MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #60-63 (1990): SCARLET WITCH

Richard Howell, who helped create the Vision/Scarlet Witch mini- and maxi-series of the ’80s, returns to Wanda. His renditions of Scarlet Witch are fine–cheesecake lite.

A villain named “Past Master” lures her into a trap with the promise of ancient magical texts.

With Wanda having her mutant hex powers, I often forget that she also studies witchcraft. I like that that aspect of her is being explored here.

As a result of Past Master’s powers, Scarlet Witch is sent back in time to possess her own ancestor, who was a pirate, where she has to use her own magical abilities to return to her own time period and defeat the villain.

Having this story told in 8-page installments makes it a little easier to slog through, frankly, because it’s kind of silly and boring.
