Marvel Proves Scarlet Witch Can Be Beaten By Spider-Man In Avengers #22

Scarlet Witch is known as the strongest Marvel hero and Avenger today. The extent of her powers cannot be measured or equaled, but she is not exempted from having no weakness. And, it seems that Spider-Man knows what it is.

Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch

Wanda Maximoff first appeared in Marvel’s issue of X-Men #4 as a villain under the influence of Magneto, and as a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Scarlet Witch is not entirely a wicked mutant but is only being forced to do so out of gratitude. When she left the band, she and her brother Quicksilver teamed up with the Avengers.

Indeed, she proved to be the strongest with her all-mystical hexes. She could put a curse on anyone and bring disaster at the wave of her hands. But, every hero always has their ‘Achilles heel’.

This Signature Move Can Beat Scarlet Witch

Stan Lee and Don Heck’s Marvel issue of Avengers #22 saw the Avengers breaking up after New York City declared superheroes illegal. The team, including Wanda and Pietro, had to look for jobs to sustain themselves. The Avengers found a living in performing in the town’s circus. It belongs to the Ringmaster, a sinister character who tried to take advantage of the Avengers. One of his cronies jumped at Scarlet Witch and covered her eyes. As she struggled, she confessed, “Can’t use my Hex while she covers my eyes!!

This revelation sheds light on how Wanda uses her powers, and she needs her sense of sight to control her hexes. If there’s one superhero who can totally beat her, it would be Spider-Man. Remember when the Webslinger covered his foe’s entire face with his web? That is one of his signature moves!

Despite not having any supernatural powers, Spider-Man has the advantage in this situation. Imagine if he used that move on Scarlet Witch in MCU’s Captain America: Civil War.
