Years ago, the Scarlet Witch was one of the founding members of the Avengers Unity Squad, which was meant to bridge the gap between mutants and humans. During her stint on the team, the Scarlet Witch’s antagonistic relationship with Rogue almost got both of them killed, and it did in an alternate timeline! Rogue and Wanda eventually reconciled, but it’s been a long time since the Scarlet Witch was a member of the team.
In Secret Empire, the Scarlet Witch was possessed by the elder God, Chthon, and her brother, Quicksilver, vowed to save her. Now, the Secret Empire has fallen, and Quicksilver and Rogue aren’t sure if Wanda has really been saved. In this week’s exclusive preview from Uncanny Avengers # 26, we see the awkward reunion between the siblings as the next crisis looms on the horizon.
This issue was written by Jim Zub and drawn by Sean Izaakse, with colors by Tamra Bonvillain, and a cover by R.B. Silva. Here’s the official description from Marvel.
THE WITCH IS BACK! Wanda Maximoff has returned to the Avengers at last! But not everyone on the team is happy about it… At the same time, an old foe returns and our heroes’ lives are thrown upside down!
Uncanny Avengers # 26 will be released on Wednesday, August 30 in comic book stores everywhere.
