Quote:Assuming that's the case - and I had never heard of this but maybe it was emphasized after Roy Thomas left the book - then the crystal is a part of the Vision's body. Every portion of the Vision's body from head to toe was built by Ultron. The crystal is no different. We humans have components in our brains that modulate our personality and voice. The Vision does too, apparently.
I think it goes against the spirit of the character but yeah he's technically correct. I had to look it up but Vision's emotional growth had been stunted by a control crystal Ultron implanted in him as revealed in Avengers #254.
Also according to Avengers #135 Ultron had Phineas remake the human torch into Vision because he wasn't having any luck with Jim's systems. So "every portion" isn't correct. Even with the Avengers Forever retcon I think we're still at Phineas did most of the work.
Yes as it stands it looks like despite avengers forever that Horton was still forced to reformat torch into vision
