I'm on the fence about this whole issue. The big thing is that I haven't read a lot of stories with Wanda in them (I'm actually pretty sure that Disassembled was one of my first Avengers comics), so I don't feel really comfortable passing judgement on her charactarization.
M-Day was the result of a broken and highly unstable woman with WAY too much power trying to make sure that her percieved mistakes could never be repeated. Not exactly a recipe for succes there, so that many of the results were horrifying is to be expected. She does not deserve to be comepletely absolved for her crimes, especially not without penance, but I believe helping the people who want to be helped will go a long way. It is the will to help that makes people heroes, not their past, so I do like that. I just hope that Schism doesn't complicate things further (HEY, that might be the catch you're all clamoring about!).
What troubles me from a story perspective is Wanda's insane reality warping powers. At the very least she has to live with the death toll, so she's not off scott free, but repowering the mutants by her hands feels a bit off, even if it does make for good redemption.
Then there's the fact that she's sort of intruding on Hope's Mutant Messiah gig. The writers are going to have to figure out a way for that to work to make sure one does not feel redundant after all that developement and build up.
Wow that was a long post.
