Scarlet Witch and Vision: An Odd Couple

Okay, I have been debating this with myself since Age of Ultron but I haven’t been able to figure it out until now, thanks to Infinity War, and that’s the realization that Vision is in fact a SUPER-intelligent robot. For a while now Vision has entirely eluded me as to what I could legitimately call him. Was he a human with an incredibly intuitive brain? Was he simply a robot with the extreme likeness, personality, and feelings of a human? Or did I have to think of him as simply a Mind Stone entity, not exactly human, not exactly a robot, just a being with infinite power? Well, Infinity War has pretty much cleared up this conundrum for me and now that this question of mine has been resolved I have to admit, I’m a tad bit grossed out about it.

Bruce Banner said that Vision is basically a mega-mix of Tony Stark, Jarvis, Banner, Ultron, and the Mind Stone all wrapped into a handsome Paul Bettany gift box. That’s a little…weird. So basically Scarlet Witch is in love with the ultimate robot? Ooookay. That’s definitely a little strange.

Vision, from what I’ve learned of his involvement in the comic books, was an alien superhero and so the relationship between him and Scarlet Witch was so totally palpable. This version of the well-known Marvel romance is a bit tweaked considering that Vision is now a robot rather than a living being. I mean, does Vision even breathe? He’s a robot so does he have to?

Now I’m not saying I don’t like the romance between Vision and Scarlet Witch. It’s one of the most developed love stories in the MCU and really left a lasting impact on Infinity War as a whole. And I don’t dislike Vision because he’s a robot, of sorts. I mean, he’s so human at all times that I can see why Scarlet Witch fell in love with him.

For a while she felt that she didn’t entirely fit in with the other Avengers because everyone either kept their distance from her or considered her warily but Vision was always there to have her back. He understood her more than anyone because not only were they linked through their Infinity Stone connections but he knew what it felt like to be looked as peculiar. (He’s a super powerful, super intelligent robot dude, remember?) So of course they would find solace in each other’s loving arms. I just think Scarlet Witch being in love with what is, in essence, a robot is definitely a little…odd, but I love it. 🙂

I’m hoping something incredible will happen and both Scarlet Witch and Vision are revived in the next film so they be can together again because that would make me very happy. And then maybe we can get that Scarlet Witch/Vision movie that everyone’s hoping to see one day. (Maybe.)

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a remarkable day.

  1. When I saw that Scarlet Witch was in love with Vision, I was thinking, “What? She’s in love with a person-thing that Banner, Stark, Jarvis, and the Mind Stone made?? Seriously?” So you’re not the only one who thinks it’s a little weird… 🙂
    Also, did you know that Jarvis is an acronym for “Just Another Rather Very Intelligent System”?? LOL

    1. Yeah, I forgot that Jarvis meant that. Hilarious! And yeah, the romance between Scarlet Witch and Vision was definitely a little weird. I mean, really Wanda? Are you that desperate for love that you’re willing to fall in love with a robot? I know I wouldn’t, I don’t care how handsome the robot could be.

      1. Ha! Hilarious self-made emoji. LOL! And yeah she totally Vision. I mean I like Vision too. He’s cool…but he’s not that cool if you get what I mean? I guess he’s human enough if he knows how to kiss though. Lol.

  2. Hello Annlyel, now to prove I’m not just a Star Wars fan, if you check out the film Star Trek – The Motion Picture something similar sort of happened. At the start of the movie there was a female navigation officer named Ilia and another commander called Will Decker. Decker was attracted to Ilia but during a mission to investigate an all powerful spacecraft/probe called V’ger it assimilated her and turned her into a humanoid/robotic data gatherer. The space craft was in reality, Voyager, the satellite sent out from Earth hundreds of years earlier and had been modified by sentient robots to help it complete it’s mission. Well this mission was to collect all knowledge in the universe and return it to it’s creator. One problem….NASA was no more and there was no way to retrieve the command codes for Voyager to transmit it’s data to it’s creator. Voyager therefore had to merge with it’s creator. This is where Decker sacrifices himself and allows himself to be assimilated also, to complete Voyager’s mission….and to be with Ilia, his love.
    It’s not quite the same situation but Decker loved Ilia so much so that he was prepared to become a new “Cyborg life form” to be with her.

    1. Well, that makes sense because she was a human first and then was turned into a robot. Of course Decker, if he loved her, would be willing to turn into a robot as well to be with her for the rest of her life. (That sounds awfully sweet too.) Vision has never and probably never will be a human so Scarlet Witch’s love for him is, to me, definitely a little odd. Thanks for the ‘Star Trek’ info.
