PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


It was another glorious victory for the Mighty Avengers. Good triumphed over evil and Ultron was shot into space, never to be seen again. Or so they thought. Now, years later, the homicidal artificial intelligence — so long devoted to ending life on Earth — has found a new world to conquer…one with its own horrific legacy. When Titan, birthplace of Thanos, falls, Planet Ultron rises in its place! Thanos’ brother Starfox must seek the aid of his former allies — but the Avengers he finds are radically different from the ones he once knew. Among them is Ultron’s creator Giant-Man — and when Hank Pym confronts his now planet-sized “son,” the responsibilities of fatherhood have never loomed so large.

To begin, “Avengers: Rage Of Ultron” is an important Avengers story. Amazingly, it expands on the relationship between the Avengers and their nemesis: Ultron.

Importantly, Rick Remender’s writing shines. Particularly, the writer crafts one of the best Avengers sci-fi stories. Moreover, the graphic novel builds upon the story arc involving Hank Pym and Ultron, with great dramatic tension.

To sum, this is a one-shot you do not want to miss. Indeed, share this graphic novel to fans of the Avengers and to comic clubs. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Ultron! And Vision!

Finally, the Kindle and Comixology formats are available.

One positive customer review said: “As I mentioned earlier, this is the best Avengers story I’ve read since Busiek’s run came to an end. The prose and the philosophically-charged issues make this very high brow reading that’s exciting, thought-provoking, and worth rereading.

Definitely a story you’ll be picking up five years down the road for another look. And there’s even a very explanatory introduction from the previously–mentioned Kurt Busiek himself. This purchase is worth every friggin’ penny. You won’t be sorry.”

The reviews were overall very positive with 7 negative ratings. A problem cited by a negative review was the price per page count: “25 dollars for a 112 page book is absolute crap. Marvel needs to update their quantity because this is the only case where quantity is equal to quality. Thank god for websites like amazon so you dont have to buy it uber priced. Almost as bad as the art of deadpool trade..”

Overall, this graphic novel was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Kindle and Comixology formats available.
  • Free with Comixology Unlimited membership.

NEGATIVE:

  • Price Per Page Count.

On the final page, in a series of eye blasts, Ultron fells Vision.

VISION ENERGY MANIPULATION ATTACK: 6 DAMAGE PTS.
ULTRON ENERGY MANIPULATION (x3) + BLUNT FORCE ATTACKS: 6 DAMAGE PTS (x3) + 1 DAMAGE PT = 19 DAMAGE PTS.

In ‘Avengers’ (2004) #500, titled “Avengers Disassembled, Chaos (Part I of IV)”, She-Hulk performs a super strength feat. Scarlet Witch wants revenge on the Avengers and triggers Vision‘s sleeper program which unleashes five Ultron drones. During the battle, a Scarlet Witch mind-controlled She-Hulk tears Vision in half.

How much super strength does it take for She-Hulk to rip Vision in half?

We will use Vision’s durability to estimate She-Hulk’s super strength.

VISION’S DURABILITY


In ‘Avengers’ (1969) #62, Black Panther flies Hawkeye, Vision and Black Knight to Wakanda. There, they are met by Wakanda soldiers who open fire on them on M’baku’s orders. During the fight, Vision withstands Wakandan Vibranium bullets.

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1984) #8, Captain America uses his Vibranium alloy shield to survive the Human Torch’s nova flame as the Fantastic Four superhero defeats Ultron.

We will use these feats to calculate Vision’s durability.

NUMBER CRUNCHING



First, let’s estimate the durability of Captain America’s Vibranium shield. Captain America’s Vibranium shield can withstand the intensity of a nova flame. In Feat: Superman, ‘DCeased’ #6, I calculated the energy released by a supernova to be 1.8*10^47 J. Cap’s shield is actually 32.5% dense in Vibranium. Let’s calculate the durability of Vibranium in terms of energy.

Durability of Vibranium = (0.325)(1.8*10^47 J) = 5.85*1046 J.

Vision’s synthezoid body is made up of Horton cells. Let’s calculate the density of Vision’s body.

