    Only two issues in, Scarlet Witch has settled into a delightful and well-executed rhythm, which just might give way to one of Marvel's best books in years. This issue centers on a crossing of paths between Wanda and Viv, providing some long-awaited closure regarding their unconventional family dynamic. That tale provides another largely-episodic, brilliantly-crafted story from Orlando, Pichelli, and company, which tees up just enough intrigue for what's to come. The backup story from Williams, Allen, and company is equally excellent, uniting Wanda and Storm in a heartfelt adventure. If you aren't already reading this new era of Scarlet Witch, you owe it to yourself to change that.

    You Don't Read Comics

    The Last Door continues to be a fun idea, but the conflict at the center of the main story is more than interesting enough to carry itself without the narrative gimmick. Families get hopelessly complicated in the Marvel Universe, and Wandas family is one of the more complicated by far. Orlando manages to deliver a fun adventure that also provides a remarkably intimate look into the psyche of a casually dark practitioner of magic.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Orlando delivers an entertaining and engaging story with great humor and character mixed in. I love the conflict between Wanda and Viv and their complicated relationship makes the moments between them more interesting. The adventure elements work insanely well and make me appreciate the character of Wanda more. I love the banter between Wanda and Darcy and am excited to see more of her story develop. The Art: Pichelli delivers stunning imagery throughout the issue. The visual style is perfect for the tone of the story and its characters and enhances the world of the Scarlet Witch beautifully.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    SCARLET WITCH #2 continues to re-establish Wanda as a fully realized character in her own right, jettisoning much of her difficult history. The way Wanda defeats Dreamscape is representative of that. The issue also shows off how individual stories with random people coming through the Last Door can further inform Wanda. Orlando can use these one-off plots to reveal nuances about Wandas character via how she responds to those shes helping. This is another very successful issue in a fledgling and compelling new series.

    Steve Orlando serves up a solid issue, stacked with character development, while Sara Pichellis work here elevates the story. This issue might not have landed as deftly as it did with an artist not of Saras caliber. The teams creating an atmosphere thats rich, and full of intrigue, as they give Wanda this new role in the greater universe. Hopefully well see some action in the coming issues, as thats been missing with these first two issues. We also get a Scarlet Witch and Storm team up by Stephanie Williams and Chris Allen thats bound to impress old and new fans of these two very formidable women.

    Scarlet Witch #3 is out next month and looks to begin something of an arc for the series. I'm all for it, but I hope the creative team does not lose sight of how well the current structure is working.

    Comic Book Revolution

    For as enjoyable as the first issue was Steve Orlando and Sara Pichelli improve on it in every way with Scarlet Witch #2. Continuing the storytelling in a one-shot style with the overarching narrative of how Wanda Maximoff is reestablishing her life has been a great choice. Not only that but we are treated to an additional Scarlet Witch and Storm team-up story by Stephanie Williams and Chris Allen that was a great surprise. It all comes together that after two issues Scarlet Witch is already one of the best comic books Marvel is currently publishing.

    This is just a fun issue that fully embraces the new series and the characters being used. It touches on the relationship between Wanda and Viv, while paying fine attention to their continuity. The issue puts Darcy to good use, making her into an excellent supporting character. And Wanda is just plain fun. She’s a superhero, she’s been given a fun new status quo to warrant this series, and she’s being put to great use seeing it through. This is what I like in a new superhero solo series. Put the hero to good work, give them a clearly defined status quo and story, and just keep telling good stories with them and their supporting cast. And that’s what Scarlet Witch has delivered in its second issue.

    When your biggest complaint is that the first issue was great and this one is only very good, you've still got an entertaining read on your hands.
