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.

But if they had tried to use the mindwipe it wouldn't have made him a different guy. It just would have been a guy that didn't really understand why everybody hated him. Realistically, there'd be a number of characters that wouldn't believe his amnesia if he used it as a reason to be absolved of responsibility for his actions. Luke Cage and the New Avengers still would have been set up by him with a ruse leading them to believe Steve Rogers was still alive. People would still have lost their loved ones in the Skrull attack, made more effective by him spreading Starktech throughout the world.

For him to say "Hey, I don't remember that - why would I ever do that?" would be a cheap copout and would be handled that way by any other writer touching on the subject.

For him to say "Hey, I don't remember that, but the fact that I did it means I'd probably do it again - it sounds like something I'd do," shows that he's not trying to make excuses for his actions, especially when the excuse really has nothing to do with the action, coming after the fact. That shows more character and is more honest to the character he'd been established to be over the past few years.
