With a simple declaration of “no,” she rewinds time, going back to the moment of the pregnancy reveal, and on this occasion things play out differently. That itself is something of an illusion though: what Wanda is really doing is maintaining the deceit, since Vision presumably is not truly back alive but instead a construct of her reality, and the beekeeper risked disturbing that.
Both ScarletWitch and Thanos, then, play with time in order to impose their will upon Vision; while Wanda isn’t a villain like the Mad Titan (yet, at least), the implications are at least a little disturbing. It remains to be seen how Vision is alive, but it's clear that his death is a major driving force of ScarletWitch's actions, with Wanda ready to do whatever it takes to keep him around now that she has him back.
Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maxim off had a pretty heavy Eastern European accent when we first met her and her brother (RIP) in Avengers: Age of Patron that was completely erased by the time we got to Avengers: Infinity. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who wondered, though; on Josh Horowitz's Happy Sad Confused podcast, he asked Infinity directors Joe and Anthony Russo about Accent Gate (relating to Wanda, that is, not Peter Dinklage’s Entry).
One is you’ll notice at the beginning of Civil War that Black Widow is training her to be a spy, and two is she’s been on the run, and one of the most distinguishing characteristics that she has is her accent. So if you’re going to try to disguise yourself or hide yourself or not be caught, you’re going to try to limit those trigger warnings that would make it easy for someone to identify you, which would be inclusive of her accent.
Clearly Black Widow as a red head is an incredibly distinguishing characteristic for her, which is why she has blonde hair. Cap, we’ve seen Chris Evans walk around in public with a beard and no one recognizes him.
There are simple things you can do to your appearance that take about 90% of your visibility away, and for us, it was very intentional that we would just keep stripping that accent down to show her acclimating and hiding.” Anyway, let’s not let this detract from that great (and horrifying) final moments that Wanda went through in having to kill Vision to prevent Thanos from getting the Mind Stone, even worse because it didn’t work, and then she got dusted.
John Bodega, Robert De Niro to Star in Netflix Heist Movie 'The Formula' Gerard Murray will write, direct and produce the movie, which follows a Formula One racer turned getaway driver. Wanda Maxim off is a native of Segovia who grew up with her fraternal twin brother, Pietro.
In an effort to help purge their country of strife, the twins joined HYDRA and agreed to undergo experiments with the Scepter under the supervision of Wolfgang von Trucker. The two received superpowers as a result, with Wanda attaining various abilities including telekinesis, telepathy, and energy manipulation.
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 two years, Maxim off reunited and reconciled with Vision, and together the two started living off the grid in Europe, forming a romantic relationship.
At the age of 10, while having dinner with her family, a mortar shell hit their apartment building, killing Wanda's parents. The building started to crumble, trapping Wanda and Pietro inside as they hid under a bed.
For the next two days, Wanda and Pietro feared the shell would detonate before rescue efforts could free them. Protesting Against Heroes This horrifically traumatic experience gave the twins a great hatred for Tony Stark, and later, the Avengers, whom they aimed to take down.
The Maxim offs dedicated much of their lives to this goal, including organizing protests against Stark Industries as well as the Avengers, whom they blamed for their parents' deaths. When the twins reached adulthood, Segovia had become a war zone, with foreign forces led by the United States of America invading their streets frequently.
What the twins did not realize was that the riots were orchestrated by HYDRA, who had taken up residence in the country and were using its upheavals to cover up their experiments. During one such riot, the Maxim offs were amongst the protestors approached by List, who offered them a way to achieve the power needed to end war in Segovia.
Wanda was initially skeptical, but ultimately convinced by Pietro to agree to the experiments to gain new powers. Rogers reported to the rest of the Avengers of the second enhanced individual on HYDRA's side before knocking out Trucker and taking him into custody.
Maxim off used her powers to briefly distract Tony Stark, tricking him into believing that a dead Leviathan specimen that Trucker had been studying was still alive, and showing him a dark vision where the Avengers were dead and the Chivalry invaded Earth from a Wormhole. With the HYDRA Research Base and Wolfgang von Trucker captured, the Maxim offs returned to Segovia, where Pietro provided for them by becoming a thief.
