It was revealed in the first episode of Ms. Marvel that the MCU Phase 4 continues to snub Vision from Avengers: Infinity War. An avid 16-year-old Captain Marvel fan is given the superhuman ability to channel cosmic energy in Ms. Marvel, which serves as a prequel to the 2023 film The Marvels. Despite the fact that the six-episode Disney+ show introduces a new superhero, it continues the Phase 4 trend of ignoring Vision’s sacrifice in Infinity War.
To achieve Thanos’ goal of mass murder, Vision was a major stumbling block. As a result, he demanded that Wanda Maximoff destroy the Mind Stone and, with it, him. In spite of Wanda’s initial refusal, she had no option but to disintegrate and kill Vision after the Avengers’ race to save him had failed. Thanos, on the other hand, ignored this sacrifice, resurrecting Vision with the Time Stone and stealing the Mind Stone, killing him once more and accomplishing the Infinity Gauntlet. This tragic event was unfortunately overshadowed by the events of Avengers: Endgame, as implied repeatedly in Phase 4 of the MCU.
At AvengerCon, a celebration of the Avengers’ heroics, Ms. Marvel’s Kamala attends with her best friend Bruno. The convention makes interesting allusions to the Battle of Earth, particularly the demises of Black Widow and Iron Man. Fans of these two heroes have a mural dedicated to them in which they can post their messages of gratitude and admiration. Even though all of Phase 4’s shows and films have focused on Vision, not a single word is said about his sacrifice at the convention.
The MCU has made it clear that the general public is aware of Thanos, his motivations, and the events leading up to and following his defeat. During the meeting, the Falcon and the Winter Soldier debated Blip’s impact on governments around the world, while Hawkeye disclosed that some believed Thanos was correct. Marvel’s fight against Thanos, including how Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) swooped in and dismantled his fleet, also became public knowledge, according to reports. Black Widow and Iron Man are honored, but Vision’s role in Infinity War’s final battle is briefly acknowledged. Wanda’s grief is well-founded, as his fate is known only to those who have WandaVision.
According to Kamala Khan, Scott Lang’s podcast interviews are Ms. Marvel’s primary source of information about their upcoming battle. In spite of this, it is clear that not all information is available to everyone. Things like the Time Heist and what really happened to Black Widow at the end of Endgame are still a mystery.
Even if the Avengers wished to provide the public with as much information as possible, it’s possible that they chose to omit some of the more sensitive details in order to avoid causing more harm or stirring up more confusion. Even so, it’s a snub to Vision that the MCU will maintain in Phase 4. As a member of the Avengers, he deserves recognition for his sacrifice, as his death twice is no less tragic than that of Black Widow and Iron Man.
