    She's more a failed singer than a failed dancer.

    All Wanda needs is editors who tell other editors that there are limits to what they can do with her. If after House of M the X-Men editors had been told: "hey, we may want to bring back the Scarlet...

    You know what would be funny, I've been speculating that if Hickman's inevitable Krakoa vs. the Marvel Universe event comes along, it seems almost inevitable that Wanda would wind up fighting on the...

    Yes, I'll say that while Wanda's role in the two "No..." weekly Avengers series is not large (except for one issue in "No Road Home" where she meets Conan the Barbarian) she's well written in both of...

    Probably Kurt Busiek. That Avengers run ended in 2002 with an epilogue in JLA/Avengers in 2003-4 where she has a large role. Then Avengers Disassembled/House of M happened and the character has never...

    I still don’t get the idea of talking about a shared character as if they’re stupid or bad when a writer has them

    Hickman doesn’t pay attention to what happens in other books (and I’m not saying he should). For him Strange = competent smart daddy figure and Wanda = dumb amateur.

    Can Wanda take out a restraining order against X-Men writers?

    Then again she’s not the first hero Hickman has portrayed as an incompetent idiot (being talked down to repeatedly by a hero Hickman...

    I wish I could say it surprises me that they would leave her out of an event full of characters connected to her (Empyre) and use her in a throwaway scene in a minor X-Men comic to screw up and...
  10. Poll: Agreed, that's why it was disappointing that that...

    Agreed, that's why it was disappointing that that scene of her being remorseful and wanting to fix things wound up just being an excuse to have her screw up and (and this is worse than screwing up)...
  11. Poll: I'm glad I don't hate any character enough to...

    I'm glad I don't hate any character enough to feel that way. Wanda's fans have been waiting like 15 years to see her stop getting used as a plot device and then forgotten about.
  12. Poll: I think it's a real stretch to argue that any...

    I think it's a real stretch to argue that any hero, or even most villains, have done worse than Wanda. Hal Jordan, I guess.

    Which is kind of the point. The writers made her do something that would...

    This is also why Wanda's actions get more scrutiny than a lot of out-and-out villains. Magneto has tried to commit mass murder multiple times, but he got stopped (including by Pietro and Wanda in...
  14. Poll: Yes, I agree with that. I don't think Wanda being...

    Yes, I agree with that. I don't think Wanda being a well-intentioned screwup is alien to her character, even though I'd prefer if she wasn't written that way, I accept that it is something she might...
  15. Poll: That just goes to show how badly Wanda was...

    That just goes to show how badly Wanda was treated by writers, who seemed to want her to be ruined as a hero. Whereas (again) the writers protected Cyclops by showing clearly that killing Xavier was...
  16. Poll: Which brings us back to the fact that if Wanda...

    Which brings us back to the fact that if Wanda was guilty of "No More Mutants" then she can never be a hero again, not so much because of what happened in House of M, but the years of misery and...

    One point, though: there are two versions of this scene. The one you've posted is the one from the trades, where Heinberg rewrote a lot of the dialogue. In the original floppy version, Wanda doesn't...
  18. Poll: I don't see the problem with retconning Wanda's...

    I don't see the problem with retconning Wanda's actions to be the act of a villain controlling or manipulating her. That's what they usually do with heroes who turn bad for no good reason. The only...

    A writer who elevates the X-characters while constantly crapping on Avengers characters does seem, from a certain point of view, to be ideal.

    It's sort of like how in spite of its many flaws, I...

    Children's Crusade was very vague about what happened. It provided an explanation for why she was so powerful in HoM - something called the "Life Force," which Doom then stole from her, making it...
  21. Poll: No amount of shade the X-Books have thrown at...

    No amount of shade the X-Books have thrown at Wanda under Hickman can ever match Mike Carey's impulse to crap on Wanda. "Endangered Species" was just page after page showing that Wanda was evil and...

    Yes, and I think this was the first Marvel comic (probably not the first comic) to use the story of Alternate Reality versions of the heroes who become authoritarian fascists.

    I always found it amazing that Bob Harras lasted so long as DC Editor-in-Chief, when he lasted such a short time as Marvel Editor-in-Chief. If he is among the layoffs it's not surprising (though...

    The simplest solution there is just that Natalya is Magda, and while that's preposterous and makes no sense, the same goes for every other backstory the twins have had so far.

    I don't think that's really the case - he was a bad/crazy guy in X-Factor for a little while, then he suddenly became good again, and he got away with lying to the Avengers and the world by saying...
