The Scarlet Witch:submitted by TurbulentDouble3084 to ScarletWitch [link] [comments]
Name: Wanda maximoff
Age: 34-35 yrs
IQ level: 128
Title: The Scarlet Witch,
Goddess of chaos.
Languages: They know how to speak some Romani dialect, and “Transian” (whatever that is). From random panels I read, Pietro knows Russian while Wanda knows French and possibly Greek. I think the ultimate versions of them spoke German, but it's likely the 616-version also know it too.4/02/2014
The Scarlet Witch is able to shape the multiverse to how she wanted it. and searching through the multiverse to find america to take her reality transporting powers. and able to enslave the entire multiverse and decimate the entire omniverse .
Powers & abilities
- name of Power: Life force.
As her powers likely come at least in part from the Mind Stone inside of Loki's sceptre, Wanda's abilities include telekinesis, energy manipulation, and some form of neuroelectronic interfacing that allows her to both read thoughts and also give her targets waking nightmares, probability manipulation. and being able to fight and erase the existence of the litr embodiment of cosmic order.
- Chaos magic.
elemental & energy attacks,
flight & levitation,
matter manipulation ,
mind & soul manipulation,
Various incalculable potential ,
made herself faster than the concept of speed. Etc
Fun fact: Her power isn't chaos magic, it's actually "reality warping" which was gifted by the god cthon. But she's still able to use chaos and any other kind of magic, because she was trained by Agatha Harkness to be able to use chaos and any other kind of magic.
And even if she’s facing against someone whom is immune to magic, her type of control upon magic itself make her magic immune to magical immune beings, meaning even if ur immune to magic, her powers in magic or not can still affect the person she’s facing.
Many are solely familiar with the MCU version of the character, which doesn't even hold a candle to the Scarlet Witch we know from the comics. Her powers go beyond just being able to manipulate matter and fly. She can warp reality itself, and get rid
of anyone she doesn't like with a mere thought.
SW vs ??? :
Scarlet witch vs zatanna.
Scarlet Witch is way more powerful than Zatanna. When one can change reality, they hold the upper hand in a lot of situations. However, Scarlet Witch doesn't just start a fight by changing the universe around her opponent.
It's impossible to downplay how powerful Scarlet Witch really is. Usually, it takes some kind of object of ultimate power to do some of the things that Scarlet Witch has done. Her feats during the "Avengers: Disassembled" storyline were amazing enough, but completely altering the reality of the planet? That's some next level power right there and that's not even taking into consideration that her little declaration of "No More Mutants" was revealed in Warren Ellis's criminally underrated Astonishing X-Men run to have affected the entire multiverse. Wanda Maximoff is easily one of the most powerful beings in the entire Marvel Universe.
Who can beat Zatanna?
Here are five heroes/villains Zatanna can not defeat, and five she wins against.
Defeat: she loses
Lose: She wins
10/10 Defeat & 0/10 lose: Vix Divyata.
The power of Vix Divyata is unknown.
Though their power doesn’t show how powerful they are in the comics, They are able to do more than just flight and or levitation, illusions, corruption, and mind control. They are able to do much more. Like stealing powers, stopping existence, controlling emotions, corrupt minds and souls, and even corrupt the reality not just around them but other universes and or even multiverses from long distances away, no matter the distances and much more.
And not just corrupt but control their entire multiverse and more than just one, no matter any amount and or size of the controllable matter or none. Controlling existence and none-existence either at the same time or not.
Being able to control Any natural and unnatural species and or objects.Being able to control fate itself and much more than any organic or not beings can comprehend. and beyond fate and balance being able to control mightier beings even beyond gods and or cosmic beings.
8.5/10 Defeat & 1.5/10 Lose: Scarlet Witch.
Scarlet Witch is way more powerful than Zatanna. When one can change reality, they hold the upper hand in a lot of situations. However, Scarlet Witch doesn't just start a fight by changing the universe around her opponent. She can easily control and or mind manipulate anyone, and even cause pain to them.
8/10 Defeat & 2/10 Lose : Doctor Strange.
Zatanna is a powerful sorcerer but Strange has her beat. If she was ruthless, she could beat him quickly, but that's not who Zatanna is. That's why Strange is going to win; in a prolonged magical duel between the two, Doctor Strange's magical skill and power will carry the day.
7.5/10 Defeat & 2.5/10 Lose: Captain Marvel.
Now a question arises how someone like Zatanna would fair against Carol Danvers. Chances are she'd fare well. Captain Marvel is a powerful foe, but one that has no experience fighting against magicians.30
5/10 defeat & 5/10 Lose: Silver Surfer.
