      Does this mean we can retro-con the retro-con and make them Magneto's kids again?

    I would say definitely yes, when the deal receives whatever federal approvals it needs.



    Quote:
    But should it be? I would go with no. I was reading the Wikipedia article on Wanda and it made my head spin.


That's partly due to the article being rather messily and not always correctly updated (for instance, it incorrectly claims that Django Maximoff and his wife are now Wanda's real parents and does not mention Django's sister Natalya).

    The madness needs to stop. Continue forward with the current origin story and set aim at the future instead of the past.


No, continue with the story as it was before the change, then you can set your aim to the future and don't have to return to the past to answer the questions left over from the latest retcon (starting with: Who is Wanda and Pietro's father?). So just reveal that that retcon was all a lie (even with decompression you can do that in a few pages) and go forward into the future.

    Innate ability to wield magic without any training at all is interesting, especially when training is layered on top of that. That has been her basic story for a while now. The innate ability being a Homo Superior mutation always made sense and still would. But genetic manipulation works too and makes her more unique. It puts her in the same club with 'Deadpool. A complicated relationship with the High Evolutionary is at least as interesting as anything with Magneto.


Um, no.
Magneto is one of Marvel's foremost villains (and sometimes hero) and his character is one of the most fascinating ones of all Marvel. The High Evolutionary is pretty flat as a character and tends to be used first and foremost as a deus ex machina. Compared to Magneto he is second or third rate. Genetic manipulation and a convoluted relationship with the High Evolutionary does not make Wanda unique, but puts her in the same category as her fellow Avenger, (the original) Spider-Woman. Not to mention that it would not be the first time that an origin in which the HE was involved was later revealed as incorrect - it happened before with Spider-Woman and Gwen Stacy's clone.
