    So, it's been a while sense Axis, and I was wondering how people feel about them retconning it to where Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch aren't Magneto's children now that we've had some time to digest it?

    It never happened, the High Evolutionary is being a prankster brat like he usually is.

    @w0nd: She's still Magneto's daughter. Marvel won't do anything to her, sense they only retconned the twins because there in the MCU (though they'll deny that that's the reason).

    When I read that out loud it makes Marvel sound like children. *sigh* it's so dumb, but fine Marvel whatever.

    Didn't really care was never a fan of the twins, only liked Polaris. I'm still waiting for a young mutant to murder Scarlet Witch for "No more mutants"

    I still wonder why Magneto isn't hitting anything and increasing the size of his family. We can't get enough of his borreby comments about the mutant-kind, that one would guess he should be fathering as many mutants as possible.

    Didn't like before & still don't like it. Stupid retcons like this should not be done because of something in other media that has nothing to do with the main comics themselves.

    @zerdn: because caring about the fate of your people doesn't automatically make a man turn into a serial sperm dispenser, especially when there is a chance that some of his offspring will not be mutants. With nothing to refute it, his first child was human, just like his parents were.

    Making them not mutants creates so many plot holes.

    It's ridiculous and it annoys me how comic book movies sometimes influence the source material.

    It was terrible, especially considering the reasons it was done for. And it's even more funny with Wanda now being a human who committed the mutant sterilization back then. Did they even think about it? But who cares, Marvel is long since the place of shady characters within the elites, so it's all fine.

    Problem is, Mags/twins relations were dead-end. Nobody ever bothered to do something with it and eventually we got that messed up HoM. Even AFTER that venom wasn't stopped from being spat and honestly if that was their eternal loop of relationship, then I'm willing to accept this retcon wholeheartedly. I do think it's a waste of potential and atrocious way to dismiss years of continuity, but with the writing they were given, it's better this way. And if this is the only reason to accept that, Marvel has nothing to be proud of, for certain not for their creativity.

    It was a stupid retcon made out of spite.
