Whoa Nothing is creepier than the burbs.This seems to have fairly positive reviews, but there are those that thought this was pretty boring And I can kinda understand where they re coming from It s a slow moving story about androids Sorry.nthezoids Whatever At any rate, I get why this might not be some people s cuppa Also Hype Anything that gets too over hyped tends to be a letdown to me And this one has tons of rave reviews So, there s that, as well.Lower your expectations that s my motto Ok, s [...]
I Have Said It Therefore It Is Confirmed Whoa, that was fun I mean, what a character, just listen to the guy To assert as truth that which has no meaning is the core mission of humanity Or Hmmm, yes, this is typical of most human endeavors They change but they do not change Or The pursuit of a set purpose by logical means is the way of tyranny The pursuit of an unobtainable purpose by absurd means is the way of freedom This is my vision of the future Of our future I hear ya, Vision, I hear yaSer [...]
Tom King s Vision is literary sci fi, dark and satirical, with sharp commentary on race and humanity, life and death, in a Marvel super hero comic Extraordinary For a moment, as she listened to her family argue and laugh, Virginia felt content She belonged here They belonged here Everything in the end would be good This moment lasted 1.72 seconds.
The Vision builds himself a family and moves to the suburbs with them Things are great until they aren t.After reading the first issue of The Vision via Marvel Unlimited, I knew I wanted to read the rest Little Worse than a Man collects the first six issues.The Vision and his family experience prejudice from their human neighbors, Viv and Vin s classmates, and later, the cops Virginia lies to the Vision once and it snowballs, sending their quiet suburban life out of control I saw someone refer t [...]
I am not really into superheroes, so I had very little to no knowledge of The Vision before entering into this series It felt easy to give it a chance considering I really did enjoy Jessica Jones series, which had some parts superhero, and some parts mystery and crime.Good news is, you do not really need to know anything about The Vision, he is very well explained in this volume Other good news is that you do not need to like superheroes to actually enjoy this volume.Very simplistic and gripping [...]
I get into some spoilsies later in the review so I guess be warned The short version of this review is that the book is overrated, boring and poorly written and I wouldn t recommend it Ok, on with the review proper The Vision suddenly has a family His wife is Virginia, his son is Vin and his daughter is Viv oh the cute alliteration and they reside at 616 Hickory Branch Lane geddit, like Marvel 616, the main Marvel universe Not a lot happens for most of the book until something does and then it s [...]
They seemed nice I have no particular interest in Marvel s world of the Avengers, but this one surprised me Takes place in Alexandria, Virginia, where Avenger Vision moves with his wife and twins Suburbia Welcome to the neighborhood, toasters A darkly satirical commentary on contemporary American society through a domestic comic Here s two key quotes that may get at the philosophy and somewhat robotic tone of it all from Vision, who spouts this kind of thing and in this kind of tone throughout T [...]
I m halfway through this and it s REALLY boring Sounded like a fantastic idea, but nothing much is happening and there is very little humor or action and the dialogue is flat and well, boring Moving on.
I don t usually review any of the series I follow in single issues until they re released in trade, but I m making an exception for The Vision as it s one of the best comic books I ve ever read Hell, the term comic book seems insufficient to describe Little Worse Than A Man It s storytelling through sequential art at it s finest and I thought it was incredible from start to finish.Comic superstar in the making Tom King teams with talented artist Gabriel H Walta and fan favourite colourist Jordie [...]
The hype is real Aside from a select few comics I ve switched from floppies to trade waiting in the wake of Marvel s Secret Wars The comics are a bit affordable in collection, and I don t feel as obligated to continue reading a series in trades if the first one isn t very good But there s been a few series whose near unanimous praise has me itching to dig in, Ta Nehisi Coates Black Panther and Tom King s The Vision I d heard the series was an amalgam of Breaking Bad and the wackiest stuff the M [...]
As the concept of artificial intelligence is becoming of a reality in our current day and age, it is an idea that though has been used over the decades of science fiction, the relevant it becomes the we feel fearful towards it This is perfectly summed up in the first volume of Tom King s solo comic about Marvel s synthezoid superhero.Although he was created to be a weapon by the evil robot Ultron, the Vision s greatest desire is to be human and what s human than family Much to the reluctance [...]
A lot darker in nature than I thought, but a well told story none the less Lovely artwork, the story reminded me of a horror movie, but I can t quite think which one Maybe the shining, when the wife has realised that her husband is crazy It provokes some interesting debates about AI as well Exterminate
The Vision tries to slice off a bit of Americana home life for himself, only things don t go entirely as planned.Interesting concept, and the last few panels were just exactly what we don t want in an overpowered AI made flesh I thought it could have been effective in a smaller space though, it felt like it plodded a bit, just to build up the gasp at the end.
