Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, also known as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch , are some of the most complex and complicated characters in the world of comic books. With backstories that encompass different family trees, not knowing who or what they are, and with powers that seem to unlock more tragedies than they know what to do with, these two sibling superheroes are as interesting as they are confusing.
Although they are brother and sister, their relationship takes twists and turns not normally known to most siblings. Because of the many different universes and storylines they cross over into, there's a lot that goes on between Wanda and Pietro, and more often than not it's not what anybody ever expects to happen.
The relationship between Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver is not one which usually gets a lot of attention, as it is normally the bond between Scarlet Witch and The Vision that gets highlighted. I you're thinking this is because Vision and Wanda share a romantic connection, well, get ready to have your mind blown and your eyes pop as we delve into the nitty gritty of this brother and sister duo. If ever there were two characters who had some major daddy issues, they're definitely Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
Boasting one of the most complicated and murky family trees to exist in the world of comic books, this brother and sister duo have good reason to be a little messed up when it comes to knowing who they are and where they come from. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were first introduced as villainous characters in when they made their debut in the fourth issue of Uncanny X-Men.
Their births were overseen by Bova, a cow-woman midwife, who had been created by the High Evolutionary as part of their experiments to create intelligent anamorphic creatures called The New Men. Bova had been created specifically in order to nurture and raise children, so when Magda fled to the mountains and abandoned her newborn twins, it was Bova who took care of them and raised them for a while.
Bova tried very hard to find adoptive parents for Pietro and Wanda, and finally she found a willing couple in the Maximoffs who ended up taking in the twins and giving them their surname. Twins are interesting people. As much as film and TV like to paint a stereotypical portrait of twins being very often the same, even creepily so, the truth is that usually these two people who happen to be born close together are very different, often wildly so.
Well, such is the case with Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, who are very different in almost every single way. However, despite their contrasting behaviors, they do end up balancing each other out. Quicksilver is super fast at everything he does. Not only does he move at super speed, but so does his temper. Easily frustrated and quick to get upset about things, Quicksilver seems to annoy easily, which is most likely due to the fact that the rest of the world is too slow for him.
In contrast, Scarlet Witch is much more in tune with her surroundings and is very connected to the universe. Wanda only agreed to be a part of the gang in the first place because she felt like she owed Magneto after he saved her and Quicksilver from an angry mob. Because Quicksilver and his sister shared such a tight bond, he decided to and stay too. Every time we see the brother and sister trying to leave The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, Magneto becomes abusive, making it almost impossible for the twins to leave.
Eventually, as we know, Wanda and Pietro succeed in leaving The Brotherhood, and the Avengers in issue Over the years, Wanda Maximoff went through a lot - lke a crazy amount. In fact, she is arguably the superhero with the most tragic story, having gone through more tragedies and more hardships than most people should ever have to endure. From not knowing her parentage to basically losing the love of her life, Scarlet Witch has gone through it all.
The one person she could always count on, however, was her brother Pietro, who stuck by her side through thick and thin. Once again, although Quicksilver was reluctant to this villainous crew, he pitched in his forces in order to stay close to his sister and make sure she was okay. This was big news, as up until then, it was assumed that they were. They leerned that The High Evolutionary stole the twins from their birth parents, Django and Marya Maximoff, and performed experiments on them, genetically modifying their chromosomes in order to develop superpowers. As Wanda and Pietro grew up and their powers evolved, the people in the small village they were living in in Eastern Europe began to catch on to their strange ways and turned against them.
The villagers assumed these two kids were mutants, and thus Wanda and Pietro grew up thinking they were. Now that we know that Django and Marya Maximoff were really Wanda and Pietro's real parents this whole time, it's safe to accurately put forward that the two twins are of Eastern European heritage, and are of Romani background.
The Romani people have faced a lot of persecution and discrimination over the centuries, and this identify of being an outcast and shunned by the rest is obviously mirrored in the other aspects of Wanda and Pietro's identity, as in the fact that they are shunned for being superpowered.
