Agatha Harkness's History

Agatha Harkness is a witch from Salem, Massachusetts, who was accused of practicing dark magic by her own coven during the Salem witch trials. Several hundred years later in 2023, she sensed the presence of chaos magic radiating from the Hex in Westview, created by Wanda Maximoff. Unfazed by her thrall over the population, Harkness became fascinated and obsessed with attempting to harness Wanda's power. Living under the pretense of the WandaVision sitcom, Harkness stole Ralph Bohner's house and posed as his housewife Agnes, Maximoff's nosy neighbor, all the while interfering with her idyllic paradise to her own benefit. Harkness was ultimately defeated by Maximoff, who became the Scarlet Witch, and subsequently brainwashed her into living out her life as Agnes in Westview.
