I don't often see derailleurs bent, even on abused bikes. They're all pretty tough. The hangers are supposed to bend before the derailleur. That's the point of them.
Neither of the pulleys are coplanar with the cogs or with each other. They will straighten enough to ride, but get bent with nothing more than really hard pedaling in lower gears.
