Celebrity Claim- Elizabeth Olsen
Wanda Marya MaximoffNicknames/Aliases-
37Date of Birth-
Wanda at one time when she was young was quiet, demure and didn’t make a lot of waves. That was until life kicked her in the butt a few too many times and she had to get tough. She is still quiet and doesn’t make a lot of waves, but has no problem being the solution to the problem if necessary. She doesn’t take a lot of nonsense from anyone, not even her brother Pietro even though she is the younger twin.
Wanda is also very much a caretaker, even going so far as to boss her twin around when she thinks that he’s not doing what he’s supposed to or when he’s being stubborn (usually trying to take care of her when she doesn’t want/need him to.) She has a big heart and a huge capacity for caring that an often get her into trouble. She can care too much and will even sometimes find herself getting involved in things she has no business in the middle of because she can’t seem to make herself NOT care.
In this same way, Wanda is often the person that will take in a stray puppy or give a homeless man the change in her pocket because she has been the stray puppy, the homeless veteran on the street barely surviving. In this she is always a defender of the weak and misfortunate, but by her rules and on her terms.
With everything that has happened to her in her life, Wanda is a very cautious person and always looks before she leaps into anything unless it is helping other. That is the one thing that she will always give into without question, the need and desire to help someone that can’t really help themselves.Likes-

Power Name-Telekinesis Description-
Wanda has the ability to move, levitate, and even immobilize objects and people with the benefit of not having to physically touch them. This ability allows here to control the motion of any target allowing her to freeze and contain an explosion for a short amount of time. She is also able to affect molecules and particles, as wells as physical forces such as kinetic energy, friction, pressure, density, state of matter and even gravity.
- Energy Blasts- When using her powers, Wanda generates a unique reddish energy from her hands, and can use this energy to emit a blast of energy in varying forms such as: a blast, an orb, a wave, or a bolt by gathering particles, molecules and physical forces into a small area of containment thus allowing her to thrust, push/pull, blow, destroy or otherwise direct her hit to the person she is fighting. .These contained spaces could be in any shape and form and outlined her telekinetic spheres of influence, making her telekinesis visible and in reddish color. When a target of hers is hit with her energy, she can use her telekinesis to inflict further damage.She can also generate a bolt of psionic energy to project light.
- Levitation- Wanda is able to use this power to move herself through the air and simulate flight.
- Shields- Wanda is also able to generate strong durable psionic shields to protect herself and others or to deflect attack.
Concentration plays a huge part in this particular ability. The heavier the object the more concentration it takes to lift or stop if in motion up to and not exceeding 7 tons (the equivalent of 7 grand pianos). If the object in question is in motion (such as a car or a train) weight and velocity also play a factor. The physical mass of her target (whether sentient or not) can also cause a strain present a problem. The larger, heavier, and faster an object is the more difficult it is for her to control.Matter Manipulation-Description-
Through her telekinesis, Wanda is able to manipulate and reform matter on a molecular level. This means that she can alter any object and reshape it in the image she chooses, or tear it to pieces and leave it that way. This power is manifest the same way the telekinesis is, as a red mist emitting from her hands.Limitations-
Animals and people can not be taken apart with this ability. Aside from this, as long as it's not made of flesh and blood it can and does fall under her control. Power Name- Neuro-Electric Interface and PhobikinesisDescription-
Wanda is also able to read the minds of other sentient beings and deploy a form or mental inertness wherein she can cause them to live in their deepest fears. She first senses the vulnerability through the neuro-electrical interface then using that connection she freezes the part of the brain that senses reality and allows those deep fears to seep in and take over in the form of an illusion/hallucination. When she is doing this, the energy emitting from her hands becomes a reddish mist that floats into her victim’s head in the form of neurons. The sign of this effect is a discoloration of the iris of the eye causing them to take on a reddish shine. She is also able to control or manipulate the actions, thoughts, memories, movements, senses and emotions of other people at will and can induce sleep and create illusions without much difficulty.
