Marvel Comics Confirms Scarlet Witch’s Best Romance Is Not With Vision


Scarlet Witch and Vision are one of the most iconic couples in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From their first appearance in the 2015 Avengers: Age of Ultron up to their last show together, Disney+ WandaVision, one cannot deny the chemistry between them and the turbulent relationship they had.

Now that Vision is gone, and Scarlet Witch has tread on her own path, romance may no longer be an option. But, most fans do not know that Vision was not her greatest lover. Wanda Maximoff’s best romance was with Brother Voodoo.

Who Put The Spell On Scarlet Witch?

Jericho Drumm, also known as Brother Voodoo, met Wanda when they teamed up in Avengers Unity Squad. In the Uncanny Avengers #30 issue by Jim Zub, Sean Izaakse, Tamra Bonvillain, Clayton Cowles, and Tom Brevoort, the two hit it off immediately. Wanda tells Brother Voodoo that she has never been with someone who understands both the woman and the witch in her.

The tragedy that Wanda experienced when she lost Vision was so traumatizing. In the comics, they had a very tumultuous relationship which left both characters to carry a baggage of heavy emotions. When Wanda also lost her sons Billy and Tommy, her entire world crashed, resulting in the villainous actions she did in House of M and Avengers Disassembled storylines.

Her relationship with Jericho is not yet fully explored, and nothing much happened except it served as an acknowledgment of their efforts in moving on from the past. Brother Voodoo is also a magician, and that explains why being with him was easy for Wanda. For more than a decade, her character was trapped in the shadows of her past relationship with Vision.

Hopefully, the creators would explore more of Wanda and Jericho’s story. Their mature and tender relationship is quite refreshing to witness. There is so much possibility for this is an ongoing narrative.
