We may have seen Wanda Maximoff finally turn into the Scarlet Witch in the finale but what we still don’t know is whether she will also become a villain or not? Many fans may have already speculated this character development. So, we will give you reasons why this theory is not only acceptable but also plausible. It is very much possible to witness the rise of a villain, Scarlet Witch from the very lovable character of Wanda. Wanda has been considered nothing but a hero given all the people and things she lost throughout the series but maybe, it’s time for Scarlet Witch to take over. Wanda captured people and restructured their entire lives as per her own wish to cope up with her sadness. Well, that does not really portray her as a hero now, does it? No, Wanda used people to foreplay in her TV Sitcom also, making them her pawns. Wanda’s very lovable character was ignorant of all the discomfort she was causing. Any efforts made to make things better were also ignored by her. But, that’s not all!!!
One for All the Grief
Wanda may have gotten an identity by the end of the series finale but what about all the grief that she has still not dealt with? Wanda escaped reality through the magical doors of the TV sitcom she created for herself. Now that the sitcom is not an option, Wanda will have to deal with her losses all on her own. Wanda did never find the opportunity to heal from the loss of Vision or even have a decent burial for him. Did Wanda ever get over that? I think not. While she has been living in isolation for long now, we can all expect something dreadful to be on its way. Scarlet Witch has got her hands on the Darkhold. All this unresolved trauma and grief can cook up something really dangerous through the help of the Darkhold. The Darkhold will not only increase Wanda’s powers but it could also be her key to the EVIL!! The isolation and the Darkhold have a greater truth to reveal than just Wanda’s identity. Maybe, it’s her true villainous identity.
The Dark Holds the Darkhold: The Scarlet Witch Villain Aspect
The series finale has revealed to all the viewers that Scarlet Witch will now have the Darkhold. That could be the gateway for trouble or some serious damage. All the power that comes from the Darkhold is now resting in the hands of one person – SCARLET WITCH. We all know the book is like the gospel of the damned and no points for guessing who the damned is? Wanda has already proved to us that she could go to any extent to deal with things as she did when she created Hex. Now, with Darkhold she holds the knowledge to sorcery. She can now make the prophecy where she will be destroying the world come true. The Darkhold is known to make people evil and corrupt their intentions to bring out the worst in them. So, it won’t be wrong to guess that the book holds similar powers in Wanda’s hands. Wanda’s efforts to make it all good would be now ruled off by Scarlet Witch and thus, we can expect a villain to return from the isolated mountains.
The Loss of the Twins
Wanda may have overcome a lot of struggles and bad days but her twins? No. Wanda conceives Billy and Tommy in Hex which makes them magical too. So since, they are not technically alive in the show, they may still exist somewhere in the multiuniverse. If that is true, Wanda may want to meet them or find them or SAVE THEM. Agatha’s prophecy of the Scarlet Witch destroying the world could be a result of this. Wanda would obviously go ahead and ruin everything that comes in between her and her twins. So, it may not really be far fetched to think of this leading to the destruction of the world or to her becoming the villain.
