    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.

Reminds of that bit in Steve Englehart's Silver Surfer run where the Skrulls couldn't access their shape shifting powers anymore due to some event in an Annual storyline. Silver Surfer changed one of the Skrulls S'byll (a claimant to the Skrull throne) into having the ability to return the power to any Skrull she touched. A few years later every Skrull had the power back.
