Wanda Maximoff from Avengers: Age of Ultron

Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen) is one of the most powerful women in the MCU. Long before she squared off against Thanos, though, she was an experiment for the Hydra scientist Baron von Strucker. She and her brother Quicksilver both gained abilities after agreeing to be von Strucker’s test subjects. Wanda can move things with her mind, create force fields, and, when angry, rip nearly anything apart. The color of her energy earned her the nickname Scarlet Witch, which is also reflected in the clothes she wears. She heavily prefers the colors red and black. She also tends to wear several layers of jewelry, never content simply with one ring or necklace. She generally wears her long auburn hair down but is sometimes known to pull it back in a high ponytail. Wanda also prefers dark eye makeup and red lips with otherwise subtle makeup. She is not the type to trust easily and tries not to use her powers in too obvious a fashion unless absolutely necessary.

Wanda Maximoff in Avengers: Infinity War

Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) evolved so much over her arc within the MCU. She went from a jaded villain to a hero struggling to do what was right while trying to find herself at the same time. Her most iconic battlefield look was in Avengers: Infinity War when she faced off against Thanos’ forces and held her own against impossible odds. You can add your own mix of unique silver rings to the costume, but the red leather coat and corset paired with the tight black pants and heeled boots truly make this look.

Wanda Maximoff from WandaVision

Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen) is one of the longest-standing women in the MCU. And after suffering the loss of both Tony and Natasha in Endgame as well as her brother Pietro and her lover Vision in earlier movies, fans weren’t certain how Wanda would handle her grief. The answers, it seems, will come in the Disney+ show WandaVision. And while details are sparse, a Super Bowl ad gave fans a few teasers. Wanda and Vision appear to be reunited and living in domestic bliss that spans several decades. Wanda’s costumes change to fit the times but the two that stand out to most viewers are her ’80s “new mom” outfit and what appears to be a Halloween costume based of Scarlet Witch’s comic canon outfit, as seen above.
