"I can't control their fear, only my own."

Scarlet Witch, also known as Wanda Maximoff, was born in the Eastern European country of Sokovia and grew up with her twin brother Pietro. In an effort to help purge their country of strife, the twins agreed to undergo experiments with the Scepter under the supervision of Wolfgang von Strucker's HYDRA cell, and received superpowers as a result, with Wanda attaining various abilities including telekinesis, telepathy, and energy manipulation. When HYDRA fell at the hands of Captain America and Black Widow, the twins joined the robot Ultron to get their revenge on Tony Stark for his hand in creating the weapons that made her and Pietro into orphans, but eventually switched sides and joined the Avengers when they discovered Ultron's true intentions. Although Pietro was killed during the ensuing battle on Sokovia, Wanda survived and became a full-time member of the Avengers. During the events of the Avengers Civil War, she sided with Captain America and was briefly imprisoned in the Raft after getting captured by Iron Man and his team before Rogers freed her. Over the next two years, Maximoff reunited and reconciled with Vision, and together the two started living off the grid in Europe, forming a romantic relationship. (Mostly taken from the Wiki.)

Wanda's powers were more Scarlet Witchy (minus the telepathy of course) in AoU now they're too Jean Greyish
