    It's a bit of a meta line, though. Because while we haven't seen all that many stories about Erik as the father of the twins, we have seen a number of them, and they were considered to be his...
  2. They shouldn't be retconning her origin again,...

    They shouldn't be retconning her origin again, ever. The S.W.O.R.D. scene didn't even require it. Magneto just says, well, you may not be my biological daughter but I still think of you as my...

    Well, maybe she knew she could easily handle anyone who tried to attack her.

    Of course that will seem ironic if it turns out this really is a "who killed the Scarlet Witch?" story.
  4. At least the S.W.O.R.D. scene sort of has a...

    At least the S.W.O.R.D. scene sort of has a reason: he appears to be the only person on Krakoa who pushed back against the "Pretender" thing, first by inviting her to the Gala and then by being nice...

    I know it's mostly an online joke, but I wouldn't mind a writer actually addressing the fact that Magneto cares more about Wanda even though Lorna is right there. Like what does the poor woman have...

    This thread is full of people who a) really really really don't like "House of M", and b) are really really really annoyed that she hasn't been in any comics except as a punching bag in the X-Men...

    That is definitely what I expect, unfortunately. She gets killed for shock value, immediately brought back in some form.


    The only bright spot would be if Ewing is involved in writing more of...
  8. Yes, that's where I stand too. I thought it was a...

    Yes, that's where I stand too. I thought it was a nice scene, and I don't think there's anything wrong with saying that Magneto was her father for long enough that they are still "related" in that...
  9. It's not a fad, but it does wax and wane. I think...

    It's not a fad, but it does wax and wane. I think Marvel comics in the '80s were more concerned about diversity and gender balance than the '90s. Things can go backwards as well as forwards.

    That sounds ominous. I remember what happened last time she made a surprise appearance in the X-Books (the "Genosha Zombies" nonsense last year).
  11. Have a great time, CJ!

    Have a great time, CJ!
  12. I just want her to be in an ongoing comic story...

    I just want her to be in an ongoing comic story of some kind, preferably in the Avengers, but I'll take anything at this point.
  13. Which is fine. But I think "Princess Bride" is a...

    Which is fine. But I think "Princess Bride" is a good comparison for how I see Marvel and DC superhero comics. The story is deliberately silly and so are the characters, but we still care about them...
  14. It depends on the writer. Some stories have said...

    It depends on the writer. Some stories have said she could always do it, others said that she tapped into some sort of power source called "The Life Force" and when she lost it, she lost the reality...
  15. Wanda's powers have always been vaguely defined...

    Wanda's powers have always been vaguely defined and change definition with every single writer. I don't think it matters. Power limits are arbitrary and plot-driven, and it's the writer's job to give...
  16. No one really knows, but best guess is that she's...

    No one really knows, but best guess is that she's part of the classic old-school Avengers cast, and they haven't done a book like that since Remender's "Uncanny Avengers."

    Most writers who like...

    It's part of Wanda's weird luck that Marvel comics stopped doing aggressive MCU synergy right around the time when it would have helped her.
  18. No, it's not weird, though I don't feel the same...

    No, it's not weird, though I don't feel the same way.

    I feel like "Uncanny Avengers" fumbled the chance for that romance to work by just acting like Wanda and Simon had always been each other's...
  19. Simon's the Kenny of the Marvel universe. The...

    Simon's the Kenny of the Marvel universe. The dude died in his very first story and has kept on dying and coming back since then -- he died at least twice in Remender's "Uncanny Avengers" alone. But...
  20. When characters lose their parents (or uncles) it...

    When characters lose their parents (or uncles) it seems like even in the superhero world, they're more likely to stay dead. MCU Wanda's parents ain't never coming back, and in the comics, no one ever...
  21. This is where I stand too -- my problem is not...

    This is where I stand too -- my problem is not what they made her do but that they ended the show without her getting a chance to make up for it or become a better person. The ending showed that she...
  22. Yes. And Schaeffer's interviews made it sound...

    Yes. And Schaeffer's interviews made it sound like she didn't think Wanda felt particularly guilty for what she'd done, and that is reflected in the show. It's not that she wants to hurt people, it's...
  23. I think it was the right decision for the Hex to...

    I think it was the right decision for the Hex to be her (accidental) doing instead of having someone else manipulate her into doing it. The criticism is more that at the end she hadn't really learned...
  24. Yes, but some fans (like me) interpreted that as...

    Yes, but some fans (like me) interpreted that as them saying they were going to avoid making Wanda turn bad like in Avengers Disassembled/House of M, and that didn’t happen. She still lost control of...
  25. It was literally true, but got our hopes too high...

    It was literally true, but got our hopes too high for how they would treat her. Someone said that the show avoided "grief makes you crazy" and leaned instead into "grief makes you selfish and...
