Avengers: Age Of Ultron Primer – Scarlet Witch

3 of 4

Scarlet Witch’s Kin

As mentioned in the primer for Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, in other publications, has an eyebrow-raising relationship with her brother.  In Marvel Comics’ Ultimate Marvel imprint, the Maximoff twins defect from Magneto’s, their supposed father’s, Brotherhood of Mutant Supremacy and join the Ultimates.  Wolverine — secretly spying on them — witness an incestuous relationship between the two.

At one point, it’s suggested that Wolverine may have fathered both Peter and Wanda Maximoff after a tryst with Magneto’s lover, Magda.

In Avengers & X-Men: AXIS #7, Magneto’s paternal relationship with the Maximoff twins was retconned out.  This occurred after an inverted Scarlet Witch tried to cast a spell that would only strike down family members, but Magneto was left standing — while Quicksilver fell.

Next: Where can we see her in action?
