"Wanda? What about Wanda?"
"She's fine. She's confined in the compound currently. Vision's keeping her company."

Following a terrorist attack in Lagos that claimed the lives of numerous Nigerian civilians and eleven relief aid workers from Wakanda, several international politicians, among them Wakanda's reigning monarch T'Chaka, called for the United Nations to create a system of accountability.[1]


MSNBC reporting on the aftermath

Thaddeus Ross, who had recently been appointed Secretary of State by President Matthew Ellis, gathered the Avengers and presented them with the Sokovia Accords, which would establish a panel to monitor and control their movements.

Following the announcement, Tony Stark placed Wanda Maximoff under house arrest in order to avoid another public incident. Vision was tasked with keeping her confined to the New Avengers Facility and not let her leave the premises. 

However, Steve Rogers contacted the now-retired Clint Barton to rescue Maximoff and help him deal with the threat of the Winter Soldiers.[1]


Breaking In

Hawkeye breaks into the Avengers Compound

Vision and Maximoff were asleep when an explosion suddenly went off outside the compound. Vision told Maximoff to stay inside before heading off to investigate.  

Maximoff did as she was told only to realize someone else was in the compound. She used her powers on a nearby kitchen knife to attack the intruder, only to realize that Hawkeye was in the room and that he was responsible for the explosion, which was meant to distract Vision while he rescued her.

Before the two could escape, they were confronted by Vision, who had realized the truth and had returned to foil the attempt.[1]

A Team Divided

"If you do this, they will never stop being afraid of you."
"I can't control their fear. Only my own."

Vision fighting Hawkeye

Vision warned Hawkeye to consider the consequences of his actions only to be stopped when two trick arrows released an electric shock that paralyzed him. Barton then realized Maximoff was not following him towards the exit and learned that she was afraid of the damage she had caused.

As Barton tried motivating her into leaving, Vision broke free from the trap and fought his former ally before easily subduing him.

Scarlet Witch defeating Vision

Maximoff attempted to convince Vision to let Barton go. When he refused, Maximoff reluctantly used her powers to control the Mind Stone and forced him to release Barton before increasing his density and blasting him meters beneath the facility.[1]


"You locked me in my room."
"Okay. First, that's an exaggeration. Second, I did it to protect you."
―Scarlet Witch and Iron Man[src]

Scott Lang meeting Steve Rogers

Barton and Maximoff successfully escaped from the facility before recruiting former petty criminal Scott Lang, who had been personally recommended by Sam Wilson, to their cause. 

The three then made their way to Flughafen Leipzig-Halle Airport, where Rogers, Wilson and Barnes were waiting to take a Quinjet to the HYDRA facility where the other Winter Soldiers were being kept in cryogenic stasis.[1]
