The Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 4 made history as the shortest phase out of the bunch. While it may have only lasted less than two years, there's no denying that it was home to some of the best content the MCU has ever seen, on par with the billion-dollar franchise's previous phases. Kickstarting with WandaVision and ending with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the overall theme was all about legacy and well, opening up the portal to the wondrous multiverse.

Now that we're ushering in a brand new phase in the so-called Multiverse Saga, Marvel fans are looking back on some of the best moments the last year had to offer. On Twitter, MCU diehards began discussing which character ruled the entire phase, and unsurprisingly, Wanda Maximoff's name is on top of the list.

The beloved character, played by Elizabeth Olsen has gained quite a following during Phase 3 but it wasn't until WandaVision premiered that she truly got the opportunity to shine. While the creative direction for the Scarlet Witch, who later became a villain was deemed questionable by many, people still believe that Olsen delivered Phase 4's best acting performance, and quite frankly, it's hard to argue.

As it stands, the 33-year-old star's MCU future remains shrouded in doubt and according to rumors, she's stepping away from the Marvel spotlight for the time being to focus on other acting projects. But given how Wanda has become one of the most popular characters in the Marvel realm, Kevin Feige would be foolish not to bring her back before the Multiverse Saga culminates.

Meanwhile, WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are available to stream only on Disney+.
