Episode 10: The Scarlet Witch
Me: *Reading X-Men #4* near the Town Hall*
Trixie: *Looks at me* Did you know that I am the greatest magician ever?
Me: Really? I always thought it was the Scarlet Witch.
Trixie: *Looks confused* Who is this Scarlet Witch and why is she better than me?
Me: The Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff, is a mutant who can make hexes and even alter reality. She is also the twin sister of Quicksilver.
Trixie: Well I can do hexes too!
Me: Anyhow, Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver were originally members of Magneto’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, later quitting his group and becoming superheroes after Magneto was abducted por The Stranger.
Trixie: Big whoop. I was a villain too, then I became a better person.
Me: Well, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver didn’t want to be involved in the Mutant conflicts anymore, so they decided to cadastrar-se the Avengers in Avengers #16*, alongside Captain America and new member Hawkeye.
Trixie: Well, I, uh...I’ve had a better boyfriend and a mais tragic breakup!
Me: The Scarlet Witch eventually fell in amor with the android Vision. We learn that the only reason Vision has emotions is because he had the brain waves of Wonder Man.
Trixie: Ouch...well, she doesn’t have daddy issues!
Me: In Avengers #185*, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are informed por Magneto, who was searching for his wife Magda, learns that he is their father.
Trixie: Well, she’s never been a villain afterwards!
Me: Actually, During the House of M* storyline, she warps reality to which mutants are superior to humans, but she turns the word back to normal, but she gets rid of 90% of all mutant powers.
Trixie: Oh geez...
Me: In mais recent times, she helped the Avengers during the Avengers vs X-Men*, when five of the X-Men were made evil por the Phoenix Force, she and Hope Summers had warped the Phoenix Force away for good.
Trixie: Okay, you win. Scarlet Witch is better. But now I want to take lessons from her!
Me: Trixie, she’s a comic book character...
Trixie: Then I’ll go to my local comic book store and go buy a bunch! Thank you!
