If you are excited for Marvel’s WandaVision to come to Disney+ you should read these 5 comic books to get a glimpse into what we might see!
I am beyond excited for WandaVision to come to Disney+ on January 15th because trust me when I tell you, this is going to be a wild ride! If they take even just a little bit from the comic books, and by the looks of this WandaVision trailer breakdown they did, we are all in for an amazing show!
I have been telling anyone who would listen just how powerful Scarlet Witch is for years now. The fact that she is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a BIG deal. And from the looks of this show, it is now an even bigger deal and could easily lead into mutants entering the MCU.
5 Comic Books To Read Before You Watch WandaVision
Many friends and followers have asked me what Marvel comics they need to read to get to know Wanda, Vision, and their family (yes I said family!) better. Below are the 5 comic books I think will best help you understand WandaVision. Enjoy!
House Of M
The Marvel event of the decade is here! The Avengers and the X-Men are faced with a common foe that becomes their greatest threat: Wanda Maximoff! The Scarlet Witch is out of control, and the fate of the entire world is in her hands. Will Magneto help his daughter or use her powers to his own benefit?
Starring the Astonishing X-Men and the New Avengers! You know how sometimes you hear the phrase: and nothing will ever be the same again? Well, this time believe it, buster! Nothing will ever be the same again! Collects House of M #1-8.
Avengers: Vision and the Scarlet Witch – A Year In The Life
In a world full of heroes, villains, and monsters, there are few stranger phenomenons than the marriage of a mutant witch to a heroic synthozoid! As this unlikely couple settles into their home in Leonia, New Jersey, they find themselves at odds with the members of their complex families, including Ultron, the Grim Reaper, Quicksilver, and Magneto!
And when Wanda uses the power of a village of witches to make herself pregnant, the happy twosome becomes a happy foursome when twin sons William and Thomas are born, the future Wiccan and Speed of the Young Avengers!
Plus, the dissolution of Crystal and Quicksilver’s marriage! Featuring the threats of the Lethal Legion, Salem’s Seven, Samhain, the Toad, the demons of Zor, the Enchantress, and the Grim Reaper! And guest-starring Dr. Strange, Power Man, Spider-Man, and the Avengers!
Collects Vision and the Scarlet Witch (1985) #1-12 and West Coast Avengers (1985) #2.
Twin brothers Wiccan and Speed of the Young Avengers are boys without a past. When Wiccan’s powers spiral out of control, the team sets out to find the one person who might be able to help: the Scarlet Witch, who may be the twins’ mother, and whose own uncontrollable powers once almost destroyed the Avengers and nearly wiped out the mutant race.
The Young Avengers’ search will take them across the world and through time, reunite them with friends thought lost and pit them against deadly enemies; it will find them on the run from the Avengers and aligned with the former mutant terrorist Magneto, the Scarlet Witch’s father. And once they find the Scarlet Witch, nothing will ever be the same!
