Scarlet Witch is a mutant, a member of the Brotherhood of Mutants and later S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Freedom Force.


Wanda developed her powers early forcing Magneto to send her away to an asylum. She spent years there developing a deep hatred for her father. She took sessions to control her powers with fellow mutant Charles Xavier but he was unable to reach her.

Eventually, Mystique helped break her out so they could both get revenge on her father. She joined the Brotherhood of Mutants, a group of young mutants who were formally led by Magneto, and helped fight the X-Men, Xavier's team. Fellow Brotherhood member Toad fell in love with her, though she found him disgusting. She then left the team to search the world for Magneto, and Quicksilver who was protecting him. Eventually, Magneto used Mastermind to change Wanda's memories and make her love him.

She joined in the battle against Apocalypse and his Horsemen. She was the one who saved her father from the ancient mutant's control. When Xavier scanned Apocalypse's mind, he saw that she and the brotherhood became members of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a possible future.