One night, Wanda found Pietro handing out items he had stolen, including an expensive Parisian dress to Drink. She mocked her brother's attempts to flirt with all the women in Segovia and warned him he would get shot if he kept stealing.
As Pietro began to question Wanda's decision to let Tony Stark go free, Hostel approached the pair and told them that “Iron Man” was waiting in a nearby church for them. When Wanda grew wary and questioned why she could not read his mind, the man revealed himself to be Patron, an A.I.
Accidentally created by Tony Stark who subsequently went rogue and began a murderous vendetta against the Avengers. Although they were initially unsure, Patron assured the twins that they would use their powers to kill the Avengers, noting that while he and Pietro could hurt them, Wanda would be able to tear them apart from the inside.
Agreeing to the alliance, Maxim off twins accompanied Patron in acquiring Ulysses Klaue's supply of Uranium. The Maxim offs entered the Salvage Yard first and shut off the lights before disarming Klaus and confronting him.
Having heard of them already, he noted that he was saddened to hear of Wolfgang von Strucker's death then mocked the pair for their reaction to learning of their mentor's murder. Eventually, Klaus told the pair that he would have no respect for them if Wanda used her powers to make him see what he feared, a cuttlefish, and he wished to speak to the man in charge.
Patron forced Klaus to sell him his stockpile of uranium and paid him billions of dollars. Pietro saved her in the nick of time, throwing Hawkeye through a window and taking her outside Klaus's base to recover.
Although she suffered great pain from the taser arrow, Maxim off wished to complete their plan. Wanda freed CHO from the mind control to halt the creation of Patron's body.
Refusing to allow the people of Seoul to be put in danger, the Maxim offs decided to join the Avengers. They eventually caught up and assisted Captain America in fighting off Patron on a moving passenger train.
Maxim off used her powers to put a defensive barrier between Patron and Rogers by twisting the metal bars inside the train while Pietro knocked him down. Upon seeing that he was betrayed and outnumbered by his former teammates, Patron responded by destroying the controls of the train before flying out the side door and escaping, leaving the Maxim offs and Rogers on the train going full speed as it headed to the end of the tracks.
With the train now completely out of control and heading to the middle of the city, Rogers ordered Maxim off to stop it, while Pietro moved any civilians out of its path. Mustering up all of her power and strength, Maxim off lifted the train's wheels off the ground and applied the breaks as hard as she could.
With the train now stopped, Wanda ran to her brother's aid, as he could barely stand after running so fast for so long. After a brief scuffle, Wanda was held back by Banner, but she managed to escape his hold, only to witness Thor bringing the body to life.
She watched in fear as the being initially attacked Thor before looking over New York City and calming down. The Maxim offs and the Avengers continued to be wary of Vision, with ScarletWitch noting that she had seen the destruction of the world in its head.
Eventually, Vision convinced the team that he was on their side and proved his worthiness by picking up Mjölnir and handing it to Thor. She and Pietro then agreed to join the Avengers stopping Patron and saving Segovia, where he would be enacting his final plan.
The Maxim offs took new uniforms and joined the Avengers on the Quintet as Rogers gave a speech where he informed the team that their priority was getting the innocent people of Segovia out of harm's way before Patron could destroy their homes and lives. Wishing to save the lives of her friends from her home city, Maxim off sided with her former enemies, although she was unsure of trusting the Avengers in the long term.
Upon arriving in Segovia, ScarletWitch played a significant part in evacuating civilians from Nova Grad, using her powers of mind control on dozens of innocents and leading them safely from the war zone. When the army of Patron Sentries began their attack, Maxim off took up a defensive position on a bridge, shielding innocent civilians from enemy fire with her powers as they ran to safety, however, the firepower of the Sentries proved too strong and knocked her back.
