The Vision wants to be human, and what's more human than family? So he heads back to the beginning, to the laboratory where Ultron created him and molded him into a weapon. The place where he first rebelled against his given destiny and imagined that he could be more -that he could be a man. There, he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition -or is that obsession? -the unrelenting need to be ordinary. Behold the Visions! COLLECTING: VISION 1-6

To assert as truth that which has no meaning is the core mission of humanity.

The pursuit of a set purpose by logical means is the way of tyranny; this is the vision of my creator. Of Ultron.

The pursuit of an unobtainable purpose by absurd means is the way of freedom; this is my vision of the future. Of our future.

You cannot hate what you do not know. They do not know you, therefore they are incapable of hating you. Perhaps I might concede they hate the idea of you. But if this is true, then your task is a simple one. You merely have to show them that you are not that idea.

Facts without context are like individuals without society. Just as an individual must find his or her place in society or else they are useless, a fact must find its place in an argument or else it serves no true purpose.

On its face, this appears to be a superhero comic. It's certainly a story about a superhero. But it's about a superhero trying not to be super, trying to live a normal life.

More significantly, it's a story about an artificial intelligence trying to live a human life.

Trying to be human.

Trying to become human by living like one.

And failing utterly.

And though this is a small story about a family trying to live small lives, the telling is super. Far better than most superhero comics I've read.

Despite the Vision's failure to become human, this is a tale of humanity.

The only reason I am not giving this all the stars is because I have yet to finish it. In fact, I returned the book early so that the next person could get it. I enjoyed this so much that I am just going to purchase it.

Other than superhero stories, if you like Sci-Fi stories about Artificial Intelligence, then this would be perfect for you.
