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 that 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!

The Vision is truly worthy of all the praise it has been receiving. Because it uses one of the lesser known superheroes, it isn't as tied up with continuity issues, and therefore has the freedom to do something unique. At first the Vision reads like a simple suburban American family story; the Vision, his wife Virginia, and their twin children Viv and Vin, have just moved to a nice neighbourhood in pleasant town, and their desire is just to live a normal life. They have a lot to learn about humanity, as they are synthezoids, but they are hopeful that they can. Their downfall lies in the fact that they have not had the experience of coping with unexpected situations and interactions with others. This leaves them vulnerable to anxiety, sadness, and other negative emotions. Each breaks in their own way as unfortunate events compound upon one another. The story, tone, even the art, slowly attain a horror vibe. This culminates in one final terrifying realization as the narrator explains P versus NP. The Vision's central question, "what would you do for your family", has been looked at before in comics, but never like this. The actions of the Visions resonate with us, but they also scare us because their bad actions are done for good reasons, and we are forced to wonder if we would do otherwise.
