She mentions that at first, she did a ton of analysis about Agatha and was given a “huge binder” from WandaImaginative and prescient producer Mary Livanos, that lined Agatha’s in depth appearances in Marvel Comics. With Agatha rising in so many points, Hahn revealed that ultimately, she “kind of had to throw all that away.” Instead, Hahn recognized what she discovered to be the consistencies of Agatha’s character.
