Little Friends - Martian Manhunter and Vision by darrenrawlings Little Friends - Martian Manhunter and Vision by darrenrawlings
Day 3 of the 'Little Friends' series! (hopefully I can keep it up!)
The more I do these, the more amazing similarities between Marvel and DC characters I find. Some more than others obviously, but in one way or another, its either their design, their powers, or their back story that have a striking resemblance.

A lot of people compare The Vision to Red Tornado because they are both artificial lifeforms, but I agree with you that, overall, he has far more in common with The Martian Manhunter. (I always imagine the two of them as having the same voice whenever I read a comic book with either one of them.)

These are cool.
I always though of Red Tornado as a counterpart of Vision. 0:

Thanks! I never would have thought of Red Tornado. They don't really have too much in common,
other than being robots that is.

Heh heh heh. Awesome. I always thought these guys were more or less reflections of one another; glad to see I wasn't the only one.

I think Marvel actually ripped off quite a few characters in its past: Green Goblin uses the Joker's laugh; a description of Black Cat sounds pretty much exactly like Catwoman; Vision has pretty much Martian Manhunter's entire powerset; Thanos was actually designed as an homage/rip-off of the New Gods; Spider-Man has a Scarecrow too; the list goes on.

Fortunately, pretty much every copy/ripoff/coincidence has developed a personality, legacy and feel all their own over time, so there's plenty distinguishing the characters. Nowadays, they feel like they'd make interesting team-ups/fights than carbon copies of one another.

I'd really like to know what kind of conversation MM and Vision would have...
