    Scarlet Witch #4 is another stellar issue of what is set to become one of the Scarlet Witch's definitive solo series. Orlando, Pichelli, D'Amico, and Wilson give us the backstory and reveals we have been waiting for while setting up what seem to be very action-heavy future issues. This series continues to add new elements to both the Scarlet Witch's mythos and the greater Marvel Universes's mythos', while also staying familiar and accessible to fans of Wanda from both the comics and MCU.

    Steve Orlando and Sara Pichelli have become a real tour de force with Wanda, giving her some agency, power, and a demeanor that just oozes confidence, which with Wanda is something that we dont get a lot in other series that Wandas a part of the cast. Often we get a Wanda who is powerful, but theres always this fear of losing control, but not here. Wandas ready to take on the world, and shes not worried at all. Kudos. Read Full Review

    FINAL THOUGHTSScarlet Witch #4 was another home run for Marvel's best ongoing series. Steve Orlando and Sara Pichelli create a compelling narrative around Darcy Lewis origin to begin their first big story arc of the series. In the process we get another great showcase of Scarlet Witch's powers in a different type of fight. We also see how Wanda as a person and hero has grown with her actions in this issue. If you haven't read Scarlet Witch yet make sure to fix that immediately. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 19, 2023

    The Scarlet Witch series has been a great break from how a lot of Marvel books go that I've sampled in the last few years as it's very thoughtful, intentional, and feels like it's coming from a place where our title character knows and understands the impact of her power. It's a very big small project that delivers something personal and intriguing while wrapping it in some fantastic artwork and design styles so that it fits the moment. I'm fascinated by this series and what it's doing because it stands apart from most everything else even while sliding in types of crossover moments along the way. It's possibly one of the best “quiet” books out there that's doing some truly great stuff and character work. Read Full Review
