Oh man ok. Billy and Teddy are gay for sure. David is bi, America is gay, Eli and Nate are straight. Those are all from canon so I won’t go at length about it.
I feel like Noh is pansexual but prefers those who present as female, or the opposite of his gender identity. Kree don’t have the same notion of sexual orientation as humans so it isn’t a big deal to him, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have preferences.
Kate is bi. I feel like she would mostly stick to guys because she hasn’t really found any girls she’s super attracted to. It’s one of those, “I’d totally date a girl if I liked her but I haven’t found any I like yet” things.
Tommy is demisexual. After his history I feel like he’d had trouble really trusting a lot of people, especially when it came to relationships. While he’d be ok with casual flings because there aren’t any strings, when it came to anything serious it would take him time to accept it.
Cassie is still pretty young, but I feel like she’d be bisexual too. Similar to Kate; she wouldn’t say no to a girl. However I feel like she’d also be a bit demi, just not to the extent Tommy is.
Loki is pansexual but more because he doesn’t really prescribe to gender norms. (Fun fact: I also support the canon that Loki is genderfluid/queer, seeing as he appears as a female in, like, a billion comics) It’s probably more a question of who can stand him rather than who he would date :P
So when thinking about the Vision, I think about his relationship with the Scarlet Witch. I think about this bizarre family he has where Hank Pym is his grandfather and Ultron is his father and these twins he had, who had this horrible and complicated end. He’s had such an abnormal family life that to put him in this situation where he’s trying to have a normal family life seems almost a no-brainer.
I fail to see how creating a ‘perfect’ family by…presumably cloning himself…is in any shape or way better than anything Ultron has done, and/or ‘normal’. We’re talking about a Stepford-Wives situation here, that ain’t healthy!
And are we just not going to mention the elephant in the room that Billy and Tommy exist now? Yes, they did have a horrible end. Vision also had a horrible end. That entire clusterfuck was a horrible, horrible thing to happen to everyone involved!
So I still fail to see how re-enacting that exact same situation is going to work any better!
And again, Billy and Tommy exist now. They stick with their soul-mom more, but it’s not like they don’t understand Vision’s role in their pre-lives. Heck, 2 years ago, Vision did meet and acknowledge Billy!
And in other media, Marvel refers to them with that relationship, like in Marvel Heroes 2015, if you have Wiccan and Vision in the same area, Vision will mention that Billy is like his son!
So it’s not like Marvel was ever steadfast that Vision wasn’t their father in some capacity. It’ll be way easier to understand the reasoning behind the solo synopsis if from the get-go, the twins never saw Vision as their father or that Marvel never supported that stance.
But they did!
I’m assuming the twin boys have to be mentioned eventually in the story. They have the most incredibly complicated origins, but you can’t ignore them when there are a pair of distaff counterpart daughters that Vision created of them FFS!
I heard good things about Tom King. A shit ton of good things. So whatever this story is, it’ll be well-written. And I’m hoping there’s going to be some subversion down the line, or that there’s a lot more than what it seems.
Also maybe bring Tommy in because he doesn’t appear in any of his family’s series or his own, yes even tho this situation would probably be traumatizing, at least he’ll be in something! (Wiccan gets to be in New Avengers, Wanda and Vision get their solos. Seriously, where the hell is Tommy!?)
