WandaVision is rumored to adapt several classic Marvel storylines, including House of M, Tom King’s Vision, and The Vision and The Scarlet Witch, but the series won’t stop there. According to Murphy’s Multiverse, the show will draw inspiration from John Byrne’s Vision Quest arc.
When Byrne took over writing duties on West Coast Avengers in 1989, he kicked off his run with a vision centric story that ran from issue #42 to #45 collected as Vision Quest. The arc is noted for taking the character away from his earlier depictions that emphasized his more human nature, focusing instead of the fact he is just an android. The story had Vision’s memory wiped, severed his relationship with Wanda, and revealed that their children were imaginary constructs. Given what fans know about WandaVision, you can see how the show will draw inspiration from this comic.
WandaVision will supposedly see Wanda try to fix the currently broken android and bring him back to life in her false reality. In the comics, when Wanda did this, the Vision was a blank slate without his memories, so it will be interesting to see how this is handled in the series. And since their children, Wiccan and Speed will reportedly appear, it seems it will also be revealed they are just constructs created by Wanda. Ultimately, it looks like Marvel is digging deep for inspiration for their Disney+ series.
Marvel’s second series is supposedly set to be released by the end of 2020; however, COVID-19 has left much of production up in the air. Reports have claimed some filming was left to be completed, so as of now, it remains to be seen if the show will hit its release date.
