When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
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?

After another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team.
