After leaving Earth, Vision encountered a "distress" signal from an A.I.M. space station. However, the signal was a ruse concocted by the station's commander George Tarleton. Tarleton tricked Vision into reactivating an intact Gah Lak Tus module left over from the devastation of the Ultimate Nullifier under the guise that they would order it to self-destruct. During her brief tour of the station, Vision befriended an artificially created girl named Dima.
Vision was later dumped into the station's disposal facility where an eccentric disposal worker decided to keep her intact. After Tarleton was eventually controlled by the Gah Lak Tus module and killed and infected all the A.I.M. crew members, Vision was able to self-repair and revive herself with the help of Dima. Vision was able to undo Tarleton's mental damage caused by his transformation and overcome the module's influence; the three, including Dima, escape the station after destroying it: Vision and Dima escaped the station by traveling on a shuttle waste dump while Tarleton clung to the pieces of the destroyed station as they re-enter Earth's atmosphere.
However, after Vision and Dima arrived on Earth, a fully repaired Gah Lak Tus module also lands in the United States. Vision teamed up with Tarleton and Falcon in destroying the module. During the battle, the group were barely finishing off the module, until Vision was horrified in seeing Tarleton using Dima as a last resort in their battle by letting her self-destruct in front of the Gah Lak Tus module, critically damaging it.
