Most fans now understand that Scarlet Witch has opened a new shop. This shop just so happens to have a very special door that brings the desperate directly to her. This is how Wanda hopes to help those in need. The latest person to wander through her door is from Sub-Atomica, meaning Wanda is about to get very tiny to deal with this latest threat.

My Review:

I’m not ashamed to admit that the Polaris cameo was a total surprise for me. I probably would have been less surprised had I known that the two were half-sisters. I know, bad me. Moving on. Scarlet Witch #3 starts with our X-Men cameo, which is only the tip of the iceberg for this issue.

The Sub-Atomica plot was okay overall. It was interesting, though probably not my cup of tea. There’s a lot of information shared over a short period of time. Readers tend to have divided opinions on that sort of thing, so take what you will from that.

I probably would have rated this issue a 3 ½ if not for the other plot that (finally) rears its head. We’ve known for three issues now that something is going on with Darcy Lewis. And no, I’m not talking about the fact that she popped from the MCU into the comic verse. So it’s nice to see that plot moving forward, even if it ends the issue on a cliffhanger.

All that said, the artwork for this issue is really solid. Love the colors and the way Sub-Atomica is portrayed. I wouldn’t have minded a few more close-ups during these moments, as I feel like it would have helped ground the story, but I’ll take what I can get!

  • Sun-Atomica
  • Darcy Lewis Plot Thickens
