Created by Jac Schaeffer, the hugely popular Marvel TV series premiered on Disney+ back in January, and came to a close with its ninth and final episode on March 5.

The show centres on Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), two superheroes living their dream suburban lives in the town of Westview, New Jersey, but they soon begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
