    That's a good point. The scene is pretty ambiguous about whether Agatha is telling the truth, but what she claims of herself -- she didn't mean to break the rules, the dark magic just came to her and...

    I don't think they're portraying Agatha as evil, no. Maybe there will be a "bigger bad" teased at the end of the series, like with Thanos in the first Avengers movie. But Agatha has already been...

    Wanda's brief scenes with Carol in "Star" made me think Thompson would have a good take on their relationship, with Wanda more hopeful that Ripley could be redeemed and Carol more cynical. That's...

    I think you're right. While I don't like the idea of Agatha as an antagonist, it's obvious that they see a lot of potential in Kathryn Hahn to be the kind of breakout character Tom Hiddleston was as...

    A huge, huge advantage of MCU Wanda over comics Wanda is that MCU Wanda only has one set of parents. None of this thing where she found out her real parents were American superheroes but wait, no, it...

    They might eventually need to just throw in the towel and do Wanda's version of the "replaced by a Skrull" story, which of course in her case would be that she was replaced by her evil...

    I will say this, before 2021 it was possible that despite Wanda being in the MCU, she was still best known as Magneto's daughter. Her parts in the MCU were small, she was much more like a telekinetic...

    Maybe I'm wrong but I doubt Feige really cares. He can do whatever he wants with MCU Franklin (if/when he arrives) because he controls all the characters. De-mutantizing comics Franklin is a way of...

    I was hoping for a different twist but it really looks like it's going to be Wanda vs. Agatha (magic), Vision vs. Vision (tech), and maybe Monica vs. Fietro.

    I'm on the train of believing that whether or not Wanda is a mutant is basically semantics at this point. According to the retcon, she's not a mutant, the High Evolutionary just altered her DNA so...

    A lot of the "special thanks" credits are very random. They added Jim Shooter last week and no one knows exactly what story they're crediting him for.

    Yeah, I used to think she might be a villain but at this point I’ve come to suspect that she, like Agatha, moved in when this huge burst of magic happened. That’s why she’s “heard things” about Wanda...

    Scarlet Witch, with her newfound popularity, is also a natural for the Timm approach.

    I still think the "Dottie is Clea" or "Dottie is Arcanna" theories are a bit much, but it is hard to shake the idea that maybe she does have some connection to Doctor Strange, if only because it...

    I think we can argue about Wanda's culpability next week when everything is revealed; I do think they've pushed too much to the last episode, one way or the other.
