    This started strong but just kind of petered out, unfortunately. I have a sneaking suspicion the book was cancelled well before the end of Robinson’s intended story-arc. I wonder how it would have ended…

    The series finally starts to come together as Wanda resolves things with her mother and fixes magic. However it all just kind of fizzles out at the end. You can tell Robinson had to wrap up things in a hurry and things are left open ended.

    [Read as single issues] I'm really going to miss this series. James Robinson brings it home with some final revelations about Wanda and Pietro's true parentage (it's not Magneto, and it sorts out that nasty High Evolutionary mess too) before bringing Wanda face to face with the true threat to witchcraft before bringing the series to a crescendo, using all of the previous issues' adventures to inform the finale.

This hasn't been a series of one-shots, it's a story told in fifteen parts, and I hope other writers treat Wanda with half as much care as Robinson has here. I think the only thing I dislike about this ending is the fact that the villain doesn't get quite the send-off I'd have liked, and I doubt he'll be picked up again unless Robinson does it himself. Once again, the artwork is by a collection of gorgeous artists, including Leila De Luca, Annapaola Martello, Jonathan Marks, and Vanessa Del Ray (who returns for the final issue to close us off as she opened us). Everyone raves over the Vision's most recent ongoing, which was noteably spectacular, but Scarlet Witch is just as good, if less cerebral.

    Very good! I'M SO SAD!!! This series has unfortunately been cancelled! :( A real shame, cause honestly if I had to drop all the titles I collect and I had to only pick up one title, I would choose this if it was still ongoing! So as you can imagine this volume basically wraps up the series; it does this by more conventional means, as its one long story arc and not the series of one shots the other volumes were structured as! The story is very "hit you in the feels", as it deals with Wanda's moth Very good! I'M SO SAD!!!

In the end I can't say much other then this is a really good volume, and overall probably one of my favorited comic series of all time, that I ever had the privilege of reading!

    Despite how hard Marvel has tried the company has never managed the critical or commercial success DC has with Vertigo when it comes to mature supernatural/horror titles. The reason for that IMO, is that Vertigo has been a higher quality imprint. Yet, this is a title, while much more mainstream than most Vertigo, comes close to having a little of that Vertigo feel. For the reader we get the payoff of a plot line that has been building, and that is Wanda's work of repairing witchcraft in the world Despite how hard Marvel has tried the company has never managed the critical or commercial success DC has with Vertigo when it comes to mature supernatural/horror titles.

For the reader we get the payoff of a plot line that has been building, and that is Wanda's work of repairing witchcraft in the world. At the same time multiple subplots get their payoff, including one about Wanda's mother and a smaller one about Wanda's relationship with her brother. By the time the end rolls around there are hints of what could have come if the series had not been canceled. A further exploration of other witches not seen before, this little bit by Robinson was much appreciated for the small exposure as to how the craft might work in Ireland, Japan, and Cuba, a new role for Agatha, and a foe's return. Definitely recommended for those who enjoyed Robinson's run on Starman and Firearm, but not quite as personal, or outstanding as her Airboy work.

    This series was seemingly cancelled on issue #15. I'm really sad to see it go if it really is cancelled. I binge read the entire series so I can't necessarily separate this review into individual trades, but I loved this series in its entirety. Learning about Scarlet Witch's past and the little one-and-done stories really made me enjoy this series. This series was seemingly cancelled on issue #15.

    The problems this series created for Wanda - witchcraft broken, soell-use ageing her - are fixed, and she returns to the Avengers. So what was the point of the journey? Well, her origin has been firmed up, until the next time it gets fiddled with; she's definitely not Magneto's kid, instead owing her powers to inheritance and/or the High Evolutionary, because why not leave it a bit confused anyway?

Also, the Evolutionary's intervention in the Yugoslav civil wars... I'm not inherently against that sort of use of real world horrors, but it needs to feel thorough and earned, which this really doesn't. Witchcraft now apparently has some kind of colour link, but it has to be fancy colours - scarlet or coral, not red and pink - presumably so it feels less like a Green Lantern rip-off. And we get some cosmic stuff which doesn't really match any of the established Marvel cosmic stuff, and for which - as with Mother Panic - Shawn Crystal really isn't an obvious fit. But then, this volume is generally a let-down artwise, which is a shame when that was the only reason I even made it this far. Even someone of the calibre of Leila del Duca gets little to work with, and produces surprisingly dull and sparse pages as a result.

