Quote:I don't think that's fair to say.
Quote:Stern already had the Englehart retcon of Vision being the Human Torch to work with but this was before the Byrne retconning of that retcon.
So now I hate Steve Englehart's role in this too!
Quote:So at that point time I think it would safe to say Phineas Horton did most of the reformatting of Human Torch into Vision as stated in Avengers #135 but one of Ultron's contribution was this control chip...which was neither a part of Jim when Phineas originally created him or when Phineas reformatted him into the Vision per Ultron's threats. I would say the control chip was something Phineas wouldn't have created and it just wasn't his tech.
I give up. The level of retcons here in impenetrable. And none of it was necessary. Not one bit of it.
Englehart - Stern - Byrne - Roy Thomas's character didn't need your help.
