Marvel Fans React: SCARLET WITCH Is Not A Low-Tier Avenger
Marvel fans rallied behind Avengers star Elizabeth Olsen's character Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch after she was ranked criminally low in a recent social media post.
The argument started when Entertainment Weekly came up with a "Build Your Own Avengers Team" game where fans are asked to theoretically spend 15 dollars to form their own dream team. The game consisted of 25 characters and they were categorized for either $5, $4, $3, $2 or $1, with five in each slot. Naturally, characters like Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, and Thor were part of the $5 category.
However, Wanda, who was previously hailed by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige as the "Strongest Avenger" in the franchise, surprisingly fell into the $2 tier which of course didn't sit well with MCU devotees.
"Scarlet Witch" even became a hot trending topic on Twitter and a lot of fans showed solidarity in proving she's worth more than two dollars. Here's what some of them had to say:
SCARLET WITCH IS $2 ?!! NOT MY HERO WANDA MAXIMOFF NOT THE STRONGEST AVENGER HERSELF NOT THE MOST POWERFUL WOMAN IN THE MCU IS LOOSE CHANGE BITCH I’LL TAKE 7 OF HER & USE MY LAST DOLLAR TO THROW AT THANOS’ GRAVE HE WAS ALMOST A DEAD MAN COS OF WANDA ALONE SHE’S WORTH ALL THAT $15 pic.twitter.com/voSZivGFuU— jivain⁷❁ (@jivain97) April 22, 2020
