One of the many fan theories surrounding WandaVision was that Stephen Strange would appear and help Wanda navigate the hex, while also setting up the Scarlet Witch’s appearance in Doctor Strange and the multiverse of madness next year. In the end, however, Wanda was responsible for creating and destroying the hex. The show’s stricter focus on her, Vision, and her children meant that the story could focus entirely on Wanda’s grief at losing her family.
However, there was a small nod to Strange when Agatha claimed that the legendary Scarlet Witch is said to be more powerful than the Sorcerer Supreme. With that statement, Wanda really could be the strongest Avenger.
