I've got to say I'm a huge Scarlet Witch nerd, so I'm excited that she's coming back in some way. I've loved what Bendis has done with her, but I'm excited to see what the Children's Crusade has in store.

It's even better to have Heinberg back in comics. I'd certainly put him alongside Brian K. Vaughn and Joss Whedon as people who've worked both in television and comics who have really enriched comics by taking part. It's not something you can say of everyone whose worked in both Hollywood and comics, Kevin Smith (whose movies I love but whose comics have never quite hit with me) comes to mind.

I would certainly be happy if Heinberg got to play with the Young Avengers every year or two. As much as any company's characters are someone's, they're really his.
