Old Marvel Comics NYC map teaches us that the Scarlet Witch lives in New Jersey

Comic fans will remember that the Scarlet Witch went bonkers several years ago and rewrote most of reality on a whim a few times.

According to Marvel Comics' lore, it's because she discovered that her children were mystical figments of her imagination, but we have a much more banal explanation.*

And according to this diagram from one of the many Official Handbooks to the Marvel Universe — via this neat article on superhero architecture — it's because she settled down in Leonia, New Jersey. Who knew?


*For whatever it's worth, I've spent a little over 25 years living somewhere in the Garden State.
