    Kurt Busiek and George Perez deserve the credit, just saying.
    Man, that made me feel bad for him. Then again, it took some time for them to credit others, so maybe he could still get credits next episode? Let's hope so.

    It does chaotic things. Which is why, say, Wanda's early hexes were unpredictable -- what she thought of as a "hex" was more like a "chaos grenade."

    If she'd been using magic that was about something else -- force or fire or love or whatever -- her hexes would have had significantly different effects.

    You did an incredible job, very detailed, I always visit it when I’m in the mood for some SW feats, thank you.

    And honestly what is vanilla regular magic anyway? Magic from the school of Vishanti's teaching?
    I think asking how chaos magic is different from regular old magic is like asking how habanero peppers are different from food.

    There is no generic magic, it's a catch-all category that covers all kinds of magic, just as "food" covers all kids of food.

    But just as different foods have different flavors and effects, different kinds of magic do too. There's lots of kinds of magic, which is why it's not easy to master it all. When Dr. Strange calls on the power of the Seraphim, he's calling on a different kind of power than when he casts the crimson bands of Cyttorak, or the flames of the Faltine. It's all different stuff.

    If you want to make a love potion, you probably don't want to make it with chaos magic, just as if you want to make ice cream, you don't use ground beef.

    A lot of the "special thanks" credits are very random. They added Jim Shooter last week and no one knows exactly what story they're crediting him for.

    Unfortunately the origin of "chaos magic" is unfamiliar enough that I haven't seen any news source writing about that particular issue, so it's quite possible that the people making the credits don't even know where it's from. But it's a safe bet that someone on the creative team has read that issue.

    Genuine question ... for what specifically? I know what folks like Bendis, Byrne (who only got recognized in episode 8, I assume for whiteVision), and Englehart did that is reflected in the show. What specific ideas did they pull from Busiek and Perez?

    Wanda's old Hex Power was confusing for some writers, so I get why they gave her regular old magic but I like her more with Hex Power than ordinary magic powers. Felt more interesting and unique. Of course, I'm also glad that Illyanna stayed as a sword-wielding teleporter and not Bendis' Dr. Strange trained sorceress.

    Having Agatha deliver to Wanda that she wields Chaos Magic is from Busiek's run.

    There was a fun Twitter trend today called “You’re Wanda” where you list what your sitcoms would be. The show trends a lot.
