    I've always liked some of Marvel/Timely's humor comics, particularly "Millie the Model" and "Patsy Walker." They reveal Lee to be not quite in the top tier of scriptwriters, like Frank Doyle at...

    Well, if a producer writes as much of the dialogue as Stan Lee did, they would probably be eligible to give themselves a writing credit, even if they were writing entirely from someone else's notes. ...

    Maybe I come at it from a different angle, since it doesn't surprise me at all that someone can be the "creator" or at least co-creator of something while farming out the writing to others.

    Yes, according to the writers, in early drafts of Endgame, Wanda was alive, and she and Rocket were assigned to get the Time Stone.

    In hindsight it probably worked out best for her that they...

    True, but Avengers comics were generally not as popular as X-Men comics, and until the 2010s, the X-Men had enormously more presence in film and television.

    So the number of people who knew Wanda...

    Wanda's fans are lucky that the Fox X-Men movies never used Wanda and Pietro as members of the Brotherhood or (until their version of Quicksilver) Magneto's children. If they had asked for Scarlet...

    I'm not sure if Marvel wasn't allowed to use the name -- in all the closing credits of her movies, she's billed as "Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch."

    So they could say it, but they never had a...

    Unfortunately I think the answer is just that it's an MCU production and there has to be a big fight at the end, it's part of the formula.

    They left it ambiguous because it wasn't the point -- they didn't want Wanda to be fighting the villain's plan to take over the world or whatever, because they didn't want there to be a true "Big...

    They made Agatha a villain because the final episode needed a big witch fight. That's really it.