Silver Surfer is a powerhouse that can put to shame almost anyone. There's a lot Zatanna could throw his way, maybe she could even do some critical damage. Unfortunately for the DC heroin, that's as far as she would be able to take the fight.
4.5/10 defeat & 5.5/10 Lose: Magik.
Magik is a mutant that's become the queen of Limbo and developed a knack for sorcery over the years. She may be a worthy opponent, but one Zatanna can still outmatch based on experience and level of expertise
5.5/10 defeat & 4.5/10 lose: Thor.
Zatanna's chances of defeating Thor are low. The Norse god in this scenario is essentially Superman, only without the weakness to magic. This means she'd have difficulties weakening his strength, speed or durability, all of which would prove the most difficult to overcome.
The Scarlet Witch Who Laughs was Wanda Maximoff from Earth -9602 of the Unsacred Timeline. She is a lieutenant of Barbatos, and the leader of the Dark Knights during the first Dark Omniverse invasion. She convinced The One Above All, the original creator of the Multiverse, to choose her as his lieutenant over Thanos as his vision was too limited by his ego. The Scarlet Witch Who Laughs continued on with her own plans, eventually acquiring cosmic power and becoming a greater threat than The One Above All himself.

Heroic OriginIn Earth -9602, unlike its multiverse counterpart, Wanda Maximoff was merged with Bruce Wayne, instead of his childhood friend, Zatanna Zatara. This resulted in Wanda having Thomas and Martha Wayne as her foster parents, and becoming the caped crusader known as The Scarlet Witch. Wanda was a member of the Judgement League Avengers. When the Green Skull decided to become a hero and tried to convince the league to let him join, The Scarlet Witch was the only one to oppose his acceptance, as she knew Luthor didn’t really believe in being a hero and was only interested in himself.
Joker’s AttackThe Joker from an unknown universe went on a killing spree across Gotham City; the clown had discovered that he was dying from the same chemicals that had turned him into what he was and wanted to take everyone with him. He murdered all of Batman's enemies including the Penguin, Catwoman, Killer Croc and the Ventriloquist. The Joker also killed Batman's friend Commissioner Jim Gordon, who accidentally sprung an acid trap in his notebook and melted his face off. Wanda sensed the imbalance in the multiverse and travelled to that universe by dreamwalking. The Scarlet Witch was later drugged by Joker, temporarily paralyzing her body but not her mind, so she could witness the chaos he caused without being able to do anything about it. The Joker bombed a hospital in front of Wanda and, to make it personal, shot dead the parents of many young children in front of her before proceeding to inject the children with an incurable, irreversible strain of Joker Venom. According to the Joker, he did this in order to create a hybrid of both Scarlet Witch and the Joker.
The Scarlet Witch eventually regained movement and, so traumatized and angry over what she had witnessed, grabbed the Joker and broke his neck. Unbeknownst to the Scarlet Witch though, the Joker exhaled a toxin contained in his heart, which infected anyone close to him if he died. In this case, it was the Scarlet Witch.
TransformationTwo days after the murder of The Joker, The Scarlet Witch and Superman talked about what happened. Though she felt no guilt, she affirmed that she was not planning to make it a regular thing. Superman assured her that the S.T.A.R. Labs branch in Metropolis had agreed to take care of all the kids who had been infected by the Joker Venom. When Superman mentioned how one of the children bit one of the doctors, The Scarlet Witch let out a small laugh which surprised both of them and alarmed Superman.
Three days later, Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Red Robin were training in the Batcave and talked to Wanda (dreamwalking through Bruce)’s worsening condition. Though they all offered to help the Bat however they could, Batman rebutted that he didn't want any help and revealed that the real reason he called them was that he knew they would be the first to notice something was wrong with him and warn the other heroes, something he couldn't allow to happen. And then he surprised them by doing something they were unprepared for: pull out a pair of hidden machine guns and shoot them all dead.
Almost two weeks after the Joker's death, Batman slaughtered the rest of the Justice League by using the stockpile of various villains' weaponry they had built up over the years. He synthesized a strain of Black Kryptonite and used it against Supergirl, driving her insane and forcing her to kill her own family before killing her.
On the Justice League Watchtower, he cornered Superman by releasing a Kryptonite-infused gas into the air and stated that he didn't want to hold back anymore. Bruce then brought Clark's wife Lois and his son Jon before him, and told the Man of Steel to lie to his family that everything would be okay, which Clark refused. Bruce tossed a shard of Black Kryptonite at the Kryptonians and watched as father and son went crazy and ripped Lois apart before they killed each other. As such, Wanda’s transformation into "The Scarlet Witch Who Laughs" was finished.
