Since the Scarlet Witch is probably one of my favourite members of the Marvel comic verse, I was really happy to receive this comic book as a present.
I thought there was a really good variety of different storylines from Wanda’s storyline. I liked seeing her interacting with different members of the Avengers and it was nice to see her with her husband… even if only for a moment or two.
I found Wanda’s powers to be really intriguing and I felt really bad for the fact that she was being manipulated and used by so many. The first set of comics were interesting because they showed a completely different look to her. I wasn’t sure I liked her with the shorter hair and different clothing… but it was really good to see her learning to defend herself and to learn a bit more about what it meant for her to be a Nexi.
I liked seeing Wanda interacting with Doctor Strange. It was nice to see that the two of them were working together, but that that comic had a different, more sympathetic ending. I couldn’t help feeling sorry for the creature that had been accidentally released.
It was good to get some details about the events that were referenced in the comic books. It was interesting to see Melinda and John together. While I would have liked to see more of their history, it was nice that the love between the two of them was clearly real. And it was also good to see Wanda with her children; trying to protect them and also thinking about how her husband viewed her.
I also liked the opportunity to see Wanda interacting with her ancestor, Red Lucy. I felt really bad for Wanda and how she was viewed by other people. It was pretty terrible to see her treated badly by someone who assumed the worst of mutants.
I was a bit confused by the comic where Wanda is pulled into the digital world. I found that artwork difficult to be drawn into. The final two comics, however, were really intriguing. It was nice to see something of Wanda’s childhood… and although I had read the final comic before, it was good to read again.
This has definitely made me interested in reading more comic books involving Wanda in the future.
