    One of many reasons she needed to be prevented from having children.

    This assumes Wanda appearing in comics regularly, which hasn't happened in a long time (and probably won't happen for even longer now that her next movie has been delayed) so it's all kind of moot.

    Even before that Mighty Avengers story, Strange himself actually calls Wanda's powers "Chaos Magic" in New Avengers #26, written by..... Brian Bendis. I don't think anyone really thought it out.

    I liked that Wanda was the goody-two-shoes who thought Star could be reformed. (Too many writers make her kind of haughty and self-righteous, even Robinson and Zub who both had her lecturing Pietro.)...

    Sounds pretty fake to me. Even on the off chance that they would ever think of giving her her own movie, they would almost certainly want to wait and see how her streaming series does. Plus the whole...

    She confirmed they were the reincarnations of her kids, but that's not exactly the same thing as them being literally her kids. Issue #8 of her solo series lampshaded how hard it is to explain...

    Agreed, anyone is welcome in a character appreciation thread as long as they don't trash the character there. (Trashing them anywhere else is fair game.)

    Oh, I totally understand, but I just think the Avengers title needs romance arcs. That's my big problem with the Roger Stern era - hardly any romance at all. So it made sense to me that we would get...

    I didn't have a problem with Simon being with Wanda in the 1998 run, since I think the Avengers needed a big juicy triangle like that and it was always pretty clear that Simon was not the "real...

    He also was an editor at Marvel, back when editors were almost co-creators.

    Most famously, he edited most of Frank Miller's "Daredevil" run, creating a working relationship that they would...

    It's funny to think how much of Wanda's history as a character is based on that name. If they'd called her "Jinx" she'd have never become a magic character and her powers would have stayed in the...

    I'd like to read the Darkhold mini someday, but it's not really a substitute for getting her back into an ongoing book where she belongs.

    I don't know what it will take though. They didn't have...

    I got my hopes up, but it's just a reprint of random stories with Wanda and Vision in them. It doesn't even have new cover art.

    Oh well, at least the Marvel Team-Up two parter hasn't been...

    I don't think (speaking as a Jewish person) it's the same thing as casting a character who has a consistent ethnicity or set of parents. The idea that Wanda and Pietro are Romani/Jewish...

    I will say this, if Wanda after House of M had been the star of a story arc about how everyone hated her, I'd have been overjoyed as a Wanda fan. Instead she wasn't in anything for years.

    That...

    It was also a complete pain for any other artist to draw because of all the folds of clothing: it's both too skimpy and too complicated.

    That's actually why it was abandoned after George Pérez...

    Gotta agree with Ferro on this one. There have been many attempts to turn Wanda and Pietro into positive representation, most recently Pietro's miniseries. It never works. They never had that...

    I really wish the Jean/Wanda backup stories from X-Men First Class (by Jeff Parker and Colleen Coover) had gotten its own comic. They were probably the best Wanda-centric content in the 2000s, not...

    Isn't this just the individual character equivalent of another perpetual topic, "Why are mutants hated more than people who got their powers by accident?"

    The character who supports "Minority Report" style tactics always comes off as a fascist. It doesn't matter if they are or not, it's just built into the DNA of this kind of story.

    This was the first event I can recall where tie-in books openly made fun of how pointless it was. The Scarlet Witch tie-in issue was just 20 pages of her talking about how stupid this event sounded...

    That Bendis issue of "All-New X-Men" with the Uncanny Avengers I think kind of summed up Wanda's presence in the X-Men books post-AvX. The teen X-Men are horrified to learn about the Decimation and...
