Scarlet Witch #1 Review
Today were going to look at more X-men from the 90's. More specifically a spin-off of the character the Scarlet Witch. The Scarlet Witch, Wanda Maximoff, is the daughter of Magneto. After Magneto used her powers to do evil she turned good, and eventually joined the Avengers. She has power of probability as well as the ability to use Magic. So let's check it out.
The comic opens with the planet Amazar being invaded by a wizard named Gargan. Gargan kidnaps the queen, and casts a spell on her. Afterwards he rips his face off to reveal the Scarlet Witch. It turns out that this was all a dream that Wanda was having. She calls her friend Agatha, and Agatha tells her that her dreams might be because of her fear of being controlled.
The next day Wanda starts to train with the U.S. Agent, when the intruder alarm goes off. It's revealed to be Demon's looking for Wanda. The Agent, War Machine, and the other Avenger's are able to beat the demons. Wanda decides to go visit Agatha, because she fears that her nightmares might come true.When she meet's up with Agatha, she brings her to a crypt under an abandoned church. While down there the two get separated, and the comic ends with Wanda being attacked by someone called Master Pandemonium.
This comic isn't very good.The story's isn't very original, and the art is a very good example of bad 90's art. However the scenes with the Avenger's are pretty good. I don't recommend this but if you want to check it out it shouldn't be to hard to find.
