    Oh, I totally get that it isn't a straight line. That's why we're talking about one of the few MCU movies where it really is a straight line -- I mean they called it The Winter Soldier and invited...

    These are things they would have to work out if they had a policy of compensating the creators of the Marvel stories they adapt. After the policy comes a bunch of lawyers and discussions and rules...

    This is the kind of grey area movies and TV deal with all the time. When is something just "inspired by" or "influenced by" a work from another medium, and when do they actually need to pay the...

    Any rumor that includes Mephisto at this point I just dismiss as fake.
  5. But we all know where thety got the idea of Jane...

    But we all know where thety got the idea of Jane Foster as Thor. The MCU doesn't try to hide which comics they look to for inspiration. "Bucky is alive" is an idea they could have gotten on their...

    I love your optimism, CJ. And we won't really know about Wanda's MCU future until the movie, and maybe even after. It might be good and bad at the same time, like the place the show left her in was...

    Me too. But that'll probably happen later. The MCU is kind of dark and bleak after Endgame, but that's to set up things getting better.

    I wish I could be confident that Wanda will be part of that.
  8. If that description turns out to be true, then...

    If that description turns out to be true, then that may actually make it more likely that Wanda is going to screw up again. It really does seem like the theme of the MCU lately is that the heroes...

    She'd be an anti-hero, someone who does bad things for understandable or sympathetic reasons, like getting her children back. Anti-heroes are popular and this phase of the MCU seems to be heavier on...

    While the answer is deliberately vague, one of the more accurate scoopers, Charles Murphy, was answering questions on Twitter today and said "yes" when asked "any hopes on Wanda as a villain?", and...

    A bit of both. For most of her comics existence, Wanda's "hex power" was defined as the mutant ability to alter probability, but she also learned real magic and sometimes used that.

    In 1998, to...

    So many writers didn't want "chaos magic" to be a thing, but it persevered.
  13. The head writer of WandaVision...

    The head writer of WandaVision described Strange's magic as "more of a masculine magic not at all aligned with Salem and our sort of Americanized version and feminized version of witches and magic....
  14. I think if the MCU took a comics story and gave...

    I think if the MCU took a comics story and gave it to a different character, it would still be using that creator's work. The MCU adaptations are of course very different from the comics stories, but...
  15. The fact is that the comics provide a lot of...

    The fact is that the comics provide a lot of story ideas for the MCU, and the people who create these stories don't have any right to be rewarded for this, unlike the screenwriters who adapt their...

    I'd say it's turning Marvel Girl into Phoenix. That decision early on, to give an established hero a cosmic-level power-up, is probably the biggest source of story material for the entire franchise,...

    I don't even get why people care about sales. If it were selling terribly (or at least worse than a replacement would sell), he wouldn't still be writing it. More importantly, if you like or dislike...

    Well, Wanda and Strange have never even shared a scene in the MCU yet, so we can only speculate on their relationship or the differences between his approach to magic and hers.

    What little we...
  19. Wanda's powers have been "whatever the plot...

    Wanda's powers have been "whatever the plot requires" since 1964, so I think most people in a Scarlet Witch thread are kind of resigned to a lack of rules, limitations and internal consistency.

    Well, according to the MCU, no one knew she was a mystical character until Agatha sensed that big magic outburst in Westview. Everyone, presumably including Strange, thought her powers were not...

    At this point I think it would be easier to make a list of Avengers who shouldn't be in jail.

    Agreed, though it does seem more and more like this whole phase of the MCU is based around the idea that it's a more complicated world now that the original heroes are mostly gone, and everything is...

    Kirby and Ditko didn't have the prettiest art in the business, but it didn't matter -- they were brilliant storytellers and were great at generating plots and characters (both character designs and...

    I've always liked some of Marvel/Timely's humor comics, particularly "Millie the Model" and "Patsy Walker." They reveal Lee to be not quite in the top tier of scriptwriters, like Frank Doyle at...
