The ultimate Vision story begins with catastrophe, as the android Avenger is laid low by...the Barrier! But if it doesn't kill him, will his experience only make him stronger? And are Earth's Mightiest prepared for the answer? The old order changeth once again as the Avengers welcome aboard Starfox and a new Captain Marvel - but does that leave any room for Spider-Man?
And it's guest stars galore as the Fantastic Four move in to the mansion, the ghost of Spider-Woman haunts the team, and Dr. Strange makes a house call seeking Scarlet Witch's aid dealing with Dracula, lord of the vampires!

The Vision takes command!
As many of Earth's Mightiest are whisked away to fight in the Secret Wars, the newly assertive synthezoid seizes the chair. He has changes in store when the heroes return, not least his idea for a new team of Avengers on the West Coast. But there are Dire Wraiths and demons to deal with back East, not to mention an army of Hulks and Thanos' monstrous minions the Blood Brothers! Hercules and Black Knight return to the fold, while Starfox discovers an uncanny connection to the Eternals just in time to face the menace of Maelstrom. But as Vision's true plan unfolds, are even two teams of Avengers enough to handle one of their own?
