Thanks to Avengers: Age of Ultron, the movie-going world has now been introduced to one of the stranger Marvel heroes, the synthetic android Vision, played onscreen by Paul Bettany. A sightly spooky kinda-robot with feel feelings (sometimes) and a crush on a witch, and a mechanical dad and magic babies (but not really), he's a confusing character to get to grips with, which makes him the idea subject for the recurring feature we call Comics, Everybody! Cartoonist Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again and colorist Jordan Gibson are here to educate you about Vision's complicated history of upgrades, downgrades, and reboots.

Whether you're new to comics, new to Marvel's heroes, or a long-time fan looking to re-familiarize yourself with the eccentricities of superhero continuity (or maybe engage in some hardcore nitpicking), we hope you'll enjoy this tribute to the android that you will believe can cry.
