Greetings True Believers!

I have a response to Avengers: Children's Crusade #6 which came out today.

You'll want to check out Colonel Green's post if you haven't been following the series.


CG's post.

Well, Wanda. What about these folks?

Scans are from New X-Men and Decimation: Generation M.

Is Wanda going to wiggle her nose and bring them back? Is Iron Lad going to pop into the time-stream and bring them back?

Somehow I doubt it.

Let Logan gut her or put her in a little power-controlling box where she can re-power mutants one by one. Other then that, she never gets to use her powers again.

But that's not going to happen. I know and understand why but I wanted to voice a feeling that came up after reading CC #6 today.

I don't think killing her is really the right response here. Wanda was severely mentally unhinged at the time and murdering someone for unforeseen consequences of an action they performed while mentally impaired seems wrong. (And to be honest, her normal behavior in CC is kinda weird given that she's had no help with various problems.) Locking her up, yeah. Getting her some goddamn therapy, yeah. There's about a hundred ways to limit or eliminate her powers.

The "arbitrary changes" thing is something that really honked me off about the way the story was developed. Shouldn't the mutation wipe have effected everyone the same way? Why did Beak and his kids revert to normal humans when neck girl didn't? Why was the Blob stuck halfway between, retaining the skin, but none of his fat?

Wolverine lost all sympathy when he decided to murder Wiccan as well. I get him wanting to get revenge on Wanda, but wanting to kill a kid just because he may one day have the potential to do what Wanda did? Uncool. Hell, Wolverine gets brainwashed every few months or so and tries to kill everybody. Logically his ass should get eliminated too.

Exactly. If he followed his own logic he would have to kill Daken and X-23. They already showed at one point or another that they have the potential to kill a healthy dose of people. But like a bad housekeeper, he just sweeps those two under the rug.
