At the beginning of the year, a new Scarlet Witch ongoing series launched from writer Steve Orlando, artist Sara Pichelli, and colorist by Matt Wilson. From the get-go, the series introduced a new status quo and cast of supporting characters. It appears that was only the tip of the iceberg for Wanda Maximoff because Marvel has announced Contest of Chaos, a new saga this summer that will see the return of Agatha Harkness.

Contest of ChaosTeased last week in the above promotional image by Bryan Hitch, Contest of Chaos will be led by writer Stephanie Phillips and will unfold in multiple annuals throughout the summer by a various creators. It all begins with a prelude issue in Scarlet Witch Annual #1 written by Orlando and illustrated by Carlos Nieto

Here’s how Marvel describes the storyline:

The CONTEST OF CHAOS annuals will center around Agatha’s quest to bring Chaos magic to the forefront so she can take her rightful place as one of the universe’s greatest sorcerers. In order to do so, she’ll orchestrate a mystically-charged challenge involving your favorite heroes. Watch as Wolverine, Spider-Man, Venom, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Cyclops, Storm, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, Human Torch, Taegukgi, Ghost-Spider, White Fox, and Deadpool are corrupted by chaos and pitted against eachother in a thunderous tournament! Each annual will introduce a new matchup with each showdown upping the stakes and building toward an explosive final round, all part of Agatha’s grand scheme to reinvent Marvel magic!

Phillips expressed great enthusiasm about shepherding the storyline:

“CONTEST OF CHAOS is the kind of story I would absolutely sprint to the comic store to buy as a reader. There’s action, mystery, magic, and my favorite characters from all over the Marvel Universe. To be spearheading the storyline is just incredibly cool for me as a creator. It’s going to be big with ramifications for the larger universe… See you this summer – THWIP!” 

Given actress Kathryn Hahn’s breakout portrayal of Agatha Harkness in the Disney+ WandaVision series and its upcoming spinoff series, it’s no surprise Marvel is putting the spotlight on the character with a new look that is more aligned with her depiction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    I lost my hard earned money on a fake website. Claiming high return on investment after a momentary space of a week. I invested in their website. After two weeks, I couldn’t gain any access to my capital and profits, I asked why I could not receive my money, then i was told to make an additional deposit of $26,000 for a dumb reason I couldn’t remember. That was when I knew there was something wrong. I am a policeman with two beautiful daughters, I lost my wife few years ago and I promised myself I was going to do all I could to take care of my kids after the demise of my wife, but falling for such scam for acquisitive reasons and puting my children’s future at risk was quite unwelcoming. I went broke afterwards. During the course of trying to redeem myself after few months of getting scammed, i was given a referral on reddit which navigated me to a hacker on the internet. I patiently took some time to comprehend the core activities of this profound hackers.
