Vision Becomes “Vishawn” Thanks To ‘WandaVision’ Season Finale Meme

WandaVision has unintentionally birthed one of the funniest memes to hit social media recently — “Vishawn.”

WandaVision, the Disney+ series centered around Wanda Maximoff and Vision, ended last week after its season finale aired on March 5 (rest assured, there’s no spoilers ahead). And sure, fans are focused on how the show’s end foreshadows what’s to come next within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but they’re also focused on a meme that the show’s final episode birthed, too — “Vishawn.”

Black Twitter has reimagined Vision as Vishawn, primarily using the following screengrab image of him and photoshopping everything from a silver (or possibly vibranium) necklace to a “Wanda” hand tattoo on the character.

In reimagining Vison as Vishawn, it’s only right that some fans have since given Wanda her own counterpart, too — LaWanda.

But the most hilarious part of all this is fans jokingly saying Vision is technically Black because he’s made of vibranium, which comes from Wakanda. Yes, the same powerful metal that was used to create Black Panther’s suit and Captain America’s shield was also used to create Vision.

It’s unknown if Paul Bettany is aware of the Vishawn memes or not. Hopefully, he is, because they’re hilarious, and now we’re all imagining an alternate universe where Vishawn and LaWanda actually exist. As for if we’ll be getting a second season of WandaVision at some point in the future, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige reportedly said the following at a recent Television Critics Association press tour: “I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite ‘No’ to anything as far as a second season of WandaVision.”

If a WandaVision season two happens, it’s very, very, very unlikely we’ll get a Vishawn cameo. But at least he exists within the Black Social Media Universe now.
