Mysterium is a new metal that first appeared in 2020’s S.W.O.R.D. #1 is an extremely durable metal, which can currently only be created by the world’s mutations. Mysterium was formed in the White Hot Room — a plane of being that serves as a shelter for the Phoenix, its hosts. Mysterium has a variety of powerful properties including the ability to conduct electricity and negate magic.
The new metal Scarlet Witch possesses and Polaris possesses appears to have antimagic abilities that surpass Mysterium. While Wanda was examining Scarlet Witch#2, Wanda commented, “So many unknown things in such a small rock. But not cold iron. Not Orichalcum. Uru. They could not resist my magic. Any spells or Inquests will float about you.”

Scarlet Witch has been a keeper of Emporium for a year and is always looking out for unusual artifacts, cryptic metals, and other unusual items. Wanda opened her shop in Scarlet Witch#1, telling people that her business venture was intended to sell magical items to people in crisis. Scarlet Witch, a character from the Marvel universe, has been able to assist a range of characters, including Viv Vision.
Wanda’s desire is to help people after years of suffering. This includes her relationship with Vision, which was difficult, as well as her ties with Magneto. In Issue #1 Quicksilver initially laughed about his sister’s business plan but was actually impressed by her secretly.
