Scarlet Witch #2



"I was definitely inspired by what Fraction and David Aja have done on HAWKEYE — how they managed to stay true to the character in the Avengers while also taking it in a fresh direction, so it wasn't just that same Avengers character doing solo things, which I don’t think ever really works for any sustained period of time for any of those second-tier characters." -- James Robinson

Scarlet Witch #1 - "About the Death of Many Cats"



"I think one of the things that I remember saying when I was pitching this to Marvel a long time ago is that you, me, most anybody who’s somewhat conversant with comic books can tell you Tony Stark’s personality, or Wasp’s personality, or Thor’s personality. I’m sure you could probably tell me, I don’t know, Foggy Nelson’s personality! But when you go to Wanda, it’s interesting that she doesn’t really have a locked-down personality—what she has is a series of incidents that have befallen her in her life, with the Vision, the High Evolutionary, with Magneto as her father, then Magneto wasn’t her father. All of this stuff is going on, but who is she as a person? What is she like?" -- James Robinson

Scarlet Witch #1




"I've been talking to Jason Aaron about making sure that she isn’t just a female Doctor Strange. There are differences even between her and Doctor Strange so that her magic is different; I'm really making a point of stressing that there's a female energy that connects with a certain kind of magic. As a sort of shorthand, I'm calling it 'witchcraft,' but there are literally areas of dimensions that she can go to that Doctor Strange wouldn't be able to go to, because he's a man."

These are pages/panels from a part near the end of JLA/Avengers where, after some reality shifts, Wanda and Vision are in their pre-John Byrne state where they're married but haven't gotten the kids yet. But then get information overload about their real reality and well...

WCA #90: Kill all humans? How limiting!

Back in the 1990s, Ultron decided he should look beyond his "Kill all humans" philosophy.

Ultron may be a genocidal murder-bot, but he thinks ahead. "Plants and animals might someday evolve to be a threat to me. Better kill them all, too."

Three pages from WEST COAST AVENGERS #90 after the cut. Written by Roy and Dannette Thomas with art by David Ross.