Eventually, Patron, using a device forged from the remaining Uranium samples, forced a large part of the city of Nova Grad to levitate so that once it reached a certain height, it would cause an extinction level event once it made an impact with the Earth. Maxim off struggled with terror and guilt over causing such a disaster in her own home, perceiving it as being her fault and beginning to lose morale.
However, Barton brushed aside Maxim off's guilt for the time being and simply responded that she needed to make a choice: either stay hidden and wait for her brother to take her somewhere safe or continue the battle. Barton assured Maxim off that if she continued to fight to the end with them, then her past wouldn't matter because she would become an Avenger.
Her confidence restored by Clint Barton's words, Maxim off stepped outside and saved the overwhelmed Hawkeye from a small squad of Patron Sentries, using her powers to pull them apart and throw them across Nova Grad. Soon after, a Helicarrier commanded by Nick Fury and Maria Hill came to the Avengers' aide, sending out Lifeboats to evacuate the civilians still trapped at the city.
Once the transports landed, Maxim off assisted in escorting civilians to the Lifeboats that ferried them aboard the flying aircraft carrier, keeping the women and children back until it was safe and ushering them on board alongside Barton. Maxim off, Quicksilver and the rest of the Avengers regrouped at the church in the center of Nova Grad where Patron had set up the key to the device that would cause the city to drop.
Captain America explained that Patron must not be allowed to activate the key as it would destroy the city and the planet. With the battle almost won, Captain America ordered the team to evacuate the city before Iron Man and Thor destroyed the key and Nova Grad itself.
As the key needed to be guarded against Patron in the meantime, ScarletWitch volunteered to stay behind, telling Hawkeye that it was her job to protect it. Sensing this, Maxim off dropped to her knees and cried out in pure anguish, obliterating the sentries she had been fighting with a single massive blast of energy.
Overcome with rage and emotion, Maxim off left her post to avenge her brother, tracking down Patron, who had been ripped out of the Quintet by the Hulk and had crash-landed inside a bus. Her action inadvertently allowed a single Patron drone to activate the device, sending Nova Grad plummeting towards Earth with her still trapped inside.
Maxim off accepted her fate as she plummeted towards the ground, being the only person left in the city; however, she was rescued at the last minute by Vision. Seconds after their escape, Iron Man and Thor averted the cataclysm by combining their abilities to vaporize the city, saving billions of lives.
They arrived at the New Avengers Facility and began their training under the leadership of Captain America and Black Widow. Maxim off joined the Avengers in an attack on the giant robot and together they managed to destroy Ultimo.
Approximately a year after the Patron Offensive, ScarletWitch joined her fellow Avengers in tracking down Crossbones and his mercenaries to Lagos, Nigeria. ScarletWitch positioned herself at a café, where she described the police station in the area, trying to uncover Crossbones' plan as part of her training from Black Widow, who was teaching her spy techniques.
They soon learned that Crossbones was planning to instead attack the Institute for Infectious Diseases and steal a biochemical weapon. The Avengers immediately rushed towards the IFID, with Captain America arriving first on the scene, followed by Falcon and ScarletWitch, and took out the outside mercenaries.
ScarletWitch lifted Captain America onto the third floor to subdue Crossbones and used her powers to vent the anesthetic gas out into the open air. Falcon and Black Widow managed to neutralize the mercenaries and secure the biochemical weapon that Crossbones had obtained while they tried to escape through a busy marketplace.
Crossbones taunted Captain America and claimed that the Winter Soldier had hired him to steal the biochemical weapon, once again under HYDRA's mind control. ScarletWitch arrived at the scene when suddenly, Crossbones pulled the cord on his suicide vest in an effort to kill both him and Captain America.
She managed to temporarily contain the explosion around Crossbones and tried to move its impact away by propelling him into the air. However, ScarletWitch inadvertently destroyed a nearby building with the blast, killing many of its occupants, much to her horror.
She watched a news report on the aftermath of the attack in Lagos questioning her ability to even operate in Nigeria. Steve Rogers tried to assure the young woman that it was not her fault, saying he should have taken apart Crossbones suicide vest before it went off.
