Character Details

* Wanda was born with her twin brother Pietro at the Wundagore base of the High Evolutionary. Her mother had taken shelter there, though she fled Wundagore shortly after Wanda's birth.
* Kept in stasis by the High Evolutionary for decades, the two infants were later given to Django and Marya Maximoff, a Gypsy couple.
* Unfortunately, the manifestation of the twins' mutant powers as teenagers caused an angry mob to attack the camp, leaving Marya dead and Django injured and separated from the children, while Wanda and Pietro fled.
* After several months of wandering, believing both their foster parents dead, they came upon a town. Unfortunately, Wanda's hex powers misfired, setting fire to a house. Set upon by villagers again, they were almost killed save for the intervention of Magneto. As he saved them, they joined up with his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
* Now known as the Scarlet Witch, Wanda accompanied Magneto and his other mutants in their quest for power, clashing most frequently with the X-Men.
* After a while, Wanda and her brother left the Brotherhood and instead joined the Avengers with Captain America and Hawkeye, becoming known (a bit derisively) as the "Kooky Quartet". Still, they fought well against foes like Dr. Doom, Kang, and the Mole Man, to name a few.
* As the Avengers expanded, Wanda felt herself drawn to the android known as the Vision, despite her brother's disapproval. She also started learning real sorcery from Agatha Harkness, to better control her own powers.
* Eventually, she and Vision built up their confidence to get married, little knowing that Immortus, lord of Limbo, had manipulated events to cause the marriage.
* Shortly after the wedding, Django Maximoff revealed himself to be alive, kidnapping Wanda and her brother. Though they were rescued by the Avengers, Wanda and Pietro agreed to go with Django to Transia.
* While in Transia, Wanda was attacked by the warlock Mordred, on behalf of Chthon. Chthon then possessed Wanda's body and hid in Wundagore Mountain. Quicksilver tried to aid her, but was hit by an energy field and only saved by Bova, who then revealed the true nature of the twins' birth. The Avengers did save Wanda, but at the cost of Django's life, and both Wanda and Vision retired from active duty.
* Some time later, Magneto learned the truth of Wanda and Pietro, and sought them out in Attilan, where Wanda was visiting Pietro and Crystal and their daughter, Luna. He confided the truth in them as well, so that they knew he was their father.
* When the Baxter Building was threatened by Annihilus, Scarlet Witch and Vision returned to active duty. During the Secret Wars, Vision was made Chariman of the Avengers and set up a West Coast branch of Avengers.
* Later, Vision's mind was affected by interfacing with the Titanian computer ISAAC, and then Vision launched an attempt to take over all the world's computers, being stopped only by the Avengers.
* After that, both Vision and Scarlet Witch left active duty again. Their efforts at domestic harmony were shattered by repeated conflicts with supervillains. During one such encounter with the Salem's Seven, Wanda used the accumulated magical energy to become pregnant by the Vision, and she gave birth to twin sons, William and Thomas.
* After returning again to active duty, Vision was captured by the government group Vigilance and dismantled due to the machinations of Immortus.
* Though Vision was later rebuilt, his personality was greatly altered, causing Wanda much distress. In addition, her sons reverted into fragments of Mephisto's soul and ceased to exist.
* The Scarlet Witch suffered a nervous breakdown as a result, making her easy prey for Magnito's manipulations.
* She was then abducted by Immortus, but then rescued by the Avengers who helped restore her sanity. The souls of her twins were separated after Mephisto's defeat.
* With the changes to the Vision, they separated, and Wanda started to be drawn towards Wonder Man.
* Agatha Harkness was reanimated by Wanda, and with her help Wanda learned that she was a Nexus Being. She used this to drive off another Nexus Being that called itself Lore.
* Instead of Agatha wiping Wanda's memories, Wanda instead spent some time in counseling with Doctor Samson, resolving the trauma in regards to both her children as well as her husband.
* Eventually, the West Coast Avengers disbanded due to internal conflicts, and Wanda found herself back with the regular Avengers.
* (IC) Wanda returned to active duty, working with the Avengers in the aftermath of Ultron's defeat. She then began to become romantically involved with Captain America (Steve Rogers).
* (TJ) Shortly after, Onslaught was formed from Xavier and Magneto, threatening the world. Wanda sacrificed herself, along with the other non-mutant heroes, her own hex powers preventing her from serving as Onslaught's host.
* (TJ) Returning to existence thanks to Franklin Richards' intervention, Wanda started to reconcile with The Vision, rekindling their romance and renewing their vows.
* (TJ) Shortly after their vows were renewed, Kang kidnaps the Scarlet Witch, replacing her with a genetic clone. The clone is programmed with one objective: To destroy the Avengers.
* (TJ) Wanda's clone seizes control of Vision, using him to destroy Avenger's Mansion, injuring many and causing Vision as well as Jack of Hearts to be destroyed.
* (TJ) The clone, meanwhile, becomes more and more unstable, eventually generating a new world at Quicksilver's behest. This world, the House of M, has mutants being the dominant species and Magneto as supreme ruler.
* (TJ) Meanwhile, the real Wanda manages to escape from Kang's fortress, inserting herself into the rewritten timestream. She uses her hex powers to try and warp reality back, but is only able to connect with Wolverine and Layla Miller.
* (TJ) As the heroes make a direct move against Magneto and the Royal Family at Genosha, Wanda teams up with Doctor Strange and goes after her clone directly. Wanda does fight her clone, and has the upper hand when the clone suddenly pronounces, "No More Mutants."
* (TJ) With reality returning to normal, Wanda leaves the other heroes, her mutant gene disabled by the clone as a failsafe by Kang to prevent her interference. Instead, she goes to Doctor Strange, learning more in the mystic arts from him.
* (TJ) During her time with Doctor Strange, she gained a greater familiarity with the other witches, particularly Topaz.
* (TJ) As the New Avengers are formed, Wanda stays away from the team, still feeling partially responsible for the actions of her clone during Disassembled and House of M. As a result, she doesn't participate in Civil War, electing (like Strange) to stay on the sidelines.
* (TJ) During World War Hulk, Wanda helped Doctor Strange fight against the Warbound. She realized, at that point, she needed to be more involved again with the heroic community.
* (TJ) In the Secret Invasion, Wanda joins up with the Mighty Avengers, working with Stark and the others to defeat the Skrulls. Like the other Avengers, she is forced into hiding when Norman Osborn takes over the Initiative.
* (TJ) Norman Osborn decides to invade Asgard. The Scarlet Witch joins with Captain America and the Avengers to stop him. Using her sorcery, she entraps the Sentry/Void long enough for Stark to kill him with the Helicarrier.
* (TJ) Wanda doesn't destroy the Phoenix Force, but when the Phoenix repowers the mutants, Wanda's own mutant gene does not reactivate. She is left with just her mystical training... now far more formidable, thanks to the tutelage of Doctor Strange.
* (TJ) With the dawn of a Heroic Age and a new Avengers roster, Wanda has elected to be part of the Avengers once more, residing in Stark Tower.
