Seen primarily as a secondary character, Vision could actually turn out to be one of the most successful characters in the MCU.
While we assisted in Avengers: Infinity War Upon Vision’s death, fans across the universe (thankfully) had plenty of time to reunite with one of the MCU’s most exciting characters in the series WandaVision. The opportunity to offer the hero a new apprehension, the Disney + show having unveiled a new facet of the super-android through only three episodes. Considered in Phase 3 as secondary, the role played by Paul Bettany was seen first and foremost as a form of exceptional intelligence built from Jarvis, serving more to house the Spirit Stone and further the cause of the Avengers. However, as soon as it appeared and despite the power of its powers, Vision was relegated to the background.
An observation that makes the Disney + series, WandaVision even more interesting, this one having changed the face of the MCU in just three episodes. Here, the new Marvel creation offers us a broader characterization of Vision insofar as the android reveals a more human facet, more tender but also more fun which denotes the stoicism to which the character has accustomed us. This new apprehension then makes it possible to note the evolution of the latter through the adaptations of the MCU, the latter having moreover first adopted the traits of Artificial Intelligence to finally become a father in WandaVision. A scriptwriting spring that could recall the course of Iron Man in the MCU, the leader of the Avengers, like Captain America, having benefited from a full narrative arc.
However, their conclusion now makes it possible to highlight other characters like Vision, the latter being now a leading hero, whose disappearance in Phase 3 may have serious consequences. Because so many fans remember the death of Iron Man or that of Black Widow, that of Vision should have a wider impact on Phase 4 of the MCU. Whether it is vis-à-vis the mourning of Wanda or in relation to the creation of the Multiverse, the narrative arc of the hero is therefore particularly important in the scheme of Marvel studios. Finally, his evolution as a superhero, the apprehension of unpublished human characters or even the preponderance of his adventures in Phase 3 and 4 associated with the unprecedented setting in the abyss of the Disney + series make Vision one of the characters. the most successful if not the most original of the Marvel universe.
