in my experience, the more we do what other people want us to do, the more into trouble we get.

She was screaming it out there. Mentally. Like it’s all she thinks about - All New X-Men #12

I used to be pretty bitter about the whole “No More Mutants” thing. I probably still am, but not towards the Scarlet Witch anymore. Because, it wasn’t really her fault. She was not in her right state of mind when she did it. Wanda feels awful about it, and it doesn’t help that pretty much everybody always brings it up to her. It’s going to haunt her forever.
And if I can excuse Cyclops for killing Charles Xavier while under the influence of the Phoenix Force, it’d be really unfair for me not to do the same for Wanda for M-Day. 

Edit: Okay, 1 person vs nearly genocide isn’t the same thing, of course. It’s a completely different scale. I just mean, it’s still not something that either of them would ever intentionally do, given full control of their actions.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Featurette - Scarlet Witch and Black Widow (2015…

“Age of Ultron is almost [Scarlet Witch’s and Quicksilver’s] origin story, so we don’t have one of those montages where heroes learn all of their powers in five minutes. We are still discovering the things we can and cannot do. The extent of her powers isn’t fully explored in Age of Ultron. But she can manipulate objects. And she has visions, and she has the ability to share them.” There’s one thing Scarlet Witch isn’t, however! “She’s not a mutant!”
— Elizabeth Olsen on her character’s powers in Age of Ultron.
