OK, I have some questions about the Scarlet Witch's power, as it relates to the Children's Crusade and Avengers vs X-Men.
As I understand it, some time ago, Wanda gained the power of the Life Force, which she used to do the whole "no more mutants" thing. The Life Force is the retcon explanation for how her power was elevated to the level at which she could accomplish such a thing.
Then she disappeared, and was later found, amnesiatic, during Children's Crusade.
Eventually, she and Wiccan and Doom were going to cast a spell to give the mutants their powers back. But Patriot intervened, and the spell was interrupted. This had the result of her losing the Life Force, and Doom gaining it. He went nuts with power, of course.
Now, it's important to emphasize how powerful the Life Force is--Doom says it was more powerful than when he had the power of the Beyonder (which of course we have to understand as the power of the retconned Beyonder, but still, that's pretty powerful).
Wanda figured out how to beat Doom--by opening the portal to the Life Force at full blast. Doom succumbed and lost the Life Force (in one of his few willpower failures ever, I should note). BUT, it does NOT seem like Wanda gets the Life Force back, from what I can tell.
Once Doom loses the power, he inexplicably (to my mind) says "You think you were powerful enough to destroy the Avengers and rid the world of its mutants? That was me. That was Doom." I have no idea what he means by this.
Anyway, there is no evidence, as far as I can tell, that Wanda gets the Life Force back. She has her normal powers, as far as I can tell, at the end of Children's Crusade.
BUT, in Avengers vs X-Men, Wanda is shown to be extremely powerful--she is essentially the only person able to stand up to the Pheonix 5. Now, I find it hard to believe that NORMAL Wanda could do this. It seems to me that only the Life Force-amped Wanda (which according to Doom would put her above post-retcon Beyonder) would be able to stand up to the Pheonix power.
So my question is, do you think Wanda lost the power of the Life Force at the end of Children's Crusade? If you think she got it back, can you show any scan from Children's Crusade (or elsewhere) that says that she got it back? OR, if she didn't get it back, then how do you think she's facing up to the Pheonix, considering that her previous high-level feats were only accomplished with the aid of the Life Force?
And, what the heck does Doom mean when he says that he's the one who got rid of the mutants?
Thanks for your help.
