Oh, Wicked Wanda!

Looks like the estimable Frank Cho has done it again, with this cover that he's provided for Ultimates Vol.3 #3 (of 5).

The Ultimates is Marvels adult-skewed, directors-cut-styled version of the Avengers, which explains the Scarlet Witch's somewhat naughty ensemble.

A once heroic character, Wanda Maximoff was revealed as being bug-nuts crazy in Avengers:Disassembled and its "ho-hum" follow-up, House of M.

Now it seems as if they only want to portray her as a floozy!

Well, its a great cover Frank, but you guys can keep it. Unless you would prefer to shove it where the sun doesn't shine.
