In what seems to be the most amazing, blockbusting, superhero movie, I was simply blown away by how it all ended. The Avengers were united one last time, taking on the full force of Thanos. With Tony’s sacrifice, he ended what he started beautifully – a worthy sacrifice of the greatest hero of all time. I still can’t believe if Marvel will be able to top this, but with the studio still forging on Phase 4 with a new line of superheroes, I’m hooked.
But in the midst of all that, questions remained because the time heist was such a mess, we just couldn’t. One of them was finally answered by Kevin Feige (which had probably brought me more rage than satisfaction, but okay). I’ll just laugh over it though because I like a movie where characters are put into perils and fight their way onward to win.
“Wanda Maximoff, who is probably near the upper echelons of power – I contend she would have taken down Thanos if he hadn’t called the [army], it was done.
“…the Scarlet Witch now, as Lizzie said on stage in a full sort of unabashed power-based [way], coming into the Doctor Strange movie, that is two heroes coming together in a fun way.”
Initially debuted in X-Men, Scarlet Witch was a powerful character that the Phoenix Five was particularly afraid of. Between the Avengers, she stands side by side with Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel and was probably stronger than the God of Thunder himself.
So, why didn’t she take him on in a one-on-one? When you have the power to destroy the infinity stone even when it’s split between keeping Thanos at bay, I’d say she could take on Thanos even with the power and space stones. Yeah, she got dusted off in Endgame but she had plenty of chances to take the battle to Thanos and let the rest of the team take care of Vision.
