Merging biology with electronics isn’t a question of if, but when. Some enterprising biohackers have even decided that the time is now. Google-parent Alphabet appears to be preparing for our cybernetic future with a new patent for electronics that can be injected onto your eye.
We’re big fans of The Vision’s fashion sense here on io9, but what were his best comic book outfits? For the dedicated follower of synthezoid fashion, Brian Cronin over at Comic Book Resources has collected the Vision’s finest bits of wardrobe selection throughout his comic book history, and it’s fantastic.
I’m pretty sure other things are going on in this new footage from Civil War. Perhaps even delightful things! But The Vision is wearing a goddamn sweater in one of them, and now all capacity for critical thought has escaped me.
The Vision comic has come to the point of no return for its synthezoid hero—a true turning point, in what has been an incredibly haunting and fascinating journey so far. But Marvel’s best current comic isn’t going to get any less bleak. In fact? It’s only going to get darker from here.
Scientists have used stem cells to cure blindness in rabbits—which could be incredible news for visually impaired people.
The Vision is one of the biggest surprises to come out of Marvel Comics in years. The company announced the android would get his own comic, just as the character was about to appear in Age of Ultron, so fans expected a light, action-y series to cater to movie fans. The Vision took that preconception and smashed it to…
It’s been a remarkable year for comics. Huge publishers like DC and Marvel have rejuvenated their line-ups with tons of amazing books; beyond the big two, there’s been some of the most compelling, challenging material in the industry we’ve seen in years. It was hard to narrow it down, but here’s 20 of 2015’s best.
Last month, I was completely blindsided by the creepy, compelling opening to The Vision. Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta crafted an incredible first issue that explored the Avenging Android’s new family, and how coldly inhuman they were—but the second issue gives them some dark, fascinatingly human problems.
Okay. So Halloween might be behind us, and I can’t quite believe I’m saying this about a Marvel comic—especially one starring the Avenging Android that was one of the most charming parts of Age of Ultron. But the first issue of The Vision is a strangely chilling, page-turner of a comic. And it is fantastic.
Look, I know in the comics that Vision has purged his emotions multiple times, but that’s no excuse to turn an innocent Mr. Potato Head into the creepiest thing imaginable.
While there’s been many rumors circulating about just who is fighting who in the next Captain America movie—but newly emerged promotional art has given our first look at just who is standing with Captain America or Iron Man in Marvel’s impending superheroic dustup. There’s even a surprising face or two... spoilers…
Whoa. We’ve been getting dribs and drabs of reveals for Marvel’s upcoming universal reboot over the past week, but it looks like the jackpot has just hit: Comics retailers across the world have received previews for 45(!) of Marvel’s new series, and it sounds like it’s a whole lot of crazy.
He may have had to wait for all the main Avengers to get their toys first, but finally, here he is: Behold, The Vision, in the plastic/synthezoid flesh! Hot Toys’ latest Age of Ultron figure is so pretty, it’ll prove that even
a wallet can cry as you fork over the cash for this Avenging Android figure.
Hot Toy’s oddly adorable line of “Artist Mix” vinyl toys is back, and although there’s lots of cool looking stuff to be seen, let’s be real: The best of the bunch is the wonderful little vinyl Vision.
Age of Ultron is already breaking box office records across the world, and will finally make its way to US theaters tomorrow — and already one of the things that’s gotten people most excited is the movie’s take on the Vision. Want some cool swag for the Avenging Android? Look no further.
I can't think of another comic book movie character to have more "first looks" than the Vision. We've had blurred posters, concept art, promotional art, teasers in behind the scenes footage, and the briefest of looks in the trailers. But this might be the first time we've seen the full character, in the android-flesh.
Nearsightedness is reaching epidemic levels worldwide, but nowhere is its rise more prevalent than East Asia, where as many as 90% of teenagers and young adults now suffer from blurry distance vision. Why the sudden spike? Book work has long been blamed, but recent findings point to something else.
A bunch of new Avengers: Age of Ulton promo art has been unveiled, and with it Ultron's new origin story. Plus, take a look at Vision in his full, caped beauty.
