Scarlet Witch #1

The Scarlet Witch is alive? Oh wait, she's dead again. Honestly, it's been awhile since I've seen Wanda. Her death, and Magneto's reaction to it, was a key to the end of mutant utopia and that's really the last time I remember. Since then, after returning from the dead, it appears she's taken residence in the small New York town of Lotkill offering magical assistance to those with the help of her friends Darcy and Mantor in what she calls the Emporium. Oh wait, one of them is now dead too. Oh, and there's some kind of magical door which is important... because reasons.

Scarlet Witch #1 does an adequate job is setting the stage for Wanda's latest setting before disrupting it with a tear in dimensional space and the seemingly never-ending supply of the demony Endings emerging to attack the town. Mantor (honestly the best part of the comic) dies quickly before Wanda herself meets her end at the Griever at the End of All Things. Somehow, I doubt this latest death will take either.
