Avengers: The Children’s Crusade

The Children's Crusade #7

One of the series that has almost been over looked this year is Avengers: The Children’s Crusade. The Young Avengers appear in the 2010–2011 miniseries we are now at number 7 of 9 it will hit the stores September 21 this month. In the series, Magneto learned that the Young Avengers were going to search for the still missing Scarlet Witch, and that Wiccan and Speed may be the reincarnations of Wanda’s children. The Young Avengers finally find Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) and through a series of events she remembers what happened in Avengers Disassembled, House of M and Decimation. She is feeling guilty for the crimes she committed, the lives she changed the people she removed from existence. He changed reality itself with her mutant powers.

And now she is back to full power and knowledge of who she is. In issue #7 the media release says: IT’S THE AVENGERS VERSUS THE X-MEN – with the Young Avengers and X-Factor caught in the crossfire — as all four teams battle to determine who will hold the Scarlet Witch responsible for her crimes. Plus, when the origin of the Scarlet Witch’s godlike powers – and the secret history of her murderous rampage in “Avengers: Disassembled” — are finally revealed, the truth creates a rift among the members of the Young Avengers that the team may not survive.

Wanda is one of the most powerful mutants and must be dealt with in the Marvel universe. This series seems out of current continuity and does not fit in the current events in the Marvel major story arcs. So it may have happened previously. One way or the other it is an interesting story with very good art work. Story by Allan Heinberg, art by Jim Cheung and Mark Morales. For those who have always wondered what Marvel is going to do with the Scarlet Witch well here it is the story to read. Catch the next issue this week at your neighborhood comic store. Stay tuned comic faithful for more. 🙂 Walt
