    I don't think (speaking as a Jewish person) it's...

    I don't think (speaking as a Jewish person) it's the same thing as casting a character who has a consistent ethnicity or set of parents. The idea that Wanda and Pietro are Romani/Jewish...
  2. I will say this, if Wanda after House of M had...

    I will say this, if Wanda after House of M had been the star of a story arc about how everyone hated her, I'd have been overjoyed as a Wanda fan. Instead she wasn't in anything for years.

    That...
  3. Poll: I like it.

    I like it.
  4. Poll: It was also a complete pain for any other artist...

    It was also a complete pain for any other artist to draw because of all the folds of clothing: it's both too skimpy and too complicated.

    That's actually why it was abandoned after George Pérez...
  5. Poll: Gotta agree with Ferro on this one. There have...

    Gotta agree with Ferro on this one. There have been many attempts to turn Wanda and Pietro into positive representation, most recently Pietro's miniseries. It never works. They never had that...

    I really wish the Jean/Wanda backup stories from X-Men First Class (by Jeff Parker and Colleen Coover) had gotten its own comic. They were probably the best Wanda-centric content in the 2000s, not...

    Isn't this just the individual character equivalent of another perpetual topic, "Why are mutants hated more than people who got their powers by accident?"

    The character who supports "Minority Report"...

    The character who supports "Minority Report" style tactics always comes off as a fascist. It doesn't matter if they are or not, it's just built into the DNA of this kind of story.

    It's the same...

    This was the first event I can recall where tie-in books openly made fun of how pointless it was. The Scarlet Witch tie-in issue was just 20 pages of her talking about how stupid this event sounded...
  10. Poll: That Bendis issue of "All-New X-Men" with the...

    That Bendis issue of "All-New X-Men" with the Uncanny Avengers I think kind of summed up Wanda's presence in the X-Men books post-AvX. The teen X-Men are horrified to learn about the Decimation and...

    I'll repeat again that for Wanda I think there's a case that the Magnus Family connection hurt her, because she was not allowed to appear in the "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" cartoon - she and...
  12. Poll: There have been so many writers confused about...

    There have been so many writers confused about who or what Dark Phoenix was, and its relationship to Jean, that it's pretty much taken on a life of its own apart from the original retcon. I don't...

    I doubt it originated there, but the first time I...

    I doubt it originated there, but the first time I saw that was in an issue of "Ultimate X-Men" written by Brian Vaughan, where Longshot dismisses "Arthur" as "what the humans call me," in a parallel...
  14. Poll: I don't see anything wrong with that. Children's...

    I don't see anything wrong with that. Children's Crusade was vague about what happened but did include one point of guilt (going to Doom) and an ending where Wanda was acting like nothing could...
  15. Poll: That's why we need a definitive retcon,...

    That's why we need a definitive retcon, Children's Crusade leaves everything so open and creates so many timeline problems that Deniers like me can just shrug and say there's no definitive...
  16. Poll: And that brings us right back to the old problem:...

    And that brings us right back to the old problem: if Wanda decimated an entire race to get back at her father then she can never be a hero again. Hurting innocents to get revenge on one person is...
  17. Poll: Wanda needs a big old-fashioned retcon story....

    Wanda needs a big old-fashioned retcon story. There is no actual canon explanation or timeline for most of the stuff that happened in Avengers Disassembled / House of M. There wasn't even one at the...
  18. Poll: Yet another confusing thing about Wiccan and...

    Yet another confusing thing about Wiccan and Speed: they were never, at any point, officially considered mutants. They were never officially not considered mutants either, it was just never...
  19. Poll: Agree about Roberto, but I liked the trailer and...

    Agree about Roberto, but I liked the trailer and thought it seemed promising - like a (less diverse) version of the early Claremont run but with some of the dark tone of the Claremont/Sienkiewicz...
  20. Poll: It's never been really explained what Billy and...

    It's never been really explained what Billy and Tommy are or how they came to be. In "Young Avengers" Billy speculates that when Wanda lost her children to Mephisto, their souls went into new bodies....
  21. Poll: That reminds me, Wanda's appearance in a...

    That reminds me, Wanda's appearance in a flashback in the Young Avengers annual, where Billy met her for the first time (the source of Wanda's infamous "being a mutant only makes people want to punch...
  22. Poll: Oh, I think that was probably on purpose. The...

    Oh, I think that was probably on purpose. The writer wasn't allowed to completely exonerate Wanda as she deserved, so what we got was a story that had a lot of holes in it, freeing the characters and...
  23. Poll: It’s from the JLA/Avengers crossover. The two...

    It’s from the JLA/Avengers crossover. The two teams are merged into one world and their memories are changed (similar to House of M) and they find out all the terrible things that happened to them in...

    Two that come to mind are the Absolute Edition of Alan Moore's "Swamp Thing," and the Marvel Omnibus of Walt Simonson's "Thor." Both have been recolored by Steve Oliff.

    I dislike recoloring...

    I agree it's hypocritical to "call out" other characters that way. As I said earlier I don't think it's any more in character for Scott to refuse Wanda's offer to re-power mutants. I get that all...
