Vision and the Scarlet Witch #4 (1986)

A nice splash page reminds us that this is, at its heart, a romance comic and not an action one—and lets us know that Scarlet Witch is pregnant, the ultimate exercise in magical wish-fulfillment.  This is a virgin inception, really, since Vision is nothing but a machine—and yet Dr. Strange insists that this is joyous and nothing bad will come of a magical pregnancy.

Other than that, this issue shows the couple being harassed by anti-mutant bigots in their home neighborhood and has Ghost Agatha Harkness appearing again (remember, she’s the one who inspired Wanda to use her magical powers to create a baby) to warn her of some vague threat.

Oh, and there’s a fantasy scene of Wanda imagining their teen boy coming going to school…

…And the schoolbus advertises author Steve Englehart’s creator-owned Epic comic, Coyote.
