(Marvel Mangaverse: Avengers Assemble (fb) - BTS) - The Scarlet Witch became part of the Avengers and saved the world on several separate occasions. One time, Scarlet Witch and her teammates barely survived a fight against the mutant despot Apocalypse.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Avengers Assemble) - While meeting with Tony Stark, the secret benefactor of the Avengers, the group discussed the sighting of the monstrous Hulk (originating from the Ethereal Realm). Afraid they would be powerless to stop the monster, Stark revealed he had come up with a way to combat threats like the Hulk: he had secretly created four "Iron Avengers", gigantic assault robots the Avengers could pilot in battle. Stark had stored them in a hidden facility located at Billian Peak in the Chinese province Guilin. The Avengers went there to claim the robots, only to arrive and find the facility had already been unlocked (Apocalypse's Phalanx spies had monitored Stark's revelation, causing the villain to send his Horsemen to claim the robots). The Scarlet Witch and the Avengers rushed in to stop the Horsemen (Sinister, Archangel, Juggernaut and the White Queen), Wanda immediately attacked Sinister who appeared to be immune to her hex powers which only burned off his hair. However before Sinister could attack her she was saved by Vision using one of the Iron Avengers armors. Defeated, the Horsemen quickly fled, much to Apocalypse's annoyance who decided to take matters into his own hands. When Apocalypse arrived at the Avengers storage facility he was somewhat disappointed when he saw the "little" Iron Avengers machines, and thought he had overestimated the Avengers. The Avengers fired all their machines at the giant Apocalypse but without any effect. They then decided to unleash their secret power and transformed the four separate machines into one giant mech fighter called the Ultimate Iron Man. The two towering giants went head to head, but Apocalypse's most powerful attack, his apocalypse beam seemed no match for the Ultimate Iron Man's avenging justice attack. The villain was defeated. The Avengers left him lying under the rubble of their storage facility to deal with the Hulk who was terrorizing New York.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Eternity Twilight) - While on their way to New York the Avengers where surprised to find Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. were unable to deal with the Hulk monster. They decided teamwork would be key in defeating the giant. Upon arriving at the giant's location, the Avengers transformed their Iron Avengers machines into Ultimate Iron Man. But when they attacked Hulk with their most powerful Iron Avenger Mega-Power Punch, the fist literally shattered upon impact. The failed attack caused their power levels to drop fifty percent, allowing Hulk the chance to destroy their mechsuits with a single attack. The Scarlet Witch and the others only escaped the resulting explosion thanks to Scarlet Witch's teleportation spell. Though they were safe, the group could do nothing but watch as the Hulk continued his rampage through New York. A little while later, Thor arrived to deal with the Hulk and his master Dormammu. He called upon the might of the Scarlet Witch and all other heroes to gather enough strength to defeat the enemy.
(Marvel Mangaverse#2 - BTS) - The Scarlet Witch and the Avengers were dispatched to deal with the Galactus spores that landed in Beijing. Here, the Avengers merged their mechsuits to form Ultimate Iron Man in order to fight several monsters.
(Marvel Mangaverse#3) - The Scarlet Witch and the Avengers were seen fighting another of Galactus' spores although their mechsuits seemed useless against it. Galactus would later be destroyed by Captain Marvel (Marvin Ellwood).
(Marvel Mangaverse#4) - When Doom (T'Channa) attacked the United Nations and President Steve Rogers (angered the people of Latveria didn't receive any help after Galactus' devastating attack) the Avengers were alerted. Already deciding to arrive as Ultimate Iron Man, the team decided to attack full on with their Iron Avenger Mecha-Power Punch. However, Doom managed to drain the robot's mainframe with one simple attack. With the mechsuit crashing on Liberty Island, Doom ripped open the suit to get to the Avengers who were still trapped inside. Doom easily killed Hawkeye with an electricity blast and then attacked the Vision with so much power he literally melted. Even before the Scarlet Witch could attack Doom, the Black Panther and Captain America arrived and attacked Doom. However Doom once more summoned the Doombringer sword and managed to stab Captain America through the chest after which the hero was also beheaded. While Doom stood over Captain America's corpse she declared that from now on the world would fall under the rule of Doom.
