I can't stand the Scarlet Witch and how the Avengers feels when she is in the book. Why?

She has magical abilities, which I do not like because there is no clear limitation to magical abilities in a superhero book. So Cap says "We have to go take down the Red Skull" and Wanda looks up from breakfast and says "Yeah, zap, done it - what's next?"

She has probability altering powers but not the subtle cool kind you get with Longshot, that 'knows things' girl from over at Xfactor or Domino. Her powers seem to be anything the writer does not know is impossible (what are the odds the floor would suddenly ice up? In Arizona? Really?)

Vision/Wonderman - all that. Enough of that stuff for a start.

She is Magneto's daughter which would be cool in itself but it just never is.

Only once in forty years of appearing in the Avenger and leading the Avengers has Wanda ever been assigned a solo operation to get a job done. It happened in the Cap/Falcon series and even then may not have done considering.

SW is one of the least accessible characters outside of the Avengers, and almost never operates without them. However, there are other instances of her acting solo, including in Avengers Vol. 1, No. 153.
