* BaseBreaker: Avenger-Fans have largely forgiven her for her actions during Disassembled/House of M, mainly because it was established in ComicBook/TheChildrensCrusade that she was [[NotHimself not herself]] at that time. On the other hand, for most parts of the X-Fandom she is still {{The Scrappy}}, because she [[KarmaHoudini never got any real punishment]] while Cyclops (whose actions also happened under a mental breakdown and possession) gets him hunted down like a criminal. What doesn't help matters is that Cyclops's actions themselves were in attempts to fix the damage she caused, which makes the times she herself tries to guilt Cyclops even more ridiculous.

Then, of course, there are those still disgusted by [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale what she did to Wonder Man]] and that she has not only never been punished for it, but has still been allowed on the Avengers and has still been in romantic relationships with Wonder Man.

Added DiffLines:
* FandomRivalry: Fans of ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} in particular dislike Wanda, or rather, how Wanda was forgiven for actions that amount to, at best, ''accidental genocide'', while Cyclops, who's actions amounted to 'killed one guy in self defence', was treated like he was a supervillain outside of the Bendis-written X-Books, despite all mentioned above. What doesn't help matters is how Cyclops was ''clearly'' NotHimself from the beginning, while Wanda's excuse for her behaviour was retconned in years later, and in a rather clumsy manner as well.

Not YMMV
* TooDumbToLive: Yeah Wanda, Comicbook/DrDoom [[SarcasmMode is surely the best person you can go to for help]], there is no way he would ever use you for his own goals....oh, wait.

* TheWoobie: While she's done some questionable things, it's pretty hard not to feel bad for her.

* KarmaHoudini: ** Over ''House of M'' and, more specifically, the Decimation event. When [[Comicbook/AllNewXMen O5 Jean Grey]] learns what Wanda did she nearly has a breakdown and tries to attack her. Also, when the X-Men insist Wanda be dealt with the Avengers ''immediately'' come to her defense and tell them "We take care of our own." Needless to say, this has become something of a BerserkButton for X-Men fans. ** And then she breaks reality ''again'' during ''Comicbook/{{Axis}}'' with her inversion spell, and when it's reversed the villains agree to take the fall. Once again, Wanda gets off without so much as a slap on the wrist.

** ComicBook/AvengersForever mentions that Immortus was afraid that Wanda or her sons would become insanely powerful and change reality itself; and manipulated her and the Vision to get married so that she did not have any sons. Many years later, in Avengers Disassembled and House of M, Wanda becames the force that Immortus feared. And even more years later, in The Children's Crusade, she does have a son with similar reality warping powers... * KarmaHoudini: Over ''House of M'' and, more specifically, the Decimation event.

* NeverLiveItDown: Her actions in M-Day and Disassembled. ** The popularity of those two storylines, along with her absence from the comics between 2005 and 2011, means that it's common for readers to think of her as an omnipotent RealityWarper, even though her powers don't work that way anywhere except ''Disassembled'' and ''House of M'', and both those stories have since been [[AuthorsSavingThrow explained away]] as the result of an outside source amping up her powers.

in his first appearence, he fell in love with her
* LauncherOfAThousandShips: She's been the target of a ''lot'' of character's affections, including Angel, [[{{Squick}} Toad, Mastermind]], ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, Hawkeye, The Vision, Wonder Man, Nightcrawler, Doctor Doom, Comicbook/DoctorStrange, [[BrotherSisterIncest Quicksilver]] (at least in the Ultimate Universe), and probably more. And those are only the canon ones.

* HarsherInHindsight: ComicBook/TheAvengers 111, 1973. Magneto had captured the X-Men and several Avengers, turning them into PeoplePuppets. Only 3 Avengers were still free, Thor, Vision and Black Panther. So sure about his [[IAmLegion strenght in numbers]] over the Avengers, and with the Scarlet Witch dancing under his control, he said [[http://www.collectededitions.com/marvel/mm/xmen/images/AVEN111002_col.jpg "But they are decimated, Piper - DECIMATED!"]] (bolded in the original). He would surely come to regret those words: in ComicBook/HouseOfM the Scarlet Witch, mad and with reality warping powers, turned all mutants except 192 into normal people without powers, including Magneto. The name of the near-extinction of mutants? "Decimation".