    A must read for any Scarlet Witch fan! So the tale has come to an end. We started our journey as the Scarlet Witch traveled the globe, atoning for her sins, and trying to restore witchcraft from the chaos that was taking it. Through this journey, Wanda has become stronger, more self assured; she has faced her past; she has learned about her true mother. This is an incredible story that delves deeply into Wanda Maximoff's life. I could not ask for a more interesting and compelling series. The Fina A must read for any Scarlet Witch fan!

The Final Hex is an exciting battle for truth, love, and justice, the final culmination of all that has led up to this moment. Perhaps Scarlet Witch is not perfect. There are a bit too many deus ex machinas for my taste. Still, it is a fantastic story about a wonderful superhero. Wanda Maximoff is an inspiring person with an amazing soul. If I could be half the hero that she is I would be proud of myself. I know this series is over, but I can't wait to read more about her. I definitely am going to have to find out where her story continues next. We still need to find out the secret about her damn father!

Each of the issues is illustrated with a different art-style, which keeps the series feeling fresh and unique. The stories themselves were fun to read, for the most part, though some of them felt like they could've been expanded into multiple issues instead of being resolved in just one. It was also quite interesting delving more into Wanda's lineage, and the revelation of her real mother - Natalya Maximoff, the original Scarlet Witch, was one that I really liked.

    Wanda Maximoff could kick my ass and I would thank her. What a stunning series conclusion! I'm so sad that it's over, and I wish it had been a little longer - you could tell that a bunch of the loose ends had to be wrapped up pretty quickly - but it was so wonderful. I'm still pretty mad that they've decided to take one of the most powerful Jewish women in fiction and say "psych!! That's not who she really is." and then just drop it, as if Wanda wouldn't even be considering her Jewish identity aft Wanda Maximoff could kick my ass and I would thank her.

    The plot lines are wrapped up decently well considering that this was very obviously cancelled early. The art is still consistently interesting, but the artists weren't always paired with the most fitting material. In the second volume, each artist seemed like they were perfectly chosen for their issue. Here, an artist seemed like a good fit for part of an issue and often a terrible fit for other scenes.

    This was a somewhat satisfying conclusion to Robinson's run on Scarlet Witch. I think it works pretty well and ties up the series, while leaving some loose threads that someone else could conceivably pick up later. (Though it seems unlikely that anyone will get the chance any time soon.) Robinson did a few admirable things in this series. First, he actually gave Wanda a personality, and one that's not just defined by her relationships to Quicksilver, or the Vision, or whoever.

Second, he did manage to address some of the convoluted history of the character and straighten it out a bit, rather than just sweeping it all under the rug or ignoring it. Third, he told some cool standalone stories within a framework that was leading up to a specific conclusion, where various ideas and threads came together in the end. The artwork in this volume is again by a different artist on each issue. I was a little disappointed in the artwork on one issue, but I really liked two or three of the artists, and overall thought the artists worked well on their individual issues.

    Disappointing that Marvel canceled this series, I though the events in this volume (issues 11-15) wrapped up the "magic is broken" storyline in a more interesting way than I first feared & it seemed like a good springboard to some interesting adventures for the Scarlet Witch. But no, because Marvel.

    UPDATE: I got issue 15 and it is the final issue of this series. It ends more or less the same way both Black Widow series end. I liked the case with Senor Violeta and his great grandson, though the set up with Dane remains.

