10 Comics You Must Read Before Avengers: Infinity War

1. Vision: Little Worse Than A Man

The Vision Tom King
Marvel

Marvel are no strangers to implementing some good old fashioned misdirection in their marketing campaigns (Civil War only recently included that shot of Rhodey 'dying' in its first trailer), but it would be a remarkable feat for the company to dodge that shot of the Vision from Infinity War's teaser.

It certainly looks as though everyone's favourite Android could be in for a torrid time of things next April, and while it's true the Vision of the comics never had to rely on a cosmic marble to keep them going, it's hard to imagine the MCU's surviving for long if his stone's plucked from his forehead. With a potential death in mind, there's no better Vision comic to read than Tom King's 'Worse Than A Man', a harrowing tale of suburbia and one man's quest to be normal.

The genius of King's comic is that it serves as a detailed character study of the Vision, asking big questions and detailing the collapse of the character's very own American Dream.

Fans will be hard-pressed to find a series as heartfelt or as intelligent as King's Vision, and while there's plenty in the character's library to get through before Infinity War, this should, ideally, be at the top of everyone's list.