Density Of Vision’s Body = (136.08 kg)/(1.91 m*1 m*0.5 m) = 142.492146597 kg/m3.

Let’s multiply the density times the number of Horton cells.

Vision’s Durability = (5.85*1046 J)(3*1015 Horton cells*10-12 kg/m3)/(1 Horton cell*142.492146597 kg/m3) = 3.2816063*1048 J.

Since the Vibranium bullets did not budge Vision, the super strength needed to affect his durability is at least 3.2816063*1047 N or 49838390581938219895287958115183246073298429 PSI.



DURABILITY



She-Hulk generated more than half of 3.2816063*1047 N of force in order to affect Vision’s durability. Vision had to generate a Galaxy Level of Super Strength since she likely ripped Vision with a force 9.3227452*1024 times greater than the gravitational force of the sun on Earth.

Toggle the Toggle Arrow below to view the calculations.

Calculations for She-Hulk, ‘Avengers’ #500

Gravitational Force Of Sun On Earth = 3.54*10^22 N

Durability of Vibranium = (0.325)(1.8*10^47 J) = 5.85*10^46 J.
Density Of Vision’s Body = (136.08 kg)/(1.91 m*1 m*0.5 m) = 142.492146597 kg/m^3.
Vision’s Durability = (5.85*1046 J)(3*1015 Horton cells*10-12 kg/m^3)/(1 Horton cell*142.492146597 kg/m^3) = 3.2816063*10^48 J.
Comparison = (3.2816063*10^47 N)/(3.54*10^22 N) = 144477.635593.

Marvel Day: In The Dark Dimension, Vision Confesses His Love, Saves Then Marries The Scarlet Witch

 

MARVEL DAY

IN MARVEL COMICS

VISION RECLAIMS THE IDENTITY OF THE ROBOTIC WORLD WAR II SYNTHEZOID THE HUMAN TORCH

In ‘Giant Size Avengers’ #4, Vision ponders his origin as he attempts to save Scarlet Witch from Dormammu and his sister Umar. The Vision discovered that he was not originally Ultron’s creation, designed by the android to infiltrate and dismantle the Avengers. After he turned on his master, The Vision struggled to accept that he was created by a super-villain. Instead, he was created in 1968 by Ultron-5 and Professor Horton who rebuilt the original synthezoid the 1940s Human Torch into the Vision.

Ultron’s goal was to create a “son” that would serve his evil “scheme[s].”1 Though Ultron-5 had created a new body, he had not altered the Human Torch’s mind. The new creation immediately attacked Ultron-5. Ultron-5 then turned on Professor Horton and killed him with a blast. The android showed feelings of care for the one he called “father” as he laid dying.1 When the android confronted Ultron-5 in rage, he was felled which resulted in altering his mind “re-programmed using the taped brain patterns of a dead Wonder Man…”1 The Vision was born!

IN A BATTLE TO THE DEATH, THE VISION CONFESSES HIS LOVE TO SAVE THE SCARLET WITCH FROM DORMAMMU’S HELLISH POSSESSION IN THE DARK DIMENSION

The Vision awakens from his gaze. He hears a scream and heads in the direction of the sound. He sees the spectacle of a hellish pit with Dormammu and his sister Urma holding his beloved, Scarlet Witch bound in chains on a sacrificing surface. The Vision has to save the Scarlet Witch to prevent Dormammu to reach his full power in order to conquer the Dark Dimension!

Dormammu asks the Vision to forget Scarlet Witch and leave. But Vision says it’s a bluff. Soon, demons appear in the shadows and fight. They hurl liquid fire at the Vision. The Avenger, however, grows intangible, then by “partial solidification”, he absorbs the “supernatural flame” and fires it as a solar blast using his solar gem.1

In 'Giant Size Avengers' #4, the Vision uses his solar gem to fire solar blasts at Dormammu's demons.

With the defeat of his demons, Dormammu sends the Vision’s very beloved against the Avenger. Urma testifying to this, states that even she “could devise nothing truly more evil than this!”1 “In blind obedience,” the Scarlet Witch attacks the Vision with a spell.1 She attacks the Vision with molten lava in order to bury him. However, the Vision solidifies and hardens like a diamond.

