@JamDamage: Apparently insanity and possession pleas only work if you're trying to commit genocide, not prevent it.

@80sBaby: The Phoenix Force is supposedly life incarnate, right? I'd say then, that the PF is pretty much the authority on nature. And are you actually telling me that the preservation of one's race isn't something worth fighting for? Really? Anyway, mutation is a part of evolution, so Cyke was totally attempting to preserve the natural order. As for Reed, don't forget, shooting the Hulk into space was also Iron Man and Professor X's idea, too, and I'm not sure what Reed's marital status has to do with anything, here. Okay, so if generals can be held accountable for their troops, shouldn't Cap be held accountable for Wanda's actions, too, then?

@Cooke76: Well, first of all, that's only ONE Avenger and not "so many" as the poster suggested. Second, Wanda's "crimes" weren't public like Cyclop's were. That changes A Lot as the world governments would want him to pay. Also, unlike Cyclops, Wanda was truly insane and she expressed remorse for her actions. Third, what "crimes" did Wanda actually commit? Giving everyone their wish? Or are you speaking of eradicating the mutant gene, which isn't an actual "crime."

You can't be serious

No kidding.

Cyclops expressed remorse repeatedly. The only thing he doesn't regret is the rebirth of the mutant gene (which also isn't a crime, 80sBaby). Also, it was hardly everyone's wish to have their x-gene taken away. Hell, weren't there even suicides amongst some former mutants distraught over it being forcibly taken away? I'd imagine for many it would be like losing your arms or legs.

@Veidt: Well, Sentinels, for one. Those things have always had some sort of 'mutant detectors' haven't they?

@80sBaby: The way I understood it, where Wanda forcibly blocked mutations from happening, what Scott was hoping for was that the Phoenix Force through Hope would unblock what she did and allow those mutations to happen as they would have naturally occurred, so no, helping nature move along on it's natural course does not make him a hypocrite or a criminal. As for forcing world governments to follow his rules, even the smartest man alive, Reed Richards, said that the P5 weren't really doing anything wrong and only lashed out when provoked by The Avengers (who struck the first blow to begin with). As for Namor, if you remember correctly, Scott told him that they weren't to take any sort of military action like that. It was Namor's doing when provoked by Emma.

Wow, I can't believe someone has argued that genocide and messing with people's genes/bodies without their consent isn't a crime.

Also, Cyclops did express remorse.

QFT on both counts.

@80sBaby: Wanda at least had the excuse of not being in her right mind when she did the "No more mutants" act.

And Cyclops was possessed by the Phoenix Force. Cuts both ways.

While I do like Helena Wayne better (never really warmed up to Bertinelli), it only makes sense that they used Bertinelli. The DC PTB were never going to let a non-Batman-related show use a Batman-related character.

Neeeeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvverrrrrrrrrr.

Maybe Arrow can help make me see what the appeal is.

@Jonny_Anonymous: Wolverine has been trying to not cross that line anymore, and he's working on teaching younger mutants that it's not right to kill arbitrarily like that.

Yet he ends up putting more body counts in his solo book.

Exactly.

@kagato: you are on some serious drugs to make that comparison

Indeed.
