--Previous Message-- : I actully disagree, I hated the art but I : thought this was a good issue.

I agree here. I didn't think this issue was a great story....just filler. It does leave them some wiggle room to bring Wanda back. Is it me though, or are artists taking too much liberty in interpreting Wanda's look. I do realize people change their looks over the years, but it seems Wanda's look has changed from she looked like to something that resembles Jean Grey. I had to flip back and forth a few times before I realized Hawkeye was talking to Wanda and not a new side character. As for the Avengers Disassembled storyline, not only was Wanda's character totally ruined, but so was Quicksilver's. Now niether character is admirable or likeable. Yes, Quicksilver was rude and abrasive, but you always admired him for his family loyalty to his sister. Now there's very little left to admire. Sad.
