Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are no longer mutants


Marvel has already been planning on making the X-Men and Fantastic Four less relevant. Fans have speculated that the reasoning behind this is so that they can put less emphasis on the movies, since Fox has the movie rights for both the X-Men and the Fantastic Four universes. We’ve already seen this in the comics with Wolverine dying, many people being turned into an Inhuman (which gives us that mutant vibe), and the Fantastic Four going bye-bye.

Marvel isn’t done yet. Next week, Uncanny Avengers #4 will be doing away with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver’s mutant origin. (They were supposedly Magneto’s children.) A preview has been released, and it shows Magneto finding out that he isn’t the father all along. This should make the Master of Magnetism very happy.

If he isn’t their father, then who is? It turns out that their parents are actually the original parents before Marvel changed it to Magneto. (The original Romani parents are Django and Marya Maximoff.)

So yeah, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch aren’t mutants. Does this mean Fox won’t have the rights to use them, since they aren’t mutants anymore?

Spoiler alert if you haven’t seen Avengers: Age of Ultron yet. It turns out that Marvel didn’t have big plans for Quicksilver, since he got killed off at the end.
