How Wanda Maximoff became a witch

Wanda Maximoff has always been a controversial character. Her first appearances in the X-Men were as a villain alongside her brother, reluctantly in cahoots with the villainous Silver Age Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Later, she appeared in the Avengers. In an unprecedented move, creator Stan Lee made the decision to replace most of the former lineup of the team with characters that had initially appeared as villains, including Wanda, her brother Pietro, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. This threw fans into an uproar, although now it is considered simply to be canon backstory for the team. Although many of them teetered on the line between good and evil on various occasions, the story of the Avengers would be quite a different thing without their presence.

Still, one of the most controversial aspects of Wanda Maximoff’s character is one of the easiest to dispel: her claim to the title of “witch.” Over time, questions about her right to refer to herself via such a term have arisen semi-regularly in letters columns. In the MCU, this might be a valid complaint, but in the comics, Wanda has been a witch for many years now, and rates among the most powerful mystic characters. Vacillating between her life as an Avenger and her dedication to witchcraft, she is easily one of comics’ most prominent witches.
