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.
