Agatha, on the other hand, is a deliberately problematic character and could end up becoming a huge villain in the MCU.

We’ve already seen how powerful Agatha Harkness is, as she often manages to trick Wanda. In the context of Agatha: Circle of Chaoswe could possibly see them more powerful than ever.
