Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) has given us the big Wanda twist. The superheroine became the love of every Marvel fan in WandaVision. But we saw Wanda become the goddess of chaos in the new Dr. Strange movie. The obvious question people have is what Wanda Vs Doctor Strange would look like.
In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, we saw Wanda fight half of the heroes and villains from different multiverses. Wanda’s power also reached supreme levels as she wielded the powers of The Darkhold before destroying it. The new movie thus sparked the age-old debate of who is more powerful than who. With new information, we can try and make some sense of the powers that our wizards have!

Let’s check their powers out one by one. And don’t worry, we will not give any Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness spoilers!

Intelligence: Dr. Strange Is The Clear Winner
A Wanda Vs Dr. Strange comparison will be incomplete without first putting their brains to the test. Stephen Strange is wicked smart, is a surgeon, and has a photographic memory. He has memorized all the books on magic and witchcraft there are in his version of the multiverse. He does not forget anything he reads, and I guess we know where his ego comes from.
This does not mean our Scarlett Witch isn’t smart as heck because she sure is. But when comparing direct intellects and the ability to retain vast amounts of information in a short period, Strange takes the cake.
The Ability To Levitate: Wanda/Scarlet Witch
What’s a superhero that can’t fly, right? (sorry, Captain America!) Wanda is the clear winner in a Wanda Vs Doctor Strange levitation battle. She can use her psionic powers to defy gravity and propel her upwards and fly. This also gives her the ability to cover large distances. On the other hand, Dr. Strange relies on the Cloak of Levitation to make him fly. Numerous instances in the MCU movies have shown comical Dr. Strange looks when he doesn’t have his cloak.
Power To Heal: Wanda/Scarlet Witch
Dr. Strange is an actual doctor and is good at what he does. There is still no direct comparison with the healing powers Wanda possesses. Wanda can manipulate things on a molecular level through telekinesis. Due to this, she can help revive cells and aid them in reconstructing faster. Dr. Strange can also use his magic to aid medical emergencies but not quite on the scale of Wanda.
Manipulation Of Time And Opening Portals: Dr. Strange
It’s no surprise that Dr. Strange is the winner in this Wanda vs Doctor Strange battle. He is known as Master of Time, so that should have been the first giveaway. Dr. Strange can look into the future, change timelines across the real world, and do it in any multiverse. While Wanda can also alter time, her powers are limited to within the hex. Thus real-world changes are not affected.
Real Magical Abilities: Wanda/Scarlett Witch
Dr. Strange is a normal human before becoming a Master of the Mystic Arts. His ability to wield Eldritch Magic depends on how well he memorized spells. On the other hand, Wanda Maximoff is a natural witch as she is born with Chaos Magic inside her. All it takes is concentration and dedication for her to hone her skills throughout her life. So the clear winner is the born sorcerer.
The new Dr. Strange movie gave us a lot of surprises. The climax left us wondering if Wanda is even alive or not. The epic battles in the movie gave new winds to the Wanda Vs Doctor Strange debate, and we hope this article gave you some clarity. What would Wanda Vs Hela look like? Or even Wanda Vs. Thanos and Wanda Vs. Captain Marvel? Let us know your thoughts in the comments sections below!
