    To be fair, every series could use more dragons.

    That's messed up.
    Because it was the first issue and it spun right out of "Avengers vs. X-Men" it seemed like it was a deliberate attempt to get readers (many of whom wouldn't normally read an Avengers book) as angry as possible. It doesn't make much sense as characterization, because even if you think the worst of Wanda, what kind of an idiot would she be to make that speech at that time in that place, let alone one page after she was kneeling and weeping at Xavier's grave?

    There is a real thing that this page gets at that is interesting, which is that Wanda was the most prominent post-1961 mutant who never joined the X-Men or one of the other mutant teams. That could be considered a betrayal of her people, or a fulfilment of the dream of mutant acceptance, or both at the same time, but Remender could not do this in a deft way at all, and that was a problem through the whole run. Everyone made their points in the jerkiest way possible.

    Since the end goal of the Resurrection protocols is to bring back all 16 million dead Genoshans, and their secondary goal is to repower the 1 million mutants from M-Day, I'm sure Hickman has a plan to undo M-Day once and for all. Whether that plan succeeds or not is yet to be seen.

    Oh.......I forgot about how that all revolved around the Doom/Life Force retcon. Why didn’t Phoenix repower everyone when she came back for Hope?

    It wasnt intentional on his part but the Rogue/Wanda feud felt very in character. Ofc he expected ppl to side with Wanda and that backfired but that RiRi for u.



    Rogue deserves a statue and a high ranking position in Krakoa government and the fact she has neither is frankly misogynistic.

    Do you have the page of her hugging Wanda, too?


    Wanda helped create a humanelss mutant paradise in that book that Havok destroyed, too lol.

    Remember when Rogue became Wanda's biggest fangirl?

    And then Zub completely ignoring that in his short UA v3 run?

    Yes there is. Back in Children’s Crusade, she repowered Rictor in testing if it was possible. And the reason she wasn’t able to reverse it was because Patriot interrupted the spell causing Wanda to lose the power to do so to Doom.

    I used to be in favor of undoing the re-retcon, but I changed my mind over time. Thanks to House of M, Wanda always brings out the worst in both the X-Men and fans. The less she has to do with any character related to the franchise, the better.

    I already lost patience by then. I was out the minute RiRi killed off Rogue.

    Sometimes I get sad for a writer who has their plot completely derailed and discarded. Remender isn't one of those, but denying his contribution to the funniest moments of mutant related books would be wrong:
    - Wanda going full asshole mode on Rogue at the very first issue
    - Rogue hugging Wanda mentioning that she murdered her, but everything was ok now and basically saying "hug it out, sis, come on!"
    - Wanda and Simon suddenly becoming soulmates after pages of her telling him he's like a brother for her
    - Kluh
    - Low Evolutionary
    - Luminous
    - Havok leading an Avengers squad

    The man had the chops for accidental comedy like nobody else.
