Welcome to the board! I'm glad you like it, and I'm glad to see you're such a fan of my girl Wanda! |
: Now when I read of this, it was
: understandable. Maybe even fated, after
: what Byrne did to her marriage. Not to
: mention how it seems other authors have been
: with their origins. If we see Byrne as the
: author we Avenger fans know something bad is
: going to happen.
: This would be a little bit easier on us
: fans if Wanda didn't get with Captain
: America at one point. Just in the matter of
: poor Clint's self-esteem. Granted, both
: Steve and Wanda had a crush on each other
: but the age difference was always in the
: way. Captain America took on a more
: fatherly rank while Wanda tried to
: understand that her crush was never going to
: be more than that.
: Hawkeye could never really live up to the
: Scarlet Witch's standards of a man and well,
: Quicksilver also saw him more as a loose
: cannon. That is when Pietro wasn't playing
: the part in the early series himself. So
: now, seeing Wanda, deprived of her memory
: and left with just her basic human/mutant
: thinking, she clings to Clint? Because now
: they are more of an equal?
: I have always wanted to see Hawkeye grow
: up and settle down more. After all of these
: years, is it finally Hawkeye's turn to get
: the girl and keep her? It's an interesting
: twist but I can't say I have ever been
: impressed with Marvel turning the Scarlet
: Witch into every guys playboy bunny.
: Wanda's behavior in her hometown, just
: falling into bed with Clint seemed,
: uncharacteristic for her. Sure she has
: grown up but has she grown so lost that she
: will cling to a guy she doesn't know or
: really remember? I believe the concept was
: that she held a feeling of familiarity with
: this strange man and a need to seek some
: form of forgiveness? Yet usually, even
: Clint would find her too vulnerable in this
: place? She is lost. Did he honestly
: believe his sleeping with her would bring
: her back? I suppose for him, it was a
: reassurance that the love they shared, which
: has always been on a platonic level, would
: heal them both? Especially the pain it must
: have brought to Clint after realizing she
: killed him. A guess a part of him wishes
: she would have the restraint she usually
: manifested with the Vision? That their love
: was strong enough to prevent her from
: harming him too much? I would think it would
: hurt him more to think he might have taken
: advantage of her? Okay, one of Clint's
: character weakness' but not usually Wanda's?
: Sleeping with someone usually puts your
: friendship in a very akward position. Of
: course for Marvel, they can fun with the
: whole guilt trip and two people trying to
: pretend they don't care enough for the other
: person. Though didn't we go through that
: enough with Wanda and Simon? What is going
: on in the writers head? It can't help but
: feel kind of like, okay, Clint found her so
: now what? Let's give him what he always
: wanted just for the hell of it? Is this how
: it was all suppose to happen? How can it
: not feel like once again, the Scarlet Witch
: loses her character to behave desperately?
: How does Clint find this attractive?
: Well, he has done worse? How will Wanda
: though reconcile this action? It seemed to
: come out of nowhere and went nowhere? I
: guess we will see but I as usual, I much
: rather have seen them at least re-establish
: some kind of bond before Wanda put to risk a
: long standing friendship. It is just too sad
: to once again see Wanda in a such a state of
: disrepair. They just can't seem to beat up
: enough on her life which is too bad because
: she was one of the reason I started buying
: comics in the first place.
: Humm...I was disappointed when Marvel
: decided that the Scarlet Witch and Wonderman
: couldn't be together. This alternate thing
: with Nightcrawler is just a strange thing.
: I can see the ethnic relationship between
: them some and he isn't stupid. I'll just
: let that be in whatever world they want it
: to be in. I don't really mind Wanda with
: Clint. I always thought they would have a
: rather exciting, if oftentimes combative
: relationship. What fan of the Scarlet Witch
: can forget Clint's proposal of sorts?
: "Wedding Bells in your future?"
: Ah well. I like her character better
: settled down and Married. I actually loved
: the twins and thought Steve Englehart, the
: writing god that he is, came up with a
: pretty ingenious way to make all of that
: A superhero family? Who would have dared?
: Not Marvel. At least not for very long.
: That was too bad but the idea of Clint
: bringing Wanda back to reality and helping
: her re-adjust seems reasonable and sane. Of
: course, the idea of poor Clint being the end
: of the line kind of guy, especially after
: Cap, has got to hurt your ego some. Though
: at least hopefully, Marvel can kind of try
: to allow a few superheroines to maintain a
: certain level of dignity? Hopefully, maybe?
: Marvel can bring her back to the good side
: for awhile? That seems to be hoping for too
: much. Of course it would make me want to
: buy comics again.
: It was interesting reading the posts here.
: Perhaps in time, I can re-size your
: background so that it doesn't have to keep
: repeating and show up as a single picture?
: If you have a re-sizing picture program like
: I do, all you need to do is go into
: properties and resize the pictures width so
: that it better fits this page. I do like
: the background picture.
: When I have so more time to dig out my
: comics. I'll give you some of my favorite
: pictures of the Scarlet Witch. She has
: always been my favorite. I just lost
: interest when they started to just use her
: as a weapon for mass destruction. I
: understood, her powers are quite limitless.
: The storyline of her altering reality so
: extremely was creative. When they took her
: off of the Avengers, that was when I stopped
: buying Comics.
: Yet, my collection is awesome and I have a
: lot of first editions with pictures I don't
: mind sharing. Ah, for the time and days
: when I posted on that rogue website with the
: Baron Zemo and pals . I never wrote too
: much fanfiction, naughty me but I enjoyed
: what others wrote. I had a family and
: things got busy at home. That and how much
: could I really go on complaining about what
: idiots Marvel was for taking my favorite
: character off of the team? If they put her
: somewhere else, alright but no where? Ah
: well, it was time for me to go onto reading
: more of the classics.
: It would be nice, to see Hawkeye/ Rodin,
: become a stable influence in the New
: Avengers and to have him and the Scarlet
: Witch once again working side by side. Of
: course, who knows what those insane rulers
: of Marvel have planned for my favorite
: character next? Until then, I will keep
: checking your mssg. board to see if I have a
: reason to ever haunt a comic store again.
: Nice work.
: You have done a nice job here. I like the
: board and it is nice to see some more fans
: of Wanda's character posting regularly on a
: mssg board. I miss our old friend who ran
: the now defunct Scarlet Witch Website.
: I even made the Scarlet Witch's Gypsy
: Costume for Halloween and it is still one of
: my favorites to wear. Though no one in my
: town recognized it or acknowledged her
: character. Ah well. The cape comes in handy
: when it gets cold at night.