The twins grew up for a time in a Romani camp, and their identity is deeply rooted in wandering and travelling. Again, this brother and sister duo move from back and forth from bad side to good, and they are constantly fleeing tragedy and trouble. There has been some contention over the way Pietro and Wanda were portrayed in the Marvel films, being played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. Many criticized the studio for whitewashing these characters and accusing the filmmakers of not taking into the characters' Romani background.
In fact, the only real nod towards the idea that Wanda and Pietro are Romani when they are introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron is through their costumes. It is clear that the clothes they wear in the film, especially when we are first introduced to them, are not as sleek and polished as the other heroes' outfits are, as if Wanda and Pietro would just pick whatever clothes they could find or steal. Aside from their sartorial choices though, their Romani heritage is kept on lock. Well, Wanda and Pietro Maximoff are very closely-knit siblings. They are always there for each other, no matter what, and they seem to be very dependent on one another, not only for survival but for happiness too.
It ran deeper than that. Surely there's nothing weird or freaky going on here - right? Going through an ordeal of great consequence has a way of bringing people together more closely, especially family members. Since their debut appearance in the 4th issue of Uncanny X-Men , Wanda and Pietro have been standing strong together against all the odds, trials, and tribulations that have been hurled at them.
Scarlet Witch too was always there to comfort and console Quicksilver, and the two learned quickly to depend on one another for emotional and psychological support. We have seen the twins go through thinking they were adopted, being abused by mobs in their hometown, facing the evil of Magneto together, thinking their father was a villain, facing the world alone together, and so much more.
Leob also wrote it Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver taking their relationship to the next, illegal level. Granted, The Ultimates was based in an alternate universe and nothing really counts outside of it, but still, once fans read that about Wanda and Pietro, it was pretty hard to unsee and forget. While at first The Ultimates kind of just played along and kept hinting at an " in the family " relationship between Wanda and Pietro, in its third series, the writers finally just decided to let loose and spell it out for the readers in a very overt way.
The scene is set between Captain America and The Wasp. Cap has just had a bit of an altercation with Pietro about the way Wanda is dressed, and in typical quick-tempered Quicksilver fashion, he flies off the handle and threatens Cap, telling him to mind his own business. When The Wasp then tells Captain America that Pietro's like that because he loves his sister, poor, innocent Rogers is like, "duh, they're siblings. The thing is, The Wasp is explaining all of this to Captain America like it's the most natural thing in the world. She accuses him of being behind the times, saying that his s brain clearly isn't computing the very obvious and very casual fact.
Captain America might not know how to call an Uber, but we're pretty sure he's up to speed with this whole thing being gross. This is definitely some next-level Targaryen stuff. It probably won't come as a surprise to you to know that the two actors who play Pietro and Wanda Maximoff weren't exactly begging Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon to highlight the romance that the two siblings have low-key become associated with.
Of course, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays Pietro, and Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Wanda, were aware of the special, close bond the brother and sister pair share. When asked about how they were going about getting into the mindset for their respective roles, Taylor-Johnson and Olsen touched on the deep-rooted connection the siblings share, but offered their own take on the close bond we see come alive in the film.
They encompass a whole family unit, having gone through so much tragedy and only ever having each other to depend on. Emotionally, she can stabilize him, and he protects her physically, vice-versa. Olsen and Taylor-Johnson, having done their research on their characters, knew that the twins were often perceived as being overly close. Aaron and I have been playing a little bit with those kinds of images just for ourselves. Although they're both great actors in their own right, their ease around one another was probably helped by the fact that they had already starred Godzilla together the year before Ultron was released.
In Godzilla, Taylor-Johsnon and Olsen play a couple, which seems fine, until you start thinking about the fact that they played a brother and sister duo with a weirdly close relationship just shortly after. There have been many instances in films where actors switch up their roles and go from playing romantic couples to taking on family roles alongside each other, but knowing that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's relationship during their comic book history, paired with the fact that we had only just recently seen Olsen and Taylor-Johnson play a loving couple, made this a little weird.
