    Maybe someone (not me, though) should post a poll asking users

    a) if they think Wanda will play a part in this story

    Out-of-universe it's really just because she and her brother were the first mutants ever to be moved out of the X-Men and into another book (Avengers). Because she became such a mainstay of the...

    I think it seemed like after AvX she was a big presence in the comics again for a few months, then Uncanny Avengers turned into this weird alternate-reality thing that was completely separate from...

    We've got a whole Eternals movie coming up before WandaVision and there has barely been a peep in the comics. I'm sure there will be something for them and something for Wanda a little later, but it...

    Seriously, though, I would love for them to have done a story after Children's Crusade where she makes up for what she did (or at least was the vessel for) and gets forgiveness or at least starts to....

    Wanda was an out-and-proud mutant when the X-Men were government stooges hiding their mutant identity from the world, try again.

    Unfortunately Hickman is such a slow writer (in terms of building up to stories) that if these Wanda-bashing references are leading up to anything it may not be for a long time. Maybe even after the...

    I'm actually curious, would you stop liking a character if a writer gave them a really bad line of dialogue?
