Marvel cancels Cain, Mohan, Koch’s ‘The Vision’ miniseries

This decision comes a month before retailers’ orders for the first issue were due.

Chelsea Cain’s second Marvel series has been canceled before it had a chance to even begin. Newsarama reports that The Vision, by Cain, her husband Marc Mohan and artists Aud Koch and Jordie Bellaire, will no longer arrive in November, the month for which it was previously solicited.

The new miniseries, which was announced this past summer in San Diego, would have followed in the same vein as Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta’s critically praised run on the character, which introduced his family, including Viv Vision, who currently appears in The Champions. This decision comes a month before retailers’ orders for the first issue were due.

Cain addressed the cancellation on Twitter:

As for why it was canceled, Marvel hasn’t officially given a reason, but according to The Hollywood Reporter:

Sources told THR that the decision to cancel the project was not made lightly, but came down to a shift in long-term publishing plans for both the superhero Vision and his daughter, Viv, who was slated to be one of the primary characters in the new series.

Cain is the author of several novels, including The Night Season, Evil at Heart and One Kick. She previously wrote Mockingbird for Marvel, and the team she worked with on that comic has reunited for Man-Eaters from Image Comics.
