no, no, dead, no, dead, no, unstable, dead.

 One scan from West Coast Avengers #44

Yes, I did find this highly amusing. Why do you ask?

I'm so so sorry, but all I could think about was this.

So Wanda wasn't too powerful or too unstable for their purposes?

Oh you poor dumb Omniscient Council of Vagueness!

Why the exclamation mark for Nekra?

Yeah, I know. But still, it's like they were thinking "Not too strong, not too crazy... Let's fix that!"

I'd never noticed that before. Presumably because her powers of strength and endurance only become active when she is being actively violent or aggressive.

What's unstable about 'ol McCoy, exactly?

And Colossus was dead? Huh. I didn't know he died more than the once.

This was probably during the time period when the X-Men were believed dead--after Fall of the Mutants. When they relocated to Australia, before Madelyne Pryor went evil in Inferno.

Well, sice Cyclops is in his X-factor costume, isn't this around one of the times he fluctuated from furry to not-furry? Maybe they're saying his powers were too unstable at the moment?

The ellipsis before they say no makes me wonder if they were actually considering him! I've always wanted to see Nightcrawler on the Avengers.

His genetic structure had already proved to be volatile when he turned himself into a blue furred semi-simian creature, his psychological profile was suspect because he'd decided to undergo a process which inadvertantly turned him blue and furry, without any testing of the possible side effects.

Or he'd have been killed because he was now possessed by "That which endures"

This isn't an Avengers selection board, it's a group of evil possessed humans planning on finding a host for the ancient shadow-life form "That which endures"

These remind me of the little portraits that John Byrne would do of the X-Men, Avengers and Fantastic Four that used to sit in the upper-left corner of the comic cover, in that same rectangle as the Marvel logo, number and price. These aren't as well-rendered, but I don't remember Byrne ever drawing the New Mutants, for example.

Oops, guess that's what I get for reading after 3 hours of sleep. Reading comprehension goes right down the tubes.

You misunderstand! The ones rejected for being too powerful weren't unstable enough, (Though Mags gets close!) the ones rejected for being too unstable just weren't powerful enough.

you have to pick for maximum clusterfuck potential.

Those were common in Marvel at the time, usually it was the series artist who did them, so the New Mutants got Bob McLeod's head shots, then Bill Sienkiewicz did them, and so on.

Yeah, but this was after the point where she blew up half of Wundagore Mountain, and was the one Avenger Ultron always made sure to take out first because her powers could affect even an indestructible adamantium opponent. I'd say if Magneto and Apocalypse are too powerful, she should have been ruled out too.

Y'know, if they hadn't chosen Scarlet Witch, Shadowcat would probably have been next. Love how Nekra gets a stronger NO while Nightcrawler they're almost considering for a moment.

I loved Archangel, seriously, he was so dark and broody and I was 12 and in love. I aslo loved Kurt. I think I have a thing for blue guys.
