  He looks a lot like the 70's Vision. I thought it might be the same guy, but a little websearch showed me different.

  I was looking forward to getting to see the golden age vision and he did not disapoint. I know that this is a different vision but it is cool seeing the inspiration for the vision that comes along later.

  "BEHOLD...The Vision!" Right from the very first image, you can tell this is the kind of story a Silver/Bronze Age Marvel fan will want to read. They definitely called back to this one with that Avengers cover debuting the Silver Age Vision.

I think the story could have lived without the African American servant racist caricature.

The powers-come-from-smoke thing is...strange, but not necessarily bad. I can see there being some deeper explanation that the chemical reaction of fire burning and creating all that smoke releasing some alien energy from another place with different scientific rules. Plus, the smoke is a great way to get that Weird Nightmarish Vision imagery.

Speaking of, Kirby knocks it out of the park on the art. Kirby, and the Simon/Kirby team-up, are easily the best thing Marvel/Timely has going for them at this early stage.