Not totally convinced, Maxim off stated they were both at fault then, to which Rogers reminded her that despite the casualties, they were able to stop Crossbones from killing more. Vision apologized and informed Rogers that Tony Stark had arrived with Thaddeus Ross at the Facility.
Maxim off, along with the rest of the Avengers, met up with Thaddeus Ross and Tony Stark who introduced them to the Segovia Accords, a set of internationally ratified legal documents that provides regulation and a framework for the military/law enforcement deployment of enhanced individuals which included Maxim off. When Ross showed them footage from the aftermath of their fight with Crossbones in Lagos, Nigeria, Maxim off felt the guilt seeing the damage that she blamed herself for.
While the other Avengers left to deal with Winter Soldier and attend the meeting in Vienna, Maxim off stayed at the facility under the watch of Vision. Later, Steve Rogers sent Clint Barton to retrieve Maxim off from the Avengers Facility where she was being supervised by Vision.
As Maxim off watched Vision, she sensed a presence behind her and launched a knife at the intruder, stopping her attack when she realized it was Barton. With Vision subdued, Maxim off finally left with Barton en route to Germany to retrieve Scott Lang.
After incapacitating Vision, Maxim off and Clint Barton went to go retrieve Scott Lang who had been recommended by Sam Wilson. Captain America and his team headed to the Leipzig-Halle Airport where a helicopter was waiting to take them to Siberia.
After Hawkeye freed Captain America, breaking the webs with an arrow, the two made their way to stay away from the conflict. Iron Man then confronted them and told ScarletWitch that she hurt Vision's feelings, and they argued about why she had been locked up.
While Hawkeye was distracting Iron Man, ScarletWitch used her powers to launch several vehicles as projectiles in the parking garage behind him, finally burying him and buying them time to escape. ScarletWitch and Hawkeye managed to make their way to Captain America and his team, so they could get to the Quintet that would take them to Siberia.
ScarletWitch launched herself into the air towards Iron Man's team where she targeted Spider-Man by hurtling asphalt from the ground and nearby objects directly towards him, which he was able to evade. When Black Panther and the Winter Soldier engaged in a fight, which Black Panther had the intent on killing him, ScarletWitch managed to narrowly stop him by blocking his claws from tearing out the Winter Soldier's throat.
Having halted Black Panther's attacks, ScarletWitch then tossed him away from Winter Soldier, keeping him safe. As Iron Man's team pressed on, Falcon realized they could not win the battle and get everyone to Siberia.
So, Hawkeye confirmed that only Captain America and Winter Soldier could get to Siberia while the rest of the team stayed behind. To distract Iron Man's team, Ant-Man transformed into “Giant-Man,” focusing the opposition on defeating him rather than stopping Captain America and Winter Soldier from reaching the Quintet.
However, War Machine managed to evade Giant-Man and pursued the two until ScarletWitch started hurling large objects at him, keeping him from reaching the hangar. Vision destroyed a traffic control tower so Captain America and Winter Soldier couldn't escape but ScarletWitch used her powers to hold back the debris for them to pass.
Seeing this, War Machine used a Stark Sonic Cannon to knock her out, causing the tower to fall. Distracted, Vision accidentally grazed War Machine's arc reactor, disabling the suit and causing him to fall from the sky--paralyzing him upon impact, therefore letting Captain America and Winter Soldier fly away to Siberia.
After their defeat, Maxim off, Clint Barton, Sam Wilson and Scott Lang were arrested and imprisoned in the Raft, where she was the only one outfitted with a shock collar and put in a strait-jacket to prevent her using her powers. Tony Stark visited the prison to find out where Captain America went and was disturbed to see Maxim off's condition.
Rogers eventually infiltrated the Raft and freed Maxim off, Barton, Wilson and Lang from their cells. Vision began suggesting that they form their own life together, which she was unsure about due to the promises they had made to their respective teams.
Before she can give her official answer, she then noticed a SON news report about an alien attack in New York City and Tony Stark being missing. Maxim off attempted to escape with Vision and temporarily hid from Midnight and Grieve before they were found.
