The Vision

After an extended absence, I've finally gotten another hero to the point that they feel appropriate to post up here.

Vision is one of the most powerful Avengers, with a very unique power set, and definitely feels like he could take just about any other Avengers in a one-on-one fight if he had to.

During the Ultron event, the Avengers at the time stole away what was to be Ultron's final body, including the Mind Stone embedded into its head. Once it was safely stored in Avengers Tower, though, Tony Stark had the idea to bring it to life for their side using fragments of Jarvis. He and Banner almost completed before being met with resistance by Captain Rogers and the Maximoff twins, ultimately being brought to life by a supercharged power surge from Thor.

The Vision first gained consciousness surrounded by the Avengers, lashing out at Thor before calming down and seeing the beauty of life below the tower. Having good knowledge of the situation at hand, Vision opted to help the Avengers stop Ultron's genocide. He assisted the rest of the Avengers by shutting Ultron out of the internet and helping to clean up the remaining Ultron drones and save Sokovia.

Nearly a year later, Vision was a fully fledged member of the New Avengers, developing a close relationship with Wanda Maximoff. When the Lagos incident occurred Vision sided with Tony Stark on the subject of the newly-introduced Sokovia Accords, and tried to protect Wanda from the public by keeping her on lockdown inside the Avengers compound. Unfortunately, Barton's intervention brought Wanda out of hiding, and Vision was effectively buried underneath the Avengers compound. He escaped, flying directly towards Leipzig to help Tony contain Captain Rogers and his team.

During the skirmish, Colonel Rhodes was accidentally hit by a stray beam from the Vision and was paralyzed. After this point, the Vision remained out of the conflict, and was last seen at the nearly-abandoned Avengers compound.

The Vision has an extremely unique and iconic power set. To create his density control, I simply created "Density" as a +6 modifier for Growth: you still can change your weight, Strength, and Toughness, but your Size doesn't change.
