WandaVision: It’s Been Agatha (and Monica) All Along

We wanted to really dive in to two of our favorite characters in WandaVision, Monica and Agatha, so here is our down-the-rabbit-hole discussion!

From Monica’s origins as a bearer of the Captain Marvel moniker, to Agatha’s history with the Salem Witch Trials, we looked into how these two characters’ comics stories tie in to their arcs in the WandaVIsion series.

We also discussed how we still see traces of the ancient Western storytelling archetype of the witch in many powerful female characters in our favorite modern media, even when their powers don’t come from witchcraft.
