In the world of comic book superheroes, there are a few relationships that can be considered iconic, like Superman and Lois Lane or Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson. The heroes are genuinely sweet to each other and appear to be in love, with both of them expressing a desire to just run away from it all together. It's almost poetic. But longtime readers of Marvel Comics know better. The Vision and Scarlet Witch have had an on-again, off-again relationship for decades in the comics, but there's nothing poetic about it. Simply put, their relationship has been a complete disaster and is messed up in more ways than we can count.
WandaVision ending and end credits scenes explained: What now for Scarlet Witch? - Mirror Online
WandaVision 's ninth and final episode dropped on Friday, a surprisingly straightforward 49 minutes after one of the most sprawling and ambitious experiments in television history. That's refreshing compared to the increasingly bloated run times of superhero movies and depth of Marvel comics lore. It wrapped up the season with just enough new material to hype us the heck up for Phase 4. It's only been a week since the first actual utterance of the phrase "Scarlet Witch" in MCU canon, because WandaVision , it turns out, is an origin story. The artist formerly-and-still-currently known as Wanda Maximoff taps into a new tier of power thanks to Agatha's jealous exposition and study of the Darkhold — the book of the damned. She has no coven, doesn't need incantations, and her power exceeds that of the Sorcerer Supreme hey we know him!

Even the most cursory Marvel fan has known Wanda Maximoff as the Scarlet Witch ever since her introduction in 's Avengers: Age of Ultron , but in fact, the name "Scarlet Witch" has never been said in any of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. That's part of what made the final moments of the penultimate WandaVision episode such a shock. Movie fans have seen Wanda use her magic as a weapon in the movies, but the full extent of her powers is on display in WandaVision , as she is able to engulf an entire town in a reality-distorting hex.
But it only screwed our brains further. However, do you have any idea what this really means for MCU? It served all, and it served just right. Wanda Maximoff is the Scarlet Witch in the Marvel comics, one of the most powerful superheroes, able to harness the Chaos Magic.
