Uh oh…. it’s not good to throw some surprises the Scarlet Witch’s way
Wanda Maximoff is back from the dead, and in a preview of October 20’s X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #3 she has questions. No, not who killed her. (Although that’s a good one). Instead, it’s who the heck is Vision’s wife if not her?
Check out this preview of X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #3 by writer Leah Williams and artist Lucas Werneck:X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #3X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #3If the Scarlet Witch appears to be acting strangely, you’re not wrong; she was resurrected in X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #2 – but not from her recent death, but instead an old back-up of her from Cerebro’s files back when she was considered a mutant – and that’s been a while.
Apparently, she’s been restored from a time not only before Vision created a new family with Virginia Vision, but way back when she and the Vision were a happy couple. 
Seems like she has a lot to catch up on, especially the events of House of M, The Vision, and the more recent revelations that she’s no longer a mutant and Magneto isn’t really her father.
Oh yeah, and also who killed her. Remember, Magneto is at the top of our list of suspects in Wanda’s murder.
That big of an info dump might prompt Wanda to do something unpredictable, which could make her “judge, jury, and hexecutioner” as Marvel’s marketing description of this issue frames things.
Valerio Schiti has drawn the primary cover to X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #3, with variants by Bryan Hitch, Oscar Vega, Peach Momoko, and Joe Jusko.

This classic version of Wanda echoes the classic version of Doctor Strange that took over in Death of Doctor Strange #1, which adds fuel to the fire that the two murders are somehow connected.
