MCU Fans Hail Scarlet Witch As The Strongest Avenger


There’s been a bit of a competition between the Avengers as to who the strongest among them is since forever, and the conversation inevitably found its way to the MCU as well.

Even the producers have paid homage to this fan debate with an in-universe Easter Egg. In Thor: Ragnarok, when the God of Thunder finds the Quinjet, he struggles to activate the ship while trying to access its AI with the code “strongest Avenger.” After Bruce Banner arrives, though, the vessel makes a point of calling him just that. While the two contenders have a lot going for themselves, one as a literal god and the other a seemingly invincible monster who becomes stronger the angrier he gets, some fans have often found themselves favoring another candidate.

We’re referring, of course, to Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch. Besides the fact that the character has already shown strength comparable to that of Marvel’s cosmically powerful individuals, Wanda is also a formidable fighter in the MCU. In the final moments of Avengers: Infinity War, the superheroine uses a fraction of her powers to keep a marching Thanos at bay, who already has 5 out of the 6 Infinity Stones.

She once again went toe-to-toe with the Mad Titan in Avengers: Endgame and overpowered him with ease, whereas the Big Three failed to even land a single hit when they fought him a couple of scenes prior. Now, with less than two weeks to the release of WandaVision, a Twitter post that’s hailed her as the strongest Avenger is going viral, as you can see below.

Scarlet Witch gets her abilities from the Mind Stone, which could explain why she’s so overpowered. Not only that, but Elizabeth Olsen has teased that there’s more to Wanda’s strength than we already know. Suffice it to say, then, MCU fans are pretty excited for WandaVision and the return of their favorite character, and you can catch it from January 15th on Disney Plus.
