I doubt they'll be very inspired by the Ultimate Universe. Ignoring the whole twincest thing (which will not be in a movie because no), they have far too much connection to Magneto. While the twins seem to have shared rights between Fox and Marvel, I'm fairly certain Magneto does not. They'll probably stick with their origin of being children of gypsies. They'll likely skip the whole former terrorist thing or they might replace it with something else like helping another villain then turning themselves in. Wanda's powers will probably be considered solely magic and Pietro's unexplained metahuman abilities. Actually, if they did go with Wanda being solely magic, there is a possible connection to Doctor Strange for when they make that movie.

Overall, I'm super excited about the possibility of seeing my favorite character up on the big screen! I've been wanting Scarlet Witch in the Avengers since I heard they were making those movies. We shall see how they fit the twins in if it is indeed them.

I enjoyed the story overall, but I hate how it screwed over the Scarlet Witch's character. One thing I liked about her was how strong she was portrayed over the years despite all the crap she was put through, especially concerning the loss of her children. I felt Bendis completely ignoring the fact that Wanda did remember her kids (Agatha did block her memory for a time, but lifted it) yet managed to work past the tragedy was a great disservice to the character. That's really my only complaint with it. Oh, that and the X-Men's self-righteous behavior that has continued since. Seriously, "put down" half your X-Men and then we'll talk about killing a person not in control of themselves. *cough* Okay, I'm done.

    This was a weird character moment for both wanda and rogue.

    It really was. At the end of Children's Crusade, Rogue seemed to be one of the few that didn't want to burn Wanda at the stake, so I find it weird she's so hostile, even with the whole AvX thing. As for Wanda, I don't think she would have made such a comment or even half the comments she made in the issue. She'd be sympathetic towards Scott because, like her, he screwed up. She might be feeling exasperated with the fact the X-Men seem to be using her mistake as an excuse to do what they want, but I still think she would have held her tongue (or at least not said what she did in such a condescending way) because of the guilt she's still experiencing.

    Not sure if the writer has a firm grasp on Wanda (or even Rogue) yet, though her actions at the end of the issue was very Wanda-esque, so maybe it was just a hiccup.

    I knew they were going to erase Obsidian (and Jade) from existence, I just knew it. Dangit! There goes one of my favorite characters. Alan Scott being gay doesn't bother me, I just wish the whole idea behind it didn't start because they were erasing his LGBT son. I hope Robinson brings them back and, for a few brownie points from me, brings Damon Matthews back as well. Loved him and Todd together.

    Now this is something I can look forward to! I adore JiM and even though I'm not reading New Mutants right now, the group has always had a special place in my heart. I hope the crossover will help boost JiM's exposure... I don't want to lose yet another Marvel comic series I love because sales are low.
