    Default Should Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) stand trial for House of M ?.

    Should Scarlet Witch stand trial for her House of M actions ?
    Though House of M happened 15 years ago many mutants lost their birthgiven powers and were made human due to this event.
    Now that Krakoa is recognised as a nation is it time for mutants to pass judgement on one of the most tragic events in mutant history.
    How will the quiet Council of Krakoa judge Wandas actions during House of M ?.
    It will be interesting Magnetos' stance towards Wanda now that she isn't his daughter due to the Uncanny Avengers Vol 2 Retcon.
    Will the retcon stay or will they return Wanda and Pietro to being mutants.
    I enjoy anything Marvel cosmic, especially Thanos or Dark Phoenix related, loved the original Uncanny Avengers series.

    No, it's way too late for any of that. Any trial, villain arc or redemption should have happened when she returned after Children's Crusade. Anything now is too long after the fact.

    Krakoa has just become a Nation, a Nation of Mutants, alot of mutants had their powers taken away some still don't have their powers, powers that were their birth right.
    At the time Wanda was regarded as an mutant and as this is a crime against mutants she should be trialled and judged under Krakoan law.

    And just because Krakoa is a thing doesn't change anything. This was already gone over in AvX. Marvel decided not to go through with it. They instead put her on UA. Krakoa (like other mutant utopias) won't even stick around. The time to try Wanda was ten years ago out of story and sometime ago before a lot of other events in comics. Them leaving her alone after AvX to only do this again, would be just repetitive.

    Apocalypse, Sinister, Jean...etc. All have committed crimes against mutantdom. Under their laws they have been absolved. If she is/was considered a mutant then they wouldn't put her under trial and if she isn't they don't have a right to put her under trial at all. So...she's water and they're a bridge.

    Wanda should be back on the Avengers roster where she belongs. Then if they want to do an X-Men crossover, knock themselves out. But as things currently stand in the comics, Doom was responsible for M-Day (an explanation that has holes but not as many holes as Wanda being responsible) and most of the X-Men have indicated by word or deed that they have no interest in treating her as an enemy.

    So I guess the answer is "yes if it's a story about Wanda" and "no if it's a story about M-day, which nobody cares about any more."

    It's Krakatoa so them being hypocrites about her wouldn't be out of character. Didn't Xavier himself nickname her "the Pretender" after M-Day?

    In last weeks X-Men# 7 House of M and the Scarlet Witch were mentioned like an historic/horrific event, a mutant Melody, who had lost her powers during House of M had to to get them back by taking part in the Crucible.
    Would mutant children also have to go take part in the Crucible to get their powers back ?.

    Wanda never lost her powers. Her powers are linked to Chthon. Her mutant abilities were just energy wielding. She lost the life force in Children's Crusade, so she can't repower them. Mutants are working on their own way to repower themselves though.

    Would mutant children also have to go through the same process to get their powers back ?.
    I don't know what that has to do with Wanda, until/unless she actually comes into the story and gets a chance to speak up for herself.

    Otherwise it's just a story about mutant villains using a biased story, pretending that a hero is actually a villain, as a tool to scare children and unite them around a common enemy. It's not a bad story but it has nothing to do with Wanda as a character, since the character they're describing is not the one from the actual comics.

    That's got immense story potential for another Avengers/X-men conflict.

    The first one turned out awful, so no thanks.

    Only if they add her to the Avengers, though, which they've shown no sign of doing.

    The Crucible is a very brutal way to have to go through to get their mutant powers back, this Wanda is responsible for.
    Many crimes have been brought back to the surface after many years in limbo.
    I hope Hickman covers this in future storylines.

    Well getting it back via Life Force might not have been any better. We only got to see Riktor repowered. So we have no idea how that could've gone for others.
