A nice issue that switches the focus to the Vision, who came back in the Osborn arc but never really got that much to do, or at least, we never got any insight into how he’s feeling. Until now. This issue helpfully kicked off with a couple of pages from Avengers Disassembled, reminding us how it was that Vision was destroyed in the first place. From then, we’re back in the present as Vizh finds out that the reason he ‘died’ was his wife, Wanda. From then on, we get two fantastic scenes, where Vision confronts She-Hulk, the person who actually did the ripping-in-half, and then Magneto, his father-in-law. The scene with Magneto was particularly gripping, with some of Bendis’ best dialogue ever I think. And then at the end Vision breaks down crying in the arms of Captain America. It’s always been a running theme that the robot Avenger was perhaps the most human of them all, and that was very true here. I’m glad to have Vision back, and with how this issue set up events in AvX #0 it looks like he has a big role to play now in the Marvel Universe, which is awesome. I am surprised they never mentioned the teenage Vision who just died, but then that might have been a bit too convoluted. Brandon Peterson’s art was great, I’m really pleased he’s moved away from the overly-computerised style, I always preferred his more traditional pencils.

Great issue. I loved the talk with She-Hulk. It was heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time.

personally i thought Peterson's art was pretty terrible, and the whole Hawkeye/Spider-Woman scene reminded me how stupid i think that whole romance is (mainly because nobody, even Bendis, seems to have any idea how to consistently write the Hawk/Mock/Jess triangle relationship from book to book, issue to issue), but other than that, one of Bendis's better Avengers issues. the Vizh/Mags scene in particular was awesome.
