Anyone else watching this? So far, it is pretty good and is an excellent nod to all the TV nostaligia from decades past. You can name the shows each episode is mirroring: I Love Lucy, Bewitched/The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Brady Bunch, Full House/Growing Pains, Friends, etc.

Some minor characters from previous movies are regulars: FBI Agent Jimmy Woo from Ant Man, Dr. Darcy Lewis from Thor, and a now-adult Monica Rambeau from Captain Marvel.

I had no idea that Wanda was that powerful, but perhaps there is something else going on, especially given the reveal from the latest epsidoe. Interestingly, reshaping reality on that scale has not drawn the attention of Dr. Strange or any other sorcerer; apparently it has not registered on the Avengers' radar, either, and they all know what she has been through. Still, they cannot afford to bring those characters in--I mean monetarily, not just plot-wise.

My Scarlet Witch lore is not very high, so I need to research her on the Marvel wiki. I think they actually did settle in Westview for a while, but like I said I have to look into it.

Speaking of cameos....Quicksilver...but not the one she was expecting. That one is already all over YouTube, so it isn't really a spoiler.

Oh...and we get an origin story in addition to character development for Wanda and Vision.

I'm really enjoying it!

There are rumors that we will be seeing a big name (possibly Dr. Strange) in the final two episodes. And it's been announced that Wanda will be appearing in "Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness".

Also, in-show, all this is happening only a couple of weeks after the end of "Avengers: Endgame" so it's reasonable to assume the Avengers and other powers are still dealing with everything that happened, coming to grips with being returned to life, or mourning their losses, etc.

I had not heard that Wanda would be in MoM but her powers definitely relate. Magic in the MCU is really just physics--taking energy from one place, changing its form, and using it here for different effects.

Am I the only who thinks that Wanda's power has the same color that the Aether (reality stone) did?

Wanda is definitely suffering some extreme grief.

Watching the first couple of episodes was neat but slightly off putting without understanding the context. Now having watched all but the most current episode every strange thing makes sense and I'm really enjoying the series.

"She recast Pietro." Made me laugh out loud.

I'm hoping to see Simon Williams make a showing.

That's the rumor.
I hope so too.
I can't imagine how they're going to introduce/create him.
I really like that comic character.
There were some great stories they could tap involving Vision being jealous of him too.

This show has really been outstanding overall.
Every character is enjoyable.

It also opens up a lot of questions, not the least of which is "is that really her brother?". Sure, she subsequently saw him as he really should be--bullet wounds in the chest--but the version of Quicksilver currently on the show is from an alternate reality and that character isn't dead.

We all know that eventually the X-universe will be folded into the MCU.

How, exactly, did the Mind Stone get recreated on Vision's forehead, thus allowing him to access some of its minor abilities? I know that the field is rewriting matter but that is some serious rewriting.

"It's been Agatha all along" generates even more questions

The show purports that Agatha has some nefarious purpose going on here, but that is not how that character has interacted with Wanda over the years in the comics. She was Wanda's mentor and teacher; if this holds true then she is trying to help Wanda process her grief. I guess we'll just have to see, though.

What was Hayward's second source of vibranium that was blipping on the scanners?
