This would be one hell of a party.
Wanda Maximoff in Wolverine and the X-men.
The OGN will take place in two time-periods:
The story from the past has the Avengers line-up of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Yellowjacket, Wasp, and Beast. When we open in the past, those characters are dealing with Ultron in a way we haven’t seen before.
She will possibly be part of the post-AXIS setting as well:
Nrama: So is the modern-day team the “Avengers NOW!” line-up, including Sam Wilson as Cap, the still as-yet-unnamed female Thor, and the others?
Remender: Yes, the “Avengers NOW! line-up as well as a couple of things people are not aware of that’ll be coming out of Avengers & X-Men: Axis. By March and April all those fun things will be revealed, and there’ll be plenty of surprises in the line-up.
Oh, many! I mean, Magneto is one of the few Marvel characters whose timeline is not that unclear. Magda died in the first few years of the 1950’s, right after the twins were born (they were sort of frozen for a few decades, that’s why they look so young), so of course Erik would have other lovers. The most notable would have to be Susanna Dane, Polaris’ mother; Rogue, of course; and none other than Janet Van Dyne (the Wasp) in Secret Wars. I can’t remember any that were as notorious as these three in the 616 universe, but there were others, less relevant characters you can read about here.
Probably the most dissrespectul thing you could do to character’s like Pietro and Wanda is change them from mixed race, jewish, complex characters who are part of the most symbolic fictional minorities ever created
into whitewashed, “troubled”, neo-nazi youth
Fuck you, Joss Whedon
Somewhere else it was said that they hate the Avengers. My guess is they volunteered to be experimented on by Hydra so they could face the Avengers in battle, maybe kill them? Either way, I don’t like it.
Well, unless Aaron-Taylor Johnson is mercilessly trolling us in that post I just reblog, apparently they choose to become Hydra lab rats. Joss Whedon is a gift, isn’t he?
They’re from Eastern Europe, and they’ve lost their parents from an early age. And they have each other. That’s it. They look out for one another, and (Quicksilver) in a very kind of physical protective way. And Scarlet Witch in a very sort of grounded, mothering, psychological, nurturing kind of way. And they look out for one another, and they’re angry and they want vengeance. They volunteer themselves up to Hydra to be experimented on, and they become enhanced.
Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci describing the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer
I’m really not feeling this “let’s make everything about Tony Stark” angle. Or the idea of Wanda mentally torturing Tony, hell Wanda torturing anyone.
Well, technically, that’s exactly what she did to Steve in Disassembled… =(
But she wasn’t in control then…
And more to the point, do we really want Disassembled? Especially this early on, where it will once again be about everyone except Wanda?
Disassembled was a turd of a storyline that turned Wanda into a plot device and gave the impression that she never learned to control her powers. There’s no way I’d want it in the MCU.
Oh, I completely agree with both of you. But we know Whedon must think different, the way he seems to seek inspiration in the worst versions of the character we’ve had so far. Makes him sound “edgy”.