Seeing that the attack has not worked, Scarlet Witch, uses her organic powers on the earth element in order to create a boulder. The boulder hovers atop the Vision and lands upon him. Becoming intangible, the Vision rises above the stone and claims he can counter her “organic powers.” The Vision asks Scarlet Witch to remember him. Remembering his solar gem, Scarlet Witch begins to drain the Vision of his solar energy.

In 'Giant Size Avengers' #4, Scarlet Witch casts a spell on the Vision that drains his solar gem of his solar energy to near death.

The Vision drained slowly of his solar energy admits Wanda’s magic has defeated him. He says she is killing him and begs of her to remember him. As the Vision falls to the floor to near death, he confesses his love for Wanda.

Seeing her beloved lying motionless on the floor, Scarlet Witch exclaims: “What have I done?” Speciesism is conquered and it is the love of a synthezoid for a mutant witch that conquers evil! The Vision’s love saves Wanda. The Scarlet Witch, free from Dormammu’s possession, promises to make him pay.

In 'Giant Size Avengers' #4, the Vision's love breaks Dormammu's possession of the Scarlet Witch.

THE VISION, SCARLET WITCH AND MISS HARKNESS DEFEAT DORMAMMU AND UMAR

Dormammu and the Scarlet Witch do battle. As Dormammu attempts to cast a spell on Wanda, the Vision and Miss Harkness claiming he has grown stronger, “[he] feel[s] no effect!1 Miss Harkness appears and states the Scarlet Witch freed her when she became freed of Dormammu’s possession. Miss Harkness has cast a protection spell on the Scarlet Witch.

Using her organic powers “one final time”, the Scarlet Witch strikes at the lava’s heat to which Dormammu is bound in order to prevent his regeneration.1 Dormammu asks Urma’s aid but the Vision having been revived by the Scarlet Witch notes and strikes her humanoid form, unlike Dormammu who is a being of “pure force.”1 Urma writhes in pain.

In 'Giant Size Avengers' #4, Vision, the Scarlet Witch and Miss Harkness battle Dormammu and Urma.

Suffering loss, Dormammu admits defeat and asks of the Scarlet Witch what she wants. Scarlet Witch asks for Dormammu’s word that the Vision, Miss Harkness and her can return safely to Earth, safe from him and his sister; that he will free the Earth spirit; and that he will no longer seek to conquer the Earth’s dimension.

Dormammu gives her his word though he hides his true intentions from her. In thought bubbles, it is revealed that he made a similar pledge to Doctor Strange and he states he owes Scarlet Witch “only hatred.”1 Dormammu promises in his secret intentions to make her regret her trust.

In 'Giant Size Avengers' #4, Vision, the Scarlet Witch and Miss Harkness defeat Dormammu and Urma. They are returned to Earth's dimension.

WANDA AGREES TO MARRY THE VISION; THE AVENGERS ASSEMBLE FOR THE MARRIAGE AT IMMORTUS’ TEMPLE GARDEN

Scarlet Witch, the Vision and Miss Harkness are teleported back to Avengers Mansion. After Miss Harkness departs, Scarlet Witch and the Vision speak. Vision confesses his love for Wanda and explains that after they quarreled, he “lived a life without warmth.” When Mantis offered to be Vision’s partner, he felt nothing for her. He asks Wanda to marry him. Asked by Wanda if the Vision loves her because she was the first girl he met, the Vision explains that he loves her because he is an Avenger and she is the only one who can understand his life as an Avenger.

Now that the Vision knows his origin, he knows he was meant to live as a human and is willing to make Wanda happy. In some ways, it is his love for the Scarlet Witch that saves the Vision and helps him see clearly. Wanda agrees to marry the Vision. Soon, Immortus gathers Scarlet Witch and Vision at the Temple Garden. They announce to the Avengers their decision to marry. Iron Man and Thor are elated while Hawkeye is unsure. Still, the ceremony as well as the marriage between Mantis and Swordsman (Cotati) are celebrated. This is the proof that love can conquer even speciesism and unite different species.
