Hero Datafiles: The Maximoff Twins

Howdy, True Believers!

Alright. Let’s get one thing straight. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are Magneto’s kids. Rick Remender, Joss Whedon, and Joe Quesada can say nothing to convince me otherwise!


Of all the things that came with the Marvel NOW 2015 initiative, none has sat worse with me than changing the Maximoff’s parentage. I can understand why they changed it – because of the licensing debacles with Fox Studios – but I don’t think it warranted changing years of canon to appease movie goers who may decide to read the comics.

Reupholstering canon for superficial changes reminds me a little too much of DC’s New 52 Initiative… -shudder-tumblr_nhnxolJzOQ1tob7k5o9_500

Regardless of what should or should not be, the matter of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver’s parentage is…. vague. Whatever they are, with their recent introduction into the MCU in Avengers: Age of Ultron and push to the forefront of Marvel NOW 2015, Wanda and Petros have become more popular than ever before.

Presented below are both the twins, fully powered and ready to rumble. May they bring plenty of “mutant” mayhem to your games!

Enjoy and excelsior!

I first sat around a table and rolled dice in 2008. I've been in love with role-playing games since then, especially those with a strong narrative focus built into the mechanics. You can find me on Facebook/Twitter @MrBananaSocks or at my blog Same Kind of Nerdy as Me. Be sure to also listen to my actual-play podcast Mistconceptions on iTunes and Soundcloud.

  1. Awesome! This is right on time, too, as I’m working on an X-Force one-shot where my players are recruited to do the unthinkable: Kill the Scarlet Witch. I’m imagining quite a bit of mayhem and bloodshed…

      Oh geez! That sounds quite chaotic! I hope it encourages some great roleplaying and in-character discussions at your table!
