Well, I was way off the mark with the Byrne/Micheline/Stern-era villain (the one revealed is MUCH more "big & powerful" than the Grey Gargoyle), but . . . just WOW! I never dreamed they'd bring this one back in a workable story line!
I'm thrilled with what Slott is doing with Wanda so far . . . and Pham has her looking gorgeous, too! That big team reveal spread was just what I was hoping for--at least I got one of my predictions right! It honestly gave me chills . . .
WOW! WOW! WOW! Wanda IS back! And from the looks of things, she's right where she belongs, in control and fighting the good fight again. "No more Bendis," indeed!
Mighty Avengers promises to be an incredible ride for fans of the Scarlet Witch! I don't know how they're going to explain it all, but count me in!
: Given the Young Avengers' stony fate in the
: preview pages, is it safe to assume that the
: Byrne/Micheline/Stern-era "big,
: powerful Avengers villain" that Slott
: referred to in his Newsarama.com interview
: will be the GREY GARGOYLE?
: I'm thinking the answer is yes, and that he
: might have some powerful friends with him (a
: new take on the Masters of Evil, perhaps?).
: Anyway, Gargoyle was most recently seen as
: part of the Hood's cabal, which would
: provide a direct link to the Dark
: Illuminati, so who knows what kind of
: baddies might have his back...
: I'm hoping that Wanda might actually be
: Re-Assembling the classic Avengers team, or
: at least saving those in dire peril.
: Remember the early unscripted teaser pages
: that came out in mid-December?
: Mighty Avengers #21 First Look
: It would be easy enough to assume (as Vision
: and Cassie do) that Wanda is the source of
: the various catastrophes, but look at those
: early pages more closely.
: Just as in the new preview, I think it looks
: like Wanda is teleporting her former
: teammates AWAY from danger (getting Iron
: Man away from the volcanos/exploding
: megastructure, saving Hulk from that big
: block of ice he's apparently being encased
: Since I doubt Agatha Harkness can ever
: really die (she hasn't stayed dead yet), I'm
: hoping that she's stabilized Wanda and
: continued her mystical training, prepping
: her for a full-fledged return to hero-dom,
: even sans her reality-altering hexes.
: A fella can hope, right?
