BOOM! Sends Bill & Ted to Hell

I somehow completely missed the limited series Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return last year, but recently read it and was really pleasantly surprised (it’s now collected in a trade that ships today, so you can catch up too!).

The Vision #1 – Do synthezoids dream of families?

The last time we saw The Vision proper was in the Avengers special a month or two back where we learned he had wiped his emotions to keep his systems functioning properly. As a result, it's very jarring to see The Vision now residing in Arlington as the Avengers liason to the government. But that feeling may be intentional.
