Yes, I got rid of the cape. Let's just get that out there at the start.
This is a redesign I did for The Vision over at the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe (REDUXE Edition)" website ohotmuredux.blogspot.com. I don't want to say much about it and just let the art and design speak for itself.
But that cape... Look. Don't think I didn't struggle with it a bit. A cape makes a great visual when phasing through a wall or hovering around. It wasn't an obvious decision like getting rid of the whole underwear-on-the-outside thing. And I made a nod to the whole ornamental collar thing. But in the end, the cape itself had to go. IT WAS TIME.
Clearly I'm expecting some flack for losing the cape from the Avengers faithful.