Maybe if I'm ever inspired I'll track down whatever issue of Uncanny Avengers the two face off in, but for now, this is the end of Scarlet Witch Vol 3 is what vol 1 should have been. Finally this series is starting to develop a unique tone and pace, and it's at the very, very end. We finally explore Wanda's past, her personality and her supposed mission of saving magic from corruption and discovering her past. In The Final Hex Wanda travels to Serbia to find the Roma caravan from which she is descended. She finds Dasha Kolarov, her mother's sidekick and best friend, and Marya her aunt who raised her who Wanda thought was dead. They send Wanda on a journey back to the Witch's Road to save magic. First things first. While I still read Marvel religiously, Wanda and Pietro were the children of Magda Maximoff and Erick Lehnsherr, who were raised by their aunt and uncle, Mayra and Django Maximoff. Now, thanks to HORRIBLY STUPID RETCONS Wanda's mother in no longer Magda, but Natalya Maximoff. I honestly don't care either way about who Wanda's mom is; I think Natalya is a cool character in her own right, I would gladly read her adventures as a witch fighting demons, werewolves and vampires between and during the the second world war. I found the reveal with Marya touching and I'm glad we really do explore Wanda's Romani heritage. The issue addressed something that has been happening on the Balkans a lot in the past; the exodus of the Roma, how horribly they were treated by the church and especially the warring armies that crossed there, and how no one really cared about protecting or even so much as recording the different caravan's movements. I laughed when the priest commented on which army; it's the truest statement about the Balkans ever said. This isn't to say this volume is perfect. There is a lot that still annoyed me a lot, like how Natalya is super vague about everything and the stupid cliffhanger reveal she gives Wanda at the end; Pietro's deus ex machina turn at the end, and how nothing got resolved between him and Wanda (and even him and his mother). The fight with the demon who possessed Marya and Dasha was dumb and just so we could have an action scene. And the final issue.... the art was horrendous. Shawn Crystal... their backgrounds and the design of the chaos dragon were cool, but the art on the humans was absolutely atrocious. Wanda's final panel will give me nightmares. And I think the biggest problem for me was that this series was terribly paced and badly constructed. This volume was good if only because it finally hankered down and actually did the thing it told us it was going to do; it had Wanda confront her past and find her mother. It was simple and it focused on the characters. All the previous 10 issues were little more than filler for all they mattered here. It's not enough to just throw in references or say 'oh well there was this warlock in Japan and he didn't have kids and that's why he's important to me somehow'. If the series started with Wanda going on a mission to fix magic and accidentally realizing early on who her mother is, and the spending the rest of the time searching for her or have the cases tie more closely to her mother or the goddess or the chaos dragon, then all the single issues would actually contribute to a good story, but as is, it feels like 10 issues of nothing, and 4 of actual development. For some reason this volume includes the Uncanny Avengers Annual. I don't know why, because it's really unclear when exactly this is supposed to be set. It follows the Uncanny Department, a group of mages, witches and warlocks who fought in the 40's along with the Defenders, which included Agatha Harkness and Dane. In the present (I think after he and Wanda fought on the Witch's Road) Dane goes and visits the original Dr Voodoo and kills him... for some reason. Apparently Dane had been deceiving everyone for years that he was a good guy, but now he wants to exact his revenge on Wanda? Question: If Agatha Harkness knew him well when she was alive, why did she not tell Wanda more about him when they fought with him back in issue 4? Her reaction was just, 'Dane I should've known you were behind this', instead of you know 'HOLLY SHIT DANE WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?" I also don't know why they decided to end on such a cliffhanger and say that Dane will fight Wanda again in Scarlet Witch, when there is no more Scarlet Witch. The last issue is issue 15 (not included in this trade), and it came out in February; there haven't been any more issues since. So I don't know if the series got cancelled or they are on hiatus, but as is... Scarlet Witch ends on a cliffhanger for something we'll never see. I guess it's a fitting end for a very underwhelming series.

    Having finished the whole run, I can see clearly my issues with the writing (as usual, the art and the colors were amazing, though I have to admit the selection of artists for the prior trades was better).

Sadly, only the individual stories work (and since this trade has the least amount of them, it's the weakest of the three on that level); the main thread, of something hurting witchcraft could have been interesting, if the author had made it either more personal or if its effects could have been better felt; instead, it just feels like an afterthought, something that has to be solved in the final issues just because. Still, the weakest part of the whole run is adding even more retcons to Wanda's origin. Though I'm glad at no point it feels this is gonna be yet another story of Wanda losing her powers, her origin being retconned is another surprisingly common plot for her and this one was just bad. It hadn't been long enough since the latest retcon and to see that this one comes with an additional mystery (who is Wanda's actual father), just makes the whole run even more frustrating. Overall, I appreciate the attempt to make something more with Wanda, something that isn't just "this woman is crazy!", and all the amazing work that Aja did with the covers and the many interior artists and colorists did with each issue; I'm just sad that Wanda has yet to have a great run, or even a great miniseries, just for herself. I guess I'll keep on waiting. (At least we didn't have to deal more with the Emerald Warlock in this trade.)

    Don’t get me wrong here; the art’s been great from start to finish in all three volumes with an interesting crew of different artists featuring some vastly different styles, some better than others, and overall really impressive, especially the cover art.

(Yeah, I was paying attention—there’s a moment in the middle of the second volume where Pietro shows up unexpectedly at Wanda’s apartment in Manhattan, and she tells him, “Now, come here and give your sister a hug.” But...300 pages boiled down to one single line from episode five?) And I understand the strange way time flows in comic books, but still things just don’t add up as Wanda’s worldwide peregrinations finally take her back to Serbia and Transia and Wundagore. She shouldn’t be able to meet the folks she meets there. That just doesn’t make any sense, and I’m not even talking about the bizarrely torturous twistings of her family tree. I mean these people should be long dead and gone. But you know who shouldn’t be dead but who doesn’t make an appearance, even in a flashback? Bova, that’s who! Goddammit, but I just don’t think this writer knew the first good goddam thing about Wanda Maximoff before he started writing this series. Sigh.

