Scarlet Witch Thanos fight

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos (Josh Brolin) put Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) through the emotional wringer. The Mad Titan portals over to Wakanda and essentially forces Scarlet Witch to kill Vision, the man (android) she loves in order to ensure that Thanos doesn’t get the Mind Stone from his forehead. Thanos watches as she goes through an emotionally devastating decision…only to then spin back the clock and kill Vision anyway, taking the stone and ultimately completing his mission of destroying half of all life in the universe.

So when Wanda encounters Thanos again in Avengers: Endgame, she’s pissed. And in a recent interview, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirms something the film itself implies: that Scarlet Witch could have kicked Thanos’s purple ass all by herself if Thanos didn’t call his armies in for backup.
