WIZARD SPECIAL: AVENGERS #1 (1999)
Wizard Press

Wizard Magazine's 1999 “Avengers Special” issue featured an interview with Kurt Busiek and George Perez, the writer and artist respectively of the Avengers comics at the time. When asked for a fact about the Avengers that only he would know, Perez declared to the world that Scarlet Witch “rarely wears underwear.”

Looking at Perez’s design for Scarlet Witch, it’s easy to imagine her going commando in that revealing outfit. It might not be the most practical decision for fighting but the costume in general isn’t particularly practical. Perez supposedly created his distinctive design as a way to pay tribute to the character’s Romani heritage, but SOMETHING about it gives the impression that there was an additional motive in the design process, and that motive was fan service!
