Left Unresolved – What the Heck is Behind the Scarlet Witch’s Closed Doors?

In this feature, I spotlight storylines that have been, well, left unresolved. Click here for an archive of all storylines featured so far.

Today, based on a suggestion from reader Jason M., we try to figure out what the heck was behind the locked doors in Scarlet Witch’s house in New Avengers #26 (this story has been referred to so many times as being about Scarlet Witch’s CLOSET that I originally intended on just sticking with that terminology. I decided to change it the more accurate “closed doors”, but I kept it as closet for our CBR headline because its more famously known as the closet story)…

In Avengers #503 (by Brian Michael Bendis, David Finch and Danny Miki), it is revealed that the architect behind the events of Avengers Disassembled (including the deaths of a number of Avengers) was none other than their own teammate, Wanda Maximoff, otherwise known as the Scarlet Witch, who had basically just went nuts…

In The House of M (by Brian Michael Bendis, Olivier Coipel and a bunch of inkers), the Avengers ponder what to do with the Scarlet Witch, who had been taken by her father Magneto at the end of Avengers Disassembled. Her brother, Quicksilver, freaked out and convinced the unstable Scarlet Witch to use her reality-altering powers to change the world so that mutants were in control of the world.

When the Avengers realized what was going on, they took the fight to Magneto and it led to a traumatized Scarlet Witch to use her powers seemingly one last time…

In the final issue of the series, we see what happened to the various characters involved in the House of M (who lost their powers and who had their powers spared by a Doctor Strange spell). We also see that Wanda is seemingly powerless living in Transia, at the foot of Mount Wundagore, which is where she was born…

Now you see, during Avengers Disassembled, Hawkeye was killed. During House of M, Scarlet Witch brought Hawkeye back to life. After House of M, Hawkeye remained alive and, well, you know, seriously confused.

So he seeks out Wanda in Transia and he finds her…

And then the really weird stuff happens.
