The Abandoned An' Forsaked - The Vision is the Human Torch?

All throughout December, we will be examining comic book stories and ideas that were not only abandoned, but also had the stories/plots specifically "overturned" by a later writer (as if they were a legal precedent). Click here for an archive of all the previous editions of The Abandoned An' Forsaked. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have any suggestions for future editions of this feature.

Today we look at the connection between the Human Torch and the Vision...


For a few years, there were a couple of hints that the Vision might have some connection to the Human Torch.

From the "ghost" of the Human Torch recognizing the Vision in Giant Size Avengers #3...

to a Sentinel making an interesting comment about the Vision in Avengers #102...

Finally, in Avengers #133-135, it is revealed that the Vision's body was that of the original Human Torch!
