Which Avengers would you choose if you had the chance to build your own Dream Team? There is little doubt that you'll want to have the strongest ones in the bunch. However, a little game shared on Twitter is getting attention for all the wrong reasons. Marvel fans have been defending Scarlet Witch as it was suggested that Black Widow and Hawkeye were more powerful than Wanda Maximoff.

Entertainment Weekly recently posted a tweet inviting fans to "Build Your Own Avengers Team" for only $15. Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and Black Widow would each cost $5. Hawkeye, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, and Black Panther are each for $4 while Loki, Wasp, Gamora, Star-Lord, and Groot cost $3. Rocket, Drax, Nebula, Happy Hogan, and Scarlet Witch were priced at $2 while Vision, Quicksilver, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, and War Machine were for a cool $1 each.

At first, people were delighted that you could build a decent team since some of the more powerful characters were pretty cheap. However, the idea that Scarlet Witch was a lot cheaper than non-powered characters like Black Widow and Hawkeye had fans fuming. After all, it once again proved that people don't seem to understand just how powerful she is despite everything she's done in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It didn't take long before Scarlet Witch started trending on Twitter. Hopefully, all this attention will finally make people realize how underrated Wanda Maximoff truly is considering that she was the only one who single-handedly took on Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.
