In Children's Crusade, the Scarlet Witch repowered Rictor. It was implied that Wanda would repower whomever asked her for their powers again. But to my knowledge, outside of Children's Crusade, no one has mentioned this. You'd think that word of Wanda's abilities would spread like wildfire among the depowered. I could understand why someone like Blob might not approach Wanda - but someone like Moonstar should definitely be repowered by now. No excuses.
Using Wanda as a repowering engine could also solve a problem for the writers. Six million mutants couldn't all make the journey to NYC. But thousands could. Morrison's idea of millions of mutants made the Decimation desirable in the first place (from a writer standpoint). No one wants to go back to those days. But most of the American-based mutants should have been repowered by now.
