Agatha Harkness is a powerful sorceress. She posed as Wanda Maximoff's nosy neighbor "Agnes" inside the Westview anomaly.[2]

Powers

  • Sorcery: Agatha Harkness is a powerful sorceress capable of manipulating mystical energy for a variety of effects, such as casting spells. Her mystic power manifests as purple energy.[2]
    • Telekinesis: Harkness was able to close a door with a single movement of her fingers.[2]
    • Youth Stealing: Harkness was able to absorb the youth of several magical members of her village, including her own mother.
    • Telepathy: She was able to make Herb, her neighbor, go along with her plan in confusing Vision.[2]
    • Flight: Harkness arrived flying to Westview.[2]
    • Transmutation: Harkness was able to change her appearance and witch costume for that of a normal neighbor.[2]
    • Telepathic Immunity: Agatha is immune to telepathic intrusion, as Billy Maximoff is unable to sense her thoughts.[2]

Abilities

  • Master Manipulator: Agatha was able to manipulate events within the Westview Anomaly for at least a week, right down to the plots of the sitcom, all while pretending to be enthralled by Wanda Maximoff and hiding her true nature.


  • Kathryn Hahn portrays Agatha Harkness on the Disney+ series WandaVision.
    • Hahn is also credited as a performer of her character's theme "Agatha All Along."
  • Hahn previously voiced Doc Ock in the film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
  • Agatha says her wedding anniversary is on June 2nd,[1] which could be a reference to the date in real-world history when the first person executed for witchcraft was convicted and sentenced to death during the Salem Witch Trials, which is a significant part of Agatha Harkness' backstory in the comics. This version of Agatha is also a Salem Witch, but it's unclear if she was part of the Salem Witch Trials.[3]
  • Agatha alludes to a husband named Ralph throughout the episodes of WandaVision, but he isn't actually seen. This is an homage to classic sitcoms, where the neighbor would make allusions to a spouse that never appears on the show.
  • The exterior of Agatha's house is the same as the house used by the main witch character in the 1960s sitcom Bewitched.[4]
