As Scarlet Witch, Wanda possesses a range of formidable powers, including telekinesis, energy manipulation, and reality warping. Her abilities were further developed under the guidance of the Avengers, making her a key member of the team.

Wanda's character arc in the MCU is marked by personal tragedy, including the loss of her twin brother Pietro and her love interest Vision. Her grief and trauma played a central role in the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. In WandaVision, she created a reality called the "Hex" as a coping mechanism, exploring her powers and attempting to resurrect Vision. This event had significant consequences for the MCU.

Throughout her journey, Wanda's character evolved from a survivor and victim of experimentation into a powerful and emotionally complex hero. She became known as the Scarlet Witch, embracing her mystical and reality-altering abilities.
