Doctor Strange Proves Scarlet Witch Is Not The Most Powerful Avenger

Many fans would say Scarlet Witch is the most terrifying Avenger of all MCU characters. With the range of her powers that viewers have witnessed in WandaVision and in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it is safe to say that she really is so powerful.

While it is agreeable that Scarlet Witch can go toe-to-toe with anyone, Doctor Strange disapproves of the claim that she is the fiercest of all.

In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the audience was introduced to America Chavez, and there was someone who wants to gain her power. After escaping a near-death scene, she meets Earth-616 Doctor Strange. The latter sought help from Scarlet Witch, and he recruited her to protect America. Soon he finds out that it was Wanda herself who has been assaulting the child. This depicted Scarlet Witch as a villain with horrifying powers.


Who Is More Powerful Than Scarlet Witch?

In Captain Marvel #28, created by Jacopo Camagni and Kelly Thompson, Carol Danvers sought help from Doctor Strange and asked him to teach her sorcery. The Sorcerer Supreme had to refuse her wish. He said:

If magic is something you’re vulnerable to and you’re trying to eliminate that weakness… I’m not sure that’s great for the world. Someone as powerful as you are should have some weaknesses.”

Captain Marvel is hailed as the strongest Avenger, and Doctor Strange’s refusal to make her even stronger already proves the strength she already has. It would be very dangerous to make someone possess a mystical power that can put the entire world under its spell.

With Captain Marvel’s excellent arsenal of abilities such as photon blasts, the ability to fly, and basically be invincible all the time, adding another set of magical powers would make her bigger than infinity.

Scarlet Witch and Captain Marvel are both powerful Avengers, and each has her own unique skill set. But knowing Carol Danvers could have had the talent that Wanda also has, along with her own strengths, could make her a bigger threat to everyone.
