    I've noticed that Wanda threads can be a little negative sometimes. I certainly was earlier today. I think it's just that people who love the character have been traumatized by how much crap she's...

    True. Remember toward the end of 2019, as "WandaVision" was getting ready to start filming, he was told Nightmare would be the villain of WandaVision?

    I kind of wish the show had had an actual...

    Sorry, my original post had another one of those stupid MCU rumors in it. I shouldn't be doing that. It's bad enough to post real spoilers, but spoilers from the people who said Nightmare would be...

    I may be clinging to any hope, but maybe the fact that Feige let What If do "scary psycho killer Wanda" means they're not planning to do it in a movie. I have to take hope where I can find it.

    This must be what Elizabeth Olsen was referring to when she said they originally wanted a more realistic look for her Halloween costume and she preferred to wear the classic Scarlet Witch outfit...

    I have no idea what I'm looking at.

    But if the plan really is to restore Wanda and Pietro's mutant status then both of them would have to "die" at some point, so I've always assumed Pietro would...

    Yeah, I hate it when comics tear Pietro down to build Wanda up. It doesn't happen all that often, to be fair, but Steve Englehart wrote Wanda for a long time and always portrayed Pietro that way, and...

    It also seems to be a thing at Marvel editorial to recycle the names of old stories. I believe Leah Williams has said that the title "The Trial of Magneto" was not her idea.

    It's weird how hard the story is leaning on the characters being suspicious of Magneto, even though we have been given literally no reason to believe he would have committed the murder, even without...

    It's just more dynamic to have her fighting while moving. Sometimes in the comics she'll just stand around and point at stuff, because Lee and Kirby gave their early heroines powers that wouldn't...

    As I understand it, though, some version of this story predates the production of "WandaVision," or at least Bleeding Cool reported in 2019 that a Scarlet Witch/Magneto/Quicksilver story for the...

    I don't have a problem with the way Bendis wrote Wanda in "All New X-Men." It was much better than how Remender was writing her at the same time. Of course Teen Jean is upset that the Avengers let...

    Well, he did use his magnetic powers to have her shot in the head.

    I just read Avengers Annual 10 again, and it's a sign of how separate the Avengers franchise was from the X-Men that even with Chris Claremont writing and editing the comic, and with the Brotherhood...

    It would be funny if they believed the rumors that Mephisto was going to be in the MCU and built him up for nothing.

    Not to the crowd that loves Scarlet Witch and Vision he's not.

    MCU synergy used to be much greater than it is now -- Nick Fury Jr; Hickman basically was told he had to use everyone from the MCU...

    What's with Cebulski and using the titles of old stories for no reason? "Trial of Magneto" isn't about the trial of Magneto, "Avengers Forever" has nothing to do with "Avengers Forever," etc. I...

    I don't think that's fair, but I do think that when a character becomes popular in the movies it influences the way writers write them.

    Before this year Wanda never had enough screen time in the...

    I hope it's really Strange because I'll feel better about Wanda's future if she and Strange have both screwed up massively, instead of just Wanda.

    It's just part of a broader problem that Wanda is part of a group of characters who were core to the old-school Avengers, and who don't really have a home now that the Avengers is more of an all-star...

    For now, yes, but her MCU portrayal is still influenced enough by Avengers Disassembled/House of M that I would be nervous even if we weren't getting all the "villain Wanda" rumors. Comics Wanda was...

    I am going to hold out hope that we haven't yet started to see the effect of WandaVision's success on Wanda in the comics.

    Come to think of it, even though the story was planned before, we did...

    I voted Diablo because of the callback to the way John Byrne's run started and because I approve of Feige's Spider-Man policy of starting with villains who haven't been used in a movie before.

    The "villain Wanda" thing has been out there for a while but the same people saying she brings the X-Men over were saying that about WandaVision. They were the same people saying Evan Peters was...
