‘WandaVision’ Explains Scarlet Witch’s Classic Costume

We understood that reference.

WandaVision episode six revealed the reason behind Scarlet Witch’s comic-accurate costume in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Spoilers ahead for WandaVision episode six!

Clearly WandaVision is fully dedicated to exploring Scarlet Witch’s place in the MCU and deconstructing her Sokovian origins compared to her comic book history as a mutant (and as Magneto’s daughter). But the sixth episode saw Elizabeth Olsen don a version of Wanda Maximoff’s classic vibrant costume, complete with that bizarre headpiece – and it still made sense in the context of the MCU.

WandaVision episode six saw the Maximoff family all dressed up for Halloween – with Scarlet Witch, Vision, Quicksilver, Wiccan and Speed all stepping into versions of their comic suits. But when asked what she’s actually meant to be, Wanda explains that she’s a “Sokovian fortune teller.” It’s a neat little callback to her MCU history as well as honoring the comics.
