The Vision was introduced in the pages of “Avengers” #57 (October 1968) by writer Roy Thomas and artist John Buscema. The artificial man originally attacked the Avengers on the orders of his “father” the artificial intelligence Ultron but later realized the error of his ways and joined the team. James Spader was announced in August of last year as playing the part of Ultron making the Vision’s addition a logical one.

Since the character debuted in 1968 the hero has gone onto great success as a hero and an outstanding member of the Mighty Avengers. The Hollywood Comic Books Examiner takes a look back at the history of Marvel Comics’ Vision.
