WandaVision Post-Credits Scene: Where Is Wanda's Hideaway?

Learn about Mount Wundagore!

WandaVision has concluded it's run, and while Wanda's Hex on Westview came to an end, the series left fans with plenty of dangling plot threads to be carried on into the future of the MCU.

In the finale, after taking down the Hex and saying a heartbreaking goodbye to Vision and their children, Wanda briefly meets with Monica Rambeau. Wanda apologises for the pain she has caused, promising that she will learn to understand and control her powers, and despite all that has transpired, the two women part on relatively good terms. In the final post credits scene, Wanda appears to have taken refuge in an isolated cabin at the bottom of a mountain as she studies spells from the Darkhold.

But just where is this quiet little hideaway? Fans theorise that Wanda's cabin is located near a location from the comics, known alternately as Wundagore Mountain, or Mount Wundagore. Why is this place important?

Here's everything you need to know.

Birthplace of The Darkhold

In ancient times, the Darque Hold, a chamber deep inside the caverns of Mount Wundagore, was used by an evil Chaos God, Chthon, to write a book of Black Magic that came to be known as the Darkhold. Chthon hoped that the Darkhold would eventually be used to spread his evil influence throughout humanity.

Sometime in the sixth century, the Sorceress Morgana LeFay and her followers, the Darkholders, summoned Chthon. However, after realising they had no way of controlling the Chaos God, the Darkholders imprisoned Chthon inside Mount Wundagore. Due to Chthon's presence within the Mountain, the clay and wood in the surrounding area became imbued with magic.

Eventually, Mount Wundagore became the base of operations of the Genetecist Herbert Wyndham, who eventually became known as the High Evolutionary. He was originally accompanied by his assistant, Jonathan Drew, and Drew's daughter, Jessica, and the pair used the proceeds from a large deposit of Uranium they discovered to build a highly advanced scientific research centre. Unfortunately, exposure to the Uranium lead to Jessica becoming ill. She was treated with a combination of spider-serum and Wyndham's technology, a process that led to her eventually becoming the superhero Spider-Woman. After Jessica recovered, she and Jonathan left Wundagore.

After the Drew's departure, Wyndham continued his experiments, eventually creating the 'New Men', animals with human behaviour and intelligence. Due to his experiments bringing about what he believed to be the next stage in evolution for both humans and animals, Wyndham came to believe himself a sort of God, naming himself the High Evolutionary. The High Evolutionary had many of his New Men trained in combat for a battle against Chthon, with this fighting force soon becoming known as the Knights of Wundagore.

At one point, it was believed that Wanda and Pietro Maximoff were born on Mount Wundagore on the eve of the battle between Chthon and the Knights of Wundagore, after their Mother sought refuge at the High Evolutionary's facility. Later, it was revealed that this was not the case. The twins were the children of Natalya Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch at that time. When the High Evolutionary raided Natalya's home town in search of human test subjects, a local Priest, believing that the Evolutionary was a demon sent as punishment for embracing Natalya's witchcraft, offered the newborn Maximoff twins as a sacrifice.

Natalya travelled to Mount Wundagore to retrieve her children, and while she was too late to prevent them from being experimented on, and was believed killed in the process, the High Evolutionary respected her efforts, and eventually allowed Wanda and Pietro to be returned to the care of Natalya's brother, Django and his wife, Marya. While Pietro's super speed was a result of the High Evolutionary's experiments, Wanda is believed to have been touched by Chthon, boosting her natural magical ability.

The Wundagore Everbloom

Mount Wundagore is also the home of a rare magical plant, the Wundagore Everbloom. The plant only grows in the Mountain's shadow passes. Legend states that consuming a petal from the Everbloom will allow a person to see the future. Because of this myth, it is common for Market Stalls in the vicinity of the Mountain to sell fake, dyed Everblooms. In one comic, Wanda and Agatha Harkness spend some time laughing at tourists gagging on the dyed petals.

In the 2015 The Vision comic, Vision and his newly built wife, Virginia, proudly show off a potted Everbloom that had been a housewarming gift from his ex-wife, Wanda. A later issue reveals that the plant had originally been Agatha's Wedding gift to Wanda and Vision.

While it is true the Wundagore Everbloom can allow a person to see the future, the process is much more complicated, and unpleasant, than first thought. The petal must be consumed not once, but twice. Once after hunger, and once after murder. Agatha once kills her cat, Ebony, to trigger an Everbloom premonition.

What this means for the MCU

If Wanda's little cabin is in fact situated at Mount Wundagore, she may be about to get herself in trouble all over again. In WandaVision's post credits scene, Wanda's astral form is studying and casting spells from the Darkhold, possibly trying to find a way to revive her twin sons. However, as mentioned earlier, the Darkhold was created by the Chaos God, Chthon.

In the comics, increased use of the Darkhold grants Chthon influence in the world, and possibly even summons him. Wanda may accidentally summon Chthon, or release him from captivity in Mount Wundagore.

This could lead to the events of Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, but we'll have to wait until the film is released next year to find out for sure.
