The official Marvel site treats House of M as something that “re-imagined the Marvel universe”
Mainstream/Core House of M
Sends an attack on Avengers Mansion and a whole army of Ultron bots
Makes Tony Stark seem drunk at a conference
Sends a helicarrier to attack the Avengers
Beast reminds us that she willed her children into existence
Doctor Strange claims there is no such thing as "Chaos Magic"
An insane Wanda battles Doctor Strange
Summons and takes control over Dormammu
Creates a pocket reality where she has children and everything is peachy. Then Xavier comes in
Creates the infamous House of M reality (Earth-58153)
Can create duplicates of her body
Can show the past to others
Gets cut by an arrow, but it doesn't faze her much
Disintegrates Hawkeye by accident
Resurrects Quicksilver/Stated to be capable of blinking everyone from existence on the field
Strips a vast majority of mutants on Earth of their powers/By doing such reverts Earth-58163 to 616
The mutants are suffering from the consequences
Magneto lost his powers as well
All of this "No more mutants" seemed like a stupid way to get rid of characters that the writers didn't want to use anymore, didn't it?
At first, this was thought to be the end of House of M, however all of this had major consequences for the Marvel universe itself, and numerous tie-ins, which explained how much havoc Scarlet Witch truly caused, which was previously thought to be only planetary.
What "No more mutants" actually did
Scarlet Witch's spell zipped through countless of worlds and dimensions, affecting billions of souls
Doctor Strange says he could reverse Scarlet Witch’s spell, but if he did, all of reality would implode. The spell has officially woven through all there is.
Ms. Marvel states Scarlet Witch altered all of reality
Scarlet Witch’s spell affected all (likely infinite) realities, thus making it multiversal
Pushed back the Phoenix Force beyond space and time
The spell wiped out mutants from all futures as well
While tampering with the multiversal energies (and likely not being aware of it), Scarlet Witch caused another powerful energy source to emit from 616 and spread throughout the Multi/Omniverse. The Chaos Wave.
How powerful the Chaos Wave was
The Chaos Wave could have potentially destroyed all of Creation, if it was not stopped
Roma was the one to state this, and she created a realm called “Otherworlds” which acts as a focal point of all realities, a pan-dimensional realm, and contains all of existence
Oh, she can also get the attention of Eternity and Infinity
It contains this citadel, which was stated to be connected to all planes of existence
The Otherworlds also contains an energy matrix, which was confirmed to collapse all plains of realities if it was ever to be broken
Clashed all dimensions and resurrected Mad Jim Jaspers
Destroys countless realities (Galactus’ foot can be seen here)
Could she have been this powerful all along?
As a nexus being, she could have been capable of erasing timelines since the very beginning. The writers just waited for the right moment to use her as a plot device.
An omniversal threat?
After his long research with Doctor Strange, Beast states Wanda likely wiped out mutants in the whole omniverse
The wave spread throughout the Omniverse
Can she do this again?
She satirically states that she can do all of this again, and even go up to erase the concept of death (hyperbole)
Red Skull wanted her to repeat that, she said she can under special circumstances
Scarlet Witch's crazy House of M years caused an irreversible change to the Marvel universe and left a scar in its history. She was hated for years because of the fact that she killed so many innocent people and destroyed the X-gene. Luckily, she showed repentance for these things she did in the past, by helping the Avengers and X-Men eliminate the Phoenix Force as an evil threat, and to this day, she still fights beings who pose a huge threat to humans and beyond. It's only a matter of time when the writers decide to use her reality-altering powers again to make another storyline.