Ruling the UniverseThe Scarlet Witch Who Laughs, being an amalgamation of both Bruce Wayne and Wanda Maximoff, is able to dreamwalk to a universe where Wanda exists. She then uses her body and begins a rampage to destroy everyone in the universe. She utters the words “no more heroes”, and erases the meta gene from existence, wiping out the entire metahuman race.
As her world began to fade from existence, Barbatos arrived and revealed the rest of the Dark Multiverse to her and his plans to go after the true Multiverse as well. Believing her to be the next suitable Bat to help him, Barbatos made Wanda the spearhead for his plans to drag all of creation into darkness.
Invading the MultiverseThe Scarlet Witch Who Laughs began another Dark Multiverse invasion, realizing that she was destined to become the one who laughs. However, she had the ability to warp reality at a whim and was determined to use her chaos magic to invade the entire multiverse. She steals America Chavez’ powers and re-assembles the Dark Knights, enhanced by the Darkness. She lets the re-awakened knights lose and attacks the Avengers. Wanda watched her knights destroy the Avengers and the Justice League throughout several worlds, fulfilling what her predecessor started. Wanda kidnaps the Over-Monitor and links him with the Anti-Monitor’s astral brain, but realizes it isn’t enough. Another battle between all the world’s heroes takes place with a resurrected Barbatos. Wanda retreats and travels to The One Above All. Shortly after, Wanda attempts to sever the link but is ambushed by a resurrected Witch Hunter Batman, who obtained weapons that can nullify witchcraft. Wanda battles him and eventually wins, but is heavily injured. After the weaponry’s effects wear off, Wanda heals herself and speaks to The One Above All, who warns her that the cosmic entities will come after her. Wanda transfers her conscience to a lobotimized version of herself like her predecessor, and regains her strength. Finally, she changes form once more and becomes a thin being of pure darkness and chaos and renames herself the Darkest Witch. Eventually, the Darkest Witch grows in power and steals energy from Barry Allen. She remakes the multiverse to her image at her whims. The Witch travels to The One Above All, and, informing him that it was her all along behind the plot, reveals that her intent is to kill him. She seals The One Above All with Chaos Magic amplified where it surpasses the power of every other user in the omniverse. She summons her followers and they attack those that oppose her. In her victory, she is confronted by every hero in the omniverse and she reveals that she can erase everything in the omniverse from existence, so they must join her. The heroes use the hands from the DC Multiverse to attack her, and she plummets to the last embers of the Death Sun. The other versions of Wanda erase the Darkhold and its temptations through her Chaos Magic and the Joker’s chemicals from existence, and before she could erase the Omniverse, she is realizes everything that happened. She reverts to a humanoid form and breaks down, fixing everything she has caused at a whim. Unable to cope, she flees to a distant universe and lives in isolation.

0.5/10 Defeat & lose 9.5/10: Brother Voodoo.
Brother Voodoo is a respected mystical genius, by all means necessary. Chances are, however, that Zatanna would beat him to a pulp since her skill range casts a far wider net than Drumm. There's a reason why she's one of the most powerful magicians in the DC universe.
Scarlet witch vs Phoenix jean.
Scarlet Witch has the ability to resist the Phoenix Force and can cause pain to its hosts. When Cyclops killed Professor X, he took on the persona of the Dark Phoenix, forcing Wanda and Hope Summers to join their powers and take him down.
The Scarlet Witch has enormous powers as a Nexus Being and user of Chaos Magic. She has also defeated the Phoenix Force in battle.
Seeing how she could easily kill Mr. Fantastic, Blackbolt, Peggy Carter AND Captain Marvel, while simultaneously dream walking (which holds back her full power), really shows how powerful she is. Also, seeing how easily it was for her to kill Professor X, she definitely wins. Jean Gray is very durable and better at hand to hand combat, but considering The Scarlet Witch can enslave a whole town AND create the Vision from nothing. I mean come on, does creating a whole town from chaos magic not show how powerful she is. In the end, the Scarlet Witch has way too many hax up her sleeve for Jean to handle.
