    Surprised you said this one was so good. It's fairly infamous for the dismantling of the Vision. Let's be honest...the character never really recovered.

Infamous is right. Until this issue, Byrne could do no wrong in my eyes. But I was disgusted at what he did to the Vision.


    Reverend Meteor (thankfully I was never a Wanda or Vision fan so Byrne ruining them for all time didn't bother me)

What bothered me the most is the disregard for the heaps of continuity that showed the Vision as a being of (synthetic) tissue, bone and blood. He was NEVER a mechanical robot until Byrne showed him dismantled on that table. Heck, there was a whole issue of Ant Man traveling through the interior of Vision's body, and I promise you it wasn't gears and circuitry.

Wanda never recovered either. Byrne made her look like a loony who fell in love with an inanimate object. On top of it all, Byrne inexplicably kept the Vision hanging around, but stripped him of his awesome costume, his depth and his personality. Pale Vision was a ghost of his former self, and it was repugnant.

What a complete misunderstanding of these characters. What a waste of a very sweet romance.
