What does it mean to be human? A common question asked equally among philosophers and people who read comics. Made from the memories of Hank Pym and the remnants of Ultron, The Vision has spent his time since his first appearance in 1968 asking himself that question and trying to cultivate the answer.

What separates human from the superhuman? Is it our actual flesh and blood or simply brain scans and downloadable data into a synthetic body? From his inception to now, The Vision has been on a journey to define himself, and to find love.  Whether with Scarlet Witch or with a family all his own, listen along to learn about the ways in which everyone’s favorite synthezoid has been saved by love- or trapped by it.
