salinea: Balder is unhappy (*D:*)

So apparently I missed this, which I've hastened to rectify because I shall not miss out of anything of the great Magnus family EPIC TRAGEDY.

Context: Ironman has just rebuilt/awakened Vision and brings him up to date with what happened in Disassembled, and him and She-Hulk make sure to namedrop Magneto in a blaming way because Bendis doesn't write in a contrived way at all and apparently nobody believes Doom.

So Vision decides to pay his former father-in-law a visit.

... well that was brutal.

(Don't ask me how that fits with the Vision's one tear of sadness when Wanda did visit the Avengers in AvsX #0).

So the Vision must be the most conflicted guy ever. First he basically tells Wanda to go fuck herself and the Avengers back him up in an utterly bros before hos manner, and now he's all "I NEED MY HUGGY WANDA WOOBIE BOOBOO!". Make up your mind, guy!

Also, Magneto - Really not helping portray your side as good guys when you stoop to the usual level of 'superhero misunderstanding fight' without it even being a misunderstanding.

Maybe he reflected on events and considered he might have overreacted? I mean, it was the trauma of losing their children that caused Wanda to cause Disassembled and all the other stuff, and he felt that pain as well. I mean, there was that scene in JLA/Avengers where the two of the are looking out into space (having seen a vision of how their universe would be once it was fixed) and Vision simply says, 'I know, my love.'

That was a very sweet scene.

You make it sound like Bendis would pay any attention to JLA/Avengers at all. I love the guy's writing on particular books, but he is a champ for ignoring things.

Magneto went way beyond "superhero misunderstanding" there. Asking someone why they don't kill themselves is dickish. Monologuing about you can control someone's body and force them to do horrible things without feeling any guilt is out-and-out supervillain.

Some people you shouldn't make kick the mule.

Magneto and DC's Thessaly top the list.

It would do Magnus good to meet an immortal witch who could legitimately out-badass him.

Alas, Thess doesn't do mortals. They don't stick around long enough.

After said someone has literally had his heart in his hand? I'd say it was remarkable control that he just said it.

Yeah, you don't want to start a power contest with a guy who can control one of the fundamental forces of the universe.

And yet some still find it in themselves to say 'hey, Scott's such a GREAT leader for the X-Men'. When your standards for membership are Magneto, sure, fine, why not? I mean, it's not like the guy still has dozens of crimes against humanity to his name.
