Fans Wonder If Scarlet Witch Could Defeat Henry Cavill’s Superman

May 9, 2022

With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness harnessing the imagination of the public, there was a new fan debate over who would win in a fight between scarlet witch and Superman.

Doctor Strange 2 highlights Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, continuing her Disney Plus series arc Wanda Vision. Olsen received praise for her performances as Wanda Maximoff, and now fans are curious if Multiverse of Madness Wanda could face the benchmark superhero – Superman.

In this particular storyline, it’s Henry Cavill’s Superman from the Zack Snyder trilogy of DC movies – man of Steel, batman versus supermanand Justice League.

Kryptonite is the obvious answer to how Scarlet Witch could potentially beat Superman, but some didn’t have a bar of it – and think she’s powerful enough without it. Superman is canonically weak to magic, with it being one of his two main Achilles heels.

In Superman’s corner are his legions of fans, citing the Man of Steel’s many strengths over Wanda. Literal superhuman strength, superhuman speed, and very wide-eyed laser eyes. Although in all fairness, they both have very menacing red eyes.

Maybe the real winner is the people who have absolutely no dog in this fight and think it’s all immensely mean-spirited and a discussion on the school grounds has gone wild. We might one day see a Marvel / DC crossover film, but until then, let’s all mobilize very strongly around two fictional characters with absolutely different universes. Touch the grass, please.

Plus, Goku could absolutely beat them both and I’ll die on that hill.

If you want a better idea of ​​what Wanda is capable of, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is in theaters now.
