from the minds of the great comics team of Joe Simon and Jack
Kirby, the Vision first appeared in the Golden Age, and enjoyed a healthy
run in Marvel Mystery Comics. He has also made appearances in recent years.
According to Wikipedia:
"The Golden Age Vision, also known as Aarkus,
is an alien law enforcement officer from a dimension called Smokeworld.
While Aarkus is looking for a suitable place to exile a prisoner, he is accidentally
contacted by an Earth scientist named Markham Erickson. Leaving the prisoner
on the planet Jupiter, Aarkus accepts Erickson's invitation to fight crime on
Earth. Aarkus does so for several years, although during World War II, he is briefly
manipulated by the Axis powers into fighting the Allies. The superhero team the
Invaders, however, manage to help Aarkus realize his mistake."

simulacrum of the Vision was temporarily created from the mind of Rick Jones,
along with those of the Blazing Skull, the Fin, and the Golden Age
Angel and Patriot, to aid the superhero team the Avengers
during the Kree-Skrull War."
" In the present day, it
is revealed that he inhabits the sewers under New York, taking care of a Cosmic
Cube that is feeding off the feelings of people affected by the death of Captain
America, at the end of a stint with time traveling, we last see him with the
newly resurrected Toro. Aarakus can generate illusory images of himself;
fly; generate ice and extreme cold; and teleport wherever there is smoke."
