The New WandaVision trailer, and My Hopes for the Upcoming Disney+ Show

Although I haven't been all that enthused about the post-Thanos MCU news and gossip that has been leaking during the pandemic, I am fully onboard for the upcoming Disney+ exclusive WandaVision

Check out this new WandaVision trailer:

The sales pitch:
Welcome to WandaVision. Coming soon to Disney+. Marvel Studios' captivating new series "WandaVision" stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and marks the first series from Marvel Studios streaming exclusively on Disney+. The series is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.

My issue with Wanda Maximoff's character in the MCU was always that they turned her into a telekinetic telepath, seemingly just because those powers were easier to explain than the probability bending powers that I grew up seeing her use as a mainstay in Avengers comics. 

In my mind, I explain the change away with the presence of the Mind Stone, which was obviously influencing her powers in Age of Ultron.  Yeah... That's it!

Anyways, with this new Disney+ streaming show, Marvel seems to be diving full-tilt into Wanda's reality-warping powers. 

For most of the character's history, the Scarlet Witch had the power to cast hexes that effectively made her targets have massively bad luck.  A power that Hollywood writers probably thought was dumb until Domino showed 'em how it's done in Deadpool 2.

Wanda was pretty much a cute team player with a quirky power that expanded a little when she started to study real magic during Steve Englehart's run on Avengers.  After a long-running romantic relationship with the Vision, she used her magical and reality-bending powers to conceive twins with the synthezoid. 

She still didn't become a heavyweight until John Byrne put her through the wringer in Avengers West Coast. Byrne starts to push the boundaries of what her powers actually do, hinting that she is much more powerful than anyone suspected.  

In a storyline called Vision Quest, Vision is dismantled and rebuilt with a robotic inhuman personality (because John Byrne wanted Wanda to be free to date other people, I assume?). 

It is also revealed that Scarlet Witch basically made her twins out of shards of a shattered demon that were absorbed back into a demonic sorcerer named Master Pandemonium. 

yes, really.

All through Byrne's run and every book after that, the Scarlet Witch seemed to get more and more powerful.

Wanda's powers evolved and became so massive that they famously allowed her to warp the entire universe into one with "no more mutants" in the series House of M. 

It would be interesting if they made it so that she had already done that (which would explain why there are no mutants in the MCU), making way for the mutants to "return" to the MCU after WandaVision.

Either way, I eff with movies and shows that embrace the full weirdness of the Marvel Universe I grew up on.  With Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok in particular, the MCU has shown that they can tread that kind of ground gracefully, so I can't wait to see WandaVision.
