But you know, he may be onto something. Because I feel like asking that same question whenever I see the following scene, where Wanda is on the ropes because of...

Jeez, Wanda, could you be any more distraught? Don't your hexes work on ants??

By the way, that crack you made about accepting defeat gracefully? Yeah, not so much here.

Which brings us back to the Enchantress. It seems that writer Roy Thomas thought it was reasonable to have Wanda occasionally face off against this Asgardian sorceress as if she had a chance of winning.
