Reply Subj: It feels like they treated a symptom while ignoring the larger problem.

    Comic book writers often tend to ignore this. (Especially with the more powerful characters.) Wanda in particular has been so powerful that she'a a walking chiche Deus Ex Machina character. If she's at that power level, people can't help but ask "Why doesn't the Scarlet Witch just wave her hand and make the villains vanish" every time there's a tense situation. Say what you will about Avengers Disassembled, but it got rid of that blockage of drama and tension. (House of M also got rid of the problem of too many Mutants in the MU.) If this is it for Hienberg's story, he will have fixed the "Wanda Problem" but will have brought back the bigger problem of another "can do anything" character.


It depends on what level of power Wanda has when Children's Crusade is over. If she's at her '80's level of power, then arguably she won't be too powerful.
