The Vision, Volume 2: Little Better than a Beast

The Vision, Volume 2: Little Better than a BeastThe Vision, Volume 2: Little Better than a Beast by Tom King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As The Vision's perfect family continues to unravel, Victor Mancha comes to town to spend some time with them. However, he has ulterior motives...

Tom King's run on The Vision comes to an end. We finally find out who the source of Vivian's brain patterns were, the source of some odd behavior on the part of the Vision over the course of the series, and whether or not The Vision is an ass-kicking machine that can take on the entire Avengers roster.

Vin's Shakespeare obsession foreshadows quite a few tragedies in the series. By the end, everything is in wreckage and the lives of The Vision and his perfect family are irrevocably changed.

The art team did a fantastic job on this volume, particularly Michael Walsh, Gabriel Hernandez Walta, and Jordie Bellaire, the tone perfectly matching the off-kilter, sinister, yet sometimes sweet feel of the series.

Too bad the series only went twelve issues. I could read about The Vision and his strange family for years to come. Four out of five stars.
