Scarlet Witch May Have Met Her Match With the Hexfinder

No witch is safe from the Hexfinder! Not even Wanda Maximoff...

It’s funny, other than the whole House of M and MCU movies, I haven’t given a ton of thought to the Scarlet Witch. Sure, she’s massively powerful and drives the action like few other characters, but there hasn’t been many stories recently to dig into her personality and humanize her. Thankfully, that’s happening courtesy of her latest run by Steve Orlando and Sara Pichelli. And this August in Scarlet Witch #7, she’s facing something truly dangerous – a witch-hunting maniac named Nicola Zosimos, AKA Hexfinder!

If, like me, you’re not fully caught up with the latest adventures of the one and only Scarlet Witch, here’s a couple reasons you should head to your local comic shop:

JOURNEY INTO OZ! Wanda swore to help anyone who walked through her door…but what happens when that person is a villain? When Nelson Gruber, A.K.A. Bookworm, comes through the Last Door seeking aid to kill wicked witches in a corner of Oklahoma that’s been transformed into the Emerald City, Wanda must choose between honoring her covenant and going against her own principles. Her daring actions in “Oz” will cause HEXFINDER to finally make her presence known and put her deadly plan for Wanda into motion…

“Piece by piece, we’ve been laying new track in SCARLET WITCH. New faces, new places and challenges, and of course–new villains! HEXFINDER is about to hit Wanda Maximoff’s life hard–and from every angle,” Orlando teased. “Nicola Zosimos has a vendetta against witches and witchcraft that rivals Gorr the Godbutcher’s hatred for gods. Now that Wanda’s the most powerful and prominent she’s been in years, Hexfinder’s no longer content to let her destroy herself. She’s taking the initiative to strike–and thanks to her alchemical Philosopher’s Staff, no witch is safe. Not even the Scarlet Witch!”

It certainly sounds pretty exciting. As uniquely powerful as the Scarlet Witch is, it should be fun to see her face off against someone just as powerful, and who is highly motivated to end her. Be sure and check out the Hexfinder arc this August. And stay tuned for more exciting Marvel stories!

Josh Speer enjoys all sorts of things, but he grew up reading comic books. Stories of wonder and whimsy delight him, as do underdogs and anti-heroes. While admittedly a fan of many Marvel and DC characters (thwip thwip), of late he reads more independent comics. Big fan of Image, Dark Horse, IDW and lately even some Aftershock. Loves stories that are quirky, weird and which feature stunning artwork. Completely shocked that Marvel Netflix still exists on Disney+. Enjoys talking about comic books without getting lost in the minutiae, and focuses most on character relationships and development.
