    Cool Scarlet Witch Appreciation

    And There Came a Day Unlike Any Other, when The Avenger: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Recruited 2 New Members to their Ranks, The 1st 2 Mutants to Join the One Day to become Legendary Team.

    One of them was a Young Lady that went by the Name of:





    Wanda Maximoff,
    The Scarlet Witch



    http://adamhughes.deviantart.com/art...Witch-91410408




    "Wanda Maximoff was a Women Born of Destiny and Hardship, Powers of both of the Physical and Mystical Worlds. Born Near the Mystical Wundagore Mountain, part of a Band of Gypsy’s with her Twin Brother Pietro and a life of Poverty. Both Born as Mutants, The Twins where almost killed by a mob when Magento saved them and then the Twins joined Magneto's Brotherhood, but only until their depth was paid to him. Once Free, they moved to the U.S., putting their powers for the use of Good as the 1st Mutant Members of the World Famous Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!

    In Time, Wanda become one of the Most Dedicated and Loved members of the Avengers. Fighting along side the worlds Greatest Heroes, Wanda’s Powers and Will lead to Victories over Threats like Ultron, Kang, Loki, Enchantress, The Serpent Crown, Thanos, Onslaught, Morgan Le Fey, The Red Zone Plague and Many More! Wanda would go on to Marry the Synthetic Human Vision and start a family, only to lose them a some time later.

    Wanda would also face more tragedy when it was believed she lost control, which lead to the Event stories of Avengers: Dissembles and House of M. However, since then, it was revealed Wanda was under the manipulation of Dr. Doom and Possessed by a Cosmic Entity known as The Life Force. This was found out by her Newly Resurrected Children, Wiccan and Speed of the Young Avengers!

    Since Her Return, Wanda has Pledge to make the World better for Mutants, being a Critical part in both the Children’s Crusade Arc, Avengers vs. X-Men and now as a Founding-Member of the Unity Team in the Uncanny Avengers."





    Wanda Maximoff Embodies the Ideals of Hardship, Will
    & Love!

    Tbh considering Wanda is still banned from Marvel games and stuff because of FOX even when she's only on the MCU, I don't think it would make any difference. If she was being promoted on the same level of other MCU prominent characters I would never want this to happen, but on the current situation it would be interesting to see the same character adapted in probably completely different ways.

    Well, personally I'd rather Marvel and Fox keep the way it is now. Once Fox uses Wanda in their movie, that ban will went from "maybe" to a "never". I am not saying I am content with her current status, it's just Fox's involvment may make the condition more awkward.
    Wanda's situation did improve a bit after being introduced into the MCU, can't say the same to Pietro though.

    We have seen that making a fascist out of a Jewish-created icon of the American dream and democratic ideal — and uniting him with a group that aligns itself with Nazis — has caused a great deal of upset. We saw*some similar backlash to Wanda’s inclusion in Hydra in the first issue. And the image of a now-fascist Captain America lifting Mjölnir aloft…
    But with the knowledge that Scarlet Witch is being controlled? And Vision? And perhaps they are connected to the ability to use Mjölnir now? It makes up for a lot.
    Writer*Nick Spencer*and Marvel pushed back*considerably to every concern presented to them, insisting we didn’t have the whole story. Marvel recently pleaded for readers upset by the story to be patient and wait for it to end*— while still expecting them to keep buying the book.
    The problem is, in the periodical nature that is comic book storytelling, why should an audience keep coming back for more when they keep feeling pushed back, unheard, or even insulted? When the context does arrive, who’s to say they stick around to see it? And if a change is so huge it feels like it reverses all the things that caused concern, who’s to say that won’t then upset those who had enjoyed the story so far and the promise of true and absolute change?
    This isn’t a movie or a TV show — the tease to add hope or deepen the mystery, or even answer it, isn’t coming after a three-and-a-half minute ad break. And when response to some concerns voiced — reasonable concerns presented reasonably, not insults extending to death threats (which are always abhorrently wrong) — feel like they are shrugged off or slapped away with sarcasm or harshness, would the context be enough to win them over anyway?
    If the FCBD issue was released before Secret Empire #1, perhaps it would have changed how people viewed the troubling image in what was technically a minor scene. In my case, it’s certainly toned down my concerns with the issue of Scarlet Witch and Vision joining Hydra; I still have some concerns with that, but it certainly doesn’t make me feel like it was as patently tactless and insulting as when I initially read it.
    And now we have Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso promising that Secret Empire #2 will have a “big moment” for fans of Captain America. Perhaps there is something coming that could turn around the story for those that felt so insulted by it — but perhaps it’s too late.

    I would prefer they make up and create terms for crossovers and duel use of characters otherwise what many want of her treated like as in any other MCU character is simply not going to happen.

    Whenever I think of Comics, Bryne, Kirby and Perez 1st come to mind and THIS IMAGE is Why Bryne is on That List!

    You just needed 1 example to show off why Bryne is who he is to comics, THIS IS IT!
