Synopsis for "A Passion of the Mind!"Edit

When web-swinging across the city, Spider-Man happens upon a strange man in a long-coat and hat, and soon learns it's the Vision. When Spider-Man tries to help him, the Vision passes out, prompting the wall-crawler to take Vision back to the apartment he shares with Harry Osborne. After checking to make sure Harry is still asleep, Spider-Man rouses the Vision who talks of having seizures.

Unknown to them, the seizures are caused by the Puppet Master, who has recently discovered a crashed alien ship and a robot inside. Using his special puppets, the Puppet Master has been using the "Monsteroid" to do his bidding. The process would interfere with the Vision's brain functions.

Deciding to help the Vision, Spider-Man takes him to a hospital where he uses machines to try and find the source of Vision's seizures. Other than learning that the Vision has two brainwave patterns they learn not much else. However, when they spot the rampaging Monsteroid, the two battle it. When the Vision traces the source of his seizures to the Puppet Master's lair, the Vision uses his phasing powers to knock the Puppet Master out. This causes him to drop his puppet, shattering it on the floor and rendering the Monsteroid inert.

Confused about why the robot he was fighting suddenly stopped, Spider-Man is informed by the Vision of what happened before the Vision departs, leaving Spider-Man to deal with Philip Masters and the Monsteroid.

  • The Vision was last seen in Avengers #105. Plotlines from that issue are alluded to in this one. The Vision is seen next in Avengers #106.
  • This issue features a letters page, Mail It To Team-Up. Letters are published from Matt Graham, Sandie Weissman, and Lynn Stone.
  • As seen on page one, this issue is Story#1052-Z.

Slight editorial goof. The Vision mentions having left the Avengers on uncertain terms (referring to the end of Avengers #105), indicating that story happened first. But in Avengers #105, Vision states he has just come from a battle with the Puppet Master, meaning that this story happened first!
