What do you consider to be the worst retcon?
Where do I begin. Spider-man’s powers being magic in origin, Goku’s reason for being sent to Earth, Bruce’s inspiration for becoming Batman, Wanda and Quicksilver no longer being Magneto’s children, Bobby Drake turning gay, Ollie and Dinah, Mjølnir being a sentient being and the list goes on.
@adamtrmm: It usually was. magneto was a horrible father especially to Pietro and while he did love them he looked down on them multiple times due to their want to be heroes and always attempted to drag them back into to mutant war . Wanda and Lie to loved Erik more than he ever really showed them especially to the ladder. The only person they loved more were each other and their kids and Erik continuee to not be the best as a father.
I agree Pietro and Wanda are better off when not always matched with their father but the connection was always good for all their characters even at their lowest showing how complicated of s family they are. You cant hate Pietro and Wanda but not speak on Magneto own issues which are the root for most of that hate
Thing is he never really was a father to them. They grew up with different people raising them, and when he 'recruited' them to Brotherhood the entire time they weren't even aware of the relationship. Which is actually pretty stupid considering QS is a supposed copy of Magneto,while same is also right for Wanda and Magda. Magneto even searched for them at some point. Though I can't remember if he was aware it was twins. Point is the retcon with the whole continuity baggage seems really convoluted in the first place. And by retcon I mean here the original one, where it was revealed they are Mags' children. Yes it also was a retcon. So it wasn't until Wanda's marriage with Vision where it was revealed and by that point Wanda herself was a mother. I don't even think they interacted again until Genosha and Magneto's return to villainy, which just shows what poor job was done to explore them as a family.
In a perfect world, we would've had a well developed and progressed relationship of this family. But it isn't how things are with Marvel. They are truly terrible with relationships unless it's FF. So this REretcon is for the better.
