If Marvel goes through with a retcon, I'll be deeply disappointed. People's heads didn't explode when they found out Magneto is the father of the twins in the comics. Heck, Elizabeth Olsen mentioned it in interviews! It's a superficially-motivated, thoughtless, and destructive alteration, it's anti-storytelling basically. Also, Wanda doesn't completely hate Magneto the way it's being depicted, even Remender himself had her say this whole inner monologue during Axis about how she has sympathy and compassion for him but that she was hurt he never changed for her. So clearly she still seeks some kind of approval from him, he's not completely EEEEEEVIL to her.
That being said, I think the High Evolutionary is lying. Here's why...
1) Why give the kids back to Marya and Django? He crushed his first daughter's skull, why was it important to spare them?
2) So, he sent Luminous after them just so she could beat them up and so he could criticize them? Please. They must be of some value to him, he could've had them killed quite easily.
3) What better way to catch the twins off guard than to taunt them with their messed up upbringing? It's always compelled them to return to Wundagore and, thus, be within proximity of the High Evolutionary.
I think it's all to do with CHTHON still.