Maxim off faced Midnight and barely managed to hold her own while Vision unsuccessfully fought Grieve on top of a church. Maxim off prepared to be the final line of defense for Vision, until Steve Rogers arrived along with Black Widow and Falcon, who, with relative ease, managed to defeat the Black Order, but they escaped before they could be captured or killed by the reunited Avengers.
The group decided that they had to return to the Avengers Compound in hopes of developing a plan to help Vision and gaining more information about their extraterrestrial attackers. Trying to Save Vision “I think if it were exposed to a sufficiently powerful energy source, something very similar to its own signature, perhaps its molecular integrity will fail.
Suddenly, a swarm of Outrider Drop-ships landed outside the dome, causing everyone to go outside to defend Vision. Maxim off stood by Vision as he underwent the removal of the stone; however, she noticed the battle occurring outside, witnessing the arrival of Threshers, causing her to realize she had to be out there.
ScarletWitch then left the room and made her way to the battlefield, where she saved Black Widow and Okay by stopping the incoming Threshers and threw them on top of the Outriders. However, her presence of the battlefield allowed Proximal Midnight to notify Corvus Grieve that Vision was left unguarded by her.
When Falcon pointed out Vision being in danger, ScarletWitch went to help him, but was struck in the head by Midnight, causing her to fall into a ditch. Midnight then taunted ScarletWitch as she prepared to kill her, but was stopped when Black Widow and Okay intervened.
As the fight continued, the two found themselves overwhelmed by Midnight, who came close to killing Black Widow. However, ScarletWitch was able to step in and use her powers to stop Midnight by launching her into an incoming Thresher, ultimately killing her.
Vision then sensed Thanos arrival, causing everyone to be prepared, as they witnessed him appear through a portal. In tears, ScarletWitch reluctantly unleashed a stream of psionic energy into the Stone while the other Avengers made futile attempts to stop Thanos.
She then struck him with a separate stream of energy to stall him further, slowing him down significantly, before managing to destroy the Stone just as he was about to reach them. The Mind Stone shattered, releasing a huge blast of energy that knocked ScarletWitch to the ground and destroyed Vision's body.
As she laid on the ground, heartbroken, Thanos empathized with her pain, understanding the sacrifice of what she most loved. ScarletWitch attempted to stop him, but Thanos swatted her aside with little effort and ripped the Stone from Vision's head, killing him a second time.
With Thanos finally succeeding in his plan of collecting all the Infinity Stones, he unleashed the full extent of his new power. With a mere snap of his fingers, Thanos began to exterminate half of all lives in the universe in random succession.
At a point in 2023, the surviving Avengers had successfully retrieved all six Infinity Stones through Time Travel, thus enabling them to reverse the Snap. ScarletWitch, along with many other heroes, joined the Avengers in the battle against Thanos and his army by means of teleportation by the Masters of the Mystic Arts.
ScarletWitch arrived at the ruins of the Avengers Compound alongside Valkyrie, Kong, Main and the rest of the Guardians and Interwar. ScarletWitch used her powers to blast airborne enemies with large bolts of her psionic energy.
In response, she taunted him that he would as she rapidly overwhelmed him by hurling enormous piles of debris and powerful blasts of energy. After breaking his double-edged sword in half, ScarletWitch suspended Thanos in the air, peeling off his armor and slowly tearing him apart.
ScarletWitch then tried to shield herself, only to be knocked back by the blasts, sustaining only concussive force. As Captain Marvel collected the NATO Gauntlet from Spider-Man, ScarletWitch joined her, alongside other female heroes, in breaching through the enemy lines to reach Luis' van and return the stones to their rightful places in time.
ScarletWitch continued to take out Thanos' army, using her powers while in flight, mainly defeating the bigger and stronger opponents. After an intense battle, Thanos and his entire army were defeated when Iron Man wielded the stones and snapped the forces out of existence, resulting in his own life being taken.
After the funeral, Maxim off reunited with Clint Barton, who stood by her in silence, thinking of those they had lost. The two stood by a lake, and Barton expressed his desire for Natasha Roman off, who had also died to obtain the Soul Stone, to know that they were successful.
