WHO IS… THE SCARLET WITCH #1
Writer: Steve Orlando
Artist: Rye Hickman
Color Artist: Brittany Peer
Editor: Sarah Brunstad
A dynamic sorceress with reality-manipulating powers and hex magic, Wanda Maximoff has been a master of the mystical arts for both mutantkind and the Avengers. Grab her full origin here by creators Steve Orlando, Rye Hickman, and Brittany Peer!

The Scarlet Witch, Wanda Maximoff was created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee as an X-Men villain in 1964. Originally portrayed as a mutant with the power to alter probability, she has evolved into a human sorceress, after experimentations by the High Evolutionary when she was a child. It's a confusing history, this digital gives the current version, including the complicated history of her parents, her children, of House Of M and even what happened on Krakoa.
