  1. Poll: Which brings us back to the fact that if Wanda...

    Which brings us back to the fact that if Wanda was guilty of "No More Mutants" then she can never be a hero again, not so much because of what happened in House of M, but the years of misery and...
  2. Poll: One point, though: there are two versions of this...

    One point, though: there are two versions of this scene. The one you've posted is the one from the trades, where Heinberg rewrote a lot of the dialogue. In the original floppy version, Wanda doesn't...
  3. Poll: I don't see the problem with retconning Wanda's...

    I don't see the problem with retconning Wanda's actions to be the act of a villain controlling or manipulating her. That's what they usually do with heroes who turn bad for no good reason. The only...
  4. Poll: A writer who elevates the X-characters while...

    A writer who elevates the X-characters while constantly crapping on Avengers characters does seem, from a certain point of view, to be ideal.

    It's sort of like how in spite of its many flaws, I...
  5. Poll: Children's Crusade was very vague about what...

    Children's Crusade was very vague about what happened. It provided an explanation for why she was so powerful in HoM - something called the "Life Force," which Doom then stole from her, making it...
  6. Poll: No amount of shade the X-Books have thrown at...

    No amount of shade the X-Books have thrown at Wanda under Hickman can ever match Mike Carey's impulse to crap on Wanda. "Endangered Species" was just page after page showing that Wanda was evil and...

    Yes, and I think this was the first Marvel comic (probably not the first comic) to use the story of Alternate Reality versions of the heroes who become authoritarian fascists.

    I always found it amazing that Bob Harras lasted so long as DC Editor-in-Chief, when he lasted such a short time as Marvel Editor-in-Chief. If he is among the layoffs it's not surprising (though...

    The simplest solution there is just that Natalya is Magda, and while that's preposterous and makes no sense, the same goes for every other backstory the twins have had so far.
  10. Poll: I don't think that's really the case - he was a...

    I don't think that's really the case - he was a bad/crazy guy in X-Factor for a little while, then he suddenly became good again, and he got away with lying to the Avengers and the world by saying...

    Poll: I agree with you, but current management at...

    I agree with you, but current management at Marvel clearly thinks that it's better to have just one team instead of splitting the Avengers audience between two teams. I wish it were otherwise because...

    Tom Brevoort has repeatedly said he doesn't want to bring back the West Coast Avengers (he's probably not alone: Mark Gruenwald, the editor who launched the title, said he regretted it because it...
  13. Poll: What is Cher’s mutant power?

    What is Cher’s mutant power?
  14. Poll: This is 2020 when the X-Books get whatever they...

    This is 2020 when the X-Books get whatever they want (and why not, the fans deserve it after the Inhumans years). If Hickman wants it he gets it. Maybe the Avengers character is Mystique or...
  15. Poll: As a Wanda fan I consider you folks very...

    As a Wanda fan I consider you folks very optimistic for believing she wasn't just killed and eaten off-panel.
  16. Poll: The "ring a bigger bell" line also confirms that...

    The "ring a bigger bell" line also confirms that Doctor Strange gives terrible, terrible advice, at least where Wanda is concerned. It's in the classic tradition of "using magic to have kids with a...
  17. Poll: Probably. This mini is a round-robin thing with...

    Probably. This mini is a round-robin thing with writers taking turns writing a few pages at a time, and Hickman wrote the opening scene with Wanda and is, I believe, coming back to write the ending....

    Wanda has not had great luck with synergy, though. I mean they've known about WandaVision for as long as Falcon/Winter Soldier, but the latter got a miniseries to be released as a trade in advance of...

    Jan has a couple of other related things holding her back: she was moved out of the Avengers very early and replaced by Wanda, and while the two of them were both Avengers mainstays for a long time...

    I'd rather read her in a bad Avengers run than nothing at all. But I'm kind of extreme because I would rather she stayed on an Avengers team instead of getting her solo book. I just think she's not...

    It's because the X-Men are being pushed hard by Marvel at the moment (which is fine, they deserve it after the Inhumans years), so the cover has to have the X-Men along with the Avengers and the FF....

    I don't think they have to be complex, though, is what I'm saying. The comics are constantly making simple premises complicated because of all the events and relaunches and the need to constantly...

    My definition of "classic members" is the members who aren't solo stars and only lived in the Avengers books, e.g. Scarlet Witch, Vision, Hawkeye, Wasp, Hank Pym, and later Wonder Man and Monica...

    I don't know if the MCU will survive because I don't know if movie theatres as we know them will survive. But I am willing to bet that the MCU versions of these stories will be more satisfying than...

    I sometimes Tweet Brevoort about Wanda, mostly from sheer frustration, but I do know he would never actually tell people if there were plans for Wanda or Vision or Jan or the other classic Avengers....
