Has anyone else noticed that in both the Pham preview "gatefold" sketch and the cover solicit above that Wanda almost looks like she's casting a hex/spell over her teammates, perhaps compelling/controlling them from behind? In the sketch, especially, they do all look somewhat bedazzled, notably Hercules. And in the cover preview, her hex bolts sort of float around/beside all of the characters. I'm not familiar with Pham's work, so maybe it's just his style.
But I've also never seen her cast her hexes using just one hand, and on the cover preview, she's got her left arm down altogether. She apparently can now levitate, too, which is not a skill I remember her having before the Skrull ship full of fake heroes crash landed in the Savage Land or outside of the Ultimate universe.
I've also read on a couple of other boards that there's a possibility that Wanda has been at Camp Hammond during the events of SI and that she may soon be revealed as the "cover-worthy" red-headed Mutant Zero (the other leading candidate is Jean Grey). Not sure how likely that is, but Marvel has hinted that at least one other member of the Initiative will be joining Jocasta on the Mighty Avengers roster, so I guess Wanda being that member is as good a guess as any (was Hank ever really part of the Initiative, or was that one always a Skrull?).