(Marvel Mangaverse#5) - While Wanda was still recovering from the massacre she just witnessed, Doom returned to her flying fortress from where she killed S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Dum Dum Dugan, piloting another Iron Man-like mecha. Meanwhile S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury had his men collect the corpses of the Avengers after which he verbally assaulted the Black Panther for not risking his own life against Doom. Realizing Fury was venting since he was mad at his own inadequacy to stop the madmwoman Wanda came to the Black Panther's aide commenting Doom was just too powerful for them. Once Fury left, Doctor Strange's partner Tigra arrived, explaining her master needed to see them at once. The Scarlet Witch and Black Panther followed Tigra to Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum where Strange immediately offered Wanda his deepest sympathy. Wanda, however, bursted out in anger claiming she didn't want their sympathy, pity or apologies. Wanda continued that she would personally see to it that Doom's life would be taken in revenge. Doctor Strange couldn't agree more and showed her the last book of the Vishanti containing spells and incantations needed to halt Doom's abuse of the dark forces of techno-magick. While the Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange prepared for the coming battle Tigra noticed the Black Panther had left. Unbeknownst to the heroes the Black Panther went up to Doom's flying fortress to confront the madwoman who was in fact his own sister T'Channa. Sometime later that night Doom had intercepted communication between Nick Fury and Reed Richards who were plotting against her. To stop them, Doom summoned her Doombringer sword which allowed her to drain all mechanical power in the city, causing a blackout. Scarlet Witch, Tigra and Doctor Strange assembled on top of Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum in preparation for the upcoming battle. But Doom also sensed their pending attack and deployed a large army of Doombots (powered by the Dark Dimension). Scarlet Witch and her friends fought the Doombots during an aerial combat.
(Marvel Mangaverse#6) - The Scarlet Witch, Doctor Strange and Tigra continued their assault on the army of Doombots, besides using her hex bolts Wanda also called upon the elemental fires to destroy the bots. The full Doombot army was eventually trapped when Strange summoned the Crimson Bands of the Cyttorak, allowing Tigra and the Scarlet Witch to enter Doom's flying fortress. On several television screens Doom witnessed the heroes' progress; the arrival of the Fantastic Four, her brother in a prison cell and Doctor Strange's fight in the Dark Dimension. Doom however, had failed to realize the Scarlet Witch and Tigra had already invaded her castle and revealed their presence to her. The two heroines didn't seem to pose any real threat as Doom quickly took hold of them and summoned her Doombringer sword. Just then Doctor Strange successfully opened an astral doorway to Eternity, thereby severing Doom's connection to the Dark Dimension. At the same time, the Fantastic Four had defeated the Doom Mecha and had her brother escape from his imprisonment. While the Black Panther fought Doom, Wanda used the distraction to grab Doom's Doombringer sword which she used to stab Doom in the chest, noting she did it for Captain America. After assuring the heroes she would return one day, Doom died.
The following morning the heroes were still present on the flying fortress when Nick Fury arrived to deal with the aftermath. The Scarlet Witch was present when Fury offered his apology to the Black Panther for distrusting him. Fury went on to explain that as far as the public was concerned President Rogers was injured at the U.N. and would undergo emergency treatment for the foreseeable future and vice-president Barnes had taken over.
Comments: Created by Udon (writer & art).
It's been unrevealed if Wanda is related to Pietro in the Mangaverse. Pietro appeared alongside the Inhuman royal family in Marvel Mangaverse#2 (2002). However, in the Mangaverse the Inhumans are an alien race originating from the planet Attilan which was consumed by Galactus.
It never ceases to amaze me how some artists portray female comicbook characters... sigh.
Due to the Asian specific nature of the Mangaverse reality, it goes without saying that while characters might look similar to their 616 counterparts, they most likely will have distinctly different names, codenames or powers. Therefore we will only list the names when they have been used in the comics.
