5) Wiki of the Week:  Scarlet Witch’s powers

The Scarlet Witch possesses the mutant power of affecting probability fields. By a combination of gestures and mental concentration, she creates a hex-sphere, a finite pocket of reality-disrupting quasi-psionic force, which upon reaching its intended target, causes disturbance in the molecular-level probability field surrounding the target. Thus, unlikely phenomena will occur. Among the many phenomena she is able to cause are: the sudden melting of gun barrels, the spontaneous combustion of any flammable object, the rapid rust or decay of various organic and inorganic materials, the poltergeist-like deflection of an object in flight, the sudden evacuation of air from a given volume, the disruption of energy transmissions and fields, and so on. These phenomena occur practically instantaneously after the completion of her hex. Her range of hex-casting is limited by her line of sight. (She cannot watch a live television broadcast and cause a hex-phenomenon to occur at its point of origin.) Scarlet Witch’s hex-casting ability had a 20% unreliable factor and she is limited in the range of sight, although she has been able to overcome the latter limitation on occasion via extreme concentration and sorcerous enchantment.

Wanda is also a living focal point for the earth’s magic. Her sorcerous training with Agatha Harkness is separate from her mutant ability of probability (science). But the mixture of the two makes her considerably more powerful than just using her probability powers. She has a special affinity for the natural elements and materials that true witches utilize in their spells: the four alchemical elements, wood, organic substances, etc. The reliability factor of her hex-casting ability is also limited by her physical condition: when well rested, in good health and mentally and emotionally alert Scarlet Witch can cast numerous hex-spheres in rapid succession and attain desirable results for almost an hour. However, certain events in House of M, have shown that her limits may have been removed altogether. And her powers actually evolved, giving her the mutant ability to alter reality on a vast scale by way of magic

In the House of M storyline, Wanda showed that she could fly, transform people and matter, fire powerful beams of magic, and disable other mutants abilities. She could also bring the dead back to life. And while it appears that Scarlet Witch may have depowered herself, an incident with Hawkeye shows that she may have in fact retained her reality altering powers. Another hint of this, is that Wanda is 1/3 the earth’s High Priestess, As seen in tarot cards. Showing that there is still hope for her after all.

Marvel Infinite Comics.   Infinite Comics are Marvel’s first foray into releasing digital only comics.  They will be made specifically for tablets like the  iPad..  The first comic will be Nova.  Featuring the new Nova, on his way to Earth to warn the Avengers about the Phoenix Force.  This digital comic will only be  .99 cents, or free with the purchase of Avengers vs X-Men #1, and will be released on April 4th.

Death of Jean Giraud aka Moebius. Jean Henri Giraud, better known as Moebius, was born in 1938 in the suburbs of Paris. He’s been using the Moebius pseudonym since 1963, when he wanted to draw a distinction between his work in fantasy and science fiction and other works. Giraud started art school at the age of 16, and by 18, he was drawing a comic strip called “Frank et Jeremie” for FAR WEST magazine.
Moebius did strips from 1963 to 1964 in a magazine called HARA-KIRI and then disappeared for many years. Then in 1975, he co-created a magazine entitled METAL HURLANT. In 1981, he started his immensely popular INCAL series with Alejandro Jodorowsky. ARZACH and the serial, THE AIRTIGHT GARAGE, also had their origins in METAL HURLANT.
In 1988, Moebius drew a two-part SILVER SURFER limited series with writer, Stan Lee.  He did production design for several movies, including Alien,  Dune, Tron, The Abyss and The Fifth Element.    He passed away at the age of 73.

Lots of creator changes on the way.  Brian Michael Bendis will be taking on the X-Men franchise.  Amy Reeder is leaving Batwoman citing ‘creative differences’.  Jeff Lemire will be taking over Justice League Dark.

The mysterious lady in purple, known as “Pandora” who appeared at the end of Flashpoint and in all of the 1st issues of the new 52 had a back-up story in Justice League #6.. she was in a heated debate with the Phantom Stranger.

  • This summer, Marvel is releasing a three-issue limited series titled MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS: BLACK WIDOW STRIKES, where the red-headed Russian goes to her homeland to stop an international crisis. Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity of movies, this espionage thriller promises to give readers their first full view of how lethal Black Widow can be.  “This story takes place between ‘Iron Man 2’ and ‘Marvel’s The Avengers,'” writer Fred Van Lente tells Marvel.com.  “Black Widow is running down some loose ends from ‘Iron Man 2,’ namely some bootleg Stark technology that Justin Hammer made. It’s her and Agent Coulson going into Russia, but you’ll also probably see Nick Fury and the other heroes as necessary.”

  • News of the week from comics

ICv2 estimated value of the digital comics market in 2011 was $25 million, triple the 2010 figure, and predicts that digital will account for 10 percent of the entire comics market in 2012. Digital sales grew faster in the second half of the year, which ICv2 attributes to three factors: DC’s decision to release its New 52 comics digitally the same day as print, the industry-wide trend toward same-day print and digital releases, and the proliferation of different platforms on which to read digital comics.

SMALLVILLE Season 11.  Written by former Smallville show scribe Bryan Q. Miller, the new digital first series will be published digitally on April 13, 2012, with new digital chapters released weekly thereafter. Additionally, the online chapters will be offered in a print periodical, along with an episode guide to the hit television series, with the first print issue released on May 16. The new comic book series picks-up where the show left off.

May marks another first for the “New 52” era of DC Comics — oversized annuals for Batman, Teen Titans and Animal Man.

The Batman annual is co-written by series writer Scott Snyder with James Tynion IV.  the issue will feature the debut of classic villain Mr. Freeze in DC’s New 52 continuity, and fit into the building Court of Owls storyline.

The regular Teen Titans team of writer Scott Lobdel and artist Brett Booth are joined on that book’s annual by co-writer Tom DeFalco. The issue kicks off a crossover that continues in Superboy #9, Legion Lost #9 (written by DeFalco), Teen Titans #9 and The Ravagers #1. In a post on The Source, Lobdell reveals that the comic will feature the first glimpse of “the Colony,” and introduce much of The Ravagers cast.

The Animal Man annual is written by series writer Jeff Lemire and illustrated by Timothy Green II.  “In many ways this Annual is like a prequel to the crossover storyline that Scott Snyder and I have planned for Animal Man and Swamp Thing,” Lemire said in a post on The Source.

Comic Sales for January.  DC leads the pack with most units sold, with a clean sweep of the top ten best selling comics, according to Diamond.  Marvel, however is the leader in Dollar Market for the second month in a row.