Bumps in the Sightseeing with DottieDisastrous Magic Shortchanging SettingsPreparing for Parenthood “With all the close calls we’ve been having, it seems the people of West view are always on the verge of discovering our secret. Due to childhood trauma from seeing her parents killed right in front of her, and the constant war -like state of her home, Wanda Maxim off had developed a very aggressive personality.
From being involved in protests to volunteering for Wolfgang von Strucker's experiments, and joining the Avengers, Maxim off has shown that she prefers to fight directly for what she believes in. Her passionate nature and willingness to engage in violence to achieve her goals led her to mistakenly side with Patron, which deeply influenced much of her future actions.
Her passion was partly fueled by her hatred of the United States of America and Tony Stark and was strong enough to have her side with a clearly murderous robot for what she believed to be the greater good. She was therefore unfazed when Patron killed Wolfgang von Trucker and was willing to send the Hulk on a rampage in Johannesburg, costing the lives of both soldiers and civilians.
Fortunately, she was not blinded by passion and was capable of reason, clearly being appalled by the level of destruction Patron was trying to achieve, and promptly sided with the Avengers to make amends. After getting to know the Avengers, she has since let go of any grudge or hatred she previously held against the team as well as the United States.
Due to her past affiliation with Patron and her role in the destruction of Segovia, Maxim off carried a deep fear of making mistakes and was frequently wracked with guilt and remorse. Despite this, Hawkeye was able to talk her into action, affirming her desire to fight for what she feels is right, despite what others may think of her.
In contrast with her brother, ScarletWitch displays a more serious attitude and direct anger, not only against Tony Stark but against anyone that she perceives as her enemy, such as Klaus and Thanos. Her anger leads her to be vengeful, as demonstrated when she volunteered for experiments to become a weapon against the United States and Tony Stark, seeking out Ultron's primary body in order to destroy him after he caused the death of her brother, and angrily telling Thanos that he could not understand her pain after she was forced to kill Vision in the attempt to stop him.
Maxim off became considerably more mellow after joining the team, as she is seen to be more compassionate, level-headed, and less inclined to use the manipulative aspects of her abilities, such as fear projection and mind control. Driven by a desire to fight in the front lines rather than as passive support, Maxim off honed her powers to become more combat-oriented, focusing on energy blasts, throws, and barrier projection, relying less on her telepathic abilities.
However, she also is less inclined to hold back in a fight, even against fellow Avengers, as shown when she hurled Black Widow several feet when she attempted to overpower Hawkeye. She has shown a willingness to kill her enemies in extreme circumstances, as shown when she telekinetically threw a carving knife at a perceived assailant before realizing it was Hawkeye, and when she purposefully lifted Proximal Midnight into a Thresher and shredded her to stop the latter from killing Black Widow.
However, in the aftermath of Avengers Civil War, she has put the grudge aside and developed strong romantic feelings for him to the point that, after she escaped from the Raft, she went off the grid with him to Europe and was in the beginning stages of starting a new life with him. Her feelings grew strong to the point that she tried her best to protect him from Thanos and the Black Order despite being at a great disadvantage, and refused to kill him until there was no alternative, resisting even when he himself agreed that his death was for the greater good of the universe.
Maxim off was horrified when Vision was briefly resurrected and emotionally devastated when he was killed a second time by Thanos, sitting at his side in mourning minutes before her death. While initially hostile during the conflict with Patron, Maxim off grew to have a strong bond with Hawkeye, who serves as a brotherly figure in her life, especially after losing Pietro.
Hawkeye was responsible for encouraging her to act in two separate situations where she is overcome by her guilt, that being the attack on Segovia and his attempt to extract her from the Avengers' Compound. In the aftermath of the Battle of Earth, where Hawkeye was in need of comfort after losing Black Widow, Maxim off was there, by his side, to quiet his worries.
Upon coming back to life and returning to Earth to fight against Thanos and his armies, Maxim off displayed an overwhelming vehemence towards the alien warlord, tempered by a subtle confidence. Her presence and movements were more deliberate and forceful, unlike the relative apprehension she displayed in her earlier appearances.
