Wanda Maximoff and her twin brother, Pietro, grew up in the troubled country of Sokovia, where they joined HYDRA and subsequently gained superpowers as a result of its experiments, with Pietro gaining super speed and Wanda gaining psionic abilities. When the HYDRA cell in Sokovia fell to the Avengers, the twins joined forces with the rogue android Ultron, only to turn against him upon realizing the full extent of his threat. In the ensuing battle between Ultron and the Avengers, Pietro was ultimately killed.

Shortly after Ultron’s defeat, Wanda would join the Avengers as the super heroine known as the Scarlet Witch.
