Wanda was a member of Magneto's Acolytes. She lived in the metal palace with her family (House of Magnus), and did not appear to want to leave Genosha.[1][2]

As part of the Acolytes, and being powerful enough, she ensured peace on the island. She was very proud as well as protective of Genosoha and Magneto's ideals, and believed her place was faithfully at her father's side.[1] She is also very protective of her younger sister, Lorna, and helps Magneto hide the truth of the cells from her.[citation needed] She seems estranged from her brother Quicksilver, due to her father's orders to keep him off Genosha.[3]

Before Nightcrawler arrived at Genosha, she strongly emphasized Magneto's ideals and followed his beliefs of "survival". Despite this, during Kurt's guided tour with Wanda, the two seemed to get along and she lightly flirted with him before leaving. After Kurt's discovery of the mutant prisons however, he didn't want anything else to do with her,[1] even later claiming "she's NOT the love of my life".[2]

Later, after almost letting Wolverine drown, Wanda realizes that just because her father would do something, doesn't make it right, and she and Kurt part on good terms.[2] She still believed her rightful place was at his until he revealed his devious plan, which led to her realization that everything she believed in and stood for was a lie.[citation needed]

Meet with the Avengers

Wanda along with his father and brother, went to Avengers Mansion, to claim the Wasp for the Brotherhood of Mutants, believing that she is a mutant, due to a rumor in the news.[citation needed]

Facing the Avengers, Wanda uses her Hex Blasts in a garbage can, causing it to explode and thus defeating the Wasp, who understand the reason behind their arrival, claiming that she is not a mutant, while Magneto attacks the anti-mutant protestors were in the mansion because of what one of them threw a brick at him.[citation needed]

This makes Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver be made against his father, who imprisons them with pieces of metal, almost strangling her daughter with her​ powers, being released by the Wasp, firing its sting to Magneto.[citation needed]

When the Avengers are released from the metal bars, attacked Magneto, who escaped when Wanda and Pietro attacked him, demanding what should be a better way, because anger makes him blind and cruel as those who fight, but Magneto, claiming that Mutantkind is the best way, and when the war came, they will see the truth, and be on your side, or be destroyed.[citation needed]

After the attack, Iron Man tells Wanda and Pietro, who have to come with them, and Jan explains that she's not a mutant, but the Avengers would not mind if it were, also speaking to the crowd that regardless of whether they are, they fight against the bad guys together, Quicksilver grabs the Scarlet Witch and escape, but not without telling the Avengers that they have given the siblings something to think about.[citation needed]

Skrull Invasion

While Fury was investigating the photos of superheroes and supervillains of who were replaced by the Skrulls, Scarlet Witch was seen along with her father Magneto.[citation needed]

Powers and Abilities
