I really enjoy this game.

Have it for Megadrive.

As a big marvel fan so love how they all look old school in this. Although I do have to say vision looks awful in this game. Would it have been so hard to have him in green and red?

Who knows that they were thinking when they made the character. It'd be interesting to learn what happened with that.

Took a good look through the Internet and no answer to that. The developer probably just no idea who vision was a just guessed instead of asked.

I wouldn't be surprised, particularly given the timelines they had to deal with.

Did some research on this and the character was all white in the comics between 1989 and about 1991. The game came out in 1992 so I guess during development the vision was in his all white attire. Still don't think it looks correct though.

Ah, so that was their reference material.  That explains the character's look in the game.
