    Cebulski really seems to love these '90s style X-Force-ish teams.

    Anyway I'm glad Jan fans have gotten so much of her lately; she deserves it, though I'd still like to see her get back on the...

    I would say "The Kree-Skrull War," but in a very different way from "Dark Phoenix." The Kree-Skrull War is the arc where Roy Thomas used the Avengers to bind together all of Marvel comics into what...

    Ah, thanks. Even I'm not used to how fast the resurrection treadmill works today.

    Mancha was killed off in Vision's series, but that doesn't preclude him showing up of course.

    I really hope the Scarlet Witch gets to be in this (or anything, really), but I'm not optimistic because she isn't exactly part of the Ultron "family" in the way that Hank, Vision, Jan and Jocasta...

    The only thing I liked about the "Avengers Origins: Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver" comic is that it actually did try to explain this. They're in the chalet at one point saying "He won't suspect we're...

    All right, to break the trend of complaining about Wanda not appearing enough (which I do as much as anyone) I'll try a question:

    What first made you a fan of the Scarlet Witch? It can be a comic...

    It wasn't just about her association with Magneto. Marvel will never tell us what was going on with the rights, but Wanda was left off a lot of promotional material in the mid-'10s during the period...

    Magneto started as an insane genocidal ranter modeled on Hitler, and at some point in the 80s he became a dignified well-intentioned extremist, and it wasn't until 1991 that we got even a retroactive...

    Cebulski really does want it to be 1992 again, doesn't he.

    I doubt it, since Ewing said recently on Twitter that he isn't assigned to write Wanda any time soon. (He didn't say nobody is, just that he isn't.)

    Uncanny Avengers shows the weaknesses of writers using Avengers books to continue storylines from other books (which has been going on at least since the Roy Thomas days, to be fair). The Apocalypse...

    Pretty much, I think. A lot of the "core Avengers" supporting characters have not been on the team much since Disassembled. The whole purpose of that was to get rid of most of those characters...

    Sometimes the MCU pulls things from recent comics, like Thanos's henchmen. So stuff we see in the comics today may well seep into the movies tomorrow, if only because it's cheaper for them to borrow...

    I think being a mutant is very important to Wanda just because of the history aspect of being a founding member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants who then became one of the two first "evil" mutants...

    I don't really care about Wanda's power level, but I have to admit I was kind of glad that the makers of Endgame made it possible for fans to argue about whether she or Carol was the biggest threat...

    I feel like Saoirse Ronan is lucky she didn't get Jean, or for that matter another part she was considered for, Scarlet Witch (a more popular movie franchise but a small part). I don't think she'd...

    The ironic thing is that Jean in some ways had a bigger presence in Uncanny X-Men when she was dead than when she was alive, at least to begin with.

    It's like the rule that a character who is...

    I’m 90% sure Whedon gave her the mind control power because the plot needed the Avengers to have bad visions. That’s how powers work when they’re as poorly defined in the comics as Wanda’s. Writers...

    I think my point is more that if I think a story is effective then its violations of the "show don't tell" rule aren't necessarily flaws.

    There are a lot of rules of storytelling that are really...

    I don't know why I check every month to see if the Scarlet Witch is in something, knowing that she won't be (she isn't). The year and a half when she had a solo was a real outlier in that respect.
