      I would have been happier with that explanation than the one that Vision is Jim Hammond.

      They had no right to turn Jim into the Vision. Jim and the Vision were nothing alike.

    Indeed and it happened, on top of that, right in the middle of one of the most convoluted Avengers stories of the Bronze Age.
    You'll notice that most of the explanations in this story are unconvincing.
    Why would Ultron need the Thinker & Norton to create and update an android if it is able to update itself ?
    Why would an AI have a "normal lifespan" ?
    Why would it need an android son ?
    Why would it prefer to recycle the Human Torch android instead of helping QUASIMODO (a fellow AI) ?
    Why would it need the Vision to have a scarlet face to remind Ultron of the Human Torch (since when Ultron has cared about humour & irony and why would an AI in a robotic body need a reminder) ?

To me that whole story kicked off these convoluted comic plot explanation dumps that they still do today. Comics were simpler before that.
