Summary:

As this thrilling and gritty run nears its conclusion, the series takes another life in jaw-dropping fashion. King and Hernandez Walta team-up for the eleventh issue in this twelve-issue series and it sure does not disappoint.

Hey there, ComiConverse readers!  Adam here. This is my first post as a new Contributor to ComiConverse and for my introductory bit on this site, I figured I’d give a review of one of the hottest books on the shelves now:  The Vision as written by Tom King with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta.

Review: The Vision #11

With series writer Tom King signing an exclusive writing contract with DC earlier this year, it’s been in the works to end The Vision after the twelfth issue.  With just one more month left of King’s run on The Vision, the action most certainly comes to a head in this thrilling issue.

The Vision #11 Synopsis

(SPOILERS!)

With Vin, the son Vision had created at the beginning of the series, murdered by the hand of his uncle Victor Mancha, Vision is hell-bent on exacting revenge and to put it bluntly, the whole situation doesn’t end well for one of the Avengers.

After the Avengers chose to incarcerate Mancha, more likely for his own protection rather than for any wrongdoing, Vision determines he must avenge his son’s death and murder the murderer.  Outside of the jail where Mancha is located, Tony Stark has assembled many of the heroes in today’s Marvel universe including both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, Thor, Beast, Blue Marvel, Captain America, Captain Marvel, and Doctor Strange to name a few in an attempt to thwart Vision’s plans.

While a battle ensues between Vision and the rest of the heroes, we see Vision’s wife Virginia and their daughter Viv sitting at the dining room table back at home.  With the utmost certainty that their lives are about to change for the worst, Virginia comes clean and admits to Viv that she had a role in the death of Viv’s friend Chris earlier in the series.  Understandably upset, Viv smashes the table they’re sitting at and phases through the ceiling, not to be seen for the rest of the issue.  What follows next may be the most gruesome scene in this particular series:  Virginia takes her frustration out on the family dog and beats the poor little guy to a pulp.

Back to the jail, we see Vision after defeating all of his colleagues outside and goes inside to complete his mission as he’s approach by his former wife, Wanda Maximoff.  Explaining to her that she can’t stop him, he incapacitates her and enters the cell where Victor Mancha is located only to see the hand of his wife Virginia phase through Victor’s chest and rip out his android heart.

The issue ends with Virginia telling Vision he should retreat home to comfort his daughter.

The Vision #11 Analysis

One word:  Wow!

This series has been one of the most unique books Marvel has put out in quite some time and it seems like it only gets better issue after issue.  The theme of the series has been quite clear all along:  trying to fit in a place where you don’t necessarily belong.  Vision, arguably one of the universe’s most powerful heroes, built his own family with the same powers he had and it’s become obvious that it’s been quite difficult for androids to assume the proper human way of living.

Virginia has had the hardest time adapting between the killing of Grim Reaper, Viv’s friend Chris, and Chris’ father.  After Victor inadvertently killed Vin as he uncovered Victor was spying on his family for Tony Stark and The Avengers, we saw Virginia become more and more unstable, to the point where she had to repeat herself many times to get her point across.

The way the series has played out, everything has been building to a point where a catastrophic event was going to happen that could very well alter future events in the Marvel universe.  With the death of Vin being tragic enough for me, I had a gut feeling Vision was going to play judge, jury, and executioner.

The way Tom King has written instills a certain kind of calm, yet unsettling, terror within the reader.  The way he uses captions as the narrator tells the story draws the reader in only to have them witness tragic, heartbreaking events happening to a family that just wants on thing:  to fit in.  With King’s stories, Hernandez Walta’s art is a pleasant complement to the series, bringing a gritty vibe that makes the reader feel how tired and upset each one of the Vision families characters really are.

While I was surprised that Virginia was the one to kill Victor, it will be interesting to see how the series ends in the next issue.  Viv has been confirmed as a part of the new Champions series debuted next month, so we know she’ll be around but Virginia?

She’s nowhere to be seen.

  29. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  30. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  31. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
