The Demon Wars series weaves together Marvel classics and Japanese folklore and is set in the world of the yokai, Japanese spirits. “When designing Momiji, Demon Wars’ version of Scarlet Witch, the first thought that came to mind to represent Scarlet Witch was her anger and betrayal,” Momoko said in a statement accompanying the announcement. “So with this in mind, I was inspired to create her around the Hannya idea. Hannya in Japan is used in Noh theater to represent a woman’s anger and jealousy, and these vengeful spirits turn her into a demon.”
