The most recent episode of WandaVision, titled “Breaking the Fourth Wall,” simply confirmed what we might been hoping about Kathryn Hahn’s character, Agnes – she’s been Agatha Harkness, a lesser-known Marvel character, all alongside! Who’s Agatha, anyway, and what’s she doing on this present? We have some solutions!
All through the sequence, Hahn fills the position of Wanda’s defacto greatest good friend Agnes. It isn’t till the seventh episode that we notice what position she’s been enjoying behind the scenes. Agatha has been pulling the strings the complete time; from the second “Agnes” visits Wanda with a housewarming plant to creating “Pietro” present up at Wanda’s entrance door. Even when Imaginative and prescient encounters a seemingly frozen “Agnes” in a witch’s costume, it is all part of Agatha’s act. However what’s Agatha’s precise endgame now that she has Wanda below her spell? And what’s up along with her creepy e book? Additionally, the place are the twins? As a result of they’re actually not within the basement.
Within the Marvel comics, Agatha is a witch who survived the Salem witch trials and went on to mentor Wanda in using her magical powers (whose superhero identify, you may keep in mind, is Scarlet Witch). Not like lots of the different heroes, Agatha’s powers are actually magical, quite than primarily based in one thing extra scientific. Within the comics, she’s additionally the governess and protector of Franklin Richards, the son of Reed Richards and Sue Storm of the Implausible 4.
Finally, the comedian model of Agatha is an ally to Wanda and to the Avengers as an entire, together with lending a hand throughout a disaster involving Wanda’s kids (it is a lengthy story). Regardless of that, she finally meets a devastating destiny, killed by Wanda at one level when Wanda loses a few of her reminiscences and her sanity.
It stays to be seen what, precisely, the WandaVision model of Agatha might be as much as, and whether or not she’ll be a good friend or a foe to Wanda and Imaginative and prescient in no matter unusual actuality they’re coping with. Though from the evil cackle she had on the finish of her “Agatha All Alongside” theme track, and the very fact she killed Sparky the canine, it appears Marvel is setting her as much as be dangerous information. Hopefully, we’ll have all our questions answered with WandaVision’s season finale in a number of weeks.
