Ultimate Vision is a five-issue comic book limited series published by Marvel Comics.

The series is a sequel to The Ultimate Galactus Trilogy and follows The Vision leaving earth. It is written by Mike Carey and the art is done by Brandon Peterson.


After leaving Earth, Vision encountered a "distress" signal from a A.I.M. space station. However, the signal was a ruse concocted by the station's commander George Tarleton. Tarleton tricked Vision into reactivating an intact Gah Lak Tus module left over from the devastation of the Ultimate Nullifier under the guise that they would order it to self-destruct. During her brief tour of the station, Vision befriended an artificially created girl named Dima. After she helped in "deactivating" the module, the power of the module was transferred into Tarleton. In "repayment" for Vision's aid, Tarleton uses his new-found power to fire an energy beam at her, breaking her in half and take control of the module, turning him into more of a cybernetic monster. Vision was later dumped into the station's disposal facility where an eccentric disposal worker decided to keep her intact. After Tarleton was eventually controlled by the Gah Lak Tus module and killed and infected all the A.I.M. crew members, Vision was able to self-repair and revive herself with the help of Dima. Vision was able to undo Tarleton's mental damage caused by his transformation and overcome the module's influence; the three, including Dima, escape the station after destroying it: Vision and Dima escaped the station by traveling on a shuttle waste dump while Tarleton clung to the pieces of the destroyed station as they re-enter Earth's atmosphere. However, after Vision and Dima re-enter Earth, a fully repaired Gah Lak Tus module also re-enters Earth into the United States. Following the module fully planned on destroying and feeding the Earth, Vision teamed up with Tarleton and Falcon in destroying the module. During the battle, the group were barely finishing off the module, until Vision was horrified in seeing Tarleton using Dima as a last resort in their battle by letting her self-destruct in front of the Gah Lak Tus module, critically damaging it. After the module was destroyed, Vision was infuriated with Tarleton's callous action and violently ripped his cybernetic head off his body and threw it far over the horizon. Deeply saddened by the loss of Dima and being unable to leave Earth, Falcon comforts her and gave her his keys to his apartment in La Jolla if she needs a place to stay. The series ends with Tarleton's head, still intact, requesting someone to home in on his signal and pick him up.
