In this episode, Curt and Kevin visit a seemingly idyllic Washington, D.C. suburb to pull back the curtain and expose the insecurities and instability corrupting the source code of one modern American family as they run some diagnostic tests on The Vision: Little Worse Than a Man, collecting issues 1-6 of Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta’s acclaimed Marvel comic, The Vision.
In his ongoing quest to be human, the android Avenger has created his own version of a perfect suburban family unit. But when a supervillain with ties to the Vision’s past drops by unannounced, he sets off a sequence of events that threatens not just this humanoid household, but the entire world!
Will the Vision hit the “delete” button to protect his computerized clan from a world that mistrusts and fears them? Or can everyone’s favorite synthezoid sentinel save the day and gain acceptance into that exclusive gated community known as … The Comics Canon?
