    Whatever Priest had planned for Steve and Wanda, it couldn't possibly have been worse than Wanda's romance with Wonder Man in "Uncanny Avengers," which ignored the way their affair ended in Busiek's run and made it out like Simon had alwyas been Wanda's true love. And even if it hadn't contradicted the earlier story, it still wasn't a well-written romance.

    Tom Brevoort has been pretty open about not wanting Wanda and Vision to be back together, and he has a weakness for bringing up old, abandoned plot points from the Silver Age. (Wanda and Pietro being revealed as experiments of the High Evolutionary, and not mutants, is based on one throwaway page in a Lee/Kirby Thor story.) So I can see why he greenlit the idea of Wanda's crush on Cap being brought up again, but the fact is, no Avengers writer ever mentioned it once Stan Lee left the book.

    People don't know if the name is Trial, they only read it against a blackout. Anyway I don't want Leah Williams writing Wanda.
    Also makes no sense the story be on a book, before being on another,

    I don't think it is desperate, much the contrary. Sometimes people know each other for a long time and then fall in love.

    I was talking either story being about Wanda. The trial could also be about Mystique and Destiny.

    By desperate I mean the idea of these characters constantly needing hook ups. And I just generally prefer them all staying friends

    Switching gears, it would be interesting to see Wanda go up against the Enchantress, her rival from the early Avengers days. I think Amora would be quite surprised at Wanda can do today!
    Amora should be her rival again and even be her Rival in the MCU, that Be EPIC and to Finally help bring Amora into the MCU that has been criminal that she is not apart of the MCU yet!

    I keep wanting Jean and Wanda to have more interactions with each other in the comics, the similiarities between the 2 is stricking and they be very intersting for a good writer to writing what they say to each other and get along!

    That is such an interesting Concept to think about, that since Family is Important to Wanda and Pietro so much and the FF it is SO Important to the the dynamic if they joined would be stagering in story and development!

    It be a great limited What If Concept for a book and another great concept would have been with Wanda being exploring the world of Magic is Agatha while Reed with thw world of science and how that dynamic would have worked out too.

    Exciting ideas of what could have been IMO!

Since then I've been imagining What If?'s where Wanda and Pietro joined the FF, or subbed for charter members on leave, instead of joining the Avengers (initially at least; they could join much later on).

    And, here's something that CBR's FB page reposted from Reddit:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/marvelmemes...tha_all_along/

    It is Great Hearing such memories you had Ravin' Ray of Strange Tales, reading them and sharing them with us here on the thread, that is Awesome to read, Thanks!

    Also, that is WAYYYYY to much of a Strange Coincident for that to have happen with the Agatha Name and the Olsens, Life is Truly much more stranger and unique in what happens then anything in Fiction!

    Probably just as well that it didn't happen, because it was better for Agatha to be Wanda's sole mentor (even if they made her a villainous one). But the commercials really don't make sense if we think of them as coming from Wanda, especially the "Yo Magic" one, which is warning her about something she doesn't even know about.

    The show left a lot of plot holes, and they can't all be blamed on COVID.
    The article makes clear this was abandoned before the show was made, so that was not the intention of the commercials.

    The twins not being mutants was also brought up in the early avengers books (Avengers Vol 1 #30)when Wanda wonders if she is actually a mutant given her powers seemed to be weakening since she was faraway from her homeland. It was the reason they left the team after ther the Kooky Quartet.

    It's not quite clear from the Rolling Stone article, which says this: "Marvel actually struck a deal with Benedict Cumberbatch to appear as Dr. Strange in the final episode of WandaVision, but wrote him out late in the process. (Originally, the in-universe commercials were intended as messages from Strange to Wanda.)"

    That makes it sound like they were into filming, or at least finalizing the scripts, before they changed it.
