ONE STEP CLOSER TO A VISION SERIES: Avengers AI, Not iAvengers, Wired For April

The Vision, his perceptions of and history in the Marvel Universe, make him one of the most interesting characters in comics. Yet aside from a few mini's, the old solo limelight has never shone his way. Part of the mixed up family at the heart of the Avengers (Sorry Cap, Iron Man and Thor, I'm talking Wasp, Pym, Vision, Wonder Man, Ultron, Scarlet Witch), Vision now gets more of a groundswell, heading a team of artificial intelligences (intelligencia?) in the July debut of Avengers A.I.

What, no H.E.R.B.I.E. from the old Fantastic Four cartoons? How about my Android phone? I swear that thing has a mind of it's own.

Announced on USA Today, the ongoing series will be written by Sam Humphries, with art by Andre Lima Araujo. Avengers A.I. will be tasked with keeping an eye on a rapidly developing culture within our society, one that is no longer happy to be just tools of Mankind's build for the future, but part of it (if not ruling it).

The initial team is based from a redemption seeking Doombot, Ultron's son from Runaways Victor Mancha, Ultron's 'other' son an upgraded Vision, Ultron inventor Hank Pym, new character Alexis and Monica Chang - agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. See, still room for H.E.R.B.I.E.


  1. Oh no Skynet has awakened. Really though, this is a frightening though. The machines are alive! Even worst Ultron is alive. The villain I love to hate (I really do like Ultron).

    I'm definitely going to check this series out. The Vision is my guy (AI).

    On a side note, someone that's kick ass needs to be Yellow Jacket. That outfit was absolutely to hard for Pym.

  2. Thanks for the comments OA. Hank looks like he's back in the JB West Coast days with that reddish jacket. Thems were great days where he was treated as an inventive James Bond rather than a hero with an abusive past. Hopefully he can get kind of a reboot here too. Especially now Jan is alive again.