Please note that any invasion of the mind that can take away the willpower of another character will be discussed with the writer of that character in the plotting process. Nothing will be done to another character without the consent of their typist.Limits-
This is the biggest and most major of Wanda’s abilities and it can take a great deal of energy and focus. It also depends on her will and confidence in doing what she is doing. If her heart isn’t in it, it’s not going to work. She has to feel like she CAN what she is trying to do in order to accomplish it. The more confident she feels the less draining it will be and the easier it is for her to focus and do what she needs to do
It is also important to note that Wanda’s powers are still subject to the laws of physics in most respects especially pertaining to matter manipulation. She is not bending the laws of physics when she controls the states of matter. She is restructuring the molecules within the thing she is messing with, like turning ice to water, then water to steam and vice versa.
Another drawback is that her powers manifest in a very visible fashion (red energy/mist from her hands). In order to use some of the telepathic abilities, particularly the neuro-electic interfacing and the fear manipulation she has to be stealthy so as not to get caught. And being stealthy isn’t exactly easy in 4in heels. She can manage and does so often, but in order to manipulate the
mind she must be able to get close and do so quietly.
Any physical injury to her head, such an an electrical shock, can cease her abilities temporarily. Once she is recovered from the injury, no matter how long the injury lasts, she can use her powers once again to little or no ill affect. She is also limited to one person at a time where he telepathic abilities are involved.
Sometimes when using her telepathic physical touch can determine the strength of the reading. This can be a negative in that touching the target of the reading can become overwhelming, to the point where they may cause physical pain. She must be cautious who she touches when reading their mind because it can become overwhelming.Skills & Abilities-
Wanda is bilingual, speaking Serbian (her native tongue) and English, having learned English while in school.
5’7” - 6’ depending on if she is flat footed or not and the height of the heelsWeight-
Wanda’s style can be characterized as feminine and functional. She likes to keep herself looking nice and does as little with her naturally wavy hair as possible. She is just as comfortable in a short dress paired with a red jacket and hiking boots as she is in a corset, leather pants and knee high boots. As long as she has the room to move her arms so that she can properly defend herself with her powers and a firm footing, she’s fine.
Wanda likes to take care of her body by working out semi-regularly and likes to wear clothes that reflect that care and attention. Often she will been seen wearing two necklaces- one shorter to rest over her heart; the other longer, typically having a medallion or amulet that reaches to her navel. Overall, so long as she looks nice and can move in the garment you find her wearing it in either black or red.Gear-
Aside from a flowing red duster, black leather, and black boots she doesn’t typically carry anything other than her cell phone.Additional Information-
Wanda is ambidextrous, meaning that she is able to use both hands equally when doing different tasks such as writing and eating.
Stari Slankamen, SerbiaImmediate Family-
Natalya Maximoff- Mother (deceased), Pietro Maximoff - Twin brotherOthers-
Wanda grew up in a small fishing village in Serbia with her mother and older twin brother Pietro. The first ten years were almost magical. The small family didn’t have much, but they had each other. Wanda ended up being very close to her mother, who had certain gifts that made her popular with the some of the locals. Others thought that she was a devil and shouldn’t be there. Still they lived in relative peace for several years, their mother doing what she could to provide for their small family. That was until the time the twins were about the age of ten when the ones that wanted their mother around were outnumbered by those that didn’t. As the family sat down for dinner one cool autumn night the villagers came, determined to run the witch out of the village. When the shouting outside their little home started their mother ran them out the back, telling them not to come back, just before the flames started to engulf the house. All the twins could do was run as far as they could and hide when their legs couldn’t carry them any longer, following their mother's instructions. There was no going back to their village. They knew their mother was dead.
