Also … is it us or does Wandas “Glamor” swimwear thingy feel like a reference to a few of her original, skimpier costumes?

Wanda and Visions phase magic act name has them passing the name of “Illusion” (Vision) and “Glamor” (Wanda). In the Vision and the Scarlet Witch comics, Illusion and Glamor were characters of their own, well known stage magicians Ilya and Glynis Zarkov, who got along next-door neighbors of our preferred weirdo couple.

Vision made his very first appearance in the comics in the pages of Avengers # 57 in 1968. However perhaps most notably, that helicopter bears the logo design of SWORD (which we composed more about here) on it.

That would be Teyonah Parris as “Geraldine,” who it has already been revealed remains in reality the grown up version of Monica Rambeau, the girl we satisfied in Captain Marvel. While were on the subject, is it us, or does Geraldines brooch look a little like the logo she wore when she took on the mantle of Captain Marvel in the comics?
