As you wait for more exciting revelations, why not check out some of the comics storylines that helped inspire the show?

Published in 1982, Avengers: Vision and the Scarlet Witch begins the nearly four-decade-long road to WandaVision. Want to know how the famous duo finally tied the knot? This book is the place to start. If you are itching for something a little closer to the marital bliss parodied in the show, you can’t go wrong with Vision And The Scarlet Witch: A Year In The Life. A solo series that ran from 1985 to 1986, it highlighted the new couple’s growing pains as they settle into their married life and learn to deal with each other’s outlandish superfamilies.

The new millennium saw the couple separated and dealing with hardship alone.  House of M (2005) presents Wanda in her most dangerous form. Heartbroken at the loss of her closest family, she uses her tremendous powers to try and bend reality to her will. Meanwhile, 2015’s The Vision delves into the titular character’s potential for humanity. Much in the spirit of WandaVision’s suburban atmosphere, this storyline follows Vision’s quest to become more human through manufacturing his own nuclear family.

Or you could just re-watch every MCU movie that stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. Who am I to judge?

The Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family? So he heads back to the beginning, to the laboratory where Ultron created him and molded him into a weapon. The place where he first rebelled against his given destiny, and imagined he could be more – that he could be a man. There, he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition (or is that obsession?): the unrelenting need to be ordinary. Behold the Visions! They’re the family next door, and they have the power to kill us all. What could possibly go wrong? Artificial hearts will be broken, bodies will not stay buried, the truth will not remain hidden, and the Vision will never be the same.