She and Pietro eventually taught themselves how to live off of the land for the most part and never stayed in one place for too long. When they would come to a town or village they would steal what supplies they could and move on, finding a cave to hide in, or building a small shelter so that they would be out of the elements, Pietro always doing what he could to take care of and protect his sister. Orphaned and alone save having each other, the twins came into their powers around the age of 12. Wanda discovered that she could levitate objects, and paired with the speed that her brother came into they were the slickest of thieves. Wanted posters without pictures went up all across the country. Upon coming into Belgrade, as they were stealing a few things to eat and a couple of blankets because it was getting colder Wanda got a little too brave and tried to steal from the butcher only to be seen by a US Relief worker there to help take care of the Serbian people during a war involving Yugoslavia. The kind woman bought the piece of meat that Wanda was trying to steal so that she and her brother could eat. Upon questioning Wanda the young girl told the woman that she and her twin brother were orphans and took her to her brother. When Pietro saw her with the strange woman he rushed forward and scooped his sister up, taking off with her into the woods. Wanda begged her brother to trust her, telling him how the woman bought the food she had tried to steal and wanted to get them out of the cold, eventually taking them to the safety of the United States. Pietro, trusting his sister, took them back where they sat down with the lady and told her their story. She told them they could have a better life , even a family, in the US. When the children agreed she took them to a shelter for the night then they were off to the United States and a new life.
Once they were placed with their first family and put in school Wanda proved to be a good student, learning English quickly and enjoying learning about classical literature, history, and science even though they bounced from foster home to foster home, never knowing a stable place to live. Finally once they were 18, the twins went their way with Wanda going to school to study Literature. During this time Wanda met a man and thought she fell in love, ending up pregnant and alone save for her brother and eventually learned that she was carrying two wonderful boys. She even craved chocolate shakes the entire pregnancy. She had been approached by several people about adoption but she told them no. That was something she'd never had an interest in because who could give her boys a better life than she could have. The opportunity to prove it never came. When she finally gave birth her boys were rushed out of the room immediately, their mother being told they weren't breathing. About fifteen minutes later a nurse came in and told her that both of her boys were still born and couldn't be brought around. Wanda was devastated but there was nothing she could do. She was released and went home empty handed. Depressed she withdrew from her classes for a short time so that she could mourn and decide what she was going to do with herself. Once she was healed physically and had crawled out of the dark hole of depression after her boys died she endeavored to go back to school. That was, until the single event that would take her from studying literature to being more politically active than she ever dreamed.
At the age of 21, she and her brother witnessed a man who called himself Magneto attacked the Cape Citadel Missile Base in Florida. There were others like them. So many others just like them. They hid what they were from the world, just like Wanda and Pietro had been doing most of their lives. It was time the mutants, people like them, had at least a voice. So, into the political arena they went. Protests and rallies became their life blood, especially for Wanda who watched the political state and human/mutant relations plummet. She couldn’t sit back and do nothing and still can’t. She had to do as much as she could, something more so that should she finally have other children 18 years after her twins were stillborn, she can say she was instrumental in creating the country that she wanted her children to grow up in.

Finally, her corset was finished. Now it was off to the shop in Time Square where she had it made. It was a shop she frequented, having several corsets made with different material for different reasons. Some were dressy, some were casual, but all were as functional as they were beautiful. This one would be one that she wore on the streets when she was doing her vigilante thing. Nothing fancy, just red leather pulled over the boning with some minor decorating.
After making a call to a friend to go over with her, Wanda went out and grabbed a taxi to pick her friend up before they made their way toward Time Square. Once the corset was picked up and the maker made sure that it fit properly the red witch paid the good man and went out to do further shopping with her friend to pass the time while her brother was doing whatever it was that he did. While they were close they did have separate lives.
From shop to shop they floated, buying this and that. Wanda herself even picked up a marvelous pair of black leather boots and a gorgeous red leather duster that would got with the new corset perfectly. Laughing and talking the two women walked to a nearby bistro to get a bite of lunch when a rather handsome young man walked passed her. He had a familiar face though she was sure she had never seen him before in all her life. He walked toward what she was sure was a videogame store. She knew the boy. She could feel it, she even did a double take as the boy walked passed. When her friend noticed she asked what was wrong. With a breathlessness that only comes from holding your breath unknowingly, the Serbian woman replied, “I think that was my son.”
