Wanda had met a lot of interesting people in her time as an Avenger. One of them was a man by the name of Marc Spector. It had all started when he had made an outburst at a press conference that the Avengers had been holding. She had followed him and when she had met him in a stairwell, she'd been surprised by how distressed he seemed. What followed was one of the most interesting conversations that she'd ever had. They had vastly different opinions on how to deal with criminals.
He had believed that they needed to die. There was no point in arresting them if they were just going to keep getting out and causing more trouble. She could understand why he felt that way. There were times that she felt the same, especially when it pertained to people like HYDRA. They would never stop their mad quest for power. They would continue to hurt people and that was all that they cared about.
But Wanda believed that they couldn't be the judge, jury, and executioner. She had killed before in the past, but she was trying to actively be a better hero now. She was trying to be better than the villains that plagued their world. She wanted to make life better for the innocents and she knew she couldn't do that if she was committing the same sins that criminals were. She believed everyone deserved a second chance. In all honesty, they should likely have come to blows.
Instead, they had sat on those stairs and had shared a conversation. She had met him once again more weeks and months later and had discovered he was Moon Knight. That meeting had been less civil and she had been there on official Avengers business. He'd gotten away and then he'd disappeared. She hadn't been able to find him again.
"Hello?" Wanda called as she walked through the alleyway in Hell's Kitchen. She hadn't been here for a long time, but she had a hunch. The murder rate of criminals had gone back up in the last few months. She needed to get to the bottom of it. Hopefully, this time if it was Marc, it wouldn't end in a fight. It was why she had come as Wanda Maximoff and not the Scarlet Witch.
She'd been following the trail and while she was no master detective, she was a telepath and that had brought her here. She paused where she was standing, looking around. It was almost too quiet.
