    No, I admitted no such thing. Irrelevant =/= indifferent. What I was saying is that being Magneto's daughter does not make her position worse and NOT being Magneto's daughter does not make it better, after you claimed the opposite. As far as her STORY goes (which is something I did not even address in my last post), I'd say there are quite a few good reasons to see it as preferable for her to be Magneto's daughter. One that immediately springs to mind is that a lot of already existing stories hinged on Magneto being her and Pietro's father and none of them were improved, indeed most of them were diminished by the later retcon that Magneto wasn't their father. All the retcon did was take an already complicated story and add an unnecessary further complication. So I say, get rid of it as they got rid of the retcon that made Magneto a Gypsy.

God forbid one leap to the assumption that irrelevant = indifferent. Perhaps you could have used a different wording to avoid the confusion all together.

    Well, you're entitled to your opinion, but absent of valid reasons to make that change (which Marvel made for reasons that were not story-related but only came out of their dispute with Fox) it is nothing more than a personal preference.

Yes I have a personal preference. You have a personal preference. For some reason you think you are entitled to yours and that I'm not entitled to mine. And this is a character who has routinely been rewritten.

By my count she's had 4 sets of parents. Robert and Madeline Frank. Django and Marya Maximoff. Magnus and Magda. Natlya Maximoff and unknown. Plus High Evolutionary also called the twins his children in a story a few years back. So no I don't think her history is something sacred that should be upheld. Her history is a distorted abomination. What's it hurt to add or delete one more thing in all of this nonsense?
