      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.

    Or we reject absolutely everything about the origin that wasn't written by Roy Thomas. Which, frankly, is what I do in my head. There simply was no reason for any of this. The Vision was not a broken character. These writers did not improve him.


Well as a Roy Thomas fan and a non-Englehart fan I can't fault your decision. Connecting Vision to Jim robs Vision of his majesty. And ruins Jim by not making Jim Jim anymore.
