Vision 1: Little Worse Than A Man

Серия: "-"

The Vision wants to be human, and what's more human than family? So he heads back to the beginning, to the laboratory where Ultron created him and molded him into a weapon. The place where he first rebelled against his given destiny and imagined that he could be more -that he could be a man. There, he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition -or is that obsession? -the unrelenting need to be ordinary. Behold the Visions!

King Tom (1851–1878) was an British Thoroughbred racehorse. He was sired by Harkaway and out of the exceptional mare Pocahontas who also foaled Stockwell. King Tom won races at age two and at age three he was not quite recovered from an injury when he finished second by a neck to Andover in the 1854 Epsom Derby. He came out of the Derby with a tendon injury that curtailed his racing for the remainder of the year. At age four, King Tom returned to the track and won one race before breaking down.

Retired to stud duty, he became the founding stallion for Baron Mayer de Rothschild's Mentmore and Crafton Studs. Between 1861 and 1877 King Tom was one of the United Kingdom's top ten sires 14 times and the Leading sire in Great Britain & Ireland in 1870 and 1871. He sired the 1866 and 1867 Epsom Oaks winners, Tormentor and Hippia. He also sired 1864 1,000 Guineas winner Tomato plus another outstanding filly Hannah who in 1871 won the Epsom Oaks, 1,000 Guineas and St. Leger Stakes. One of his most important foals was his daughter, St. Angela, dam of St. Simon and granddam of Orme.

King Tom is the damsire of Favonius, winner of the 1871 Epsom Derby and the grandsire of the Irish Derby winner Umpire plus the grandsire of United States Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Ten Broeck.

King Tom died at age twenty-seven in January 1878. He was buried in the grounds of Mentmore Towers beneath a life sized bronze statue by Sir Joseph Boehm. The statue is now at Dalmeny House in Scotland.
