    My own interpretation is that if her show hadn't been so successful they would have simply benched her until her kids were ready to look for her, like in the comics.

    Even if she gets that solo...

    It's honestly hard to define what a high-stakes or low-stakes story is. Spider-Man: No Way Home was really kind of a small-scale, personal story that felt big because it pulled in characters from...

    As late as the early '90s they still had to give some semi-scientific "probability" explanation for what Wanda was doing, because they couldn't just say she was using magic.

    That's not really a...

    There's a bit of a difference, though. Blade and Storm were specifically written as black characters in a mostly-white cast, and that was important to the way they were written. Many characters...

    Stories like that are why Busiek's retcon of Wanda's powers -- that she was using magic all along and didn't know it -- worked so well. She's constantly doing stuff, without even knowing how, that...

    The Grey's Anatomy character named Teddy Altman...

    The Grey's Anatomy character named Teddy Altman first appeared in 2009, so whether or not it was Heinberg's idea, the name must have been a shout-out to Young Avengers.
  7. Yeah, if it had only been "Avengers Disassembled"...

    Yeah, if it had only been "Avengers Disassembled" she would have made her recovery pretty easy. She killed three heroes and blew up a mansion and that's nothing in superhero-land.

    But "no more...

    The seven-year contract was a fake news item; apparently they don't do those long term contracts any more. However, credible sources have claimed that a solo "Scarlet Witch" project is in the works,...

    Agreed. Some people took the "you break the rules and become the hero..." line seriously when it's just a standard villain line, pretending they're no worse than the hero when they clearly are.

    One thing that usually keeps powerful heroes in check is they're trying not to kill their opponent while their opponent is trying to kill them. It obviously puts them at a disadvantage.

    That's...
  11. The unusual thing about Wanda is that she is...

    The unusual thing about Wanda is that she is almost always a hero in the comics, but there are a very tiny few stories where she's the villain, and somehow they've overshadowed her entire comics...
  12. Poll: I used to say Feige isn't as bad as the comics...

    I used to say Feige isn't as bad as the comics editors and when he adapts a comic story, he usually changes it to avoid character assassination.

    But as with so many other things, Wanda is the...
  13. There's no such thing as a character who is too...

    There's no such thing as a character who is too powerful to use, because every writer makes up their power levels based on what the story requires. How does Superman be part of a team? How can Batman...
  14. Poll: In "WandaVision," it seems obvious that she's...

    In "WandaVision," it seems obvious that she's using the Darkhold because it's the only source of information on how to control her powers (and no one mentions it's known for corrupting people, just...

    She mentioned in a couple of interviews that she's seen the images of Wanda aging herself by using her powers, and that she'd love to play Wanda looking old. If you think about it, that's one of the...

    You know, I like Robinson's Scarlet Witch series more than I did at the time, and not just because we've had so little of her in comics since then. The new parent retcon was bad and so was the...

    If they wanted her to be a Magneto type of villain then they would have done the story the tag scene of "WandaVision" sets up, where she thinks her children are in danger and will do anything to get...

    Also because she stops on her own, they can say they avoided the trope of the crazy woman who needs a man to stop her. There are a lot of things they put in to deflect accusations of sexism, like the...

    I don't really care about feats. And many of the moments I like best with Wanda, or any other character, is when they take on someone more powerful than them and win anyway, by using their powers...

    I remember when the full plot leaked last summer, even people who believed the Wanda part found it unbelievable that Strange would do so little in his own movie. Because from the plot, it seemed like...

    That's just the writer's decision, though. Even if you assume Wanda is more powerful than Strange -- hard to believe since she uses such a limited power set in this movie -- he could go up against...

    It's just Wanda's rotten luck that the MCU breaks from the formula by making the audience expect a team-up and never giving it to them, so anyone who wanted to see her team up with Doctor Strange...

    That's probably why. In WandaVision there was a controversy because you could really argue about how bad she was.

    The movie... everyone admits she does terrible things and even people who hate her...

    It's doing good, not as good as the most popular MCU movies, but not as bad as the least popular (which I guess would be Eternals), and it also hasn't had any other blockbusters to compete with for...

    It's been said many times, but: this movie's story was mostly developed before Sam Raimi even knew WandaVision existed, and most everything in "WandaVision" is either not mentioned or contradicted.
