Should Scarlet Witch get nerfed?

#1 Posted by Redberry (818 posts) - - Show Bio

Since she will be in a team book soon, do you think her power should get nerfed? At the moment, she rivals phoenix, and the phoenix five sees her as the only threat. If she still has her reality warping power by the end of the book, I think the villains need an upgrade or the other teammates should get an upgrade to keep up with her.

I think that in this new team book with The Scarlet Witch they're going to redefine her abilities and make it possibly even more confusing and her less intimidating.

For a very long time did I have a theory about The Scarlet Witch, Hope and the Phoenix. I thought that whatever sparked the existence of Hope also put Wanda in a safe place after the House of M fell and blocked her memory so that when the time comes she could use the powers she has left to give old mutants their powers back as Hope can give "new" mutants their powers and that is how Wanda and Hope are connected with the Phoenix. Though now I'm not so sure about that because of everything that's going on in Avengers Vs X-men

I think she might refrain from using her powers, sort of being apprehensive about because of all the damage she's caused.

No, I don't think she should get nerfed. She's still a glass canon and technically, her powers were always formidable being limited only by her knowledge of how to use and control them.

When reading the title of this I thought you were going to ask if she should get shot with a nerf toy :P
