    I did some digging for the old CBR legends link that talks about that rather infamous page. Simply put, the pages that went to print were NOT what we imagine that scene to be.

    It was basically fixed from the original page that the top of Wanda's head was still on panel and her fingers were glowing from her power so that she could scratch into Simon's chest skin.

    The original artwork however......well here's the link, see for yourself

That was fascinating! Len Kaminski is an excellent storyteller, by the way. And pretty darn good with photoshop, too.

So now I hate Byrne even more than I did before. Not only did he obliterate one of the greatest comic book characters of all time (the Bronze Age Vision) and one of the greatest love stories of all time (the Vision and the Scarlet Witch) but he also laid all the groundwork for Disassembled and what followed. I never realized this before. Bendis was simply extrapolating from plot points that had all been laid down by Byrne.
