    Well, you'll notice her telepathic powers have never been mentioned or used after Age of Ultron. The new team that took over decided they didn't like those powers (understandably, she didn't have...

    In theory, probability powers are cool because they should allow writers to come up with creative explanations for how they are used. In practice, this almost never happened. Almost everything Wanda...

    That site passes on a lot of baseless speculation and their “source” is a random YouTube channel. Don’t get your hopes up until a better source comes along.

    Remender in "Uncanny Avengers" was using the idea that Wanda is sort of a living battery and that the more energy she has access to, the more magic she can do. This is sort of how her powers worked...

    Actually Jim Zub has stated many times that Wanda is one of his favorite characters, but she hasn't been in anything he's written since No Surrender. So it's not just about writers not wanting to use...

    Sigh. It's so ridiculous that she should go completely unused for what will soon be a year. At least in the '00s you knew why they weren't using her.

    I didn't like Thor: Ragnarok for the same reasons (also: massive amounts of exposition all the time) but I do think it was a better-executed campy goofball take than B&R was.

    2021 will be a test of how much MCU promotion the Scarlet Witch needs to get before they put her back on the main Avengers team. If they never do it then literally nothing short of your own movie...

    Black Widow has a movie next year, which by Aaron’s lights means she has a right to be on the Avengers, unlike losers such as Wasp or Scarlet Witch.

    To change the subject a little, one thing I wonder about the series is whether they might pull the idea of Wanda's mother being a witch from her comic series (they wouldn't use Natalya of course, it...
