It’s Marvel so fanbois will forgive anything they do because they produced enough good shit to overlook the bad.
I've got zero issue with that. I just wish the same people wouldn't get so worked up on these "issues" when they don't like the direction of the narrative being told.

Cough cough TLJ...

If you compare which franchise is worst at its worst, MCU comes out pretty well.

MCU doesn’t have anything like the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, for example, or Star Trek: Enterprise.

I thought it was widely accepted Wanda was one of the most powerful avengers (maybe moreso than thor)... She went toe to toe with Thanos.

This is why you don't do dork shit like read. I haven't read a comic since I started banging at 10, and have no complaints.

In the MCU movies? Wut? She's basically shot energy beams and moved a few heavy objects. Hardly been a heavy hitter. Nothing like these reality morphing magic powers we see now.

This is fine. It's the same with the comics. For decades she didn't do much with her hex powers other then zap bad guys. Then one day a writter got creative and did fun things with her. She was able to remove the powers of most of the mutant race with a couple words because a writter liked the idea.

None of this is bad. I just find it hilarious how triggered fans get in some sci fi properties over changes like this while never complaining in others. 🤷‍♂️

Avengers Infinity Gauntlet ending fight she did more damage than anyone but Thor.

Endgame vs Thanos she did better than anyone else- making Thanos call an orbital bombardment just to distract her.

If you are trying to argue that the power levels she is showing in WandaVision are in line with what she's shown in the movies maybe you should sit down with the show's writters.

They called out in an earlier episode that she's never shown these kind of powers before. The latest episode was all about "why" she suddenly has these reality morphing powers. The whole show is there to expain away that she had these crazy God level powers all along. It's a giant retcon of her powers in the MCU.
