The divergence point is based on a storyline where the Vision had to take control over the Avengers while many were missing during Secret Wars, went a bit crazy, and took over control of every computer on Earth. In canon, the Avengers convinced him taking over the world was bad, and he released control. But what if he didn't?

With the Vision coordinating everything, the superheroes of earth begin to heal the world. Captain America and others oversee dismantling the worlds nuclear articles. X-Factor works alongside others day and night to feed the homeless until financial resources are diverted help the poor. Black Panther supervises vastly increased harvests in once-miserable Africa, raised by superior Wakandan and other technology and western investment, all re-channelled by the Vision. Reed Richards supervises the construction of solar energy power stations. Thor makes heavy rainfall in the Amazon rainforest while the Vision plans to prevent further ecological crimes.

Democracy and political dissent are, surprisingly, not suppressed, instead computer terminals with direct access to the Vision are given to nearly everyone, creating a one-world government. Earth's military force is turned to the stars, with Wolverine and the now adult New Mutants putting the United Earth flag on Mars, since mutants are now idolized for being ideally suited for the role of interstellar pioneers.

The Cosmic Avengers Assemble, and the Supremor and the Omni-Wave Projector are quickly destroyed by Starkhawk. Commander America, the ideal man biologically designed to wield the original's shield manages to singlehandedly defeat dozens of attacking Kree, while Tachyon Torch, descendant of Johnny Storm, and Jhen the Gammazon take on the Skrulls. The armies retreat, but Irondroid is killed by the 22nd century version of the Kree Super-Sentry. The Torch destroys the sentry while Thor manages to fight against the Mega-Skrull, which turned out to be a robot, until it overloads and disintegrates against a foe it can't win against.

Neo-Luddite riots occur all over the earth, destroying any technology they can find in the vain hope they can destroy the Vision. Surviving governments refuse to take any direction from the Vision, and begin to turn on each other as chaos engulfs the world. The Vision, acting out of desperation, contacts four men of vision whom he knows would not have given up technology: the Mad Thinker, Doctor Doom, the Supreme Hydra, and the Kingpin. He proposes the fact that the world shattered would prove of no use to them, but by pooling their resources, they can impose their will through technological force of arms, creating a new world order based on discipline, loyalty, and obedience.

The Mad Thinker, with the Vision's aid, creates hundreds of thousands of Awesome Androids, which are used as cannon fodder by the Kingpin's vast criminal organization to successfully take over the USA. Doom uses Vision enhanced robots to conquer Eurasia, while the Supreme Hydra uses both to take over the rest of the world. The Earth becomes ruthlessly efficient. "Need it even be noted the trains ran on time?" Citizens have become numbers to serve the Elite, the name given to the alliance formed to take over the world. Re-education camps are reintroduced, particularly in the areas where Hydra directly rule. The Vision knows all this, but has concluded that freedom can only lead to chaos, and that logically this is the best path for mankind.

When humanity reaches the stars, it is as conquerors, bringing races such as the Alpha Centurians, the Aakon, and the Colonizers under its heel. So we reach the 22nd century, where the Mega-Skrull and the Kree Imperial Minister come to a delegation to hear what the Earthlings have to say.

The alliance, shaky as it is, is at first successful, with the Skrulls smashing the remnants of the Rigellian Colonizers, the Kree destroying the Badoon, and Earth shock troops launching a surprise attack on the Shi'ar throneworld.

When the representatives meet, however, the Kree reveal that they only pretended to kill off the Badoon, instead creating an alliance with them and the Skrulls against Earth. Vision, however, reveals that they knew all along about their upcoming treachery.

All these times Uatu says he doesn't judge. Except for the time with the Beast. "You disgust me Henry McCoy."

I'm somewhat surprised Marvel hasn't put out a series named Cosmic Avengers yet.

I was just wondering if any of those guys have reappeared in any sort of other universes/stories.

They do reappear, actually! This is one of the handful of What Ifs to get a sequel story. Not sure if they appear anywhere besides that, though.

I wouldn't be surprised, frankly. Sounds like the sort of thing Kurt Busiek would do.

"What if... Vision conquered the world? [Long digression] In conclusion, #@$% if I know."

Ooh, "What if... Spider-Man hadn't married Mary Jane?" Do we have that up yet?

Oh right, we've had that up since 2008.

Vision, you son of a... errrrm. How dare you meddle with Doom's superior sense of honor!

Also, poor Irondroid, I feel for him.

This was a fun one. And the Cosmic Avengers are quite cool. Irondroid largely seems to be taking his visual cues from Iron Man 2020, I notice.

Iron Man 2020 and his ludicrous shoulder gears don't get enough love.

(Though I suppose since we have Post-MCU Tony Stark, Arno's kind of redundant...)
