In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange cast a spell that virtually wiped Peter from history. But what if one of the most powerful Avengers is unphased by this and remembers Spider-Man? Let us have a look at it this MCU theory:
What happened in Spider-Man: No Way Home
Spider-Man: No Way Home stretched the boundaries of what science and magic could reach. The multiverse not only explored an infinite range of scenarios, but it also set the standard of sorcery and how some spells may affect the world forever. In the context of Peter Parker, everybody he ever knew and loved would forget who he was in order to save the world from a greater peril. While Doctor Strange has promised that no one would recall who he is, there is a possibility that the Avengers’ most lethal member may know who Peter is. And that character is… Wanda Maximoff.
The background on Wanda Maximoff
Wanda Maximoff has evolved from a young girl who wanted nothing more than to safeguard her nation into a strong woman whose boundaries are only mirrored by her anguish over the loss of her family, brother, love, and children. But, in her grief, she’s discovered her real talent and taken on the enigmatic title of the Scarlet Witch. She’s spent the time since WandaVision trying to find out how far her supernatural skills could go with this new power increase. Her physical form’s ability to function without her astral form has hinted at how much more formidable she is than Strange. As a consequence, Reddit theory Stikfkip feels that this may be the answer to her memory of Peter Parker.
Why would Wanda Maximoff remember Peter Parker:
The basic premise of this idea is that Wanda is considerably more strong than Strange, hence Strange’s forgetfulness spell would have no effect on her. The first and most significant reason for this is that she doesn’t borrow power, she herself is power. Wanda Maximoff is both the Scarlet Witch and a Nexus entity, which could allow her to see across the universe while conjuring magic from within. If Strange’s spell did reach her, she might be able to detect the change in energy and protect herself or neutralize it entirely.
Even if Wanda isn’t competent enough to withstand a massive spell like the one Strange used in No Way Home, she may possibly counteract its effects with simple tactics. The use of runes is the most obvious method. Wanda has a low level of trust towards people in general. As a result, it’s safe to presume she’d cast runes in whatever place she’s in, just in case someone showed up. Wanda would be secure from Strange’s magic if the runes were effective enough to shield her in the house.