About her heritage, about her mom, about her aunt and uncle. The ending of the main storyline felt a bit abrupt after being built up for 14 issues, but I was always more curious of how Wanda's personal discovery would go so I didn't mind this bit too much. And she manages to meet her real mom, she manages to find out more about her past, she even makes up with Pietro - and in the end she makes a big decision. I loved all of this adventure with her. Wanda is not only the most powerful witch ever lived, but she is also so incredibly strong mentally. She is not afraid of standing up for herself or for those who need help. She is not afraid to admit she sometimes needs help and she is struggling. For me it's always hard to find/have favourite female characters but Wanda Maximoff is definitely someone I both love and consider as a role model. I can only recommend this series. Every issue is drawn by a different artist and this really keeps the story dynamic. Plus I find this very helpful to give a chance to new artists to try their wings and be a part of something big together.

I also knew basic things like her being Quicksilver’s sibling and who her parentage was suppose to be. I also feel the ending to this particular storyline was rushed and I was yearning for more of Wanda’s story. I would love to see more comics with Scarlet Witch. She seems to always end up in the background of other characters stories. I think she really needs more tales just following her. A witch with as much power as she has should not be in the background.

    This third volume in the series finally tries to bring everything together and somewhat justifies Wanda's magical anthology-style journey with a decent enough adventure centered around her mother and the source of all witch magic itself.

I'm not 100% sold on the effort to introduce different color-based magic users in the Marvel Universe as it feels like a very shallow Green Lantern approach to things. There was no other reason given for the color alignment other than such powers being passed on within families and that was it. There was no extensive explanation given for why particular colors resonated with this or that person or how it influenced their magic. Decent series as a whole but not all that groundbreaking.

    I have to admit that after the way that this story ran I'm not surprised to find out--after the fact--that it was cancelled during or before this volume was collected. Robinson is still strong here, although the story does feel slightly cut short, and I loved his take on the character--it felt like something that could have gone on a lot longer with Wanda as a solo character.

This volume and its predecessors put Wanda on a level with or above Dr. Strange and capture the weirdness that can come with magic, the otherworldliness that is always present in the best fantasy but so often turns to another explanation for someone's energy blasts in comic books. I'll miss this book quite a bit. Here's hoping whoever handles Wanda next does even half as well as Robinson has done here.

    Not the strongest end for the series, especially as this crop of artists wasn’t as good as the previous two collections (though it did have Leila Del Duca and Vanessa Del Rey, so still good), but the story really kind of took a weird turn. Instead of the slow burn, with Wanda going to different places around the world to solve magical mysteries, we got a fairly rushed ending that wasn’t very good. The climactic fight with the big bad was over before I realized what was going on.

The climactic fight with the big bad was over before I realized what was going on. Something I hadn’t mentioned yet, though, were David Aja’s amazing covers. He did every cover for every issue of the series, and they were all awesome (and they made me miss Fraction’s Hawk Guy series).

    I have read Volume one and this volume. My review of Volume one, shows that I appreciated James Robinson returning to form, coming the closest he has to his Starman days. this book was still in that vein, it just felt a bit flat compared to that first trade. There is some great stuff with wanda interacting with her mother, and also a bit of worldbuilding with the idea of witches and how color ties in with each of their powers. I can't say I will be missing this book, though, now that it is over. I have read Volume one and this volume.

    Well, Wanda finally meets her mother...'s ghost. And fixes magic, which she's been trying to do for awhile now when she wasn't getting in fights with her brother and getting conned by fake psychiatrists. She also discovers that the woman who raised her is alive after all these years. However, I felt like there were a lot of things that came up that seemed like they were going to come back and they just didn't and since they didn't I had to wonder on some of the plots here.. what was the point.

Still, it's Scarlet Witch so yay.

    I normally don’t read superhero comics, but I love witch stories and the cover grabbed me. I didn’t realize that this was Elizabeth Olsen’s character from the Marvel movies. (Luckily, my husband told me.) In spite of my usual superhero disinterest, I enjoyed the Scarlet Witch books for something different. Volume 3 didn’t hold my attention as well, so I doubt I’ll read any more in the series. However, I am glad that I gave these books a chance!

    Ugh. The story sort of improves in this final collection, but it was too little, too late. It didn’t help that the last few pages were printed incorrectly, with the tops and bottoms completely cut out. The panels and the story itself got really choppy, too, so it’s possible pages were missing. But I wouldn’t be surprised if it was just more garbage storytelling. This series has been nothing but consistent, when it comes to that. What a lost opportunity. This series was such a letdown.
