By this point, the Vision has been wrestling with the idea of how to truly help the Earth and how far he can go to do it. When anti-mutant fanatics burn down the home of himself and the Scarlet Witch, Vision goes ahead with his plan. He arranges for the team to be sent on an encounter with some aliens and Captain Marvel on a wild goose chase into space. Then, the Vision basically takes over the computers of the entire Earth, believing that by controlling all nuclear weapons and systems, he will be able to achieve world peace. The team must face off, not in a physical battle but try and convince the Vision that he's using bad methods for a noble goal.
Stern really connects to these characters, Captain America a smart and capable fighter, Starfox smarter than he seems and more. Vision is presented in a wonderful way, an android who wants to be more human but worries about this world and thinks this is the best way to handle it. The issue where the team (including Vision's "brother" Wonder Man) try to talk him down is well-written, answering questions as to why the Avengers don't take more of a hand in world affairs. The action is all great with terrific artwork and fun with sequences like the team facing demons with the air of the Fantastic Four and the Dire Wraith storyline is truly scary. Once more, a must-have for Avengers fans as it would set up segments of John Byrne's future West Coast run and why Stern is so well-regarded by fans as one of the best comic writers of his time.
