Scarlet Witch is from the Christopher Yost Animated Universe.

Wanda Maxioff, also known as Scarlet Witch, is a mutant, daughter of the ruler of Genosha leader Erik Lehnsherr, and member of his Acolytes.


She is the daughter of Magneto and the sister of Quicksilver and Polaris. She also has a crush on Nightcrawler. Wanda is a member of Magneto's Acolytes. She lives in the metal palace with her family, and does not appear to leave the island of Genosha. Although she is Magneto's daughter, she is an active member of the Acolytes and is powerful enough to enforce peace on Genosha. She is very proud as well as protective of Genosoha and Magneto ideals; and believes her place is faithfully at her father's side. She is also very protective of her younger sister, Lorna, and helps Magneto hide the truth of the cells from her. In this series she seems more estranged from her brother Quicksilver, due to her father's orders to keep him off Genosha.

At the start of the series she strongly emphasized Magneto's ideals and followed his beliefs of "survival." Later, after almost letting Wolverine drown, Wanda realizes that just because her father would do it, doesn't make it right. She still believed her rightful place was at his until he revealed his devious plan, which led to her her realization that everything she believed in and stood for was a lie.

Wanda also serves as Nightcrawler's love interest. Magneto introduced the Scarlet Witch as his personal tour guide, where she took him out to see Dazzler perform at a concert and lightly flirted with him before leaving. However, he has stated that she's "not the love of my life." He later reveals that her life is important to him, although she thinks just like her father.

When Nick Fury discovered that Skrulls invaded Earth, he kept a picture of Wanda along with others that he suspected was a Skrull.