Can you understand the delicate mindset of a woman, a person, who has control over reality? It means reality controls her. Imagination becomes the enemy. Structure disappears. Reality, eventually, as she knows it, starts to slip away. Elude her. Blur. Drama, conflict, tragedy. They become excuses to change the world to fit the image that she has for it. Anything she doesn't like, she can change. No matter how slight. People. Places. Things. Everything is hers to change. But every time she does that, every time she gives in to her desires, no matter how noble they may be... a little more of her slips away. She loses herself. Her reason. But she struggles quietly every day to keep it in check -- to keep it all together. For a person of strong mind and body, for a person of pure spirit... the task of coping with these powers would be all-consuming. But here's a woman for whom, by the nature of her upbringing and occupation... every day is stressful, chaotic... and after a life lived with lost love, violence, and drama, what does she do? She says to herself: “I deserve happiness. I want to bring something into this world that is good. That I can love”. And she gives birth to children... even though she can't. She played mommy to make herself feel like someone she thinks is normal. And that ends tragically as well? If I told you a story like this, you'd say to yourself, this sounds like a person who has lost control of themselves on a deep psychological level. You'd say this sounds like a disturbed person. Now, does anything I have described not sound like Wanda Maximoff? „ ~ Doctor Strange Contents 1 Summary 2 Powers and Stats 3 Gallery 4 Others 5 References 6 Discussions Summary Wanda Maximoff is a Romani Transian sorceress and twin sister of the speedster Quicksilver. Once believed to have been mutant children of Magneto, the twins are in truth orphans enhanced by the High Evolutionary at Mount Wundagore. Wanda became a conduit of chaos magic, allowing her to shift probabilities and warp reality itself in the form of "hexes". After being saved from an angry mob by Magneto, the Scarlet Witch and her brother joined the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants to fight for Magneto's mutant supremacy cause. Disagreeing with Magneto's ruthless approach, the twins left him and joined the super-heroic Avengers instead, as the Scarlet Witch. Source: Marvel Database Powers and Stats Tier: Unknown physically.

2022.01.20 18:51 GoneRampant1 [Marvel Comics] She-Hulk and the 2010s: How getting put in a coma was just the start of an awful decade for Marvel's jade giantess
Introduction: “Today, I'm judge, jury, and executioner.”(photo for the mobile crowd)
Jennifer Walters is, or perhaps was now, one of Marvel’s premiere female characters, and probably their best feminine icon depending on how you viewed her. Sure, she was very sexy, and many artists really loved playing up her sex appeal, but she was more than that. She was a woman in complete control of her life (depending on the writer) and someone satisfied with who she was. She loved her green form and lived in it, not ashamed that she looked different from others; quite a change of pace from other odd-looking heroes who have been very self-conscious about their looks. She is a skilled lawyer, one that rivaled Daredevil, and juggled that with the responsibilities of being an Avenger. She was incredibly smart, caring, and built many positive relationships and friendships with others, even acting as a teacher during Matt Fraction’s FF run. She was also probably one of the most sex-positive characters in comics, having been in several relationships over the years and even engaged in several one-night stands. People liked to mock or slut shame her for it, but she never cared. She knew who she was and wasn’t ashamed. You rarely see all of these traits in one character, making Jen truly one of a kind in the Marvel Universe.So of course the 2010s had to ruin all that, which forms the basis of today's drama.
That’s just my interpretation of She-Hulk, but it’s one that I feel is shared by many of her fans. She’s a great character and an icon, one that you can look up to and aspire to be (minus the green).
The 2010s: Civil War 2 and Mariko Tamaki's run. "Soon the defence will rest... her fist upon your face.”Jen starts the 2010s on a fairly good note. She gets to join the roster of the prestige Marvel vs Capcom fighting game series during MvC3's expansion pack, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in 2011.
I think there’s a trepidation when a new person comes in and starts writing for a character, which I accept. I accept that trepidation, I understand it, I have the same trepidation when I see someone new is writing a hero or doing something different with a hero, but I think mostly people are just excited to see more Hulk.Tamaki's run did start out with the premise locked in- Jen, still recovering from her missle coma, and saddled with a lot of trauma (I think most people reading Civil War 2 could relate), but a poorly-paced first arc in Deconstructed didn't get things off on the right page. The general opinion on Tamaki's run is that while the premise of exploring Jen (a character who was always characterised by her confidence and assuredness) now second-guessing herself and fearing her Hulk state was an interesting idea, the execution was a bit flat- not helped by Tamaki's run being abruptly cancelled midway through the third arc due to sales dropping heavily. Disassembled did get the most praise, especially when it was releasing, but the follow-up arcs in Let Them Eat Cake and Jennifer Walters Must Die didn't quite land the same way (Let Them Eat Cake faced criticism for being essential a soft re-tread of Disassembled wherein Jen meets a person with trauma that reminds her of her own, she tries to help them, but they reject her and wind up being arrested). What also didn't help was that Tamaki's run was a revolving door for artists, with their styles never quite matching up to create a cohesive whole. By the time the second volume concluded, critics were far colder on the run, with some even dropping coverage outright.
