    I think a lot of the distance started when Claremont became too busy with X-Men and its spinoffs to write other books, and the editors mostly concentrated on the X-titles. Writers and editors usually...

    The one thing that puzzles me is that Zub has repeatedly said he wants to write her, and of course he set up that whole Dr. Voodoo romance that has never actually been explored.

    However that could...

    Similar, but (again according to the retcon) Wanda and Pietro didn't choose to become/resemble mutants, they lived lives exactly like any other mutant, with their powers emerging as they got older,...

    What I meant was more that there may have been conflict about what story to put them in. If Bleeding Cool's rumor is correct then there could have been plans to save them for a story where they...

    If they have a mutant DNA signature and are considered mutants by every test for mutant-ness and every spell that affects mutants, I think they're mutants. That's why the idea of them not being...

    Jordan White was asked about this on Twitter and he said Wanda and Pietro are "Still not mutants."

    I.e. they're not in Hickman's X-books because they're not considered mutants any more, and for...

    This is why the only mutant who got repowered was Rictor. He was in X-Factor at the time, and that book was almost completely cut off from the rest of the line, so all Allan Heinberg had to do was...

    In my opinion this goes at least as far back as the Bob Harras era, when he decided that the space-travel aspects of the X-Men, like the Shi'ar, didn't belong in the X-Men and moved them over to the...

    Most books pretty much ignored Hickman's Avengers right up until Secret Wars, and vice versa, even when writing about characters who were in Hickman's lineup. I doubt it'll be very different when...

    I'm glad you're glad, but obviously that doesn't make me find the lineup any less boring.

    And anyway the problem is that they're not giving homes to under-used characters; that's why some core...

    I think an Amora fan would have more reason to be depressed, since she's always been kind of underused right from the beginning. Wanda has been a regular more often (it helps to be a hero rather than...
