Greetings comic book fans,
If you’ve been a fan of the X-Men as long as I have (my first issue was #130, first appearance of the Dazzler, but more on that in a future post), you already know these two mutants. They were part of the original Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and went on to illustrious careers as heroes with the Avengers in later years. Like many of the characters you’ve read about on this blog, Wanda and Pietro Maximoff have played integral roles in some of the most important events in Marvel history.
It’s Wanda’s utterance of the words “No More Mutants” that brings about the near-total annihilation of the x-gene on Earth-616 and who can forget the House of M, where Wanda’s wish for a “better” world gave Marvel’s superheroes their greatest fantasies come true as Magneto ushered in an era of mutant domination (with the sad side effect of human oppression).
In this Marvel Origins edition, learn how these scared wanderers were taken in by Magneto and how their lives evolved from there.
This is a must-read for Marvel fans, the issue is available on Marvel Unlimited here. Get it while you can!
Until next time,
