    People, Wanda could have made Magneto no her parent just by unconsciously wishing it to be true, especially because her mind and morals were altered, it happened during the axist event in which the villains became good and the heroes became evil.

    or the Magneto we have isnt her father, because the Magneto that was her father died in Genosha, and this Magneto is a creation of her from her crazy pre-mday days, because she couldnt tolerate the loss. so, in a way, it's true, she isnt his daughter, she is his creator.

    Well History of the Marvel Universe # 3 isn't helping to clear things up. It states Max Einsenhardt spoilers:
    recruited a group of mutants himself in opposition to charles and it lists Quicksilver and the Sacrlet Witch and also shows a picture.
    end of spoilers so now it could literally go either way but seems more likely.
    Don't let anyone else hold the candle that lights the way to your future because only you can sustain the flame.

    Honestly, I've always thought of Wanda and Pietro as the token mutants of the greater MU. It seemed that they didn't really care that much about the ongoing mutant struggle and every time when they confront an X-Man (Wanda's exchange with Rogue in Uncanny Avengers comes to mind), they come off as blasze and holier than thou due to their standing as Avengers.

    I disregard the retcon after nearly 45 years of reading Marvel comics.
    I believe they are mutants but are associated with the Avengers.
    Pretty much this. I really saw that retcon as a total fuck you to X-Fans over the movie rights. One of many.

    They are humans that Magneto personally should murder.

    I think that's true for Wanda, but not for Pietro.

    There were a couple issues in PAD's X-Factor that touched upon this as well, even having Pietro tell Doc Samson that he didn't feel like a part of (or even look like he belonged with) X-Factor, and the mutant community at large.

    And frankly, that would be a really great thread to explore further. "Am I mutant enough to be a part of the mutant community?" That's a common question that suburban teens of color tend to ask themselves, and even nerds of color at conventions. Wayne Brady was on Chappelle Show where he challenged that joke (tongue-in-cheek, of course). The Farewell has a strong subtext of Awkwafina's character and whether or not she wasn't Chinese enough to really be with her family, and it was bittersweet.

    Father: Mephisto
    Mother: no one

    Makes less sense. Wanda is not really that much integral to X-men lore.
    He is the rock that their island nation is built upon. And he is still very much a leader of his people, the people of Krakoa know him and what he has done for them over the years, and they look up to him. He is the head of the X-Men. He might not be RULING Krakoa, but he is definitely leading it.

    Or she just doesn't act like mutants and X-franchise is not the only thing that mattered in the grander MU.
    That's a thing with relatively isolated franchises, outsiders don't get to be the savior or problem solver, that is not their roles in the story.
    The same reason why X-franchise has this everyone being an asshole to us narrative.

    I'll always think of them as Magneto's kids.

    I only think that's important for Quicksilver.

    Similarly, I think it's important that Quicksilver is a mutant.

    For some reason, I've never thought of Billy and Tommy as mutants, and I think I'd prefer they weren't. Can't put my finger on why. I guess "reality warped to have powers" is good enough to me.

    It's just Marvel Comics being extra reactionary without much thought put into their actions.
