We all remember when the Scarlet Witch uttered the three words that would change the landscape of the Marvel Universe: "No More Mutants!" But what if she said something different? And what of the consequences...? In a world without great power, who bears the burden of responsibility? Who will stand up to an enemy who fills the vacuum of power and whose hatred is unparalleled? What if Scarlet Witch had ended the HOUSE OF M by saying "NO MORE POWERS"?

    All-in-all, this is a really good and refreshing read. Pick it up at your local comic shop this Wednesday; it's a comic that reminds us of the power people have when they choose to stand together as one. Read Full Review

    I think the one saving grace of this entire issue is the backup tale, which is part one of "What if the Runaways Became the Young Avengers?" The concept sounds a bit silly at first, but C.B. Cebulski really makes the most of it. He has a nice handle on the Runaways, for one thing. The art here isn't terribly impressive either, but it gets the job done. Most notably, the short, fractured way in which Cebulski is telling this story appears to work in its favor. I'd say it's a sign Marvel needs to alter its approach to these What If? books. Rather than attempt a series of swift one-shot tales, they might want to look into a more serialized approach. After so many years of resounding disappointment, something sure needs to change.
