Wanda Maximoff tells Stephen Strange in a baffling moment early in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. I do it, I become the enemy That doesn''t seem fair.
If you think about it for more than two seconds, it''s a false equivalency between two individuals who are inherently on unsuitable footing. Wanda selfishly enslaved an entire town in a gambit to save it. However, her logic does not make sense. However, as a result, Wanda becomes a simple, one-note villain and becomes the latest MCU woman to fall.
[Ed. note: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and MCU Films in general is coming up.]
Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) is the main villain in the multiverse of Madness series. She is enlightening in seeking to form a universe in which the children she imagined for herself in WandaVision were effective. However, Wanda is a craze for the future by experiencing extreme effects and becoming a villain. However, she is insensitive about the fact that she turns into a villain. The fact that she becomes a villain speaks to an unfortunate pattern in how the M
As new heroes enter the MCU roster, Wanda is the last of Marvels Phase One and Two heroines, all of whom ended up with similarly tragic and humiliating results. That doesn''t guarantee a good track record for the future, particularly given how male heroes of the same era have maintained.
I think Ive seen this film before
With Hawkeyes Kate Bishop, Captain Marvel 2s Carol Danvers, and Ms. Marvels Kamala Khan, the MCU wasnt always so inclusive. Only three female superheroes were trained in this role for two whole MCU stages, not civilian love interests. Natasha Romanoff, Gamora, and Wanda Maximoff
The three individuals who made the move were mostly men. (Natasha was already an integral part of the group by the time Wanda arrived, but she is still the one woman among five men.) But while all three of them had a chance to become heroes in their respective teams and become equally important as their male counterparts, all three are now dead. (At least, Wanda, her villainous, still-loyal-to-Thanos past self is still running around.)
Yes, Tony Stark died in the line of duty, but the MCU has a whole set of white men ready to step up when one of them falls in the battle. Even if Tony Stark died, he receives a well-witnessed hero sacrifice that saves the world. At every turn, Peter Parker takes his next movie unpacking his Tony''s legacy.
After Natasha Romanoff''s death, only Clint and Wanda comment on it during Avengers: Endgame. But the only person who shares his feelings is Natasha''s long-lost sister Yelena, who was revealed in her solo film. Although the MCU seems more focused on plotting the next thing than on giving characters more time to mourning. Still, some people mourn the first Avengers?
The bigger consequences of Wandas and Gamoras'' deaths are still unknown, but a messy break with Marvel makes it less likely that shell be resurrected somehow. However, they never got the chance to become the same type of heroes as their male counterparts. There is no hero journey for them, but it''s just a tragic ending, often as footnotes in someone else''s story.
The WandaVision of it all
It is particularly difficult to judge Wandas'' case due to how much screen time and attention she has received compared to other Disney Plus female characters. Before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the first Disney Plus series, WandaVision, centered on Wanda, who has taken control of a town and plunged it into an escapist sitcom fantasy. The show ended without Wanda having to face consequences for her actions, which some viewers found difficult.
In retrospect, the reason Wanda didn''t deal with consequences or amends in WandaVision is because the series was apparently a villain origin story even if it wasn''t until it was discovered at the time because the actual MCU machine relied on never showing its next move. Even if Wanda didn''t surrender on her grief during the show, it at least felt like shed learned not to let her hurt her and her innocent victims around her. What is the history of love persevering, if not hope that Wanda
Wanda was a fan favorite because to her lack of empathy and her determination. In part part, she became a fan favorite. Even so, audiences had gotten to know her in a way they did not know Carol Danvers or Thors Jane Foster, despite her frustration and affection. Wanda was also a fan favorite. Part of this was the fact that she did not get to know Gamora or Natasha in a way they haven''t seen Carol Danvers or Thors Jane Foster. But
The way she became a villain isn''t the problem. (Though the fact that she seemingly forgets about her lost love, Vision, and focuses solely on discovering her children, it''s difficult to imagine that female characters are only becoming significant and heroic when they''re acting as mothers.) The fact that she became the only one of three original MCU female heroes to gain a chance at becoming a worthy hero with a full character arc, and instead, she turned into a villain to be th
Wanda tells Doctor Strange that she does not die (or die) so that the men around her can rise and soldier. It isnt fair that the only one of them to have a story of her own the story of a lonely lady who was never asked for, and that it is not fair that having anyone to lean on becomes a bad guy. Doctor Strange may have a reason to snag him.
Future plans for the MCU have promised to rectify this. Kate Bishop will likely take over the Hawkeye mantle, while Jane Foster will likely be replaced by Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan in Thor: Love and Thunder. Yelena might be a hero yet, and Black Panthers Shuri will likely be spotlighted in the sequel. Thena, Sersi, and Makkari may eventually be able to evolve into dynamic heroes. It sucks that the original heroines had
