    Any writer self insert relationship is going to be awful... which brings me to Magneto and Rogue. I know it has its fans but blergh.

    They're both old white dudes with name recognition. People don't vote only for ideology or policy.

    Did Perlmutter even concern himself with the comics? As far as I'm aware, it was just the movies/tv where tried to make Inhumans a thing, and the comics were just pushing them to capitalise on the...

    Not to mention Agatha being a pretty awesome character herself. And Marvel would be missing out on casting some Hollywood legends.

    Ahh so that's where it was mentioned Pietro was older. I've been trying for ages to remember what issue that was, since everyone seems to go with the V&S canon where Wanda is older.

    Yeah, it still sounds goofy to me. Surely ScarletVision would have worked just as well if they wanted to imply it was some kooky world Wanda cooked up? Maybe they were worried people wouldn't be able...

    I liked what the family connection did for Magneto's character early into the retcon but they never did anything interesting with it afterwards, so I couldn't care less what happens to that. The...

    Well, that's not exactly it. The first in-story use of "Scarlet Witch" was by an angry mob. I thought it was pretty interesting that she took a derogatory insult for her codename.

    No disagreement here. I think the lack of diversity in writers also added to the problem. Being all dudes, they would naturally find it easier to put themselves in the shoes of either the son or the...

    That relationship was the most boring in the 90s. At least when the retcon was first introduced, there was an interesting tentative trust dynamic. But later on it was just "I hate you, dad!"

    I do think it's hard to write Wanda unless you've read a bunch of her. She's not really a character that can be summed up by a single story.

    Sometimes it feels like the whole X-office has a grudge against her. I wish the Avengers editors would put a stop to it. Don't they realise this sort of thing affects the future usability of the...

    Wanda did get a small push around AoU, and no doubt we wouldn't have gotten that solo if she hadn't been in the movie. I just think it's strangely quiet on the comics side atm. I guess none of the...
