Sister of Quicksilver. Wife of Vision. Daughter of Magneto (or not). X-Man. Avenger. We know these facts about Wanda Maxmimoff, but really, who is Scarlet Witch? Ahead of her first-ever solo series, we sat down with writer James Robinson to discuss how he’ll explore what makes Wanda really tick.
Whoa. We’ve been getting dribs and drabs of reveals for Marvel’s upcoming universal reboot over the past week, but it looks like the jackpot has just hit: Comics retailers across the world have received previews for 45(!) of Marvel’s new series, and it sounds like it’s a whole lot of crazy.