This was most evident when Thanos was trying to break through her protections, Maxim off gave him an almost mocking smirk before forcefully swatting away his weapon with relative ease. Psionic : As a result of exposure to the cosmic energies from the Scepter, which contained the Mind Stone, Wanda Maxim off acquired an array of psionic powers which manifest themselves as reddish, glowing energy currents and mist-like shapes from her hands.
Maria Hill described her powers as a “ferroelectric interfacing,” calling her “weird” because of them, while she actually manipulates molecular polarity, allowing her to alter reality. However, she has never received formal training with her powers, so they are more chaotic and unrefined, especially when compared to Doctor Strange.
During the Battle of Earth, Wanda's powers had grown so strong that she was able to single-handedly defeat Thanos, a feat that Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America via Mjölnir failed to accomplish. Sometimes, Maxim off will lose control of her powers due to emotional turmoil, such as when she unleashed a wave of red psionic force that tore apart and disintegrated surrounding Patron sentries when she sensed her brother Pietro Maxim off's death, letting out a scream of anguish.
Maxim off proved herself capable of destroying the Mind Stone, due to her powers having a similar energy signature. In her second encounter with Thanos, Maxim off's energy blasts were powerful enough to force the Mad Titan to go on the defensive against her and were enough to knock him back and make him stumble backwards even when he blocked them with his sword.
She can also utilize her psionic energy in a neurological way to manipulate the thoughts and memories of others, akin to telepathy. Maxim off started training this power by moving wooden blocks around while imprisoned in Wolfgang von Strucker's secret facility.
Maxim off's telekinesis can control a soldier's gunfire and throw him away, lift Captain America into the air to enter a building, hurl aside Black Widow and Black Panther, hurl cars at Iron Man and Spider-Man, extract and dissipate an enormous amount of gas, and even hold up a collapsed watchtower for several minutes to allow Captain America and Bucky to escape. She was even able to bring the immensely powerful Vision to his knees and blast him vertically down through a building's many floors.
Her telekinesis is powerful enough to bend uranium, as she managed to rip open the chest of Ultron's damaged primary body to summon his central processor to her hand, and was even strong enough to shatter the Mind Stone. She was also able to stop a massive line of Threshers and redirect them at Thanos' Outriders, as well as hold back a Chivalry Leviathan.
She then was able to use her telekinesis to hold back Thanos' sword even with the Titan using both of his arms in an attempt to overpower her, and was able to weaken its structural integrity, causing cracks to appear in it, before finally using an energy blast to cleave it in two. She then incapacitated him by lifting him into the air and began to crush his body, snapping off significant portions of his armor.
She displayed great degrees of precision with her telekinesis, such as when she used it to heal Vision by telekinetically repairing his body on a molecular level. It operates more like an enhanced leap similarly to Hulk, thanks to the force of gravity pushing her down.
Maxim off's power grew over time to the point where she could project herself, along with Vision, far higher into the air and for much longer than before. After her resurrection and empowerment, she was able to effortlessly levitate several feet into the air while simultaneously lifting two massive pieces of rubble, no longer needing to actively project energy from her hands to levitate herself, and later flew through the air to intercept a Leviathan before it could attack Valkyrie.
Force-field Generation : Maxim off is able to create a highly durable barrier of energy that she can shape and conform as needed. During her time as an Avenger, Maxim off learned to project her energy around herself, constructing a close-to-the-body psionic armor to protect herself from extreme impacts, such as falls from great heights or blows from super humanly strong combatants, increasing her durability to a significant degree.
This allowed her to land safely whenever she crash lands, as well as defending her against the might have superhuman combatants, such as Proximal Midnight and Corvus Grieve who sent her and Vision crashing through a glass roof after being shot down by Proximal Midnight's spear. When using her power, her irises sometimes glow a dark reddish color, especially when she concentrates it on specific targets.
