When you are stuck in one of those awkward family situations this holiday season, just be thankful your father isn't an ex-supervillain.

This is from the sixth issue of the Vision and Scarlet Witch mini series that ran for 12 issues in the early eighties. Despite my affection for this couple, honestly it's not that great of a comic. But it did feature some important events, such as Wanda and Pietro learning Magneto was their biological father (issue 4) and some cracktastic antics, such as Wanda inviting Magneto to Thanksgiving dinner.

Technically Magneto was "reformed" during this time...but...yeah...old memories of supervillainry die hard.

The story opens with Crystal, Pietro and Luna arriving from the moon. The party is already in full swing, ridiculous costume-wearage and all. Why the artist felt the need to put so many people in full costumes is beyond me - at least get Wanda out of that stupid red cowl thingy. Then again, I don't know why the artist felt the need to draw Luna two sizes too small either.

"I don't want do hear about it!" Lol, Pietro is suck a dick.

Meanwhile things are pretty awkward for Mags too:

"He nearly destroyed the Defenders" - that's the best mental bubble they could come with for Dr Strange...*sigh*

I know Namor tends to be an arrogant, tactless man, but I think he must have a death wish here because I assume he's referencing that Silver Age Uncanny X-Men issue in which Magneto pimped Wanda out to Namor to curry his favor. "Remember that time your dad tried to whore you out to me and I almost took him up on it?" isn't something Wanda or Magneto want to be reminded of right now!

Something about Magneto in casual street clothes that is utterly wrong and utterly hilarious at the same time.

This seems like a bad idea all together.

"Hey Wanda, remember when Magneto hypnotized you into giving him that sexy dance?"

Aww, poor Magneto, screwed over because of his past actions. And Luna looks amazingly tiny there. 0.o

It is amusing to see everyone decked out in costume. I guess it's true.
"This is my only outfit"

"You know Wanda, I fancied you once!"
That whole bubble doesn't seem likes something Namor would say, but some how is still pretty awesome ( I can only imagine him saying that with a wink)
Oh Namor you cad :)

LOL! I love how Magneto's sitting there, sipping his coffee in his nice seamoss cable-knit sweater, and while everybody is thinking MAGNETO IS OUR ENEMY RAR, he seems to beer wondering if he should have another slice of cake.

People should go back to wearing capes.

Magneto you really have to stop pimping your kids out. Nothing good comes from pimping your kids out.

You know, I'm really surprised that this isn't on crack. It's Marvel, it's Thanksgiving, I was just waiting for someone to throw a pie or Luna or something...

I swear. Who introduces themselves that way at a party? Good thing Doom wasn't there.

"Behold, Doom has come! I brought booze."

I read it as a clever reference to his classic self-introduction, which he used to trot out at the slightest provocation: "I am... power! Men call me... MAGNETO!"

I' pretty sure it's the other way around. Charles said so.

Wow, Marvin's really let himself go since SUPERFRIENDS. But got himself a better cape I guess.

Seriously though, who is the chubby San Diego refugee with the bowl cut? I don't believe I've seen that guy before.

I love that Magneto is the only super in casual clothing there.

This gotta be the worst costume Wanda wore, ever. Is this something like pregnancy clothes?

Also: Wanda - "I cry because I'm pregnant, it's my hormones", and Pietro "I'don't care!", made me laugh! Oh Pietro, I love you so much!

I read this mini when I was eight or nine and I didn't really know anybody (outside of having read the Marvel Update books) but I thought this was filled with cracky Glee.
