*spoilers and speculation!*

Scarlet Witch = Skrull?

Think about it, she started behaving rather oddly right after Kurt left and Geoff took over, particularly the Red Zone arc. Then she "goes crazy" after finding out about the kids she already knew she had, breaks up the Avengers, goes off with Magneto, does the whole HoM thing, then Clint finds her in Transia without her memory.

Sounds very Skrully. And pretty much the only way to get good old Wanda back, because it wasn't her.

Of course, if the Skrulls were able to alter reality, theres not much the Avengers can do to stop them! That whole wiping out of the mutants does make invasion alot easier...

I doubt she was a Skrull- I'd much rather have the explanation involve her exposure to the DC Universe's heavy-duty Chaos magic in Avengers/JLA. All of a sudden, she's so powerful that she can lay out the entire JLA singlehandedly? I bet that messed with her head, and helped her on the course to remembering the twins. It fits the chronology rather well, and it legitimizes the JLA/Avengers crossover.

That sounds pretty cool.

That costume? Wonder Man? The massive power upgrade? I realise there's a whole generation of readers that just don't know any better, but seriously, no. Just....no. That wasn't "good old Wanda" anymore than the more overtly-insane version Bendis gave us. Whether you simply want a trigger-moment for "that's where she went crazy", or you want the giant cop-out of her being a fake, THAT'S where you want to draw the line, since resetting her back to "adulterous, under-dressed, and unable to stop talking about chaos magic" would just be leaving her a different kind of broken.

The people who actually WANT that from her, and just want her back to fill the Avengers Sex Object role she got forced into, well, just make do with staring at Spider-Woman's implants, yo?

Why would a Skrull who somehow had the power to wipe out mutants, who very rarely affected the course of Skrull plots to begin with, not just say "No More Superhumans" instead?

And from a distance.

Without pretending to be Scarlet Witch.

Heck, why wouldn't he/she just create a House of S(krull) reality?

My view is that Magneto tricked his way into the Xmen in the Xorn suit. His powers were weak at the time and he turned to drugs to boost them. The result was he went just mental enough to take over New York. Once the drugs were out of his system he was back to being a driven terrorist with a need to build a master race, but otherwise not a bad bloke.

There was never a need to create a second Xorn who was the brother of the one that did not exist, to blame Exodus for the whole thing, to have Sentry throw the mind of Xorn into the sun, and so on and so forth. I'd be happy if all Xorn activity since Magneto stopped being Xorn could be blamed on the Skrulls, and further that any appearance of Magneto which remains a problem could also be blamed on the skrulls.

That's easy. Skrulls have created SuperSkrulls to imitate the power of many earth heroes - such as the Fantastic Four and Xmen. What if the Skrull/Wanda impersonator couldn't handle Wanda's power. It could have driven the impersonator mad, giving a reason for all the lapses in the storyline in Dissassembled and House of M. Doesn't negate the storylines.

She Hulk keeps denying that she slept with Jugs, and expressing frustration that people keep bringing it up. Maybe she was a skrull in that issue, and that's why she had to drive a truck into the bad guy instead of simply hitting them?
