Quote:It's the best of the current crop of Marvel books IMO. Instead of getting lost in continuity minutiae or resorting to cynical ploys to drive up sales with Avengers or X-Men guest star appearances it seems to be telling a neat little story about the definition of family via this family of androids.
Quote:Yep, it is a book that I wasn't really interested in but decided to pick up the first issue. I really appreciated the look at family in the latest issue - how Vision's duties as an Avenger were in conflict with his duties as a dad.
Quote:I also liked the understated guest appearance of Tony Stark last issue. No big "Guest Starring the Invincible Iron Man" on the front cover. Just a natural appearance of someone who could help.
Quote:One thing I love is how even though they're all logical they have differences of opinion that they each support via logic. So far I've found this quirk to be endearing and not annoying.
Quote:I'm hoping this book stays away from the events of other books for a long while...I kind of want this book to stay in it's own little bubble and grow without bringing up decades of Avengers history or drama between Wanda and Vision (and I'm also enjoying Wanda's book...I want Vision and Wanda to be far away from each other for a while)
Quote:I'm hoping it will be similar to Fraction's Hawkeye - tell a story that is self contained and isn't impacted by the events and other things happening but where other characters can guest star, as appropriate.
Quote:I'd also be very happy if once King is done his story the series comes to an end (just like with Fraction).
I concur. I want this run to be kind of self contained. Like I don't need to see Vin and Viv join the Young Avengers or for Virginia to become Marvel's premiere new super villain. I like where the story has went so far without the bigger Marvel universe intruding.
