SCARLET WITCH VS. HEXFINDER!
When chaos magic meets alchemical might, it’s all Wanda can do to keep her town – and her friends – from getting caught in the crossfire. Hexfinder has sworn vengeance on all witches and won’t stop until Wanda is a trophy on her wall. Wanda is one of the most powerful forces in the Marvel Universe – but can she stand against someone who’s trained her whole life to eradicate magic?
ComicBook.comScarlet Witch's finale (until next year's Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver miniseries) is nothing short of beautiful. Wanda's battle against Hexfinder, and the nature of her ever-changing role in the Marvel universe, both come to a head withh a poignant, action-packed flurry. Steve Orlando, Sara Pichelli, and company knock it out of the park once again, and make me sad that this particular era of Wanda's story is over.
The Comicbook DispatchThough SCARLET WITCH leaned more into plot than character in the immediate run up to this issue, Orlando balances both elements here and hits the kind of emotional beats that made the series successful. SCARLET WITCH #10 ties everything together and sends the series out on a high note.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Orlando crafts an engaging and exciting story in this issue that brings all the story elements together brilliantly. The action is thrilling and both Wanda and Darcy are given great agency throughout the story while also showcasing them compassion both characters have towards Joseph. There is a great redemption arc for the character in the issue and the ending makes me excited to see what happens next. The Art: Pichelli’s art is dazzling. I love the detail in every page and panel as well as the beautifully composed action and magic.
COMICONEndings and beginnings are always intertwined, as ‘Scarlet Witch’ #10 shows as the series concludes while setting what comes next. Emotions, magic, and character development swirl together again for another gorgeous entry to this fantastic series.
The Fandom PostI thoroughly enjoyed this series as a whole even when there were elements from the wider Marvel Universe that I didn’t know about. Steve Orlando made it all pretty accessible but outdid himself by making it largely episodic so that you could drop in and enjoy things without needing all the knowledge. Binding it together with gorgeous artwork from Sara Pichelli and the color design from Frank Williams just elevated it all. There was so much creativity in panel layout, flow of movement, and the vividness of it all that you could easily fall in love with it as a whole. It’s definitely a strong work and the right way to handle a character like Wanda so that someone so overpowered doesn’t just upset the natural balance of things in other storylines because of her nature.
Henchman-4-HireThe final issue of this very awesome comic wraps things up quickly, but is no less a fun read.
Comic Book RevolutionScarlet Witch #10 ends this series on a high note. There was a great mix of action and emotion throughout this finale. Steve Orlando and Sara Pichelli proved that Wanda Maximoff can carry a solo series that has all the elements of a great superhero comic book. This ending leaves the door open for more adventures led by Scarlet Witch and hopefully we see more of after the mini-series with Quicksilver.
