A Year of Cool Comics – Day 332

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!

Today we look at the classic two-part introduction of the Vision in Avengers #57 and 58, courtesy of writer Roy Thomas and artists John Buscema and George Klein!

Enjoy!

The villainous Ultron (the evil robot) had only recently been introduced when he send a new creation to attack the Avengers. Check out this beautiful opening page by Buscema and Klein…


Then see how eerie of a first attack Thomas, Buscema and Klein give the Vision…




Once defeated, the Vision tries to fight his programming but first has a relapse…


Eventually, he recovers and takes the Avengers to Ultron to stop the villainous robot, but they are trapped. It is up to Vision to stop Ultron!!! Check out the little extra pathos Thomas throws in as Vision faces his “father”…


Now defeated, check out the classic ending Thomas gave to what was just a series of panels by Buscema NOT originally intended to be accompanied by poetry…


Beautiful stuff.

So the next issue, the Avengers determine what to do with the Vision…


And eventually, we discover the genesis of Ultron – it was Avenger stalwart Hank Pym who created him!!!



After a series of tests, the Avengers are convinced that the Vision is worthy of being an Avenger (these same series would stop being used when it came to putting Deathcry on the team) and his reaction is legendary…



Well done, Roy, John and George!!!
