And welcome my followers! Welcome to another round in the show:Guess… the… stereotype!!!Because trust me, there are alot of them here.But first to my initial confusion with the poem at the start. I know that two of the three golden age heroes referenced are meant to be the first human torch, Namor (for some reason), and apparently there was another Angel back then. The four heroes for the silver age are apparently the Fantastic Four, so it was pretty obvious. However this sounds like pretty bullshit "arcane" talk.Also, apparently this is not simply about the Scarlet Witch but about some other guy whose name I already forgot. While the drawing style is interesting, the story already lacked creativity. This guy met Morgan Le Fay and she loves him and gives him a bone sword and an ebon rose and he has to face Gaea's brothers that are known since the olden stories as the wolf and the serpent... and that is pretty much what they look like.... Pretty damn uncreative.When the story switches to Wanda and Pietro, she is dressed like Red Riding Hood and she and her brother are running from a wolf... subtle... And as Wanda (aka Scarlet Witch) is a gypsy, of course it is not an easy thing to determine with gypsies which place they currently call home. And if this weren't enough Margali Szardos (who is or isn't Nightcrawler's mother depending on the writers' whims) is also here, looking once again like a stripper... then again so do the others.In fact at about 20 % of the comic I had no idea what stereotype is the worst here, portraying this Eastern European mill and surroundings as if from 200 years ago, their old clothes, the stereotypical gypsy head scarfs and jewelry or the fact that they actually have a witch queen, who is old and haggard and the comic tries to justify that and the old caravans by stating that here the gypsies changed little over 300 years. And the wrinkled old gypsy witch queen (who was greeted with honors of the mountains, blessings of the river and glory of the moon), is actually a young, hot woman in a stripper like outfit. And that caravan? Seriously, why is it so small? Based on the outside it should be way bigger on the inside. And why does it look like a witch's lair? Oh right, because she is a gypsy witch.No idea whether that Moroccan sorcerer's garb is realistic in any way, but that African guy with the dead snake as garment to hide his penis, his muscles and sharp teeth is definitely a lazy stereotype. There is no way I give this the benefit of the doubt. Plus the story is pretty generic as well.Also, if Wanda's powers manifest in two days, why not Pietro's... oh right, this is a story full of gypsy stereotypes, so the male ones are not really important. Nope, let's have this gypsy witch queen have the dangerous serpent crown, because we never saw that before. Couldn't these damn writers at least make up something more original?And not only does Set have no connection with snakes (who ever started this anyway?). And in fact I had to look it up. Apparently in the Marvel Universe the Egyptian god is spelled Seth and is different from Set, who is here an Elder God from the Conan series. But why should he have created a divining snake crown if he is allegedly the god of chaos here?Well at least the gourd actually being revealed as severed head once the two stereotypes are gone is a nice touch.And as if this book didn't have enough stereotypes already: the three witches, of whom at least two are gypsies, have entrancement charms around them all the time (the snake guy mentioned their beauty and Taboo [yes that is really his name] told him what is going on). Because why would it be any different right? And to complete the idiocy:Wanda "casts" a spell, Cthon possess them and does some divination (stating that all of them will bear children of occult significance, why would it be different if all of them are magic?) and then leaves. Yeah, it was that anti-climactic.Also, I checked: This Gregor Russoff guy is apparently the grandfather of the Werewolf by Night Jack Russel, but how can that be if Wanda is usually drawn younger than said werewolf and here she is at least 10 if not 13? How can both of them be here if Gregor's first child is not even born yet? But I also don't get why no one notices the immense stereotypes with all the wooden wheels everywhere. As we know that this is not in the early 20th century where such wheels were still present.In addition, they state, apparently in regards to Wanda, that one who can bring science and magic together would have no limits, but Wanda never did that. Doom did, but not her. Or is this some odd hint towards Vision?No idea, because at that moment, when Wanda returned home, the story stops and we get back to the first guy:In it someone called Nagala calls on Apep (who has no connection with greed), Ophion (no idea why he is here, the serpent thing is not proven), Leviathan (not a jealous beast and rather a sea dragon or fish), Loatan (which may be a serpent) and Tiamat (may be a dragon but is not connected to lust) and revelation Hath (no idea who that is). As if someone just googled some names without thinking about it.And said Nagala was easily tricked to wanting to be more powerful than Set... you know for an elder god this idiot doesn't seem to know his underlings. Well that story is dull and generic, nothing special here except maybe for the artwork.So unless you want two dull stories full of unoriginality, lack of creativity and tons of stereotypes, skip this book entirely.
