Twin superheroes and Avengers, The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver have quickly become two of the world’s most interesting characters based on their cinematic debuts and being the children of X-Men super villain/anti-hero, Magneto. Well not quite! It seems Marvel Comics has revealed a new twist and it is a doozy for the Master of Magnetism! Apparently, The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are not related to Magneto.
Recently, a few of Marvel’s heroes and villains were affected by a spell that made heroes villains and vice versa. To keep The Scarlet Witch from killing Dr. Doom, Magneto and Quicksilver joined forces to take her down. She in turn casts a spell to disable anyone blood related to her–only her brother is affected. Realizing that she and Magneto are not related. After a spell is cast by another magician returning the heroes and villains to normal, she is personally happy not to be related to the villain. This leaves the question of who are the twins’ father? Marvel has yet to unveil their paternity, but alleges that the twins may not be mutants at all, but Inhumans instead!
As you know an Inhumans movie is slated for release on November 2, 2018. With the twin heroes already on the Silver Screen as Avengers will this lead to an appearance of the regular Inhumans cast, expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe? That is what rumors are pointing to. Well Magneto may not be their father, but he is back to being a villain meaning more run-ins with The X-Men, who he has been a prominent member of the last few years. We will keep you posted!
