Unfortunately, she 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.

Powers and Abilities

Wanda's unique mutant ability allows her to harness and manipulate the force of probability. Her power, already dangerous in its own right, is easily tainted by her anger and fury, making her all the more deadly. She can interfere with other mutants powers causing them to go haywire, temporarily remove them rendering the mutant powerless, or cause attacks to rebound back at the original attacker. She can manifest "hex bolts" as auras of blue energy allowing her to trap opponents and disrupt energy fields as seen in the episode "Day Of Reckoning, Part 2" when she used her "hex bolts" to Knock out her brother Pietro, disrupt Magneto's powers, and then trap the X-Copter shutting it down and pushing it away. She can generally cause bad luck for people, making them trip or drop things when under the influence of her powers. Wanda's powers also affect inanimate objects - she can cause things to break, combust, explode, heat up, move (sometimes to accomplish a specific goal in a manner similar to telekinesis) and even come to life as seen in the episode "The Stuff Of Villains" when Wanda caused several street lamps and two cars on center blocks to actually come to life and attack a group of thugs.

Wanda must have free usage of her hands in order to use her powers as she uses a lot of hand and finger motions to channel them.




Scarlet Witch was voiced by Kelly Sheridan.

Scarlet Witch was redesigned for the series to give her a gothic appearance, though not quite as goth as Rogue.