Also available on the WondrousBooks blog.From the moment I started reading The Vision, I felt that something was creeping in on me I knew that this was mostly supposed to be a dark comedy, at least from most of what I had read or heard about it However, that was not the feeling that I got from the volume itself.First and foremost, there is something that I really enjoyed the ominous chill running through the entire volume From the very beginning, I felt slightly disturbed by the characters, pert [...]
You know the Vision That red android from the Avengers, son of Ultron That guy from the latest Avengers movie Well, he decided to create himself a happy family, and it s gone very, very wrong Yeah, I thought that premise was kinda dumb, too Who knew this comic would be such a revelation.I am torn between this and Doctor Strange as Marvel s best new series of the year This brilliant, creepy, haunting story is so good, I can t wait for the next issue every month I would tell about the plot, but I [...]
The Vision creates a synthezoid family for himself, moves into the suburbs of Washington D.C and shit goes horribly wrong I love, and I mean LOVE, the art in this book The writing is smart, and I liked the suburban horror story angle I m a little concerned about the pacing a sort of droning tone punctuated by brief but brutal incidents of violence which has become a little redundant from chapter to chapter Also, my expectations are a little deflated because I am fairly certain that the ultimate [...]

Very cool story with a very good series direction.
To assert as truth that which has no meaning is the core mission of humanity.
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, or so it s been said for who knows how long It s one of those sayings where I always want to retort, as sarcastically as my voice can physically allow, Ah yes, it was good intentions that have led all the world s abusers, all the serial killers, all the serial rapists, all the career criminals, all the tyrants, and all the all too willing people who serve and enable them all astray towards Hell.Yet I must concede that Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez Wa [...]
Existenstial Horror That s the best way to describe this unique maxi series from Marvel, and it s a perfect example of the risks that Marvel is willing to take with titles, and it paid off in spades in this instance.There is little not to like about this title which, as I write this, is 2 3rds of the way thru it s run of 12 issues the writing, pacing and characterization are spot on, though this is definitely a new vision for the characters Pardon the bad pun , and certainly NOT the Vision you k [...]
This comic has a laughable formula, and in first look is a quixotic attempt to sell the family life of an Avenger Yes, Hawkeye worked, but here the variables are entirely different Vision is a synthezoid, and probably everyone s least favourite.King s take on Vision reminded me of Gaiman s Black Orchid run, reinventing a not so mainstream character, by embracing the original handicaps with fresh perspectives I read a little deep into fan letters and found these words of King himself For me, Visi [...]
Damn Wow Stellar writing, deeply creepy, with a Shirley Jackson vibe Can t wait to read the second volume.
Read as single issues The Vision wants a family He wants to find out what it is that makes him human Or is he human at all And what does it mean to be human When he creates a family of synthezoids, a wife and two children, things get even complicated As Vision tries to juggle his family life with his Avengers life, everything comes crashing down around him.Tom King is a big name in comics at the moment, for good reason Vision is amazing stuff It s of a character study than a superhero book, a [...]
Do synthezoids dream of electric sheeps Ok, an easy one but well deserved to cover the sad and doomed attempts of the Vision to live a normal life with a normal family Well, this is not a normal Marvel comic book No huge fights, no overboobed babes in spandex, no runts snikting their claws Rather a grim suburb, a poisoned atmosphere and lots of text And it s great, too I tip my hat to Marvel for endorsing such a different and interesting use of super heroes.
The setting seems oddly normal and cheerful until the murders start at which point an increasingly chilling atmosphere starts to set in Throughout the story Vision s family ask themselves philosophical and existential questions that affect their mental stability Or is it programming In the end Vision will have to choose between logic and family.Vision, his wife Virginia and their twins Vin and Viv have moved into a normal suburban residence Their cold nature is offset by surprisingly emotional q [...]
3,5 5 Still a very mature interesting book
Everyone s favorite synthezoid, having built himself the perfect nuclear family, moves to the suburbs and begins commuting to work His children go to school They meet the neighbors Everything is swell What could possibly go wrong What really impresses me about this series is the writing It would be easy to play the Artificial Beings Trying to Pass as Human in Suburbia for laughs Tom King goes for creeping dread We know some sort of apocalyptic scene is coming, because myriad hints are dropped Af [...]
Let me start by tempering some expectations There are no major super hero battles This is a subtle, commentary on humanity, with a dose of horror.The Vision decides to create a family wife and two kids who are just like him and move to the suburbs and live a normal life Through this setup, King examines what is a normal life How far would you go to maintain the perception that your life is normal Should can everyone live a normal life These questions and are what King are asking here and he giv [...]
