* ContinuitySnarl: Was the Vision's body rebuilt from the 1940's Human Torch? ''ComicBook/AvengersForever'' spends an inordinate amount of time untangling this question. (The answer: [[spoiler:Immortus used AppliedPhlebotinum to allow the Human Torch's body to exist twice in the same timeline, one of which was used to build the Vision and the other of which remained the Torch.]])

to:

* ContinuitySnarl: Was the Vision's body rebuilt from the 1940's Human Torch? Originally, the answer was a simple yes, but when John Byrne wanted to bring the Torch back without sacrificing the Vision, he retconned the character's origin. Busiek and Stern's ''ComicBook/AvengersForever'' spends an inordinate amount of time untangling this question. (The answer: [[spoiler:Immortus used AppliedPhlebotinum to allow the Human Torch's body to exist twice in the same timeline, one of which was used to build the Vision and the other of which remained the Torch.]])

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/UltimateVision''[[note]]This is a reimagination of the character in the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel universe, and bears little to no resemblance to the original character.[[/note]]


* TheWorfEffect: Much like ComicBook/{{Cyborg}} of the ComicBook/TeenTitans and ComicBook/RedTornado of the [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]], the Vision is often the first Avenger to be taken down in order to demonstrate how powerful the villain of the week is. The fact that he can be rebuilt after being destroyed certainly helps.

Added DiffLines:

* ThePowerOfTheSun: Has it installed in his forehead, as a gem that absorbs latent solar radiation and grants him his powers. Naturally, LightIsGood.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The Vision calls himself a "synthezoid" (a synthetic human being), and even protests and corrects people when he's called a robot or an android. The term, however, is exclusive to Marvel Comics, and has no scientific nor technological usage.


* BestServedCold: Dr. I.S. Bishoff, aka [[spoiler: the supervillain Isbisa]], waited thirty years to take revenge on Robert Frank.

* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: In ''All-New, All-Different Avengers'', he's somehow turned rogue, most likely at the hands of Kang the Conqueror. He's able to get [[ComicBook/MsMarvel2014 Ms. Marvel]] and ComicBook/{{Nova}} kicked off the team before attacking the Sam Wilson Captain America and Jane Foster Thor, leaving only Iron Man and [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Miles Morales Spider-Man]] left to face him and Kang.]]

* UnderwearOfPower: Vision wears a pair of yellow trunks as part of his iconic design. However, like [[TheDarkKnightSaga many]] [[Film/XMen other]] [[Film/ManofSteel superheroes]], his [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron live-action design]] abandoned the undies.

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Due to a bad case of MySkullRunnethOver, just before his 2015 miniseries began, Vision erased any and all emotions related to Wanda from his mind.



** For a while, it was deliberately unclear as to whether or not the teen Vision from ''YoungAvengers'' was a successor to the original, or simply the original Vision in a new, younger body. It turned out to be a case of the former.

** Also notable in their origins, both Ultron and Vision turned out to not be what their creators expected within seconds of being turned on. But where Ultron immediately decided Hank Pym, and all humans everywhere, needed to die the minute it turned on, Vision was driven by curiosity and intrigue.



* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman

to:

* WhatMeasureIsANonHumanWhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Often treated as less than human by unpleasant characters. His "death" in ''Disassembled'' has a nasty version of it. After being smashed and torn to pieces, rather than being sent to anyone who might have any knowledge of how to fix him, Vision's body is unceremoniously packed up in crates and sent off to a warehouse to rot for years.



* WorkingWithTheEx: After his marriage with the Scarlet Witch goes south, the two Avengers worked together off and on.

to:

* WorkingWithTheEx: After his marriage with the Scarlet Witch goes south, the two Avengers worked together off and on. Then ''Disassembled'' happened. Vision was slightly less willing to work with Wanda after he got better, though they did eventually manage to mend most of their fences.


* BrainUploading: The Vision originally possessed the brain patterns of Simon Williams, the then-deceased hero known as WonderMan. Later, after the U.S. government dismantles him, the rebuilt Vision would use the brain patterns of the dead scientist Alex Lipton until Simon's patterns reemerge.

The Vision is a Creator/MarvelComics superhero created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema. A synthetic humanoid built from the remains of [[ComicBook/MarvelMysteryComics the android Human Torch]], the Vision made his debut in ''The Avengers #57'' (October, 1968) as a creation of the super-villain ComicBook/{{Ultron}}. The Vision is convinced to rebel against his creator after encountering Comicbook/TheAvengers, who invite him to join the team. Named by the TheWasp, who described him as an "unearthly, inhuman vision", the Vision becomes one of Avengers' longest-serving members until his death during ''Avengers Disassembled''. This went to the point in the 1970s when ''The Avengers'' standard cover masthead picture in the left hand corner was ''just him''. He came BackFromTheDead a few years later and once again features in Avengers books.
