Here's one: The Stinger portrays Mordo believing that the world has "too many sorcerers", and he is willing to take away the powers of as many Magic-users as possible. Of course, not only Strange, Wong, and their fellow Masters are in peril, but another prominent magic user: Wanda Maximoff. Obviously, Mordo would have been aware of Wanda's magic by seeing her exploits with the Avengers. This is especially horrific when you remember that Wanda, as per the ending of Civil War, is currently a fugitive with the rest of Cap's Avengers and is emotionally distraught over the death of her brother Pietro. Furthermore, Wanda's mastery of her magical abilities is rudimentary at best, and she would have no chance going up against a former Master of the Mystic Arts. Strange and the Avengers are going to have a LOT on their plate.

There is a problem with that entry: Wanda does not have magical powers in the MCU. She may develop them later, as in comic books, but right now they are just "weird" powers caused by the infinity stone. No one described them as magic in-universe (I'm not sure if she even got to be called a "witch"), and if it is magic because of their source, then Quicksilver and the Vision would be sorcerers as well. Still, I wouldn't like to simply remove the whole entry. Is there a way to rewrite it?

Yeah, there's no sign that her "magic" is the same as this type of magic. Mordo wants to stop people from using sorcery that taps into power from alternate dimensions, which Wanda's probably does not do.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

How well does it match the trope?