Jason Aaron's Avengers: “She-Hulk smash! Heh... Imagine.”Jason Aaron has a long history in comics. Best known for his seven-year tenure with Thor (including that time Jane Foster became Thor in 2014), Aaron had become a figurehead for Marvel. But much like their prior figureheads like Bendis or DC's own Geoff Johns, the 2010s saw Aaron's stories begining a noticeable drop in quality throughout the decade. This all comes to a head in 2018, when Marvel announce that Jason is going to be taking over primary writing duties on the Avengers.
Then there is the work to add new dimensions or layers to She-Hulk’s past. Aaron reframes She-Hulk as a target of sexual harassment by villains and even fellow heroes during the Sensational period. To be fair, Jen has had run in with these problems, in particular, the Fantastic Four issue the comic alluded to and even Thing/She-Hulk: The Long Night. There could be an argument to make of Jen not being a fan of the unwanted advances or attitudes she experienced. On that same page, I’ve heard arguments from people who find this new angle to be refreshing. It adds a new context and new lens for which to view the old stories She-Hulk was in, touching on modern movements such as #MeToo. There is certainly an idea here the could be used to support a Savage She-Hulk (not like the one during the 80’s when she first debuted).Which means in trying to defend his poor writing of She-Hulk, Jason Aaron accidentally argues that "Being ugly means you don't get sexually harassed as much." In trying to address the meta criticism of She-Hulk being oversexualised, Aaron just comes off as a very dim-wited "white guy thinking this is what feminism means," by having Jennifer shed her beauty and rejecting it so she can rough-house with the rest of the Avengers. And given how Aaron was doing this while running roughshod over the words of Mariko Tamaki's run, it does come off as condescending.
However, #20 outwardly ignores a lot to make its point. Like, plenty of the Sensational period to the present: the smiles, the laughs, the flirting, the openness, the happy days. The comic, whether intended or not, ended up making things darker for She-Hulk, sort of like with the Justice League during Identity Crisis. Just focusing on the negatives and downplaying the rest feels like a needlessly cruel retcon to a happy character who has been dealing with so much trauma. This is also something that deserves a full story arc and exploration with careful thought and effort put into it. It is not something to be casually introduced and moved on from, especially not as a prop to justify a writer’s creative choice.
We then have the idea itself of why Jen likes being this new form and a big point Aaron makes: If she is ugly, she won’t be invalidated or sexually harassed by others. As the comic puts it, “Free to be ugly” or “…things are about to get ugly. Which sure sounds beautiful to me.” She’ll be free of her problems by being this impressive, hulking force. Nothing feminine or lady-like about her at all.
She acts like one of the boys, getting in on all the powerhouse fighting, while saying the old her would never be taken seriously. It’s a very 80’s take on female empowerment when there is so much more to it than just that. And by doing all of this, he cut out her wit, a lot of her intelligence, her compassion and understanding for others, and her humor. He removed the core of her personality for something that is lesser and lacks the uniqueness of the character.Regardless, the damage had been done. Issue 20 really only served to bring the issues fans had with She-Hulk to the limelight, and forever framed Jason Aaron's handling of the character as "He got pissy that Bruce was off-limits so he went and just made Jen into Hulk without any forethought."
Conclusion: "How's that for a little courtroom drama?”The first issues of the Rowell/Antonio She-Hulk run have just started releasing at the time of writing, but early impressions are very good. Critics are praising the back to basics approach for Jen, with the first issue especially being seen as a giant step up in quality after Aaron's Avengers run with peppy dialogue mixed with Jen having to keep track of the financial cost of a battle she's having with Titania. Fan reception has been very positive going off Twitter searches as people delight over She-Hulk's fun-loving self being the norm and not the exception for the first time in years. Still, it will be an uphill battle for Jen to regain the popularity she lost in the 2010s. The Disney+ series will bring eyes on her for sure, especially as Tatiana Maslany will undoubtably turn in a stellar performance going off her Orphan Black history, but if it'll be enough to match the glory days of her time with creatives like John Byrne remains to be seen. But at the very least, things are finally looking up for She-Hulk, which is more than she could say last year.
