What If? The Avengers Disassembled

What If? The Avengers Disassembled - Comic of the Day
What if the Scarlet Witch was super tall?
Remember way back when the Scarlet Witch, Wanda, lost her mind and manipulated reality (comic book reality...stay with me here) and killed Hawkeye, the Vission and destroyed Avengers mansion? Yeah, it's a little fuzzy to me, too. I mean that was like 8 to 9 years ago. Well, they made a What If? comic book about it. The comic of the day asks the question: What if there was more to it than simply the Scarlet Witch loosing her mind?

We find out that there is more to the story when it comes to what happened to the Avengers that fateful night at the Avenger mansion. It wasn't just Professor Plum with the candlestick in the kitchen as we all thought.

Side note: While the movie Clue with Tim Curry is awesome, the actual game sucks. No one is ever quite sure how to play and you can guess who the killer is at any point. If you get the answer wrong then the game is ruined for everyone. Clue sucks!

Oh yeah, the Avenger junk. Well, it's another case of Marvel sexism. A woman couldn't possible be responsible for something so memorable and destructive. It takes a man to step-up and kill a fool like a man. The Witch gets to be crazy while the man gets to be cunning, but also crazy...can't start killing fools and not be crazy. Unless it was an accident like that one summer where me and my friend accidentally ran over a fisherman in the street and then left his body to die off the side of a dock.
