Despite having more than enough heroes and villains from the comic books to choose from, Marvel Studios has introduced a fair few original supporting characters over the years. Some have been better than others, but Thor's Darcy Lewis - played by Kat Dennings - remains a firm fan-favourite.
While she vanished after Thor: The Dark World, Darcy would later return in WandaVision before making a cameo appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder. What's next for her remains to be seen, though Darcy will make her comic book debut - following in Agent Coulson's footsteps - in this Wednesday's Scarlet Witch #1.
We've known this would be the case for a while, of course, but this preview reveals that she works at Wanda Maximoff's new store and is clearly a trusted ally.
Darcy also gets to meet the Scarlet Witch's brother, Quicksilver, and it appears both Pietro and Wanda are being given something of a fresh start in the Marvel Universe with this series.
"There is a door that appears only to those who need it most, who have no one else in the world to turn to," reads the solicitation text. "On the other side of this door is the witchcraft shop. Friend or foe, human or otherwise – if your need is great and your hope is gone, there you will meet the Scarlet Witch!"
"Wanda Maximoff is familiar with hitting rock bottom – and now that she’s finally found peace, she’s pledged all her power to help others who are languishing at their lowest. But when a woman falls through Wanda’s door with a terrifying story of a town gone mad, the Scarlet Witch will have to muster her wits and chaos magic to deal with an insidious threat!"
Steve Orlando (Marauders) writes the series, while Sara Pichelli (Ultimate Spider-Man) is on art duty. As for that gorgeous cover, you can thank Russell Dauterman (The Mighty Thor).
