Must See Episodes
Agatha Harkness has some connections to the Salem Witch Trials, during which time she and several of her cohorts (true witches) escaped the Puritan persecution and settled in a protected location somewhere in the Rocky Mountains to the west. Agatha Harkness has extended her life by the use of her magic, and has been instrumental in the teaching of other witches in her Coven. At the behest of her old friend Mystique, undertook the teaching of the mutant Wanda Maximoff, helping her to focus her powers into something more easily controlled.
Powers and Abilities
Agatha Harkness is a witch and possesses a great mastery of the mystical arts. She derives her powers from the manipulation of the forces of magic. She has the ability to manipulate magical forces for a number of effects, including teleportation, energy projection, and the tapping of extra-dimensional energy by invoking entities or objects of power existing in dimensions tangential to Earth's through the recitation of spells. She also has the abilities of mesmerism, thought-casting, and illusion-casting. Agatha Harkness's advanced age reduces her ability to perform strenuous physical tasks. Also, Agatha Harkness has a gifted intellect, and a vast knowledge of magical lore.
Season 2As the doctor and Wanda escape and when they make it outside, they meet up with an old woman. The woman then begins chanting to Wanda in what sounds like Gaelic thus calming her as she falls into the woman's arms. The doctor morphs into Mystique as she tells the woman to keep Wanda under control while Mystique goes back inside the asylum, saying that she has some other business to attend to while morphing into a secruity guard.
Later at the Brotherhood house, Mystique tells the boys that they have a new secret weapon as she introduces them to Wanda. When she sees Pietro, Wanda freaks out and starts to bring the house down as the boys run. Finally Agatha arrives and takes control of Wanda, calming her down again and leaving the room with her.Pietro tries to tell Mystique that Wanda is too dangerous to have around. Mystique tells him that she brought along Agatha to help Wanda learn to focus her anger and turn it into unbeatable power.
Meanwhile, Agatha is having a training session with Wanda on how to defeat her rage. But Wanda's anger is far too strong to overcome in the first two sessions. Every time she just about gains control, Wanda has more flashbacks of being left in the asylum and loses it. Eventually, however, Wanda overcomes this and later cuts her hair.
