That second half of that headline right there? Basically the entire premise of The Vision as a comic series, in all honesty.
So for those not following along with the nightmarish, endlessly compelling comic that is The Vision (and honestly, you bloody well should be), Vision and his family of synthezoids have a new pet dog. The little green mutt, introduced in The Vision #6, is kinda cute once you get past the blank synthezoid eyes and the fact that he can float and phase through objects like his masters.
His name is Sparky, but that name comes from a long list of entries sent in by readers at the request of Vision writer Tom King. The latest issue of the book, The Vision #8, ends with a list the fan-submitted names showing us what might have been for the little robot-doggie.
Lots of good puns in there (I’m fond of Wi-Fido, honestly), and naturally, a lot of ‘Vi-’ names to capitalise on the names of Vision’s family—Vigil, Vin, and Viv. Cute, right? NO, OH GOD NO.
