Wanda Maximoff, better known as Scarlet Witch may have started out as a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in early issues of X-Men, but she soon became an early member of the Avengers and one of their most complicated and mysterious heroes.
While she may not be as popular as Iron Man or Captain America, Scarlet Witch is one of the most powerful superheroes in the world. Maximoff possesses abilities to alter reality and her chaos magic makes her a powerful sorceress. She has trained under Agatha Harkness, a powerful witch in the MCU and under Dr. Strange, Sorcerer Supreme.
Her latest appearance in the MCU with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness goes even further – with reality-shattering powers that tease dire consequences for the future of several upcoming Marvel Studios projects. With legend Sam Raimi at the helm, the film marks a huge turning point for the MCU – more details in our first-day review.
Fans were blown away with the reveals as Multiverse debuted this week:
While initially, her powers were undefined, it soon became clear that she was capable of extremely powerful spells and shape chaos magic to achieve whatever reality she so wished to create. In Avengers: Endgame, she can be seen giving a tough fight to Thanos and almost destroying his armour – she is only stopped by the firing of cannons from Thanos’ warships.
But that’s not all – during the events of Avengers: Disassembled, it was revealed that she had the power to reshape reality itself. She could change the world on a fundamental level and even when restored to its original order, she had managed to depower almost 99% of the mutant population by simply saying the words “no more mutants”.
With confirmed appearances in WandaVision and Doctor Strange 2, she could become one of the biggest players in the MCU.
