Mini Bio: Not a lot is known about Agatha Harkness, but this is what is known. Agatha first turned up as a nanny to Franklin Richards, the son of Reed and Sue Richards of the Fantastic Four, and was revealed to be a witch when she saved Franklin from being kidnapped.
For a while, she tutored Scarlet Witch in witchcraft, before she was burned at the stake by a community of witches. But, she didn’t stay completely dead for long – she appeared in astral form to Wanda and has followed her round for an extended period of time. She’s worked alongside Wanda, as well as against Wanda, over the years, and generally follows her own path.
