    Thunderbolts omnibus! Finally!

    Busiek's late '90s Marvel stuff was what got me into Marvel comics and led me down the long dark path of Marvel nerddom, so I'm excited to have Thunderbolts (IMO the...

    These questions will not be answered until later this year. They're keeping "WandaVision" very secretive and that includes not letting us know if Vision is alive at the beginning of the series, let...

    OK, now I think they're just baiting fans of the Carol/Wanda friendship by having literally every superheroine in the world be her friend except Wanda.

    A story that is boring for half its length and takes on meaning once you’ve stuck with it long enough is a bad story.

    It's a little hard to say because they haven't been in a comic together in years so we don't know what the relationship even is.

    Yes, it was in Claremont’s run that Carol and Wanda became friends (well, two issues of that run), which is why he had Wanda take the news of the Avengers’ betrayal especially hard.

    Both Ewing and Aaron said on Twitter a few months back (when they already knew of this event) that Wanda didn't figure into their future plans, so I'm not getting my hopes up.

    I wonder if they'll be disappointed when MCU Magneto shows up and he's not Wanda's father. Maybe not - headcanon is always possible, especially in a universe where literally anything can happen.
