Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch looms large on the cover of McGuire’s What If…? novel, which is due to arrive in bookstores in July 2024. The artwork also depicts Wanda and Peter Parker/Spider-Man confronting the former’s main-continuity sibling, Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver.
Check out the cover for What If…Wanda Maximoff and Peter Parker Were Siblings? below:
“All Wanda has ever known is her friendly little neighborhood in Queens. As an infant, after her parents died, she was adopted into a family where her doting Aunt May and Uncle Ben will always be at the breakfast table. One that includes her idiot brother, Peter Parker, who thinks hiding a spider bite, joining a secret fight club, and becoming a superhero are somehow good ideas,” the official synopsis for What If…Wanda Maximoff and Peter Parker Were Siblings? reads.
“When Wanda’s own powers emerge, blood, chaos, and suspicion follow in their wake. But as she harnesses her power under the guidance of Doctor Strange, Peter is standing beside her in the Sanctum Sanctorum. And as they try to protect New York City, the Parker siblings learn that with great powers, there must also come great responsibilities — and greater loss,” it continues.
“Reeling from tragedy, Wanda finds herself truly alone for the first time in her life. Peter is lost to his own grief, and so she must strike out on her own. But on her first solo outing, she runs into a mysterious speedster — a man named Pietro. And everything she has ever known shatters like glass,” the synopsis concludes. “Faced with unbelievable truths, Wanda is forced to choose between the life she knows and the life she could have.”
