RAID 0 is unstable to begin with. Medium case scenario here (for legitimate use) is some data gets corrupted on a compute node. Run the program on two nodes; if you get the same result on both, that result is probably fine. If you're running RAID0 on any filesystem that isn't temporary or at least easily replaceable, you're doing it wrong.

Another that gets forgotten is the Scarlet Witch, magneto's daughter.

In one arc her powers run amok and completely change the whole of reality for nearly everyone, including most mutants.

* Spoiler: It's not 100% her fault. A retcon in Children's Crusade revealed that she meddled with forces beyond her control to try and recreate her children. Those forces caused her to attack the Avengers in the Disassembled arc and eventually House of M.

Power over the story itself? Blonde Phantom, She-Hulk, and Squirrel Girl. All three have comic awareness and can use that to their advantage (She-Hulk usually just threatens the writer or penciler, whereas Squirrel Girl defeats Bi Beast, Dr Doom, Deadpool, Galactus, MODOK, Thanos, and Wolverine). Their only male counterpart with this ability is Deadpool.

Invisible Woman has almost always been one of the most powerful and versatile superheroes in Marvel. She can knock out the Hulk. She can kill Wolverine. She can redirect a gamma bomb blast, saving the lives of all the other superheroes who have gathered (in that canon issue, her husband was already dead).

Precious metals are only worth something because other people want them. Because they think the metals are worth something because other people want the metals because they think they're worth something because... They're pretty, they're partly lasting and they're rare. Until they're not: aluminum used to be a valuable metal. Now I coat my armpits with it every morning, and half the metal objects I own are aluminum.