When watching Ultron , some of the uncomfortable closeness we've alluded to between Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch does creep through, and this is just made all the more bizarre knowing that Olsen and Taylor-Johnson had romanced each other in their action flick. One more thing for you to have to get your head around. If this is the case, apologies. In the series called Ultimates 3 , we learn that Wolverine had an affair with Magda, who gives birth to Quicksilver and Scarlet.
The Ultimates writersseemingly wanted to give their readers that extra little bit of shock value, so instead of just leaving it at that, they went a step further. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver clearly already had enough daddy issues as it was, without bringing Wolverine into the picture, so if someone could please write in a therapist storyline, that would be great for everyone involved.
One of the most famous Marvel love stories is that of Scarlet Witch and The Vision, who not only fall for each other but later end up settling down, getting married, and having kids. It was always a bit strange for some that a so-called mutant and an android would not only have a relationship resulting in marriage but that a family would also come out of it. As it turns out, this happy family unit wasn't all that it appeared to at first be, as we gradually learn that nothing but tragedy would await this seemingly happy couple.
In fact, in Vision and the Scarlet Witch , we're told that Wanda's kids only ever exist when she thinks about them, and seem to be figments of her imagination. In another telling of their story, Scarlet Witch's children turn out to be pieces of evil Mephisto. It's safe to say Scarlet Witch and Vision's relationship is "complicated. However, to add extra stress on her relationship with lover Vision, it turns out that Wanda's own brother Quicksilver was completely against her relationship with the android.
Quicksilver was so set against his sister getting together with Vision, that the two siblings, whom we've gotten to know as being practically inseparable, became estranged for a long time because of their disagreement over the relationship.
Wanda and Pietro Maximoff have a little bit of a weird situation when it comes to portraying them in films. Because they appear in both X-Men and Avengers comics, this puts them in a bit of an awkward position when it comes to straddling both Fox, which owns the rights to X-Men, and Marvel Studios, which owns The Avengers. It got a little complicated when Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were appearing in both Avengers: Age of Ultron and X-Men: Days of Future Past , as both studios owned the rights to these characters, just in different ways.
This means that getting these two characters' backstory communicated effectively and in a straightforward manner will get tricky as time goes on. This is especially true, since the Marvel films weren't legally allowed to talk about "mutants," as this right strictly belonged to Fox. It will be interesting to see how these characters are developed and which elements are chosen from their vast and complicated backstory to be brought into the plots of future films. It seems like Marvel has chosen to solve the rights problems by altering the source material, and then by potentially acquiring Fox through parent company Disney.
Many people speculated that this was supposed to be Scarlet Witch with her brother, but it was revealed that this was not the case by director Bryan Singer. However, it was also unveiled, that Wanda Maximoff was almost featured in the film. According to Singer, because of the complicated nature of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver being owned by both Marvel and Fox, he was going to hint at Scarlet Witch being around, but decided to cut this element from the film. I ended up cutting it. Had Singer not cut this part of the scene, it would have nicely set up an opportunity for Scarlet Witch to slip into future X-Men sequels.
Who knows what the Disney-Fox deal could bring. Wanda Maximoff went through a heap of tragedy following her marriage to Vision. Not only did Vision end up losing all emotional capability, but Wanda also found out that her kids weren't actually real. Not only does she lose the capacity to remember her kids, but then later when she is reminded that they once existed, but only in her mind, she understandably breaks down and is driven into a wild, dangerous frenzy. As Wanda becomes increasingly unstable, her powers becoming more powerful than she seems to be able to accurately control, the Avengers start to worry that she will not only be a threat to herself but to everyone around her.
The group discusses whether or not they should just stand by as Wanda becomes an ever-increasing hazard or whether they should end her in order to potentially save themselves and humanity. Quicksilver was obviously concerned about the fate of his beloved sister and understandably wanted to do everything in his power to prevent her from being destroyed. He therefore convinced his sister to use her powers to create a utopia where everyone gets their own desired happy ending. However, Wolverine and a few other superheroes caught on to the fact that this was a created, false reality they were living in, and confronted Scarlet Witch about this fact.
