Wanda Maximoff, also known by her super-hero name as Scarlet Witch, is a character that appears in the Avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. She has various mental powers, such as telekinesis, hypnosis, and can project powerful energy blasts.

She was portrayed by actor Elizabeth Olsen.


Wanda Maximoff is a pale skinned, brown haired woman in her mid twenties of Eastern European complexion.


Wanda Was Born in December 3 1988 is a very angry young woman, owing to hardships faced in her youth, blaming Tony Stark for much of it. This caused her to become very irrational, often viewing herself as a victim of circumstances and deflecting blame for her actions if she could.

She was very close to her brother Pietro and later developed close bonds with both Clint Barton and Steve Rogers.

Even after joining the Avengers, Wanda has never let go of her hatred for Stark viewing any questionable act he does as criminal and irredeemably evil. This caused her to be easily manipulated by Ultron.

Powers and Abilities

Wanda's trademark power is her ability to channel a form of cosmic energy derived from the Mind Stone. She can manifest this energy by telekinesis or shields. Her most dangerous power is her ability to cause people to see hallucinations of their worst fears.


Avengers: Age of Ultron

This section is under development. Information will be placed here soon.


  • Wanda and Pietro are only permitted to appear in the MCU due to a special deal with Fox. Per this deal, neither may be called "Quicksilver" or "Scarlet Witch" by other characters onscreen.


  • In a rather roundabout way, Wanda is responsible for all the damage done to the Avengers in Civil War. Zemo, the main antagonist, seeks revenge for the actions of Ultron, who was created by Tony Stark as a result of Wanda tampering with his head and filling him with temptation. Had Wanda not done that, the events of Age of Ultron and Civil War probablywould not have occurred.
