AVENGERS #438 (1999)

Wonder Man and Vision go head to head. Sibling rivalry.

Vision (finally) loses his shit. He’s been pissed about Wonder Man banging his ex-wife–but not admitting it and pretending everything’s cool–for many issues now.

There are some good summaries of Vision’s complex past.

And some good old fashioned self pity.

Under Busiek, Vision’s memories include those of Wonder Man, since Vision was repatterned based on Wonder Man’s identity.

Vision seems to still truly love Scarlet Witch–and wants her to know that he is not the “real guy,” Wonder Man is.

Vision seems to care about Wanda in all this–he’s doing it for her–but clearly he’s got his own anger.

vision punches wonder-man

It’s a solid character issue.
