YMMV: Scarlet Witch
  • Author's Saving Throw: Avengers: The Children's Crusade
  • Base Breaker: While Avenger-Fans have largely forgiven her for her actions during Disassembled/House of M, for most parts of the X-Fandom she is still The Scrappy, also because she never got any real punishment while Cyclops (whose actions also happened under a mental breakdown and possession) gets hunted down like a criminal.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: She's been the target of a lot of character's affections, including Angel, Toad, Mastermind, Captain America, Hawkeye, The Vision, Wonder Man, Nightcrawler, Doctor Doom, Doctor Strange, Quicksilver (at least in the Ultimate Universe), and probably more. And those are only the canon ones.
  • Never Live It Down: 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 Reality Warper, even though her powers don't work that way anywhere except Disassembled and House of M, and both those stories have since been explained away as the result of an outside source amping up her powers.
  • The Woobie: While she's done some questionable things, it's pretty hard not to feel bad for her.
