Superman can control his heat vision, most likely by converging the beams such that they destructively interfere at the intended point of contact.

But what about Vision, how does he control the beam from the mind stone?

Can he control it?

    Is there any evidence it doesn't just continue until it hits something?

  • fyi: we haven't seen the soul stone yet; vision has the mind stone.

    "Do you know, I don't know what this is. Not really. I know it's not of this world. But it powered Loki's staff, gave you your abilities. But its true nature is a mystery. And yet, it is part of me. ...I wish to understand it. The more I do, the less it controls me. One day, who knows, I may even control it." He can't control it, because he doesn't know how to control it yet. Jun 20, 2017 at 16:04

He can't. The energy beam from his Infinity Stone just goes until it hits something. If he could control his beam the way you're describing, it's unlikely that he would have

shot James Rhodes out of the sky, nearly killing him

in Captain America: Civil War. In that case, Vision's target dodges the beam, and it kept going until it hit the next thing in it's way.
