So, there was no way I could pass up the chance to work on Scarlet Witch,” and continues, “Wanda Maximoff has finally broken free of the shadows she’s wrestled with for years. And now? Sara Pichelli, Russell Dauterman, and I are unveiling the next chapter of her powerful, improbable, magical life. When you have nowhere else to turn…you turn to the Scarlet Witch. And God helps anyone who gets in her way.”
