    Because it was there. I assume if the Avengers had Millie the Model's memory tape on file the Vision would have gotten that one.

    I think Ultron just needed a template of some sort to build Vision's personality.

Why not give Vizh his own, instead of that of his enemies? Still odd!

I did some digging....

Steve Englehart gives us an answer in Avengers #135.

Ultron gets Jim Hammond's body from the Mad Thinker but realizes he is not up to the task of updating Hammond's body. Ultron realizes he needs Hammond's creator to update him and kidnaps Phineas Horton. When the Vision wakes up he has Jim's mind (Horton refused to delete it) and Vision attacks Ultron. Ultron defeats Vision and deletes the Jim Hammond personality and uses the Avengers memory tape he found to give Vision a blank personality.

Ultron didn't know whose mind he was giving to Vision he just found the tape in Pym's possession (maybe a later retcon changed this). The procedure was never meant to give Vision Simon's memories nor did that happen. Like I said earlier Ultron wanted a template to just build a new personality around...Ultron's goal never had anything to do with Simon...he just found the memory tape and used it to give Vision a baseline personality...Ultron was going to add to it after that.

Ultron didn't want a copy of himself as the issue points out. He wanted a son who would feel subservient to Ultron for creating him.
