    Interesting. Perhaps the more powerful the spell, the greater chance of backfiring or causing unintended chaos

    I disagree with backfiring still being in Wanda's power set. Her whole reason for going through learning traditional magic was to control her natural abilities. Having it just revert to random chance at backfiring is a reversal of that growth she got.

Who got to decide that Strange's magic in the MCU is masculine? He was taught everything that he knows by a woman (Ancient One). So her magic is strictly masculine just because his is? And what does that mean for Billy's magic when he inherited powers from Wanda, but he's not female? Where does his magic fall on the spectrum? And what about a character like Loki, who's something in-between male and female... where would that magic fall on the spectrum of masculinity/femininity? If the answer is ''the writers didn't think about that'', then maybe they shouldn't be assigning arbitrary labels to something so complex like magic to begin with.
    It's really applying gender where it's not necessary.

    yeah Wanda it's not a novice, her magical training ended almost 20 or more years ago, just because certain writers want to use her as a plot device, the backfiring spells was a thing when she couldn't control her hex and got trained by Agatha in witchcraf

    she's currently teaching magic to kinds in the strange academy...

    Yeah cause In the early comics her hex would backfire, though at the time it wasn’t called chaos magic, it wasn’t something catastrophic. Her being confirmed in comics as the only being in the entire universe who can wield and control it at full capacity would show just how well skilled of a witch she is to control it.

    I should have worded it better. I was trying to say that anyone else besides Wanda using chaos magic would cause the spells to backfire and cause calamity. I meant to say that the magic itself is dangerous and that Wanda is the only one with the expertise and knowledge to use it.

    I see. Hopefully she gains that level of control in MoM

    Hank never romanced the Black Widow.

    I enjoyed seeing the enlarged team with Hank and Jan.

    About the pencil twirled in the air at Jan (whom I believe was wearing an orange, blue and white new costume) was done again many years later but directed at both Hank and Jan by the villain Graviton.
    Yes, it was an odd, but pleasing color outfit for Jan. The dramatic fingers movement or whatever of Mags and the way Jan was struck down was a compelling image for my 12 year old or so self. I sort of remember the Graviton; do you know who was the artist and when/where about?