She was able to use this ability to cripple the Avengers, forcing them each to recall the darker events of their pasts and placing them inside daydream-like visions that rendered them nearly helpless. This also allows her to control other people's actions, as she did with a considerable number of civilians in Segovia to aid in their evacuation, causing them to experience a form of sleepwalking and making them all get up and leave the city.
She can also manipulate the memory, thoughts, actions, emotions, and senses of others at will, as well as to induce sleep or pain and create illusions without any difficulty. Maxim off could use her telepathy to affect the Mind Stone, such as when she forced used her power to make Vision phase through Hawkeye to release him.
Maxim off can also use her psionic energy to read the Mind Stone and state that she felt Vision's consciousness. These visions can depict things that a person fears, regrets, or general disturbances, though the nature of it is not up to Maxim off.
Telepathy : Maxim off can read minds, communicate telepathically, and experience the memories and thoughts of others. She also used this ability to temporarily merge her consciousness with Ultron's, and it was thanks to this that she was able to discover his genocidal intentions and rebel against him.
During the magic show on West view, Maxim off was able to conjure a small crane to cover up Vision's flight. Teleportation : During the talent show she instantly transported Geraldine from backstage into the magic box.
Transmutation : Wanda changed her dresses and transformed a real piano into a fake cardboard cutout. Wanda was also able to make herself four months pregnant inadvertently, and also caused her to give birth at a logarithmic rate.
When dealing with pain from her contractions Maxim off inadvertently changed her coat several times and also accidentally brought life to a stork from a painting. However, when Wanda tried to get rid of the stork, she was unsuccessful, as the most she could do was cause a puff of red dust to erupt around it.
Weather Manipulation : When Wanda's water broke she caused a rainstorm to erupt within the Vision Residence. After the rain stopped, she generated intense winds to pour in from outside in order to dry herself, Vision, and her house.
However, with years of experience, she developed a fighting style in which she would infuse her psionic energy into her hands to greatly enhance her hand-to-hand combat skills and allow her to parry attacks from bladed weapons without suffering any harm due to her psionic energy protecting her hands from damage. Her combat instincts were also honed to the point she could react to and halt an explosion, parry attacks from Proximal Midnight, and catch Thanos' double-edged sword moments before it could strike her.
After being resurrected, Maxim off, now more powerful than ever and fueled by rage over Vision's death, was able to face Thanos directly in close range combat, managing to subdue and almost defeat him, had it not been for his air strike that knocked her back. Spy : Given that she was on the run from the government like her teammates, Maxim off was taught strategies to hide in plain sight by Black Widow, such as masking her thick Eastern European accent with an American one.
Musician : Maxim off plays the acoustic guitar, as evidenced by the presence of one in her room at the New Avengers Facility. She initially spoke English with a heavy Štokavian accent, and although it slightly faded by the time of the attack on the IFID Headquarters, Black Widow taught her how to speak with a convincing American accent by the time of the Attack on Vision.
The uniform included elbow high black leather fingerless gloves, and tall, heeled boots with red piping on top of them. In Avengers & X-Men: AXIS #7 (2014) and then Uncanny Avengers #4 (2015), it is confirmed not only are they not related to Magneto, but they are also not mutants, as the High Evolutionary was the one that genetically altered them as infants, giving them their powers, before returning them to their parents, the Maxim offs, whom they briefly believed to be their real parents again.
Lindsay Loan, Sasha Pie terse and Satire Roman were considered for the role of Scarlet Witch before Elizabeth Olsen was cast. Despite the rights to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch being formerly shared between 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios, the former owned all rights to Marvel Comics mutants, hence why the MCU incarnations could not legally be identified as mutants until the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Walt Disney Studios.
Joe and Anthony Russo explained that this was a deliberate decision made by the character in-universe to make herself less recognizable and that she learned the skill from Natasha Roman off. Evil Way, Ashley Lynn Blair and Delay Allen were stand-ins for Elizabeth Olsen in the role of Scarlet Witch.
Elizabeth Olsen has stated that she does not like her corset due to it revealing too much cleavage, compared to other female characters being covered up.
