Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday and Emma Myers’ Enid have their relationship perfectly captured in beautiful new fan art from a DC Comics artist.
New Wednesday fan art perfectly captures the personality of lead character Jenna Ortega and her best friend, Enid (Emma Myers). Ortega stars as the eponymous Wednesday Addams in the Netflix series, which has become the second most-watched English-language series in the streamer’s history. On Wednesday, the main character joins Nevermore Academy, a school for outcast teenagers with supernatural powers, while investigating a series of murders involving a rare monster, her parents’ tragic past and a prophecy that directly links the young girl to destruction. from Nevermore.
Artist Gabriel Picolo shared new fan art on Twitter that perfectly depicts Wednesday and Enid’s relationship, as well as the characters’ personalities.
Wednesday’s recent Season 2 renewal has inspired a flurry of new fan art to celebrate the continuation of the hit show. DC Comics artist Picolo decided to create a new piece that depicts the “golden retriever/black cat dynamic” of Enid and Wednesday, in his own words. The art is in the signature style of Picolo who rose to fame with a “Casual Teen Titans” line of artwork, earning him a Teen Titans comic book series in DC.
How Wednesday and Enid’s relationship was the heart of the show
Wednesday followed the character of Ortega as she transitioned from a regular school to Nevermore Academy, which was her parents’ school in the past and is a place that allows outcast supernatural children to study in an environment relatively safe. Wednesday’s cast of characters included students from different types of monster backgrounds. Mermaids, gorgons, vampires and several other supernatural creatures frequently made their way into daily life on Wednesday, but no one impacted the Addams girl more than the werewolf Enid.
Upon her arrival at Nevermore Academy, Wednesday was unhappy to learn that she would have to share her room with another student, Enid Sinclair, who quickly proved to be Wednesday’s polar opposite in virtually every way. While Wednesday possesses an emotionless personality and is full of doom and gloom, Enid possesses a bubbly and positive personality. One of Wednesday’s funniest early moments comes from the scene where she splits their bedroom right in the middle, her side being completely dark, while Enid’s stands out with its bright colors. During the show, Wednesday would warm up to Enid, with her roommate becoming her de facto best friend and the person behind Wednesday opening up more about her feelings. Their friendship became the heart of the show.
Could Wednesday and Enid be more than friends in Season 2?
Wednesday had two main romantic options throughout Season 1. Psychic Xavier did his best to impress the girl, who showed glimpses of connecting, but was ultimately left for another choice, Tyler. Wednesday and Tyler built a compelling relationship during Season 1, with the two going on missions together. Unfortunately, Tyler was revealed to be the monster behind the murders and any relationship with Wednesday ended. An Enid romance in Wednesday’s Season 2 could be in the cards for Ortega’s character, with many fans of the show supporting the idea and the show’s creators not ruling it out. Wednesday’s season 2 has also been confirmed to deepen the titular character’s relationship with her best friend, fueling speculation that the duo will become more than friends.
