I can't control their fear. Only my own.
~ Scarlet Witch holding off Vision


Wanda Maximoff is a native of the Eastern European country of Sokovia who grew with her twin brother, Pietro. In an effort to help purge their country of strife, the twins agreed to undergo experiments with the Scepter under the supervision of Wolfgang von Strucker's HYDRA cell, and achieved superpowers as a result, with Wanda attaining various telekinetic, telepathic and energy manipulating abilities. When HYDRA fell, the twins joined the robot Ultron to get their revenge on Tony Stark, but eventually switched sides and joined the Avengers when they discovered Ultron's true intentions. Although Pietro was killed during the ensuing Ultron Offensive, Wanda survived and became a member of the Avengers.

During the Avengers Civil War, she sided with Captain America and was briefly imprisoned in the Raft before Rogers freed her along with his teammates.

Over the next few years, Wanda reunited and reconciled with Vision, and the two hid in Scotland. However, Vision soon came under threat from Thanos and the Black Order, who sought the Mind Stone in Vision's head. The two escaped to Wakanda and reunited with their fellow Avengers. However, Thanos's forces later attacked Wakanda. Wanda managed to destroy the Mind Stone in attempt to stop Thanos, killing Vision in the process. However, Thanos turned back to time to seize the Mind Stone, and Wanda was among those killed by Thanos after he united the 6 Infinity Stones.
