Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige continues developing the live-action TV series "Vision and the Scarlet Witch", starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, reprising their 'Marvel Cinamatic Universe' roles, for the "Disney +" streaming service, available in 2019:


The android 'Vision', created by writer Roy Thomas and illustrator John Buscema, debuted in Marvel Comics' "The Avengers" #57 (Oct. 1968).


"...the robot 'Ultron' is the real creator of the 'Vision'...


"...a type of android he calls a 'synthezoid'...


"...for use against Ultron's own creator, 'Tony Stark'.


"Temporarily controlled by Ultron...



"...the Vision rebuilds Ultron of indestructible 'adamantium'...


"...and battles the Avengers before regaining his self-control. The 'Solar Jewel' on the Vision's forehead...


"...absorbs ambient solar energy providing power to function also capable of discharging as optic beams, infrared and microwave radiation. 


"The Vision also possesses the ability to manipulate his density, which at its lowest allows flight and a ghostly, phasing intangibility, and at its heaviest provides superhuman strength, immovability, and a diamond-hard near invulnerability..."


"In the comics, the Vision hooks up with 'Wanda Maximoff', aka mutant 'Scarlet Witch'...


"...with whom he becomes romantically involved.


Created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Jack Kirby, the 'Scarlet Witch' debuted in Marvel Comics' "X-Men" #4 (March 1964).


She is the daughter of 'Magneto', twin sister of Quicksilver and paternal half-sister of 'Polaris'. 


The character has featured in four decades of Marvel continuity.


Scarlet Witch starred in two self-titled limited series with husband the 'Vision' and as a regular team member in "Avengers".  


Scarlet Witch has also appeared in other Marvel-endorsed products including animated films, arcade/video games...


....television series and merchandise, including action figures and trading cards.


As a mutant, she has the ability to manipulate probability via her 'hexes', manifested physically as 'hex spheres' or 'hex bolts'.



She can use her hexes to light flammable objects, contain or remove air from a particular volume, deflect objects, stop the momentum of projectiles, open doors, explode objects, create force fields and deflect magical attacks.
