Synopsis for "Deceptions!"
While his teammates remain wary of his new personality, the Vision secretly plots with ISAAC to create a paradise on Earth by assuming personal control of all its computer systems. At the same time, he is troubled by nightmares in which his human and mechanical selves are at odds. Meanwhile, the Wasp, vacationing in the Caribbean, makes the acquaintance of both Baron Walther Theodoric and Paul Denning who becomes her constant companion. Her suspicions that Paul may be a hit-man out to assassinate the Baron prove unfounded when Denning instead is revealed as the adventurer-for-hire, Paladin, and his quarry as the ersatz mystic criminal Baron Brimstone. Together, Paladin and the Wasp foil Brimstone's scheme to loot the resort casino's vault.
- Captain America returns to active status on the team.
