The Scarlet Witch has been through some amazing transformations in the past decade. She is one of those characters with phenomenal powers that are criminally underutilized in the comics (like most of the female mutants). Wanda Maximoff can change reality on a whim. This power seems frightening and unstable honestly. But her storylines didn't focus on that until the fateful House of M storyline in 2005. Ever since then she has been awarded the proper sense of awe and caution she deserves. Her role in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron film will likely elevate her even further. She's finally living up to the Maximoff name. This figure is one of the most desperately needed re-dos in the Marvel Legends line. Her 2005 figure from the Legendary Riders line is bafflingly bad. This new figure has some definite flaws, but it is a long-awaited and major improvement. Wanda shares the "Maidens of Might" slot in this wave with Captain Marvel. Let's check out Scarlet Witch below!
This figure is beautiful, but I had a lot of QC problems with her legs. My joints at the knees and hips were extremely loose. Her left leg was also really bent in the package and required a boiling before I took these photos. She also can't stand at all on her own. I'm using a Kaiser doll stand in all these photos.
Scarlet Witch comes with two "Hex Power" energy flares. They are very comic accurate and great accessory for this figure.
Here are some images of Scarlet Witch from the comics.
Maybe I'm the only one, but from the moment I first saw this figure I thought she looked just like the character Liza from Gotham.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with her slot-mate Captain Marvel.
And here's the 2005 version. Ughh.
