've never been a fan of the Vision, but it makes me sad to see him sacrificed this way no matter how well done the story and art. ( )

Not what I was expecting at all. Much darker and deeper, more philosophical. What happens when human desires and emotions are decoupled from human biology. ( )

Donovan, you should have warned me about the animal deaths. ( )

Book description
The 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 and molded him into a weapon. The place where he first rebelled against his given destiny, and imagined he could be more — that he could be a man. There, he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Two 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! They're the family next door, and they have the power to kill us all. What could possibly go wrong? Artificial hearts will be broken, bodies will not stay buried, the truth will not remain hidden, and the Vision will never be the same. Collects Vision (2015) #1-6.
